Condemned 2 scares with screens

Condemned 2 scares with screens

We meet again Condemned 2: Bloodshot, and I see you've been adding some awful monsters to your bestiary! I rarely saw things like that! At least the designers are imaginative. And dark. And gross. The european release date is set for the beginning of 2008 on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. The images are taken from the PS3 build.

Well, looking quite good, especially screen 4 looks cool.
"Is there a doctor around??"

Nice images , I'll buy this game! I played the first one and enjoyed a lot. The only thing that I would change in the game is it's final , I didn't like it! That stupid "ghost" almost ruined the game in my opinion.

Bouhahahaha 4th screen instantly became my desktop wallpaper.

Loved the first Condemned. Really looking forward to this one.

I hope they mix up the formula this time. I rented the original and from what I recall you just run through dilapidated buildings hitting weird people over the head with a pipe, over and over and over...

And with shotguns, stunguns, super-stunguns, revolvers, pistols, machine guns, lead pipes, metal bars, axes, 2x4's, crowbars, planks endless list.

It's a survival horror.. I wouldn't expect a bigger weapon arsenal than this.

A revolver IS a pistol, a lead pipe technically is a metal bar, and a 2x4 is technically a plank :P

and it was sweet as hell, first time a game has been anything close to scary since silent hill 2.

game will no doubt be just as good as the first if not better but the graphics are very inconsistent, some textures look good like the characters and faces plus some of the environmental textures, but then you get textures like the table in shot 3 which looks like it was ripped out of a pre ps2 era PC game. very strange.

Is this game about homeless veterans? I'm pretty sure I've seen all those guys somewhere.

Pretty cool looking. And I was surprised to hear that these were from the PS3 build. A developer disclosing screenshots from the PS3 build before the game is released? Other than DMC 4 and Burnout, which used PS3 as the lead platform, this is generally unheard of. Hell, CoD 4 PS3 screens were never released as direct feed shots.

Yea the original had the same problem. Some areas or objects would look incredible (for a launch title) but then other things in the same scene would bring it way down. Better use of shaders and higher res textures would help. We know both the 360 and PS3 can handle it.

The original was the sleeper hit from the 360 launch. I have to say that I don't like what I've seen so far from this sequel though. So many FPS games out these days and this just doesn't stand out from the crowd.

Yeah, but I don't really think the FEAR engine can really go that far.

This ones is looking real good, now i hope they it's better than the first, even though the first one was good enough...
Commented on 2007-12-12 01:01:45
none of them look scary now, but i can imagine its going to very scary seeing these guys come out from behind you in the dark.

This will be interesting

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the arcade shadow dancer is also nice, built on the same gameplay foundations as arcade shinobi, but a bit weaker level design. i also love rolling thunder 1&2, which are also very similar (6 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth i played a bit of shinobi and kunoichi on ps2, but they are really just shinobi in name. (6 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth game gear shinobi is more like the arcade version than the mega drive ones. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'd love some kind of real Sega revival. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I like a bunch of Shinobi games. Even the Game Gear had great Shinobi games. Also the PS2 Shinobi was too quickly forgotten. (6 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth my fav Sega game is Shinobi (original arcade). I still play it now and then. I think they have other, more recognizable and iconic characters/brands, but for me those games don't hold up as well today (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Wasn't really bashing it anyway. I love a lot of Sega stuff, and I think Shenmue is okay. Maybe a bit overrated is all. (6 Hours ago)
