Now this was an interesting idea: a shooter game where you’re largely safe, but trying to get human survivors to safety. “City Condemned” has you shooting from a rooftop, sniping at zombies and bats who threaten the human survivors. It makes for an interesting challenge.
There are some things this game has that I haven’t seen in other games, such as zombies that will enter buildings and you’ll have to wait for them to come out the other side (unless you luck out and get a clear shot through a window). You have to deal with your breathing while using the sniper scope, so there’s a nod to authenticity here. You’re not home free up on your rooftop paradise, though, as the aforementioned bats will give you a hard time every now and then. Not quite as scary as the kryll in Gears of War, but a threat nonetheless. Definitely worth an 80 Microsoft Point download for sniping fans.
Here’s what the developer (Golconda) has to say about the game:
“Free the Condemned City from rotten zombies and loathsome bats. Featuring three amazing modes Deliverance, Mission and Weekend modes. Experience the ultimate sniping action and earn prestige points, awards and upgraded weapons.”
