It was developed by Monolith studios, the same guys who brought us that other frightening gaming experience: F.E.A.R. Not only that, but the games were developed pretty much simultaneously and were released within a few months of each other. Does that mean that Condemned is a F.E.A.R. clone? Not in the least. Apart from the fact that both games are creepy and will make you scream for your mom at least a couple of times they donít have too much in common. Whereas in F.E.A.R. the horror element only really came from our favorite murderous little girl Alma itís pretty much everywhere in Condemned. And conversely, thereís a lot less fighting in Condemned than in its bigger brother and you wonít be hauling around a weapons arsenal fit for an army. Even though there are definitely resemblances in style, presentation and design, the two arenít much alike.
