This is a game for the playstation three and if you are bored with all your games and can not afford one of the more expensive games then you can buy this for eight pound. Well it has a great wee storyline to it and it follows off from it previous game as you play the charcter of ethan thomas who has lead a life off alcholisim and also being homless too he is a a guy who now is being recruited back into the SCU to investigate a call for help from his old mentor Malcolm Vanhorn.
This is a first person action game. I like the game very much as game play is good and hard as you get into bare nuckle combats. You can also use melle weapons and shoot people too. The game also involves a bit of thinking as you have to solve the crime scene investagations making it more adventourous. I like the forensic side of the game it is a great game with a challenging side as I have just mentioned and also the graphics are also great too. The character you play is great in combat and also has some great finishing moves. The difference in this game from the previous is Condemned 2 also features more in-depth forensic investigation gameplay which I just love. The new feature in this game is it now has multiplayer with modes like deathmatch and team deathmatch bum rush and crime scenes. So there is plenty of choice with different modes. A great game different unique challenging and also cheap.
I loved the first Condemned game. Sadly it didn't come out for the PS3 (only the PC and Xbox 360), so many PS3 gamers are going to have to start with the second game, but thankfully this game eases you in well, and is out-and-out an atmospheric and intense thriller-action game that combines the best elements of numerous genres for a unique grimy experience. Believe me when I say you'll want to shower after playing this game.
You play as Ethan Thomas, a special agent who has gone rogue, and has a drinking problem to boot. As you traipse through the less desirable areas of town, you'll amass an array of unconventional weaponry, from crowbars, to lead pipes, to more heavy machinery like guns. This creates numerous ways to do away with the drug addicts and down-and-outers lining your route through the game, and the game also has a very darkly comic bent to it, for if you take a drink every so often, you will find that it improves your aim a bit. The game also does a fine job of combining action with puzzle elements, as you have to find clues to various crimes and e-mail them to your lab assistant. For such a tawdry looking man, you have a lot of sophisticated equipment about your person.
So, what doesn't work? Well, how limited Ethan is gets a bit frustrating: he can't jump or really move around much, which could be attributed to his drunken state, but that doesn't really fly to me, and reeks of linear game development. Also the game is incredibly short and the ending will probably leave you quite frustrated, with the hope that a third game comes along soon to continue the story. However, it is a visually impressive game that's got fun combat, and even if the plot isn't up to much, the gameplay is a refinement of the first game and well worth playing!
Players will assume the identity of Ethan Thomas, former Serial Crimes Unit investigator, who has been called back to duty to track down his missing partner. The disturbing events from Ethan's past have left him a broken man ? a desperate burnout drifting aimlessly through society in an inexplicable decline. Fighting inner demons throughout his one-man investigation into a sinister conspiracy, Ethan will need to use anything and everything in the environment to survive as he unravels the mysteries shrouding the city in darkness.
