Condemned 2 announced

Condemned 2 announced

Sega also announced the released during Q1 2008 of Condemned 2: Bloodshot, on both Xbox 360 and PS3. No screenshots yet, but at least we get this character image of Ethan Thomas slightly less presentable than at the beginning of the previous game.

YES BRING IT ON!

Maybe we'll play as transformed to demon ethan :o

Yes, that is great news. I absolutely loved the first one, except the last level (too much resident evil alike).

Great atmosphere, great execution for a launch title, the news of the sequels makes me want to play through the game once again :P

The first game was SO good, I played it till the end. Though it had some bugs. I remember this one, there was some big empty swimmingpool in a school (that school level was the best), when you jumped in it, there appeared some kind of demon, and there was an SMG lying on the ground, but I couldn't grab that smg. I got beaten up like 10 times by the demon, but somehow I managed to win. Can't remember how XD. The final boss is awesome by the way. You have to rip out metal parts of the guy's body, and that done with really cool looking cinematic attacks :D

Anyways, this is from IGN (in my own words :P):

> The game is going to have multiplayer.
> Because of Thomas' last rather 'strange' adventure, he has a demon or something in his body. So sometimes you'll get blackouts and you must fight that demon to contain yourself. [if you've played the first game till the end, and if you saw the ending movie of Thomas in front of the mirror, you know what demon it is. Man that moment scared the hell out of me XD]
> The fighting system will improve a lot, you'll still use objects from the environment to kill your enemies.
> You'll get new forensic tools so that you can solve a murder in different ways (meaning, replaying the game for more gamerscore *sigh* :P)

i actually think that the first 1 was the best launch title for any console....ever!

For PS3? Boooo. And Nintendo just bought Monolith, what the heck are they doing games for the competition for.

Otherwise, played through Condemned1 and liked it. It would still be one of the best looking FPS on the 360 if it werent for the judder and slowdowns.
Commented on 2007-05-11 16:33:44
The best game no one played.

And totally agree, best launch game ever.

Wrong Monolith. There is a Japanese one that made like Xenosaga or something and then there is the good one (zing!) that made NOLF2, F.E.A.R. and Condemned.

Anyway, I'm so psyched about this, it's crazy. Condemned was easily my favorite 360 launch game.

heheh he looks like Sam Fisher now.
Commented on 2007-05-11 18:06:43
Nice. PS3 could use a survival horror.

im gonna come out and say that ISNT an image of ethan thomas. for one it looks NOTHING like him. and why would he be like that. im gonna say its just enemy art, why would someone like that be on the police force with a ton of forensic tools solving murders? he looks like a crack head, not an officer of the law.

Pay attention, man! His index finger is off, of course it's him. That's the whole point of the artwork, to get us all worked up going "OMG he's a bum! Why's he a bum!?" and then you'll find out eventually when you buy their product. :)

That really thomas by the way? Hm, I guess; he has his FBI weapon strap.
