Very unique game, hasn't been much like it since

Good sequel to the original condemned: criminal origins (which you should play before this) the gameplay is fairly solid and builds on the unique fighting and investigative aspects of the original.
If you're looking for a unique FPS/horror game that is legitimately creepy and scary, buy this and the game before.
My main complaint with this sequel is the direction the gameplay and the story take about 2/3 through the game (the original struck a good balance between the supernatural whilst keeping the game gritty and grounded in its own universe) but the sequel, seemingly because there was an onus on it being an AA game begins to play on it far too much and loses quite a lot of what made the original great. Even so, the improved gameplay mechanics still make this a good game, especially if you are a fan of the original or horror games in General.
