Associated Press - Lou Kesten, December 26, 2007:

Worst of 2007:

1. Manhunt 2
2. Vampire Rain
3. Deal or No Deal
4. Lair
5. Escape from Bug Island!

Turkey Shoot:

• Most disappointing: Halo 3 (single-player), Assassin's Creed, Blue Dragon, Heavenly Sword

• Enough already: The Tony Hawk series, World Wrestling Entertainment games, Final Fantasy remakes

• Worst feud: Guitar Hero vs. Rock Band

• Worst flaw in a great game: The inventory management system in Mass Effect

• Worst voice acting: Elijah Wood, Gary Oldman and Billy West in The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night

• Worst cross-promotion: Playboy and Eidos'"Cyber Search" for Kane & Lynch: Dead Men (pictured)

• Most baffling: The Nintendo Wii, still hard to find more than a year after its debut. (Assassin's Creed, Culture, Deal Or No Deal, Escape from Bug Island, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, Halo 3, Heavenly Sword, Kane & Lynch: Dead Men, Lair, Manhunt 2, Mass Effect, Nintendo DS, PC, PS2, PS3, PSP, Rock Band, The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night, Vampire Rain, Wii, Xbox 360)

Alright looks like the other is getting dup'ed out so I'll just copy and paste my comment on here :)

Well I liked most of those games on the list but I can understand were they are coming from. Heavenly Sword was an amazing game that not to many liked. Blue Dragon was a fun RPG with standard everthing with a few tweaks that didn't sell out. AC sold a million and yet most say it was repetative and no replay value. Halo 3 just had to much hype. I totally agree with enough of Tony Hawk (which is why I bought stake ^^), and Escape from Bug Island who didn't know that game would blow?

No fanboy writter seeing that they pretty much covered everything.

I liked Heavenly Sword, it was a great game.
There were areas that could be improved in there, but it didn't deserve the treatment that it got.
I can see where their coming from with AC. I stopped playing it when my next new game came out and have not gone back yet.

"Worst cross-promotion: Playboy and Eidos'"Cyber Search" for Kane & Lynch: Dead Men (pictured)" I agree. When I saw that picture of the hooker on the Kane & lynch poster, I knew it will be a crappy game.

I can recall that when Heavenly Sword commercial was shown, it says "actual game footage".

Then Halo 3 commercial followed and it says "not actual footage" I laughed.

I actually thought Heavenly sword video is just cut-scene but no it was in the actual gameplay. I even played it myself.

first off final fantasy shouldnt even be close to this list... everything else i completely agree expect manhunt (alittle but it shouldnt be there)

Kane and Lynch
If they wanted to best sum up Kane and Lynch they should have just got a psycho crazy woman with one eye in a straight jacket using her teeth to rip out the neck of Jeff Gerstmann while firing at random people with her feet as she awkwardly tries to get into cover.
