Here are some of the biggest games that were set to be brilliant but turned out to be disappointing.
I'd add Brink to that list. That and Dead Island are the biggest letdowns of the generation so far for me.
These games are good but were dissapointing Gran Turismo 5 Final Fantasy 13 Halo 3 ODST Bioshock 2 Far Cry 2 etc were some major dissapointments.
Agree but halo odst and ff13 wernt even good. Just dissapointing.
I actually enjoyed Dead Island quite a bit. Especially after the patch. The campaign in Gears of War 2 was very disappointing, because it was hyped to be "emotional" and make the gamer cry and whatnot. Felt like it was written by someone with Aspergers or something. Same with Gears 3, but that game had really good MP which saved it. And add all CODs after MW. Tried the demo for MW3. Holy lord, it's another scripted suckfest.
i agree for brink i had a lot of potential but ran out of something. Most likely time
I agree with Brink and Bioshock 2. Especially Bioshock 2, such a let down especially when coming off part 1 which was exceptional.
If you really think about it, Grand Theft Auto IV was a huge let down.
I think RE:ORC was a huge recent letdown.
I still laugh when people call Dead Island a disappointment because they got themselves excited over a CGI launch trailer. Of course the game wasn't going to look like that, you'd have to be half retarded to think it would. And for the record I had a blast in Dead Island playing with a buddy. Can't wait for the sequel.
I did not think it would look like that graphically or anything. All I expected was that kind of feel, with a good plot and a not so cheesy as fuck usual bullcrap zombie fest of a game, with terribly floaty controls. I know many who feel the same way. Dead Island is the most disappointing game.
Anyone who wants me to trek across a resort just to retrieve her damn teddy bear during the zombie apocalypse doesn't deserve to live. Ugh.
I laugh when people think we thought it was a letdown cause it didn't look like the CGI trailer, hello, the game was broken when it came out and multiplayer was basically unplayable for a while.
Rage Final Fantasy 13 Zelda: Twilight Princess Resident Evil 5 Dark Souls Skyrim Dead Island Dead Space 2 Dragon Age 2 Bioshock 2 Metroid Prime 3 All of those are just huge disappointments for me
Some of these games maybe, but how could you think Dark souls, Dead Space 2 and Bioshock 2 were disappointing? And Skyrim , even though very buggy, was still a far cry from a disappointment. I mean, if you liked Oblivion, you more than likely dug Skyrim. I actually liked the game play of Bioshock 2 better than the first, but liked the story better in the first one.
what I really liked about bioshock 1 and dead space 1 was the story. The sequels were just a huge step down in that department imo. And as for dark souls, I just didn't enjoy it as much as I enjoyed Demons souls. Dark Souls wasn't bad or anything it was just ok. I'm not saying that all of those games were bad but they were just a disappointment, since I had really high expectations.
agreed. I did like the story better on both bioshock and dead space 1 better than the sequels. often in my eyes, its hard to out do the first game in a series. I did thoroughly love both of there sequels though. Not bad games by any means. IMO.
Maybe you should find another hobby
Dead Island was fantastic. This website is not.
For me- Test Drive Unlimited 2 Darksiders 2 Dead Island Dragon Age 2 Fallout: New Vegas Dark Souls Prepare to Die ver And RAGE.
Why did you think Darksiders 2 was a disappointment?
Dragon Age 2 Modern Warfare 3 Haze Lair Red Steel Homefront The list could go on and on, its mostly opinion though, I'm sure some people might really like some of these games.
Why everybody hate dead island. Good graphic and fun gameplay.And very big and detailed
Saints row the third for me. I had way more fun in Saints row 2 than in Saints row the third, I still play saints row 2 every now and then. Steelport is just a really boring city, not even the zombie island makes up for it .
I liked dead island. It was gorgeous and fun; especially with all 4 players. I'm still playing it. Definitely better than what dead rising offered.
I enjoyed Dead Island. I didnt expect much from it and wasnt hyped at all for it. I got it from a contest. If you stop hyping games you will never be disappointed.
