GBU for Condemned: Criminal Orgins

My name is Atomic Zombie.

Im pretty sure im a cautionary tale to all gamers. I am the stereotypical middle aged gamer with a wife and a kid. I barely have time to play the games I have, so keeping up with my unmarried, and unhindered friends has killed my gamer street cred. I am about 2 – 3 years behind on current games and subsequent news, however I can change a diaper on a screaming child faster than Mr Magoo in a kydex speedo. Im mildly interested in Zombie movies and the horror genre, and attest that zombies cannot run jump or snarl as it were. Ive publicly attested that George Romero is in fact my real father, the resulting DNA test was negative but I still have hope. I enjoy First person shooters, REAL zombie games, anything militaristic, puzzle games , and long walks on the beach. I almost added RPG games but after a serious bout of WOW addiction and quitting cold turkey I seriously cannot list them, in fact I almost didnt get fallout 3 because of the fact it was an rpg. And me not playing a fallout game is well like the sun not coming up.
well thats pretty much me wrapped up in a nice little package. if you have questions about my personal life or my likes or dislikes ask my wife she knows better than I do.

So here’s my first review, Condemned CO was the first game I ever picked up for my 360. Ill get right to it than yes?

Good: This game had AMAZIING graphics and movie like sequences. With the lights off and the HD going this game looked amazing. The gameplay and controlls were simple but effective and the fighting was realistic. Picking up pipes and bats because bullets would run out three rooms after you picked up the guns. AWESOME! It has lots of replay value, this thing gets replayed every three to four months. The fighting and skull bashing is just way to much fun not to play it.

Bad: The story was actually bad. It was linear with a few jumps back and forth and overall made sense but it was just sinfully dumbed down. The game art looked alot like a redone Max Payne early levels. Although gladly it was just a darkened gameworld not a wannabe film noir representation of a crime novella.

Ugly: Really the only truely ugly thing about this game was the C.S.I. stuff. i felt some of it was thrown in as an afterthought. Although it did give the storyline a little more running room it didnt give the game any more playability.
