Top 5 Worst Franchise Reboots in Gaming

Last week we were treated to the Top 5 Best Franchise Reboots in gaming and whenever you have a “Best” list there is bound to be a “Worst” list. So, here are the Top 5 Worst Franchise Reboots in Gaming. (Alone in the Dark, Bionic Commando, Bomberman: Act Zero, Culture, Industry, Sonic the Hedgehog, The Legend of Spyro : Dawn of the Dragon)

Man some of those games are just down right embarrassing, although I actually enjoyed Bionic Commando; minus the whole plot twist with the arm.

I would agree... Those games were not so great, but the good news is they can add a new one next year. You can probly guess what that is going to be. I will give you a hint it start with a "D".

The only part of Bionic Commando I particularly enjoyed was...
It's Multiplayer, but more people play the Demo online now from what I've heard.

lol, when I heard about that little plot twist, I couldn't help but lol. I still can't fathom the logic behind such a pot device til this day.

It makes more sense in my head to think that they did it to "screw with us".

I actually agree with everyone one of these. However I think Bionic Commando should be #2 not #3. Sonic wasn't that horrible.

arc the lad 5 was pretty damn bad

So much could have been done to make Sonic pretty enjoyable, for example, make a remake of the Sonic from the Sega Genesis similar to what Nintendo is doing with Donkey Kong..would make an excellent addition to the Live Arcade or PlayStation Store. This is just what I think..

Replace #1 with 2. That horse has been dead for YEARS.

OMG The Legend of Spyro Trilogy/Series

gumgum99  +   1809d ago
yeah, I didn't like the reboot either. Same can be said for Crash...>.>
gumgum99  +   1809d ago
Yeah, this list was pretty fair. Sonic 06 was, essentially, an unfinished game. Thankfully, Sega is putting this behind them now with Sonic 4, and Sonic Colors; a 3D Sonic game that's actually pretty good.
NovaXz  +   1809d ago
Yea, it does seem like Sega has started to re-right the ship for Sonic. Sonic 4 was pretty good and Sonic Colors looks great so far.
