Several members of the GoozerNation editorial staff got together to discuss the biggest disappointments from last year. Here now, are their thoughts on which video games bit the dust.
Am I the only one who enjoyed MOH multiplayer?
it was pretty bland compared to bad company 2 but it was decent enough
I liked it because it was COD without all those damn kill streak rewards. I liked it for it's simplicity. But BC2 is definitely one my favorite FPS's @ Solid Snake That's why I liked it.
not at all. i think its a great mix between CoD and battlfield. battlefield BC 2 is still a better game but MOH still holds its own.
i liked it but you had KS in MOH.
Yeah it wasn't bad, just that not many people were playing it online and there was only three classes. I enjoyed what I played of the MOH multiplayer.
Kane and Lynch 2 ending... (sigh) Dear Lord...
what an awful game.
I have to agree Kane and Lynch 2 was so short
It was short but i LOVED that game. There are no other great gritty crime sagas like it. I loved throwing n shooing propane tanks, the part where u shoot the thugs coming after ur girl, and the torture part was AWESOME. Nothing like killing peeps naked while bleeding half 2 death lol.
Crackdown 2 and Fable 3. Crackdown 1 had an 83 metascore and Crackdown 2 dropped 13 points to a 70. Fable 2 had an 89 metascore but Fable 3 dropped 9 points to an 80. I'd call that disappoints.
For me it was RDR, I liked the voice acting and setting, but the game was boring. John Marston was a carbon copy of Niko Bellic. I had to force myself to finish the game. FF XIII had boring characters which you didn't really care about. I liked the battle system in FF XIII because I never used the auto battle.
I never played GTA IV, so I can't speak to the resemblance to Niko, but I thought John Marston was a great character. I loved the respect for his family, and the earnest desire to reform himself. I thought RDR was anything but boring.
Yeah he did have respect for his family but most of the game he had the attitude of a typical R* character which he had the attitute of 'he hates the people he works for but has to work for them'. I enjoyed the hideouts but when exploring you always get the other strangers (the people in blue) which was annoying especially the woman with the gang.
I agree on rdr. Horrible gameplay and a tad boring. I would like too see it made a timeline before the one they picked. I know the story was made around the "change of things". Nonetheless it was boring. But FFXIII: Haters gonna hate as always.
I loved the FF XIII soundtrack, sounds similar to FF X soundtrack (main composer did Besaid Island). I also liked the GT 5 soundtrack. I liked the battle system because I never relied on the auto battle to do everything like most people did, it was fast and made me think what strategy to use in a battle. The only bad thing from the battle system for me was staggering the enemy most of the time. I thought the characters were a bit boring, I didn't find Vanille annoying like some people did. I didn't care that the game was linear, FF X was linear too. Just the way the story and characters were presented made the game feel boring.
Call of Duty Black Ops was the biggest dissapointment for me. Plus Fable 3 was dissapointing as well. Just my opinion no need to fret over it.
Black Ops single player campaign was worthless...so terrible. Zombies and Multiplayer I can at least deal with. Fable 3, Kane & Lynch 2, Crackdown 2...these are all games worthy of being forgotten.
