Condemned: Criminal Origins Review
This first-person action game hits you like a sledgehammer with its astounding, stunningly creepy presentation, but it sacrifices opportunities for more shocks and surprises by settling for repetition.

CGRundertow CONDEMNED: CRIMINAL ORIGINS for Xbox 360 Video Game Review
Condemned: Criminal Origins review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of Condemned: Criminal Origins for Xbox 360.
Released in 2005, this game was developed by Monolith and was published by Sega. Condemned: Criminal Origins is a horror game with emphasis put on investigation. You play as a wrongly accused detective who is searching for the man who really killed his partners! Although the game isn’t extremely scary, it should give the creeps to all but the most monstrous of gamers.
This video review features video gameplay footage of Condemned: Criminal Origins for Xbox 360 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room’s Gabe.

Condemned: Criminal Origins has one of the best 1st person combat systems around, with combat encounters carrying a lot of weight in those hits.
It has an unsettling atmosphere that evokes dread in its approach to horror. I can’t think of many western titles that can match it on that front.
It has great pacing, with short bursts of relief before the dread makes its way back in, and it doesn’t wear out its welcome.
Even all these years later since its release in late 2005, Condemned stands as one of the better horror titles around, one which I consider a masterclass in horror.
If you do want to check out Condemned, and I highly recommend you do so, take a look at the pcgamingwiki page for it to get it running smoothly on modern systems.
