This week was a busy one at work and at home so there wasn’t as much time for gaming as I would have liked. However I did manage to slip in 30 minutes of Condemned: Criminal Origins each lunchtime (one of the benefits of living 5 minutes from the office). The game play is such that I could actually cover a decent chunk of the game in short bursts.
If there was one word I could use to decribe this game, it would be creepy. The game runs as a meld of Doom, CSI and Max Payne. You spend much of your time working through dark tunnels and buildings fighting off some very freaky strung out characters. Several times while playing, I have let out a vicious scream when I turned around to find a crackhead with a shovel about to clobber me. Great stuff!
