I'd add Brink to that list. That and Dead Island are the biggest letdowns of the generation so far for me.

These games are good but were dissapointing

Gran Turismo 5
Final Fantasy 13
Halo 3 ODST
Bioshock 2
Far Cry 2

etc were some major dissapointments.

Agree but halo odst and ff13 wernt even good. Just dissapointing.

I actually enjoyed Dead Island quite a bit. Especially after the patch.

The campaign in Gears of War 2 was very disappointing, because it was hyped to be "emotional" and make the gamer cry and whatnot. Felt like it was written by someone with Aspergers or something. Same with Gears 3, but that game had really good MP which saved it.

And add all CODs after MW. Tried the demo for MW3. Holy lord, it's another scripted suckfest.

i agree for brink i had a lot of potential but ran out of something.
Most likely time

I agree with Brink and Bioshock 2.

Especially Bioshock 2, such a let down especially when coming off part 1 which was exceptional.

If you really think about it, Grand Theft Auto IV was a huge let down.

I think RE:ORC was a huge recent letdown.

I still laugh when people call Dead Island a disappointment because they got themselves excited over a CGI launch trailer.

Of course the game wasn't going to look like that, you'd have to be half retarded to think it would. And for the record I had a blast in Dead Island playing with a buddy. Can't wait for the sequel.

I did not think it would look like that graphically or anything.

All I expected was that kind of feel, with a good plot and a not so cheesy as fuck usual bullcrap zombie fest of a game, with terribly floaty controls.

I know many who feel the same way.

Dead Island is the most disappointing game.

Anyone who wants me to trek across a resort just to retrieve her damn teddy bear during the zombie apocalypse doesn't deserve to live. Ugh.

I laugh when people think we thought it was a letdown cause it didn't look like the CGI trailer, hello, the game was broken when it came out and multiplayer was basically unplayable for a while.
