As I mentioned previously, I finally remembered that I owned Condemned 2: Bloodshot. So Friday night around midnight (perfect timing, right) I decided to start my adventure. I strategically kept one of the lights on to hopefully ease some of he tension. With that done I was off to the races.
What I loved most about the first Condemned is so far alive and well in the sequel, the realistic creepy environments! As I was wondering through the first couple of buildings I felt as though this could be a place in my own city that I could actually be walking through. That immersion is a good reason why you keep one light on. Before I could complete the first level I decided to quit for the evening because the tension and my tiredness were not creating a good mix. But my Condemned night did not end there…
I decided to dabble a little with the multi-player and maybe score an achievement or two. The good news is that I met this cool dude from Germany who worked with me to score plenty of cool achievements. The bad news was that I was up till the wee hours of the morning, exhausted, playing this creepy game. It starts to take a toll on the mind.
All in all I had a great time, I am sure the next couple of weeks will see me well on my way through the game. A little bloodshot eyes never hurt anyone.
