Top 5 Disappointments On PS3

Sam Smith: ''With the recent travesty known as Aliens: Colonial Marines making us pine for what could have been, Play have decided to take a look back at five games that could have been so much more. There’s no real order to these, all of them were pretty rubbish.''

Haha, too funny that Colonial Marines made the list. And I remember Lair. I wanted to love that game. I bought it after they patched the controls. Despite that it was still sooo bad. It had gorgeous cut scenes though.

I came in here expecting to see disappointing ps3 exclusives Not 90% multiplat games??!
article tricked me!

Blackdeath_6631259d ago

same, i guess some one want to poke at sony amidst all the hype and rumours of next gen. the list is good though they were pertty disappointing game. duke nukem and alien colonial marines suffered the same problem in development for ages and passed between different developers

MikeMyers1259d ago

You're right, those games were also a disappointment on other systems. Flamebait article.

Lair is still one of my favorite games this generation, it was technically impressive and it was fun. I played it with the sixaxis and it played great, only people who didnt give it a try for real say otherwise. Not saying it was perfect but there is still no other games like it.

I'd had replaced something with Haze personally.

It wasn't as bad as some listed here but it wasn't quite what it should and could had been either--and like Lair was an actual exclusive. I can honestly say the only thing I really remember about Haze was it had something to do with Nectar and bee color motifs... and I had forgotten about it almost completely until reading this.

Irishguy951259d ago

Yeah same, Disappointing and bad aren't the same thing. Haze had quite the hype back in the day

I came into here expecting Haze to be on. I had some 'fun' with that game,though it was mainly the experience rather than the game.

DigitalRaptor1259d ago

Haze was disappointing, but like you said, it wasn't a bad game. I think the stereotypical soldier aspect was overlooked as lazy and unoriginal, when in fact it was the Nectar drug making them act that way so they didn't fear going into battle.

It was a pretty good game tbh, but I would've taken a new TimeSplitters game over it any day.

Haze was poor.

I remember seeing the start of the second level (?) which I think had you driving a buggy around this dirt coloured landscape, and the environments looked like a joke. This was compared to the first level in the jungle, which actually looked pretty good.

Anyway, the online co-op was quite good fun.

Edit - found it!

Now that the PS4 controller has way way improved motion controls, its probable that we could see a better Lair coming out for it.

i think Lair is worth trying. people say it sucks before they tried it out. i liked the sixaxis implementation it works quite well and graphics weren't bad at all.

and how stupid is it to say PS3 disappointment where only one of the games if exclusive ?

RevXM1259d ago (Edited 1259d ago )

Ive never played Lair myself, but I always wanted to.
Well until all the harsh reviews came in atleast saying the controls didnt work...

WHAT IF... LAIR controls worked perfectly?
What then?
