Review of Condemned: Criminal Origins

Tension. That is what this game excels at. You never know when some scary hobo is going to jump out at you from nowhere and try to stove in your head with a length of pipe. You can HEAR them, and every once in a while you might SEE them, or... was that just your imagination? And all the while, you're wondering just WHAT is going ON here? Are you losing your mind? Oh yeah, and there's a serial killer who's toying with you along the way. I'm generally not a fan of when games try to shoe-horn melee combat into a first-person perspective game. It always seems to feel clunky and poorly implemented. In this particular case, it works. Every fight is a desperate struggle.
