Condemned 2 is a game of atmosphere; an atmosphere which makes every fight, forensic minigame and non-interactive in-game cutscene much more effective. Because of its reliance on presentation, it may seem extraordinarily dated in a few years. That's the way of the industry. But right now, it's an unbridled one-of-a-kind mature ride with scant a boring moment in its 11 mission single-player campaign. Play it, but more importantly, play it in the right environment.
