Rated 4 out of 5 by from Scary For a game that's about ten years old, this game is really scary and the creepy atmosphere that it contains is enough to make you feel uncomfortable as you dwell within the darkness with your little flashlight as someone or something is lurking in the darkness, waiting the perfect time to strike. I've already reached the final level of the game but given by everything this game contains, it's an experience to have but not for those who are faint of heart. There are two problems I have with the game... One: You don't get keep whatever weapon you had when you move onto the next level. Two: The Save data is crazy as heck You have to select the file of your current because if you hit 'continue', you'll find yourself being back at certain level that you've already completed. That may not be a big deal to you but it's a pain to select the file in order to continue with all honesty. Overall, the game is a great experience and it's better if you play the game in the dark. This is also a psychological horror game as well because you will see things that aren't really there and it's enough to really mess with your mind, both the character (Ethan Thomas) and you as the player. There are guns in the game but ammo is very scarce, so you have to use bullets wisely. My favorite weapon is the fire because the amount of damage it can do to your enemies and it's best to have it when you have break down doors to get by. The graphics maybe dated but since this game was released in 2005, it's excusable but graphics shouldn't really matter because the gameplay is where it's all at and it's great. You have to time your blocking at the right moment or you will take damage and I have a hard time with it but as mentioned, you have to time it right. If you want a game that will really have you on edge, Condemned: Criminal Origins is the one of those games that will do the trick. I will warn you, it's really scary and you'll find yourself sleeping with the lights on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I hate mannequins now So let's set things in place now, if you're looking for a legitimately scary game, your search ends here. This is probably one of the scariest games I've ever played, if not the scariest. Every horror aspect of this game is perfect. The environments: Dark, diverse areas, everything from abandoned shopping malls to erie apartment buildings. The enemies: they aren't too variant, but you got your normal crack head lurkers, big bad meat heads, Nemesis look a likes, and so on. The sound: it is pretty much perfect, sounds from moving around to the different things you step on, glass, paper, wooden planks, metal flooring, the whole nine yards. The screams of enemies, their movements, both quick and stealthy. One of the most important aspects: gameplay. It is a bit slow but ultimately it adds to the horror experience, you can chase an enemy but you can't run away from it. A true feeling of unease, fear, and true hopelessness. The story is okay, it's not totally grabbing but it's present enough to keep the game going and keeps the players attention. If you want a truly scary, but playable and enjoyable game, then this is a game for you.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from What a Disappointment!!!!! First off I don't even understand how the games got such a good rating. Controls are sad to say the least the character walks slower than any other game I've ever played and his running is as fast as walking in a most games, and runs out in 7 seconds and take a while to recharge, he can only hold 1 weapon at a time (LAME) and his health is so sad he can be killed in only 3 hits (pathetic). Graphics are the quality of the original x box and the game its self was so boring I couldn't even continue to play after a 1/3 way through it (and I usually pride myself on being the type who finishes all games completely). Take some advice and don't bother this game isn't even worth buying at used price it's a pathetic excuse for a video game smh.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Aged Quite Well Despite being about six years old, Criminal Origins is a very good, effective horror game. It's not all about action as the most recent horror games have been and it's not quite as psychological as older games were. The controls are slow but I feel it adds to the atmosphere of the game. The story dragged a bit and the voice acting and characters could have been better. Weapons were decent with a few firearms and an abundance of melee objects. Difficulty wasn't a problem as there were health kits every few rooms, but there were some annoying sections where death was easy. Seeing as how it's not quite a balance between gore and psych, there are parts of the game that try way too hard to be scary. Especially one section towards the end. And while I do like it, I have no desire to 100% the achievements. Not something I'll replay anytime soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good game, but easy to beat I bought this game and a week later I was finished. Took me another 4 days to get all achievements. Not a lot of sound and too much talking. I did enjoy the game though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing game, but flawed I bought this game to day for free by using a powerup rewards coupon, mainly due to the fact that i have had my 360 for going on 7 years now, and still never played this one. and wow was i surprised. this game if FULL of atmosphere. it makes you feel helpless, and the way the enemies jump out of nowhere reminded me of Dead Space, though Dead Space made me almost s--- in my pants, this one just gave me several near heart attacks. This may be an awesome game, but with the VERY loose and wierdly operating control scheme (having to hold down the left stick while pushing forward to sprint) makes this hard to recommend to people. I would however, because this game is intense. I am not going to knock on the graphics much, because it is from 2005, and they are dated, but with the BGM being full of quiet and eerie sounds, and the fact you can hear Ethan breathing heavy at times, makes up for the flaws in my eyes. A well made game, that everyone has to at least experience to know what they are missing

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I REALLY tried to like this game.... :( I've read some really good reviews for this game.... supposed to be a fun melee-based horror game. I believe I picked it up for maybe 5-8 bucks a few months ago..... I really tried to focus on all of the "fun elements" that I had read about. I will grant that the atmosphere was kinda creepy. Not Dead Space "Gee Willikers I need to change pants" scary, but creepy nonetheless. My major issues were the actual gameplay: I admittedly couldn't make it through the whole game but the chunk of the game that I DID make it through was about 95% melee combat with the 5% gunplay was done with guns with 3 or 4 bullets in the clip and no extra ammo to be found. This would be fine if the melee combat was enjoyable but I found it to be rather bland and basic. Dead Island managed to get the melee-based-combat thing just about perfectly. From what I've heard Skyrim also is supposed to have gotten the formula right, (Haven't played it yet so withhold your torches and pitchforks please, just what I've heard.) however Condemned just didn't do it for me. Apparently a LOT of people like this game and for the $5 that it is currently going for it wouldn't be a huge risk to take in the event that you DIDN'T like it, I just wanted to throw in my two cents since just about every review I read seemed to praise the elements of the game that I found issue with. I'd point you in the direction of Dead Island or Dead Space or even some of the older-school Silent Hill games (haven't played the newer ones) if you want a good, tense atmospheric game. However 5 bucks isn't a huge loss if you do take a flyer on Condemned.
