Most Disappointing games...

Post  mrcrowley24 on Fri Feb 19, 2010 11:47 am

Nothing worse than waiting months for a game that you cant wait to play, only to find out its crap or doesnt live up to expectations (even when its been rated highly!).

Mine are

*The force unleashed - If you look at my avatar you will see Im a big star wars fan so when this game was announced I was really excited. It promised to have next gen graphics and a good storyline. It was a very repetiteve game with lots of back-tracking and the level where you have to bring down a star destroyer was a joke! In the end the graphics didnt blow me away and the ending was a bit anti-climatic.

*Resistence 2 - I loved the first game. It was what the PS3 needed to get it going! So when this game was announced and would come with 64 player online I was very excited. Unfortunately I think the game wasnt that great and that it was rated way too highly (I think IGN gave it a 9.5). To start with I hated how it just drops you into action without any real storyline. I liked the first one how chick gave the voice over throughout the game. I never really gave the multiplayer a go through, but it didnt hook me the way the first resistance multiplayer did. Furthmore, for a game that was in develpment for 2 years from a wealthy company I think the graphics are average at best. Killzone 2 graphics are way better that Resistance 2 and they were released at the same time (granted K2 was in development longer and has a different graphics engine, but I dont care, the graphics just look shit and dont have good detail). The boss fight at the end was fairly easy as well.

*Warhawk Operation Fallen Star - I loved the idea of the jet pack, but after a week no one seemed to play it! I dont know if it was the level (the trees make flying a warhawk a bitch) or that it just seemed a bit gimicky. I dont find this pack that disappointing, I just find it disappointing that more people probably play Destroyed Capital more than they do Tau Crater.

Worthy mentions

Haze (lol, the developers said this was a halo killer! After really shit reviews they closed down the company who made it)
Bionic Commando
Alien Vs Preadator

What are yours?

GTA IV - I bought a ps2 after playing Vice City on a mates console. San Andreas was even better so I was expecting IV to be good...... Neutral

GTA IV was the reason I got a PS3. I think I traded it in after a week. I think having Russians in it was a turn off, lol

Well I look forward to games very rarely, and the only game im looking forward to is RDR, and if that is a flop, I might cry.. haha jk

Well Haze definitely, but the company who made it made Timesplitters, so Im not bad mouthing them.

Every GTA has wowed me, I have liked all of the games I have got, and only traded one or two in.

but Home was also a fail for me.

and HOW THE HELL COULD YOU NOT LIKE GTA4? lol

Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time is probably my most disappointing game. The R&C games are slowly getting very shit. Crack In Time was horrible in every way.

Thats unfortunate, I loved ToD as well. I just downloaded the demo so I will give it a go.

30% of it you played only as Clank. 30% of it you were walking around these tiny moons, an 40% was actual gameplay with Ratchet. Also, all but one of the weapons sucked.
