Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Developed by award-winning Monolith Productions for the next-generation consoles and PC, Condemned allows players to experience an unnatural level of psychological tension as they use their instincts, forensic tools, and melee combat to track serial killers and bring them to justice. Gamers will play as Ethan Thomas, an FBI agent in the Serial Crimes Unit (SCU), whose pursuit of relentless serial killers leads him through detailed urban environments filled with socio-paths who lurk on the periphery of humanity.

Presented in a first-person view for maximum visceral effect, this atmospheric thriller is best played with the surround-sound up and the lights off. Given the power of next-generation hardware, Condemned is able to feature photo-realistic backdrops, life-like physics, and highly sophisticated artificial intelligence. Weapons and ammunition are scarce, leaving the player vulnerable to the game's gallery of mentally deranged criminals. Careful detective work and precision reflexes are a player's primary means of survival. Inspired in part by the films of the psychological thriller sub-genre, Condemned maintains an intense, focused pace. Players can never be sure what waits around each corner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than You Might Think. 20 Feb. 2007
By Chris VINE VOICE
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Initially released as an early Xbox 360 title, this didn't do much business on the PC, but it's well worth the re-released discount price. It's a first person adventure, with some pretty visceral violence and a lot of nice touches. You're an FBI forensic investigator being framed for murder during a serial murder investigation.

The FEAR game engine is used again, generating the expected high-quality visuals and effects, and in general, it's really quite a creepy and unsettling title. There's not a lot of music, but a lot of sound effects, and a lot of darkness, relieved only by your faithful torch. The title is clearly intended to mimic the ambience of the film "Se7en", and it succeeds quite well in this. Enemies will appear, often silently, or sometimes in an area you can't reach yet, and I've spent quite a bit of time jumping unexpectedly as things happen without warning, including being bowled over down stairs or smacked with a lead pipe. Other touches rachet up the tension nicely too; dust settling from overhead floorboards as someone stalks you from the floor above, crazed characters fighting each other, and so on.

There are only two downsides. Firstly, the use of the FEAR engine. It requires a fairly heavyweight PC to switch all the visual options on, although when you do, it looks terrific. You'll want at least 1GB of RAM (2GB is better), at least a P4 3.4Ghz equivalent, and a video card in 7900/X1800/X1900 with at least 256mb of video RAM to see all the bells and whistles. It'll run with slower hardware (I first played FEAR on a 6600GT video card), but you won't know what you're missing.

The second downside is reminding yourself that this isn't an FPS.

Raw, savage beatings are the order of the day in Condemned: Criminal Origins, a first-person action game from the makers of F.E.A.R. You play as an FBI agent who's struggling to keep his own sanity while tracking a serial killer and facing off against what seems like an army of depraved sociopaths.

Condemned's graphics and menu design may seem dated, but the bone-crushing hand-to-hand combat sequences make for a visceral, highly atmospheric experience that's quite unlike anything you've ever played before.

The game begins with agent Ethan Thomas on a routine assignment: Someone's been brutally murdered in a bad part of town, and he's there with the police to figure out what happened.

Without spoiling anything, let's just say that things don't quite go according to plan. Thomas winds up implicated in some serious crimes, Thomas goes off on his own, with nothing but a cell phone, a stun gun, and his forensic tools to aid him. The only other person he can depend on, save himself, seems to be a colleague of his who's willing to stay in touch by phone, helping Thomas to analyse evidence so he can slowly connect the dots that lead to some disturbing discoveries. The dark, engrossing story of Condemned starts out strong and has its moments along the way, but unfortunately, it doesn't take centre stage during what's mostly a straight-up action game with an intriguing premise.

Condemned is a first-person shooter, except instead of shooting, there's mostly just a lot of pure, bloody brawling. You've got everything from metal pipes to nail-covered two-by-fours to fire axes to sledgehammers to signposts. Each weapon is rated differently for speed, range, power, and defence, though the differences can be pretty subtle.

5.0 out of 5 stars A mature and horrific masterpiece 19 Aug. 2008
By FF
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I got this game on a bit of a fluke, i was in PC world with my mum and step-mum choosing a game, i picked this up and glanced over the back of the box, but having no idea of the gameplay or story i decided to leave be and opted for a sure-fire choice.
But my step-mum had seen it and thought it my thing so bought it for me, and, quite simply, it was the best gaming suprise of my life.
Condemned is THE survival horror.
You see while the Resident Evil and Silent Hill games were fun you more than often felt you were on an unstopple mission to kill zombies and own leather people laired in fog rather than surviving against all odds.
In Condemned it completly rips apart the old survival horror template and replaces it with somthing diffrent, and so immersive you'll find it hard to return to reality.
Condemned does somthing incredibly unique, you are never loading up your gun saying 'come on you sons of b****s' and taking on a hoard of mad men.
You are forced to fight however possible, using anything from draws, lead pipes, and pieces of wood, guns are sparce.
Imagine the scene, your in an old library with your partner, the place has been ransacked by a mad man known as Serial Killer X, up ahead you hear mad screaming and manic laughing, you advance slowly down the corridoor, glancing at Rosa just to remind yourself your not alone, then from beside you a window smashes and your forced to go and finish off your stalker, and after hitting him over the head with a pipe a couple of times you exsit, fear drenched on your face, fearing what else lies ahead, and, just after you think you'll get a breather theres a crash, a scream, and Rosa is gone, the insane drugged up tramps are swarming ahead, all that runs through your mind is fear.
