Condemned: Criminal Origins!

The latest from gaming star Sega has arrived, but will this new IP be able to sustain your attention?

First Impressions: Whenever possible, we try to give our loyal website viewers the most video footage and most in depth unbiased reviews imaginable. Part of that development is our "initial impressions" where we offer up our first impressions of the title that we are playing.

This gives our website visitors more of clear understanding of what to first expect out of the game when they initially pop it into their consoles.

If you scroll to the bottom of the page in the Rent vs. Buy section of the review and do not see the "final impressions" assessment then it's safe to say that you are reading our initial impression of the game. Once the final impression is up, there will be no further video or review done to that particular title.

Final Impressions: The final impression is just that, our completed breakdown and overall thoughts on the game based off of our entire game playing time.

You can locate the final impressions assessment in the "Rent vs. Buy" section of the review (always located at the very end of all of our reviews). Here you will be able to read our final thoughts on the title and also see any potential grade changes that were made to the game as well (higher or lower). Should a grading change occur, it will be clearly noted with the previous grade, the new grade, and why the change occurred.

Although this approach is more time consuming and requires many more man hours, our entire goal has always been to provide the best and completely unbiased reviews possible and we feel that the inclusion of the Initial Impressions and Final Impressions sections will give you a better view of what to expect from a new game.

All that we ask in return is for you to continue to support Krakrabbit.com by visiting the site and letting others know about our cause. Together we can supply our fellow gamers with the most impartial information so they can make an informed decision on whether to buy or rent this particular title.

Sanity Chase: The story of Condemned places you in the shoes of criminal investigator Ethan Thomas on his journey to track down a serial killer, as well as fight to keep his sanity.

Condemned's plotline delivers a lot of teases, but few actual, solid facts that progress the story very far...perhaps to leave room for a sequel?

The biggest strength that Condemned possesses is the creepy and unsettling atmosphere that gives you plenty of scares throughout the game.

From demented killers with sliced up faces that jump out at you, to a mouse that made a small noise in a dark room, you will undoubtedly come quite close to soiling yourself during the game.

Kill, Scream, Kill: The gameplay and combat of Condemned is very intense and somewhat revolutionizes the common combat system.

When you engage an enemy, you will be sent into a sort of virtual boxing match.

You will be forced to plan your attacks and bide your time until you have the opportunity to sock your foe over the head with a toilet seat or a pipe.

Despite the intense and personal combat, the gameplay in Condemned can become increasingly repetitive over a short amount of time.

After you manage to kill a few enemies, the combat and the gameplay that is along with it becomes monotonous and plodding.

Rarely after the first few encounters with foes do you manage to pull out an enjoyable experience.

Rent vs. Buy: Condemned: Criminal Origins starts out as an impressive game but fails to keep up the pace as the hours wear on.

The creepy atmosphere and occasionally strong combat cannot hide the fact that the gameplay is droning and does not provide much enjoyability.

If you are a fan of FPS games or creepy adventures, there are better places to look then Condemned: Criminal Origins.
