From the Manufacturer

    The hunt for a serial killer has never been so terrifyingly real.

    What twists the mind of an ordinary human into a serial killer? Assigned to the Serial Crimes division Agent Ethan Thomas must answer this question and bring the worst of society to justice. His solve rate is the best in the bureau... perhaps too good.

    While investigating the growing list of serial killers Agent Thomas concludes that something is twisting the bodies and souls of those that society has left behind. The homeless addicted and deranged are rising from the city's underbelly and committing mindless acts of violence. Could there be an unseen connection between the increasing brutality of the latest serial killings and the increasing crime rate? This question is pushed to the forefront after Agent Thomas is framed for the murder of two police officers. Now he must solve the murders to stop the killings and exonerate himself from the crimes of which he is accused. As FBI agent Ethan Thomas you rely on sharp instincts and sophisticated forensic tools to investigate crime scenes, collect evidence, and find clues that will lead you to the killers. With danger lurking in every shadow you need whatever weapons you can find to stay alive. If you run out of bullets you will have to fight with a fire axe, shovel, pipe, two-by-four, or whatever you can pry from the environment around you. You will need to make sure nothing stops you as you try to uncover exactly who...or what is behind the grisly killings plaguing the city.

    • Weapons and ammunition are scarce, leaving the player vulnerable to the game's mentally deranged criminals
    • Careful detective work and precision reflexes are your primary means of survival
    • Intelligent enemies respond strategically to your offensive and defensive maneuvers
    • High-level physics allow players to manipulate background items, which respond realistically when picked up, kicked, or bumped
    • Tightly wound story, backed with strong Character development and major plot twists

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game - bit short. June 28, 2006
By a7x1337
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First off, I will say that I have not been as genuinely frightened since playing F.E.A.R. Condemned's atmosphere provides enough fear, it doesn't need to rely on the "Boo!" tactics of games such as Doom 3.

The storyline is captivating, although the end leaves a bit to be desired. Some things go unexplained; I'm hoping that means a sequel is in store.

The gameplay is very nice, and the rough melee action leaves you a twisted satisfaction - nothing quite like slashing someone with a meat cleaver :).

Some of the complaints people had were 'the enemies look the same' and 'it was too short.' The first of these complaints I would not agree with. Some enemies are recycled late in the game, but it certainly didn't make it any less fun. The length of the game, however, was slightly disappointing. Although, I suppose I would rather have a very fun 10 hour game than a mediocre 15 hour game.

All in all, a VERY underrated game. I strongly recommend this for all gamers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Screwed up and bold June 6, 2006
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Condemned has to be one of the more screwed up games I've played in the last years...Actually, until now, this would be one of the first bizarre games I've played. It's about a serial killer who is playing around with the police by committing a series of brutal murders. These people who were killed were not random people, no, they were other serial killers. You are an FBI Agent (Ethan Thomas) who is sent in to track a serial killer down by unraveling the clues he leaves behind. With the story, you encounter a lot of other beings who are unexplainably deranged and they come at you with either a pipe ripped from the inside of an old wall or a piece of thick wood with rusty nails sticking out of it. You usually only find guns on occassion, but you mainly do whatever you can to survive...You use a pipe, big pieces of wood with either nails or bolts sticking out of them, or anything else from big signs or boards. You beat the living hell out of anything and everything that comes at you to stay alive and keep coming closer to the truth behind this killer. That isn't it though, you discover more about yourself (the character you play in the game) and learn that you've had exams with a doctor and he finds some abnormalities in your brain, but I'll stop at that. You begin to go a little bit insane yourself as you keep seeing this strange monster-looking being in black and white illusions...All the way to the end. This game gets into your skin. People often compare this game to FEAR because it uses the FEAR engine (which I don't think it does, but I could be wrong). Don't compare this game to FEAR because they are not the same. Overall, an interesting game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun in a twisted sort of way. July 4, 2006
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The the first thing this game reminded me of was Doom 3. It's dark, creepy and there are bad guys who sneak up on you and all that good happy stuff. But then again, this game is nothing like Doom 3 because I actually enjoyed it. You're an FBI dude and you are investigating a killing when a bunch of crazy stuff starts happening and that's all I'm going to say so as not to give it all away. Now that we got that over and done with, the action in this game is brutal! You're only allowed one weapon at a time and you can't save ammo either. Creepy homeless crackheads will come up to you, reach over into the wall, pull out 2x4s and start trying to bash your head in and you'll have to do the same thing to them if you want to survive. The story behind this game is really pretty cool, but there are some loose ends left open when you finish it. The game also isn't very long, I believe it took me about 14 hours to finish, but it was still very fun and I enjoyed every minute of it. Overall, this is a good game if you want something with a slightly different take on the way the action in a game should be and if you want something dark, creepy and attention grabbing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Something scary and new August 5, 2009
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Condemned: Criminal Origins was unlike any FPS/Survival horror game I've ever played. It wasn't a run and gun nor was it a typical limited ammo survival game. It was more like a run from your enemies and make every swing/bullet count type of game. The story starts out pretty straight forward, you're an FBI agent framed for murder by an unknown serial killer. As you progress through the story there are some twists and turns making things a somewhat convoluted but still understandable. The story however isn't what the key part of the game is but rather the combat. It's probably the most brutal and realistic game I've ever played when it comes to melee combat. Not for the player who is turned off by violence and in your face scares. Here's my take;


+ Extremely scary and creepy atmosphere. I play a lot of survival horror and FPS games and I honestly don't think I've jumped/gasped/let out startled yells this much since I played the Silent Hill series. It's also the first game I've played where I've never been so afraid of an enemy with a gun. (If an enemy has a gun, get to them as quick as you can and get it out of their hands. Not only will you live longer but you'll be able to pick up more bullets as they won't be wasting them on trying to kill you.)

+ Excellent ambient music and atmospheric sounds. Once again very Silent Hillesque with everything from whispered voices, screams, banging noises and labored breathing. The gun sounds are also very realistic. Do yourself a favor and play with all lights off and the sound turned up to fully experience what the game has to offer.

+ Brutal melee combat. The combat is unforgiving and violent. You really feel like you're fighting for your own life against your attackers.
