Games that looked good on paper

In all honesty, some games would be better off left on the whiteboard at the design meeting. Whether they're too ambitious, too expensive or simply too good to be true, gamers are frequently led to imagine great things only to have our expectations dashed when the game finally arrives. How could these games be so good on paper yet underwhelm so spectacularly? (Armored Core 4, Armored Core: For Answer, Def Jam: Icon, Dynasty Warriors 5, Dynasty Warriors 5 Empires, Dynasty Warriors 5 Special, Dynasty Warriors 6, Dynasty Warriors 6 Empires, Dynasty Warriors: Gundam, Dynasty Warriors: GUNDAM 2, Just Cause, Kane & Lynch: Dead Men, Lair, Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe, PC, PS3, Red Steel, Wii, Xbox 360)

why is it the first game that comes to mind is FARCRY 2?
its not even a bad game but thats what i thought automatically.

i think it was because of the e3 gaming media attention. i think those fckers gassed me up.

for those that didnt play farcry 2 its a good game I just dont think its worth $60 dollars unless youre committed to planned attacks that dont work most of the time. there is no multiplayer. well there is mutlitplayer but youre not gonna want to play it.

given enough time farcry 2 could be 1 of your favortie games. play with the settings on your tv and it can look really good.
