Silent Hill is a survival horror game. The description is apt: you spend the whole time surviving unspeakable horror. Dark, dank and dangerous, Silent Hill grabs you by the scruff of the neck, shakes you till you throw up, then headbutts you right between the eyes.
Monolith Productions' Condemned was inspired by eat-em-up flick The Silence of the Lambs and disturbing murder mystery Se7en. Fans of either of those films will know, then, that Condemned isn't a cuddly romcom of a video game. No siree.
