Might be a regional thing. I can still buy it. I grabbed it on sale for 5USD. Just finished them both. Butchers Bay is still the superior game and now looks even better. Athena was way to much run and gun which took away so much of what made the first so great.

I am replaying it. Its still very atmospheric and great looking experience full of detail and filled with epic music. I am playing Remake od BB right now. Damn!!! And I am playing it like 10th time (first for remake)

I completely forgot about this game. I have it on Direct2drive, so I am downloading it now. I remember hitting a bug long time ago, where when I tried to enter this door to the next level the game would crash everytime, so I tried to find a solution but never found any. Haven't played the game since then, never finished it. Hopefully the bug won't be there again.

btw. Other than graphics which have changed from 2004 in 2009 bb remake, I think fighting system and music have also changed a little bit. Also character models are different, but better.

I WANT DARKNESS on PC!

Belive me. Condemned 2 isnt worth it. Its crap compared to first one.

but the Darknes is just incredible! But I doubt we will see a port Thats becouse Starbreeze lost their main engine developer and know nobody knows how to operate with their beutifull engine



btw. Ive just finished Buther Bay remake and its INCREDIBLE! ive finished original 2004 game like 10 times but this was a first time for remake. One of best experiences ever. Peroid. Surely can be put next to Half-life 2 and the Darkness in a tie.

Music and graphics are beutifull but I have a thing for Starbreeze engine which is very underrated.

One thing I like now about Butchers Bay is you can finish it in a night. I wasn't happy it was so short to begin with, but now if I want a night off with a different game I can just load it up and finish before bed time.

Ive never could finish butcher bay in less than 8-10 hours. NEVER. people say they finished it in 5 hours, but I just cant rush it. I watch everything, listen to dialogs, search for packs and just explore the fantasticly drawn future prison!!!
