Right from the start, you can tell that Monolith is upping the ante for Condemned 2 in every way. The game opens with Ethan Thomas crushing pills and hallucinating in a dive bar, a shell of his former self. Things have not gone well in the year since he left the force. After another bar patron gives Ethan a little wink on the way out, our hero proceeds to beat the snot out of him and winds up getting tossed out on the street. This is where the twisted adventure begins.
