4 images of Condemned 2

Sega releases four new images of Condemned 2: Bloodshot. It doesn't look much better than the first one, but if it's as good, we should survive.

it needs shadows and light, its all very lifeless at the momment, i mean, if there not going to bother, why show anything at all ?

maybe people complained the first was too dark, but now they've gone to the oposite end of the scale and its very bright, losing all tention it once had.

the game really aint looking amazing tbh. it'll probably be good, but with some of the other game coming soon its hard to be completely blown away by THIS.

not liking the wierd monster thing in the first shot tho, kinda puts me off the game a little.

The first games amazing ability to shock us all when we least expected, not only with it`s horrors, but also with it`s sheer greatness at being a launch game that`s actually `good` for a change, will definately make me get this game no matter what the monsters look like. Just remember that polish is yet to be added.

As Manny said though, the lighting FX and self shadowing etc do need to be turned on and it seems stupid to allow people to look at shots with none of the forementioned being applied. Yes the first game was dark, but the shadows won`t derive from it`s true dark nature, they just add depth.

Without any `dark` being applied, can you really say that the first game would`ve been as enjoyable as it was?.....I can`t!. The shadowing/dark, creepy-eerieness was what made it great and games of this style require that to become proficient in it`s field.

Would Alien vs Predator 2, or Doom 3 have been as scary without shadows?........erm no lol. Bring on the next set of screens and we`ll see, but for now, the future just seems to be getting better IMO :0)

I played the first condemned for the first time a couple of days ago and it sucked ass. It was just dark, totally not scary and incredibly boring gameplay. Just loaf about in the dark looking for dead birds and pounding the skull of a hobo every once in a while (it might be an unfair call since i only played like the first level and half of the second).

Before i tried part 1 i thought this might be cool, particularly since i heard that the first one was good. But now? I don't know.

The first game had awesome sound. When I got a 5.1 sound system after I first played Condemned I actually became afraid to put the disk in anymore.

The enemies also felt really smart in that one. The way they'd hide around corner and then jump you.

The first one was very marmite

Go back and look at screens of the first, they looked dreadful (in all the wrong ways) but the game, in motion, looked fantastic and still does.

So much is sound, so much is animation, so much is the visceral feel of clobbering and being clobbered. Weapons are really the only reason to be worried I reckon, I hope they don't turn it into a shooter.

Apart from that, it's the sequel to what's still the only truly "next gen" feeling game I've played on the high end systems so far, so suffice to say it has a pretty solid foundation to stand on.

Does anybody know if Monolith is still developing this or has it been completely taken over by Sega?
Commented on 2007-10-11 00:47:44
Ahhhh man, the storyline was lame as hell and they are sticking with it??
Commented on 2007-10-11 01:27:42
Sega didnt buy Monolith the-US-company theyre just a publisher, and Nintendo bought Monolith Soft the-whocares-Japanese-mobile-game-developer. So no, Nintendo isnt planning on manly games for the hard-core crowd in the future either.

Though, two years into the next gen and this is the best in engine tech Monolith has to offer? Close shop.

If it uses the same engine as Project Origin then it's going to look freaking amazing

    Tiz Judgement wasn't all bad though. Overrun is better than Horde and I wished if there was one thing the Coalition kept from Judgement, it was that. Instead of treating it like a horrid bastard child. (42 minutes ago)

    Tiz @Sdarts: Judgement changed too much. Stim grenades that gave you double life in gun fights wat? Ink downed you in a second? Verticality in Gears maps? Jumping off rooftops? (45 minutes ago)
