Remembering… Condemned: Criminal Origins

As we bellow full steam ahead towards the impending arrival of the next-generation, it’s worth looking back at how this one started. The Xbox 360 signified the starting point of our venture into HD, downloadable horse armour and the pre-order incentive; its launch line-up memorable for the successes of Call of Duty 2, the abject disappointment of Perfect Dark Zero and everything else in between. Visualising beads of sweat was the ‘in’ thing for sports games, there were sequels aplenty and Monolith showed us just how grimy a dilapidated school could look.

Fantastic game. I love its grimy, sordid plausibility, and all those run-down environments that really do feel like real, familiar places.

Possibly my favourite horror title of all time - and that's saying something.

yeah hopefully this isn't the end of this series and we will see some future titles. Very under rated series

Excellent game. Loved ripping pipes off walls, the limited ammo. Raw brutality without making that it's focus, unlike Manhunt.

This game at night with no lights on and there was a bit where a manequin came to life and I shit myself ha, this game had a lot of atmosphere a lot of games can't get close

I swear to God - I got about two minutes into the Department Store level, and the mannequins freaked me out so much I didn't pluck up the courage to return to the game for about two weeks afterwards.

The first was a classic and an amazing launch game. Wish we could get a reboot or better sequel. Bloodshot was quite a letdown for me, it didn't even feel like Condemned.

"disappointment of Perfect Dark Zero"

Come again? I played PDZ everyday for like 6 months. Also Condemned just went up on the Steam store, $7.50
