Condemned: Criminal Origins (PC)

 

Raw, savage beatings are the order of the day in Condemned: Criminal Origins, an original first-person action game from the makers of F.E.A.R. The game was originally released for the Xbox 360, but has now been faithfully adapted to the PC. You play as...

Raw, savage beatings are the order of the day in Condemned: Criminal Origins, an original first-person action game developed exclusively for the Xbox 360. You play as an investigator tailing a serial killer while struggling to keep your own sanity as...

The Xbox 360 launch was marked by a selection of games that mostly featured sequels (or a prequel in the case of Perfect Dark Zero) and ports of popular sports titles. King Kong was based on an already-existing intellectual property so in fact there...

When all is said and done, smashing a street thug over the head with a crowbar and then snapping his neck with your bare hands has never felt this good. Condemned: Criminal Origins is all about delivering a disturbing atmosphere and brutal melee...

If you can't beat them, bludgeon them

Compelling plot delivers plenty of creepy kicks.; Unique approach to an otherwise straightforward style of game

Map, please

Ethan’s voice sounds weirdly a lot younger than he actually looks.

The lambs are still screaming -- you're next

Good god, this is scary ; Truly terrifying, beautiful environments ; Excellent sound design

Easy to get lost -- and frustrated ; Investigating may be boring to some folks ; Areas should be fully destructable

Slow paced, single player games played from the first person perspective are nothing new. This sort of game has a small but dedicated cult following amongst PC gamers in the US as well as console gamers in Japan. What is new for Sega and developer...

And stay tuned to GZ for "CSI : Hell" … up next

Overall, Condemned takes a well-used gameplay genre and adds in enough newer elements to make it a unique and fun gaming experience. Unfortunately, this may be only a "one time through" for a lot of you … but much like a good DVD movie it's one that I...

Product Specifications

Developed by award-winning Monolith Productions for next-gen consoles and PC, Condemned revels in an unnatural level of psychological tension as you use instincts, forensic tools and melee combat to track serial killers and bring them to justice. You are Ethan Thomas, an FBI agent in the Serial Crimes Unit, whose pursuit of relentless serial killers leads him through murky urban environments saturated with sociopaths, lurking with intent on the periphery of humanity. A visceral, atmospheric thriller, Condemned is best played with the surround-sound cranked up and the lights switched off. The power of next-gen hardware enables Condemned to feature photorealistic backdrops, lifelike physics and highly sophisticated artificial intelligence. Weapons and ammunition are scarce, leaving you vulnerable to the game's gallery of mentally deranged criminals. Careful detective work and precision reflexes are your primary means of survival. Inspired in part by films of the psychological thriller sub-genre, Condemned strikes an intense, breathless pace. You'll never be sure what horror lies in wait...
