"After all the hype, all the commotion, and all of the promises, these 10 individual titles have let down a majority of gamers worldwide for various reasons. "
Calling FFXIII the #1 disappointment on the 360 when some FF fans consider it being on the 360 the reason why the game was disappointing.
Lol Btw, this list lacks Crackdown 2 and Splinter Cell Convictions.
SC: Conviction was actually a pretty damn nice game. Crackdown 2 however, was a tragedy.
It was expected that Crackdown 2 would suck. With MS taking away the lead dev and rushing it to the streets, expectations shouldn't have been high.
Agree with Blaze929, Splinter Cell was no disappointment. Another two games I'd add to the list are Infinite Undiscovery and The Last Remnant both of which I was hyped for coming off of Lost Odyssey and both of which really let me down.
Splinter Cell was very fun but a bit repetitive. The MP was ace. I'd go for Too Human.
Splinter Cell to me was awesome. It felt like I was playing a jason bourne movie. Crackdown 2 is fun with co op. I didn't enjoy gta 4 as much as san andreas but it was still a good game. It was really polished and had a great story.
Those FF fans are idiots, they will come up with any excuse for an FF game being bad when really Square Enix should take all the blame.
Don't bother half the idiots on N4G act like the 360 killed there entire family...
the multiplayer stuff in splinter cell was great..The single player a little too repetitive and they cheaped out on character voices. I really liked that game, GTA should not be on there either...The single player wasnt amazing but it was good, I loved playing GTA multiplayer for almost 18 months.. This list is pretty bad. If you dont believe that I played GTA that long, check out my youtube page and you will see some of great footage I captured. [put my username into youtube]
I'm with you on Medal of Honor - that was one big letdown from start to finish. What a disappointing addition to what was my favourite franchise.
Medal of Honor was a great game. The story was non-existant but everything else was just solid. About the story, not every game needs to have super soldiers saving the earth from crazy terrorists who want to nuke the shit out of America uhum uhum CoD anyone?
Lies. Terrible game. Only because it followed mag and bad co 2. Had it come out five years ago, I'd probably would found some redeeming value in it. 8)
Many, but not all, of these seem to agree with popular opinion. This mostly seems like a useful list of games to avoid.
I love how any dumbass can make a list and get it posted here. Grand Theft Auto IV? seriously?! idiot.
I like that game alot as well as five others on that list. I think people look into things to hard (moh not withstanding, that game deserves it's negative rep) and forget to just enjoy things. Accept them for what they are and not what 'you' wanted them to be. It's how I learned to love ff13.
I can't understand why so many people dislike Halo 3: ODST. As for me, it's far better than Halo 3 and Reach. Actually, it's the one closest to the original game. Honestly, I feel sorry for this guy considering ODST the second most disappointing game on the Xbox 360. I hope, he just didn't play it...
The writer is sort of a dummy. There is no such thing as Nail in the coffin in a franchise that has set itself apart for delivering a completely different game every time. Thats just grammatically impossible. Seen how each game is and will be different, so will be the reactions and preferences.
Disagree with a lot of this list - but the biggest question is where is Crackdown 2?
I can understand why even good games can be somewhat disappointing. I think Fable 3 deserved a spot on this list. It just wasn't very good.
Couple of those games are my favorite
hmmm i actually like a few of those games
Yea, i dont know if i agree with some of them. GTA - awesome..plus didnt it win a few awards? Reach - awesome, best halo to date.
ahh yeah disapointing games yeah!!
GTA is on that list ? wtf is wrong with this guy. he needs to go play the wii and needs to STFU.
Crackdown 2. Not sure how they screwed that up so bad.
Really? Halo 3 wasn't good? I'll be sure to avoid it.
remember it said gt4 and resident evil is a disappointment, not a failure
I quite enjoyed Perfect Dark Zero...
Everyone has their own opinions. Some I agree on and a few I do not. Great article thanks for writing it.
