“Condemned: Criminal Origins (known in Japan as Condemned: Psycho Crime and in Europe and Australia simply as Condemned) is a first-person brawler action video game with psychological horror elements, developed by Monolith Productions and published by Sega. It was launched worldwide in 2005 on the Xbox 360, with a Microsoft Windows version released later in 2006.

Condemned: Criminal Origins places an emphasis on melee combat (as opposed to gunplay) and puzzle solving, including searching for fingerprints and gathering evidence.”
