Default Most Disappointing Videogames

Every single thread has been about our favorite games, so why not have a disappointing video games thread?

My personal disappointing games:

Starcraft 2:
SC2 was a huge disappointment for me. I was a modder for warcraft III. I worked on several large projects even making an Avatar game on wcIII (our website for that map recieved 30,000+ views). Seeing how mapmakers in SC2 are so restricted is a huge let down -- low map size limit, low maximum publishing limit, draconian censorship (I'm not talking about curse words, words like "own" and "suicide" are censored), and a bad UI for custom games.

Warhammer Online Age of Reckoning:
I really wanted this game to succeed. Being a huge fan of Eve Online, I was looking for a good PvP MMO in a fantasy setting. After huge hype and fanfare during development, the game withers up and almost dies after a month.

What were some of the most disappointing video games you played?

I don't think I have been disappointed in a game. There has definatly been games I didn't like, but I'm not a huge gamer, I just play them sometimes, so I don't get too excited when most games are released. And since I dont get very excited, my expection level when going into a new game is normally low. But I am excited for Call Of Duty: Black Ops. It'll be the first time I am excited for a game in years.

I think the Matrix Game sucked and Chrome Hounds for 360 was boring.

But most of the time, the games I buy I usually can make it through them and still be happy

Deus Ex 2: Invisible War.

The first Deus Ex - a brilliant masterpiece, my very favorite game of all time.
The sequel - a dumbed down, consolified piece of txìm output not worthy the name of Deus Ex.

The Avatar game was a slight disappointment, like most games based off movies they usually sucked but for some reason I was hoping the game would just be as mind blowing as the movie T.T

Driv3r, I cannot say how much I anticipated it and how much I was disappointed when I read the 3/10 review on Eurogamer. To quote mad dogg from GTA: "damn, how could reflections mess up so bad?? Tanner, you suck!" I mean seriously, I couldn't even get past like 7th mission because of a bug.

The Avatar game - as Elyannia said, it wasn't BAD, but I expected much more

That said, movie games in general are bad. The worst ever was the Eragon game though (terrible movie adaptation anyway though... ), I didn't even bother with the actual game since I was lucky enough to try the demo first.

Jak 3 - still a good game, but lacking the depth (and many of the features) of the previous game. At least they fixed the ridiculous spikes up and down in difficulty though where you would have an easy mission followed by a really hard one, then another easy one - it was by no means bad, but the storyline was a bit of a fail (basically, everything that happens by the end of the second game gets reversed or made worse again somehow) and despite having a few good things, there was certainly some missing depth and elements of the second game.

Myst V: End of Ages

This game was one HUGE let down... I don't know how many people here played other parts of the Myst series, but still...

Anything post-1995 in the Sonic series.

What are all these pathetic attempts to 'revitalise' the series? Throwing random characters all over the place, transforming Sonic into a werehog, all the terrible 3rd person?

Stick to colourful, loud and fast 16 bit 2D.
You were good at that.

This too.

I thought the worlds were still really nice to look at, and I thought that the shift to free movement was a good one, but they just made the puzzles so mind-bendingly dream-logic-inducingly insane that it was practically unplayable past a point.

Yeah, I thought the whole concept of slates was kinda pointless... And, personally, I preferred the pre-rendered hotspot graphics...

Totally agree, thats why I don't pay for it. I download it to see what it look like and I was suppose to buy if I liked it, but it was so disappointing

Heroes of Might and Magic V..... stupidity at a whole new level.
Warhammer 40K Soulstorm. It made me sad, I loved the older games and then that tumor of an expansion showed up and wanted to play with the big kids.
Age of Empires III. At least the ragdoll was fun for a while.
World of Warcraft.
