Tech2.in.com takes a look at some of the games in 2010 that didn't live up to expectations.
Aliens versus Predators. Not entirely dissapointing, but the game didnt utilize the franchise potential. Aliens, Predators and Marines, in an FPS. How could you F** that up? Give it to Bungie or Insomniac, they would do it justice.
A disappointing game is really down to a player and there preference in what makes a good game, an hardcore FPS fanboy might say GT5 was disappointing because it didn't have guns...
GT5 is by far disappointing
Ok dtrain, care to expand on your comment. With your many hours of playtime I'm sure you've experienced; care to tell us what you found disappointing?
Oh look... Sack boy! I wonder what his opinion on a PS3 related title may be?!
So if he likes sackboy/lbp that mean he hates the 360? OK....... I own both 360 and PS3 but I enjoy my PS3 alot more and there is NOTHING wrong w/ that. Some people have both and enjoy their 360 more and there is NOTHING wrong w/ that. and BTW, you avatar is nothing.
i call shenanigans splinter cell was awesome, dante's inferno beat god of war by a land slide, and medal of honor story was awesome multiplayer not so much
ur obviously off your medications today...
Hahahahahahahahahahah cry more troll. In what way did dante's inferno beat gow? Commercially? Nope. Critically? Nope. Hmmmmm I guess maybe if you had a sacked opinion of the gow franchise then maybe, but it's hard to say Dante did anything new, at least gow did some interesting things with the level design. And btw I am a big fan of dante's inferno, but in no way is it close to the kratos and his fits of rage.
well i may be female but i typically don't wanna see a closet homosexual run around killing everything cause there mad......dante's infero was smoother game play then gow and its the best story too especially if you've read the poem's before
I enjoyed Dantes Inferno more than GOW. But it mainly came down to the characters... I don't care for Kratos, I find him shallow and the story pointless. Dantes Inferno kept me interested until the credits rolled just out of intrigue. I am not mad for hack n slashes in general though, it's a very shallow and limited type of gameplay.
naaa dante was good fun but the GOW mechanix were bettr. And about u <3 medal of honeir ur own ur own with that...
FFXIII was good. Sure the story was pretty meh but overall I really liked the game.
I've enjoyed it too but I was expecting a lot more, especially story wise. I barely got through the beginning because snow kept calling himself a hero, who does that? Glad I persevered, still haven't finished it though.
Dead Rising 2 was awesome.
But only coop.
Battle system in 13 bad story bad ...corridor fight run cutscene /repeat lame last boss corridor terribel FF game but an "OK" game if you dont call it FF btw . did i mention the corridors?
Yeah the whole game was a corridor
The game has a lot more open world than ME2 actually which if you think about it is mostly a collection of tiny rooms. I think both games are great, but FF13 is severely over criticized.
Believe me, if there weren't a map. People would have even noticed.
Army of Poo. Lol!
i kinda agree with the list except vanquish
GT5 win, and you, fanbots, lose.
I bet it is ladies one in one out at your gaff :/
Dante's Inferno was the only game I played on that list and I too was disappointed. So much so I was skeptical of Castlevania but it's been good so far, I'd prefer a continous story rather than selecting missions from a menu. God of War is still the king of this genre.
but of course Dantes Inferno is a poor mans GoW
DR2? Vanquish? Major fail. You don't know your arse from your elbow.
FF13 was a good game, but if you compare it to the other FF, it is a disapointment, it doesn't do justice to the previous ones. Hopefully, Versus XIII can put the series back on track.
i hope that too
Dissapointment is what didnt happen I wanted play Socom4 this year and got stuck w/ CoD...
so true...Cmon zipper.. Release SOCOM4 BY 1ST QUARTER 2011
FF13 is a ok/good game, it did some things so well but others not too well, I like every FF more except FF12, MMO Ff's and FF2. So it was a disappointment, not biggest though. GT5 is a good game too. The list is ok.
dead rising 2? That was one of the best games this year imho.
My biggest disappointments of 2010 were not having enough money and time to play all these games.
Most honest comment I've seen here so far and I agree.
Where both great... The rest of the list I agree with.
I guess I disagree with pretty much this whole article because it's hard to get disappointed by games which I never really had any expectations for to begin with.
Agree, People hype themselves up hoping that the game is the next big thing and when they get their hands on it they wine about how it does not live up to their expectation. I have the most fun from game that I randomly pick up at the store, than go online and find everyone saying how disappointing it is.
I don't see why Medal of Honor should be on the list. I found it had excellent online but if this is comparing the disappointing story lines of games from 2010 then it'd be different.
I mean, if I had to choose one movie that i KNOW was going to make GREAT game, which would i choose? Well obviously rambo....but AFTER that....... James Bond. I mean, C'MON, how hard is it to make a james bond game not good. I think developers have been putting a LOT of effort into messing these games up over the years. Its james bond. Sneaky spy, cool gadgets, car chases, undercover work.......you telling me you can't find a way to mix that up into a good game? Sad.
I LOVED Splinter Cell Conviction. Disagree with the list. I agree with Lost Planet 2 though.
splinter cell was awesome! it was tons of fun, only thing missing was spies vs. mercenaries game mode!
I ordered Dead Rising 2 for the bargain price of something around £20 for Xmas, I got home early from school and it was lying in the hallway... I couldn't resist but have a cheeky play then put it away for xmas. It was really fun! - Not a disappointment at all.. I don't see the point in these articles, Its just somebody else's opinion, why should that concern me? So pointless
