Perfect Dark Zero. What a horrible follow up to Perfect Dark

kltpzyxm347d ago

I remember that I bought a 360 mainly for that game, and what a letdown that was.

FlavorLav01347d ago (Edited 347d ago )

Bought PF:Zero at the 360 launch and thought it was hot trash. That game deflated my desire to see that franchise make a return

Sono421347d ago

Personally mine is a sequel to literally one of the best games of all time, and this sequel makes the first game mean absolutely nothing, this sequel is better off never being made, the story is just that bad. A huge shame because the developer actually has the best talent in the industry, but it only took a select few to ruin the game.

DMC2
Resident Evil 4
Breath of The Wild

I thought watch dogs 2 more than perfect dark zero.
at least perfect dark remained the same as it's demo and E3 gameplay.

Ricegum347d ago

So did Watch Dogs 2. I think you're confusing it with the first Watch Dogs.

Halo 3( liked it but nothing compare to halo 1/2 so a tad disappointed, multiplayer was the shit )
Any assassin creed after black flag (again liked it but wasn’t as good)
Star ocean 4
The recent mass effect. ( mass effect 1 was only yhe reason I bought a 360 and what made me fall in love with the series)
Ratchet and clank All 4 one if you count that as a sequel
Kill zone shadow fall ( like halo good but wast like 2/3)

Resident Evil 5

Dead Space 3

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts

Nitrowolf2347d ago

I can agree with those.

I kind of want to throw KH3. It was a good game, but for a final part in this first act Saga, I wish it went out with more.

Mafia 3
Perfect Dark Zero

Profchaos347d ago (Edited 347d ago )

Mafia 3 was a pretty big disappointment give us awesome characters setting and music only to make you repeat the same racket disruption actions over and over for hours until you get Sal's attention instead of fleshing out the story

It was like far cry camps on steroids and relies to much on fanfare of Mafia 2 by giving vitto such a large unessacery role a cameo is fine but I want to live in the world mafia 3 is building not be reminded how badass vitto was and make it look like he can't take on a gang of thugs at the docks now.

bouzebbal347d ago

tell me why Dead Space 3 disppointed you? i'm very curious..
i loved it, it improved over DS2 in many ways. Only weakness is lack of monster variety.
The seemless experience with no load screen between chapters, weapons customisations were great additions.

-Foxtrot347d ago

It was a shit horror game

It went full on action

They added some generic space marine as your buddy, even though they had Ellie

They obviously didn’t learn from Capcom with what they did to RE5 after RE4

The story despite being silly got far too dumb this time round.

You could end up over powered far too quickly

It wasn’t survival horror...you know, what the game is supposed to be.

It’s the worst one in the franchise and hell...it pretty much killed it.

bouzebbal346d ago

I never saw dead space as a survival horror.. It has always been an action game for me and DS3 was good in that sense.
I would have preferred if it was darker like ds2 though, but I had a blast until the platinum

I don’t hate any or these games, but my list would be:

Dead Space 3
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm
Sly Cooper 3
Perfect Dark Zero (this is technically a prequel)
Gears of War: Judgement (again a prequel)
God of War: Ascension (again a prequel)

ZeekQuattro347d ago

Mass Effect 3. It was the typical sequel where it looked and played better than the previous entry but it felt like it was missing the charm of the last one. Some of my favorite crew mates were reduced to cameos in 3 and the new ones just weren't as good. The eventual fix they offered did little to rectify it either.

Profchaos347d ago

Yes so much yes it's in the same level as Andromeda for me it's serviceable but missing what made 2 so special

Manubiggs346d ago

It has to be Andromeda for me. I have tried many times but can't bring myself to finish it ...I get so bored.
