10 Video Game Boss Battles That Left Us Disappointed

WC writes: There are few moments in videogames that manage to either underwhelm so severely as to undercut the collective experience of playing the game from start to finish, or be so odds with the journey that the destination feels so out of place, but it does happen, and more than we’d like. Of course, it’s all subjective. In recent conversation with a friend, he cited one of his favourite final boss battles as one of my worst (number 4 on this list). There will be many of you who read this and entirely disagree with my choices, waving your hands up in protest at some choices that made it on here whilst decrying ones that didn’t. (Batman: Arkham Asylum, Final Fantasy IX, Mass Effect 3, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Mortal Kombat, PC, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

I must disagree with the 3, at least.

I liked punching the crap out of Liquid...

As for ME3...I would have loved to have faced Harbinger. Bioware denied us that opportunity. ¬_¬

Arkham Asylum - All the boss battles. Especially the lizard guy should have been epic but they all stunk.

Borderlands - The Destroyer fight itself was OK I guess, but the loot you get from it and the visuals for the vault were so underwhelming that it made the fight seem crappier than it actually was. It also made the entire search for the vault kind of overrated. Though I guess the current game is doing some good recon to make it not seem as worthless (I will be able to say for sure when I get to the end of two).

ME2 - The human reaper fight stunk but the entire last mission was awesome.

ME3 - recon that actually breaks the series...just horrible... but not really a "boss battle" since you pretty much do with the boss tells you. And the last mission leading up to it wasnt even good like ME2 either.

Fable2 - SPOILER you kill my dog and I dont get to kick your arse? And the dog doesnt even get to be in the Statue at the end. The statue should be me and my dog. Scrw that I am letting everyone else die.

AC2- I honestly dont even remember this fight so I guess it wasnt horrible but certainly wasnt good.

How is the Starchild a boss in any way? Yeah, he's pretty lame, but he doesn't belong on this list.

Metal Gear Solid 4 was epic. Loved the final fight between Liquid Ocelot and Snake!

It seems more like, "10 Video Game Boss Battles the Author is Disappointed In". It's great to have an opinion though I will say don't talk as if we'll agree. It would have to compose of a list of well known games that majority of people have played and can agree upon that the last boss battles were terrible. If anything I would like to see this authors list of his top ten boss battles.

Definitely disagree with the author on Liquid Ocelot and Malus (calls it The Sorcerer in the article) boss battles.
