I've only just started it, but it has unbelievable atmosphere.
God, I love this game.
"HandsomeDead said:Yep. Wasn't at all scary from the end of the first chapter. Became to obvious when and where things were going to pop up."This game is the only game I have ever found to be frightening. .Have you ever played Dead Space ?"
I really enjoyed the first one like crazy. Great atmosphere all around. The sound design is what made it amazing, though. Every little step, creak, snap...man, just intense!!! Unfortunately, I don't think I can play the second one. Without Greg doing the voice for Ethan...as well as knowing the whole twist, which is just STUPID...I just don't think that I can actually force myself into playing through it. I'm sure it's pretty decent and all...but seriously, how the FUCK are you going to make Ethan look like Grizzly goddamned Adams?! lol
You have to give Monolith credit. They are masters of creating a creepy atmosphere that keeps you on the edge of your seat. While I have enjoyed playing through Condemned you can tell it was their first major foray into this type of game. While the atmosphere is definitely there and the combat is innovative the story is almost non-existent. While I can understand the argument that you're going it alone and have no one to talk to I like having a little more backstory and motivation for my actions. Hopefully Condemned 2 provides some of that.
I won't say this is one of the best games of all time but for a 360 launch title they really had something going here.
