What do these ratings mean?

The Good: Gruesome, horrifying atmosphere, excellent melee combat, satisfying story

The Bad: Useless multiplayer and fight club modes, all the item hunting get distracting


I'm sure you've played the 2005 awesome survival horror game Condemned: Criminal Origins, and if you haven't go pick it up (you can get it for less than $15 now) then come back and read this review.

                    Condemned 2 leaves off where Ethan Thomas slowly becomes insane after trying to figure out all the violent crimes in the city. The game's main attraction is the new combat system. In the first you hit with RT and blocked with LT but now you can control the left and right hand with each trigger and you block by holding them both down. We get a lot more melee weapons such as toilet seats, bowling balls, bowling pins, and even bricks!

                The game also has more for you to search for in the game such as destroying sonic emitters, finding "antennas" which gives you tidbits from the news and "responses" which is a given time to hit the A button to respond to certain scenarios. (the reason why this cult is making everyone violence). While this adds more depth it's very distracting when you're trying to hear who's stalking you and trying to get sucked into the atmosphere. Speaking of that the game is very very scary. The game also is VERY dark to where you can't see anything and you have to turn your brightness up, and not to mention the almost useless flashlight. The game's gun play is better this time but isn't nearly as satisfying as the melee combat.

                The game also has a useless multiplayer mode where you play criminals vs. cops and you have to hide the evidence as criminals and find it as cops. This is both boring and stupid because the maps are very small and the cops have guns so it's almost cheating. There is also a useless fight club mode where you go into different arenas and fight to the death. This is both boring and still practically useless. The game also has a hard to understand achievement system. If you loved (or hated) the first game you'll love this game for sure.
