Gamersyde Diaries: Condemned 2

Gamersyde Diaries: Condemned 2

For our first Gamersyde Diaries of the year, let's talk a bit about Condemned 2: Bloodshot, the sequel of one of the best - and most frightening - launch titles of the Xbox 360. This time, Pipomantis and I had the opportunity to start the game from the beginning, grab cool footage, and it's with great pleasure that we offer you our impressions as well as the fruits of our captures. Definitely worth checking if you ask me :)

The first Condemned was the first Xbox 360 game I ever owned. I probably played through it about 11 times before I got tired of it. What I've seen of Condemned two so far looks incredible, so I'm really looking forward to it.

first game scared me shitless many times.
When i played it i was so stressed behind my tv that it's hard to enjoy but at the same time when a game can make you feel that way , AWESOME !

Junk66, what was that for?

By the way guys, your Gamersyde Diaries are getting better and better by every show you release. It's seriously good enough for tv, like a short game-update between commercials (cm's) you know. :)

Condemned was the first game that I had to have the lights off to play, and the first that I had to turn the back on!

Looking forward to this.

There are 3 great `must own` horror games in my opinion:

1:) AvP 2
2:) DOOM 3
3:) Condemned

and this one looks as though it may surpass the first game which would be a godsend. I love any Resi game or Silen Hill too, but as far as fps`s go, Condemned will always take some beating!!.

It looks sooooo much better in motion too, so forget the screenshots, Monolith need to get more HD video`s out there because it`s such a difficult title to judge based on screenies alone.

Love it ;0)

Aliens vs. Predator is Sci Fi
You also left out RE4 and Fatal Frame
Commented on 2008-02-16 20:35:03
Fatal Frame was pretty good in its day, that one had me paranoid

I'm glad my only concern, close-combat, has been adressed in this sequel. I'm also happy the forensics have been tweaked, I really liked this in the first game, the house at the end of the game where you follow footprints I think with the police light, and then you go in the basement and the mirror...the MIRROR!

I totally don't remember that. Good game.. I didn't love the ending but it's a solid experience.

I'm looking forward to this, being hit by lead pipes and getting chased by angry hobos, ah good times ;)

That house was so fucking awesome.

You know the whole combat system, left trigger controls left punch and right trigger controls right punch of which combos can be formed, reminded me a lot of Breakdown and Riddick for Xbox. Those were both fun and the only other games to contain that type of system in terms of FPS.

Resident Evil 4 was not scary.

Good job with the diary guys, that's why I love this website.

Another brilliant preview Gamersyde. Thanks a lot!

This game looks pretty awesome. I may have to try it. I never played the first because it was just sort under my radar, but this one just looks too sweet to pass up.

I signed up after visiting this site for AEONS just to say thanks for this. Good stuff! What camera are you using, by the way?

Brilliant Stuff guys!

Can't wait to get this when I get home from my trip!

GSD rules every time.

Seriously, if you ever stop making this show, I will find out where you live, and kill you all in your sleep. Or just ask you to make the show again... whatever.

TV shows about gaming suck, why isn't THIS what we get on TV?!

Brilliant episode. Making me look forward to Condemned 2 more.

Keep up the good work!
