A real contender for Resident Evil's throne.
, 11 Feb 2006
This review is from: Condemned (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I got 3 games at the time i purchased my 360,and condemned was one of those 3.
At first,when all the preview videos were being released for the 360 i was a little sceptical about this title,i am a huge Resident Evil fan and obviously saw Condemned as yet another pretender....man,was i wrong!!!
For me,this is the best of the launch titles along with Call Of Duty 2 & Kameo.
The first thing that will hit you when you load this beauty for the first time are the incredible graphics and the intense atmosphere that sucks you in.
The gameplay,although is more like an FPS,borrows alot of its 'scares' and 'pant-filling' jumps from Resident Evil series mixed with a few of the developers favourite movies...so the best way to describe Condemned is to say it is a FPS Resident Evil game,mixed with story elements and atmostphere from 'Seven' and enemies from '28 Days Later',and it all works brilliantly.
The enemy AI is nothing short of genius,if they see you coming they'll either charge at you in full force,hide or run away.
A group of enemies will also talk to each other and prepare for an ambush. The best thing however,is that they will actually run off to find a more powerful weapon,ie: if you have a crowbar and they have a stick,they will search for a large pipe or even a fire-arm.
So overall,this game is well worth a look and i'm confident you will not be dissapointed!!
