Good game can be scary has lots of illegal drug use and alcohol

The game starts of with a cut scene looking like a character is about to drink vodka and gets drunk that’s how the game starts the game is pretty scary but not as a scary as alien isolation, and outlast it’s also kind of gory multiple gore scenes this game I recommend for 18+ because is a lot of adult themes.

Concerns about Condemned 2

Very fun and exciting game. There is some language present but not to much, the M rating is mostly because of the horror and violence. I could possibly recommend it to teens 14+

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (7 ):

While the first game was good, gory entertainment for mature players, this sequel builds upon the concept nicely – but be forewarned this "Mature"-rated game should not be played or viewed by players under 17. With its slick graphics and clever lighting techniques, Condemned 2: Bloodshot delivers plenty of nail-biting moments. After all, it was created by Monolith who brought us the creepy F.E.A.R. series, Aliens Vs. Predator 2 and the Blood 3-D shooters. Add multiple online modes for up to eight players, and the game also deliver chills, thrills, and spills when played together with friends – especially with the lights turned off and your 5.1 surround sound system turned up. Some gripes, however, including some long load times between levels and inconsistent frame rates that translate to some choppy animation when a lot of action takes place onscreen at the same time.
