Game Informer writes: "Animal remains and other filth crunch underfoot as you make your way through the decayed rooms of an abandoned doll factory. A deserted floodlight splashes your shadow across some peeling wallpaper. You hear mechanical dolls crawling towards you somewhere in the dark. Then miraculously, and without your consent, the shadow in front of you begins to move, and you realize, with horror, that it doesn't belong to you.
Bloodshot is an atmospheric powerhouse. I haven't admired a game's environments this much since BioShock, and the game has plenty of tense moments that will leave you hyperventilating like a chubby marine about to charge Omaha beach. Which is why – since Condemned excels so well in certain areas – that it's a little sad the game falters, if only slightly, in a few other places."
