This is the first game that I purchased for my xbox360, and I have sold it since, then bought it again because I missed it so much.
Condemned is one of the greatest games that I have ever been lucky enough to have played, it looks spectacular and feels unbelievably real. I must warn you though, this game is not for the weak stomached (this is what ran through my mind as I destroyed someones face with a pipe I just tore off the wall) It is a very good survival game, the player has to make do with surrounding objects as weapons, such as signs, pipes, and planks of wood.
The game is most fulfilling if played on the hardest setting, it poses a challenge therefore and makes the finishing of the game more worthwhile.
The only downfalls of the game is the linear plot, which see's you doing what it wishes in a set manor, there is very little freedom, and and top of that the game is very short lived, I finished it within two days of playing.
But, for some reason I didn't feel disappointed when I finished playing. So much so that it is still on my shelf today.
Graphically it sets the bar high for other games to compete with, and the level of enemy AI is very good (if played on the harder setting), its also a very emotionally involving game, at points the game actually scared the hell out of me.
Overall, a good effort and worth playing. And, now that it is part of the 360 classics range, it's worth the money.
