Condemned: Criminal Origins goes from a standard, C.S.I.-style detective story to a science-fiction, horror thriller in about what-the-hell-just-happened flat. One second you’re just a regular FBI agent on the hunt for a serial killer, the next you’re a suspect in a murder investigation and you’ve got some weird experimental “instinct powers”? It doesn’t make much sense, but it does play well, and the story is rather engrossing. Also, as an Xbox 360 launch title, this was a good indication of where the system was headed in terms of power and graphics. Put this on your list of must-play games.

Verdict: Rent It
