Super Hyped Games Which Failed in 2011

With every year in video games comes the inevitable flops in regards to the hype it received but failed to capitalize and deliver upon it. We take a look at the hyped games that saw a release in 2011 which failed to deliver. (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I agree with Duke Nukem Forever and Brink. The others weren't complete failures.

I still don't get why Dead island keeps making these lists, I enjoyed the hell out of it.

For Duke Nukem i got exactly what I expected the game to be with a few little great surprises sprinkled in.

Now Brink was a major disappointment BUT just like with all games we over hype in our own minds, in a way it's out own fault.

RAGE and Brink were the most disappointing by far. Dead Island is actually one of the BEST games of 2011. Don't understand what people found wrong with that game. I seriously can't really think of anything I didn't like about that game.

Dead Island, Killzone 3 and Duke Nukem Forever kicked @$$. I loved them to death. The others... Not so much...
