Condemned is a port of an Xbox 360 title, and you can read my full original review here.

The only differences to note are that the mouse and keyboard controls are completely adequate, but a little piece of that visceral quality I ramble on about is lost without the rumble function of the Xbox 360 controller. Also, for some odd reason, the PC version is locked into widescreen resolutions, so anyone with a traditional monitor will see black bars slicing off the top and bottom of their screen. Condemned is a horror game, and requires a sizable screen for full immersiveness. A small computer monitor, especially if squished by widescreen ratio, fails to deliver the full effect.
