    It's pretty irritating to play a sequel and face so many of the issues of the original, but Bloodshot's ability to take you into the terrifying world Monolith has crafted is astonishing.

    Despite its shortcomings, Condemned 2: Bloodshot is a good game by all accounts.
  3. As a survival horror game, Condemned 2 is too short on horror. As an FPS game, it’s too short on strategy and level design. At best, it’s a brawler with some horror and FPS elements.
  4. As it is, Condemned II is a scary, clichéd, sometimes engrossing videogame, with good relay value, personality and, darkness permitting, an enjoyable single-player mode.
  5. In truth, you’ll probably end up being more shocked by the gore and brutality you see on screen this time round instead of jumping from your seat at the shock of one of the game’s set pieces.

    Hohohohoooooooo :D Maaaaaaaaaaannn ... insane, insane, insane, INSANE MOTHERF%"#!!"KER!!! This was my FIRST game for my PS3... neeeeeeeeverHohohohoooooooo :D Maaaaaaaaaaannn ... insane, insane, insane, INSANE MOTHERF%"#!!"KER!!! This was my FIRST game for my PS3... neeeeeeeever have I been so much surprised.... NEVER! The first time I tried it, I put the CD in, launched the game, started the campaign... there... everything started. You start by meeting this homeless man this homeless man, and then you notice that the city has been evacuated. Only criminals have stayed... and like Will Smiths movie "I'm a legend" these people in this city have been affected by somekind of a virues, which makes them go insane. The graphics ... ARE... INSANE... FECKING REALISTICK!!! OKEY... That's why this game is crazy and realistic! It's not just a horror movie or game or something like that... it's real :D I swear.. Everytime a crazy man was running after me, I was running away like a **** You can hear him shout after you, his footsteps coming closer to you... he's going to **** you up like no one every ****ed you up before.. OK! :D I really mean it maaaaan. It feels like you are in the game every single second... I don't know how they did it, but they somehow found out how to put you in the game and make your brain and motions connected with the moments in the game. They know when to make you scared and how to scare you. They developed the game they wanted to develope and if I saw Condemned 3 been advertised somewhere, I know which game I should have on my number 1 list on my whishlist. This is not Uncharted but it really has the same quality... but I have never played anything which can be so much connected with my emotions. The graphics are insane and I counld not believe it right after playing on the PS2 generation for a while, then this came out. Insane graphics, bunch of horror content(don't let kids play this game!), many hours of gameplay, multiplayer supported, realistic combat and very brutal, Uncharted level story in my opinion... FANTASTIC... this is art, this is fun, this is entertainment. You have to try out this game before you die one day... for real. Full Review »

    Aside from the story, the game is great. Mostly because of atmosphere and amazing melee combat.

    Very strange game, I'm all for horror. Love the genre but this is not horror, the start is more like something out of a mental asylum. Very strange game, I'm all for horror. Love the genre but this is not horror, the start is more like something out of a mental asylum. Very weird, so weird to the point you think it's a bit stupid. The game actually made me want to stop playing it. I did persevere and have finished the game. Overall the story gets better and the evidence gathering sections are pretty interesting. The fighting controls are average and using a gun is pointless, i found it easier to throw my guns at people to stun them and then close in to finish them in close combat. Overall this is not a spoiler, only a note to highlight how pathetic the early gun fights are, it only gets realistic when you get to semi automatics. Overall about 10-15 hours of gameplay which is ok but was not super impressed with the game. Having played FEAR on PC recently maybe I'm expecting too much but FEAR was a lot better, far more engrossing story. Again this is not so much horror as it is weird sci-fi on acid. Full Review »
