Most Disappointing Game of 2013

gamrReview's Jake Weston: "Every year has its fair sure of critical darlings and indisputable duds, but the arguably most talked about games are the ones that hurt the most: the disappointing. This award is given out with a heavy heart to the game that isn’t necessarily the worst game of the year, but is the most heartbreaking to play due to the wasted potential." (Aliens: Colonial Marines, Beyond: Two Souls, Fuse, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Soul Sacrifice, Xbox 360)

Alien CM didn't win and Beyond Two Souls did it? Thanks for the joke, gamrreview.com

Beyond Two Souls most definitely, all the hot air hype and grand standing Cage blew on about story driven games and other nonsense and it turned out to be a turkey with over priced Hollywood actors in it.

That is not the future of gaming.

Hold the fricken phone, you had Soul Sacrifice one of the highest rated VITA games, and beyond one of the best story driven games of the year. You picked that over colonial marines a game that you can barely call A GAME come on man

W-why is Soul Sacrifice and Beyond up there? O_O Like seriously?? are there anymore you can think of? Sure Beyond got mixed reviews but Soul Sacrifice? you got some grudge on that game or something?

This is the author's most disappointing games. It doesn't have to be everyone's.

The most disappointing game of 2013 is easily Rome 2: Total War.

Huge budget for a game in a long-running series of games, all of which have been very good... and it's terrible. Apparently, most of the developers had NEVER worked on a game before. Not only was the game so ridden with bugs as to be unplayable, not only was the UI a huge step backwards, but the underlying, core mechanics of the game are fundamentally broken.

Mix that with obscene DLC-whoring and "professional" game reviewers that gave Rome II a free-pass without actually bothering to play the game (apparently they didn't realize that steam stats are PUBLIC) and we have one huge-ass cluster**** of failure.

So many disappointments in 2013,some so massive as to warrant a good bender and others very minor and requiring relatively fewer pints.
I actually can't say that anything I played last year wasn't mildly disappointing.

I'd make Beyond GOTY before even using the term dissapointing in the same sentence as Beyond. Imo, it's one of the top games ever created.
