Editors' Note: This demo is intended for adult audiences only.

Developed by award-winning Monolith Productions, Condemned: Criminal Origins allows players to experience a heightened level of psychological tension as they use their instincts, forensic tools, and melee combat to track serial killers and bring them to justice. Gamers play as Agent Thomas, an investigator in the FBI's Serial Crimes Unit (SCU), whose pursuit of relentless serial killers leads him through urban environments filled with sociopaths lurking on the periphery of humanity. Weapons and ammunition are scarce, leaving the player vulnerable to a gallery of mentally deranged criminals. Careful detective work and precision reflexes are a player s primary means of survival.

This demo gives you the chance to try out one level as you chase down a murder suspect.

    "Great Game!"

    November 07, 2009   |   By h33ts33k3r

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    The game is scary as hell and one of the best games I've ever played.

    Cons

    The download took way too long. In the downloads window it said 6 hours, 17 minutes! WTH?!?!?

    Summary

    It was an awesome game, but a faster download speed would have been nice.

    "Best Case of a worse case Scenario."

    July 20, 2007   |   By acdchris

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Yes, Criminal Origins is scary...Not Silent Hill 2 or Resident Evil 4 scary..Of course...

    Many of the enemy bots are brutal. They pop out of nowhere and will send you to hades with a small pipe. There are seriously times in the game where you run into a dead ended room and are still scared of some druggie busting out of the ceiling or something...

    Another thing, is the use of weapons. The game makes it real clear that you only have a few shots and that if you screw up a shot, you'll quickly find yourself surrounded by 'roidin criminals. To compensate for this, the game allows you to pick anything up and use it as a weapon. But this does come with a price, as almost everything makes a sound which usually doesn't go hand-in-hand with being sneaky.

    There is a brief glimpse into crime-scene-investiagation, and I do mean brief... The cutscenes are sudden and great, and there is a genuine sense of terror.

    Cons

    The only con, is that this isn't as scary as it could be.... I mean....If you really want a good horror-survival game, right here-right now, go check out the Silent Hill series or Clive Barker's Undying...This game is a good shooter that just lacks better 'scare tactics.'

    "Creepy....and short"

    August 01, 2006   |   By Princess_Buttercup

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Very unsettling...walking down a hallway when you hear scuttling ahead is very chilling...

    Definitely not a shooter...you start with a gun, but it's unlikely you'll unload more than six rounds, since that's what they give you...you can find another pistol later on in a corner with 5 more shots, but that's at the very end...This adds a cool, original feel to the game, rather than just another shooting gallery...Note: I am a huge shooter fan and I still liked this...

    Good graphics: I have a cheapass graphics card, and it still looked nice, even though I didn't bother fiddling with the settings

    Hobos! Hobos are always funny, especially when you say "Police! Come out or I'll use force!" and he says "#@$& you!" and you shoot him in the leg and he says "agh! &#$*#$@er!" and then you kill him.

    Cons

    First part is kind of boring...unless you're a huge fan of CSI or something, you'll be wishing it was over so you could start killing hobos

    Hobos...Killing them with rusty planks is fun...but it doesn't make sense: if they're in the same building as the murder was commited in, don't that make them suspects? And if they're not the killer, why are they trying to kill you? I read some reviews and aparently playing the full game doesn't clear that up.

    Short. For the file size, it's a short demo. Maybe 10 enemies. Still, it makes sense where it ends...

    My personal pet peeve is @$$holes who give a game a low score for any of these 3 reasons:

    1. Took forever to download.

    Well, that ain't the game's fault. Get a better internet connection, or do something else.

    2. The demo didn't work

    This is the most defensible one, but if you haven't played a game, how are you gonna rate it??

    3. I couldn't run the game/ Didn't work well on my computer

    Lets rephrase this one: "My [Mom's] computer sucks, and she won't buy me a new one as long as I'm living in the basement, so I'm gonna take it out on the computer. Because next-gen games should work on a computer with integrated 32MB graphics and 128MB graphics. I even have a blazing 1GHz processer." Honestly people, a game like Half-life 2, Doom 3, or Condemned was not intended to run on 5 year old hardware. So just shut up, stop whining, and get a new computer.
