Content of the article: "Condemned: Criminal Origins"
"Condemned: Criminal Origins is set in the fictional American city of Metro. The player takes on the role of Ethan Thomas, a crime scene investigation agent with the FBI's Serial Crime Unit, as he traverses the seedier sides of the city. His journey takes him through a number of condemned buildings as he searches for the one who framed him for murder, the evasive Serial Killer X. Along the way, Ethan must use his investigative intuition and technology to examine evidence left behind by SKX, all the while fighting off the violently psychotic denizens of Metro City, who seem to be driven to such madness by a mysterious, yet seemingly extraneous force.
Condemned: Criminal Origins places an emphasis on melee combat and puzzle solving, including searching for fingerprints and gathering evidence. Upon release, Condemned was met with moderate to good reviews by many aggregates and critics. Many reviewers cited its storyline and lack of progression as the game's biggest fault. As a reprieve, the game's solid controls and fresh approach to the horror genre were praised. A sequel, entitled Condemned 2: Bloodshot, was released in 2008 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Other media forms include an internet prequel and a planned film adaptation to expand the Condemned franchise. The developers have cited films such as The Silence of the Lambs and Seven as inspiration for the game." -Wikipedia
This game holds such a place in my heart as a classic as a true horror game in that in nails its element the way they wanted it. I remember the first time playing it with 3 of my friends back in middle school and we'd all jump from all the jumpscares and crazy homeless people methed out and all that lol. I have beaten the game at least 10 times and the story is great imo. The sequel was messy with the storyline but overall fun as well. Truly wish we get a Condemned 3 but likely not going to happen.
Anyone else a fan of this game?
