It’s part CSI episode from hell, part psychotic episode. Condemned 2: Bloodshot played out through the eyes of a special agent losing his mind — he’s chasing personal demons and psychotic killers through burned-out back alleys. When you aren’t grabbing rebar and bashing bozos, you’re using your gear to analyze crime scenes. The thing that probably freaks people out the most is that the game takes place in first-person perspective. So you’re dodging attacks coming right at the screen and landing blows as you mash down on the buttons. Gore factor: Two pints of blood. The visceral up-in-your-grill combat of Condemned is by far the biggest draw. Listen closely for the wicked thump of 2 by 4 on bone when you swing away on psychopaths. If you ever wanted to vent and feel like you're bashing something (or someone) play this game. It's bloody therapy.
