Condemned

Sega’s Monolith-developed title has all the makings of an Xbox 360 sleeper hit. This serial killer thriller combines some superbly-worked CSI-style detection with some fiendishly tense FPS action. The demo section had you using UV lamps, lasers and scanners to investigate a grisly tableaux set up by the psychotic ‘matchmaker,’ then chasing bloodthirsty “addicts” through the floors of a dilapidated building.



The environments are so detailed that you can practically smell the decay, and there’s a real sense of fear. Imagine a cross between Half-Life 2, Silent Hill and Se7en, and you’re probably on the right track. Great stuff.
