NowGamer: There's some superb games available exclusively on 360, but for every classic, there's a duffer...
Two Worlds wasn't that bad! If anything Too Human was the worst or ODST or Halo in general :P.
whaaaaaa odst is only 4 hours long!! i was thinking of getting it on ebay dang well might as well go with my second choice (dragon quest 9)
Why why why do we love to fall for these bull crap type "top ten games my ass likes or not likes or whatever just click on my site" 'articles' It's like flies to crap. I saw this and then 10mins later it was over 300degrees lol why do we do this to ourselves? lol
There's no other way to explain these opinions. Halo ODST. Short, maybe, but "worst of"? Come on! Too Human and Two Worlds worst crimes were being merely average. His worst of PS3 list is just as head shaking. Don't give this site your hits. There's no thought put in here at all.
ODST was short and it's only multiplayer addition lacked matchmaking but I'm still not sure that it deserves to be titled the 5th worst 360 game.
Two worlds is the Lair of the 360. Both pretty cool games that got trashed for really nothing. Lair's motion controls were fine, people mistook strait up and down with pivoting along their elbows. I know I did at first, but the moment I realized it(2 hours in, I can see why others had trouble, needed a better control tutorial) I never made that mistake again. I have to think a lot of reviewers got a beta copy or something of two worlds, because when I got it, it was not nearly as buggy as they accused it of being. I also did not follow any pre-release hype, so I don't think I got the let down feeling that many people got.
Seems like Nowgamer is just looking for easy hits. ODST being one of the worst you gotta be kidding me. There are far worst games out there ODST is a great game. But this is what I have to expect from Nowgamer this website shouldn't be taken seriously. They also listed Mag as one of the worst PS3 games yeah definitely should not be taken seriously.
Two Worlds was alright and Too Human wasn't overly bad just not what I expected. I think the list could have been made better, rather than just name drop to get hits. (Same could be said about the similar ps3 list)
Yeah, although I did find myself a little addicted to Two Worlds, that game was a technical mess. I bet there is a crappier title than ODST out there, I doubt they really did their research and just grabbed the first 5 out of the ones they have played or are familiar with.
I really enjoyed Halo ODST. Apparently, so did nearly 6 million other gamers...ARTICLE FAIL...I thought the story was great with all the flashbacks and taped additions. The sub machine gun and pistol made for a AWESOME combination, I hope Reach has them. Driving around the burnt out city with a mongoose was great fun, once I found it. The soundtrack was as haunting and beautiful as any in gaming...ADD Firefight, which was an entire new Multi-player horde mode...ALL the Multi-player maps +4 with all the features that make Halo legendary and you had one of the best packages around. ODST sold more than UC 1 and 2 COMBINED...Nowgamer, what do you expect. Too Human ran into Unreal problems, A likely excuse to continue to milk M$. They had to port all there game data to another engine. Pretty dumb on their part. I think those lawsuits are still pending. That was suppose to be a trilogy...lol...I don't think M$ wants anything to do with them...
Many people buy it, equals good game? So if one million people buy Leisure Suit Larry, is it good? Shadow Of Colossus did not sell very well, so did Ico, still games that are million times better than a game that sold a lot more than these two tiles. Dude, start playing games and not sales.
Well if ODST is in the bottom 5 then the 360 worse exclusives aint bad at all, odst was fun but short and 80% plus on the metacritic gives a bit of a clue that it wasnt that bad
You think that all 6 million of those people enjoyed it? Sales aren't everything.
20 disagrees from people who haven't played the game. This site is an odd one. You know you're intelligent if you get Disagrees and you know you're a PS3 fanboy if you get Agrees.
I don't really like ODST or Too Human, but there are other titles that can take the place of those!
There was that Vampire game that was pure $h!t.
that game was eventually ported to the PS3... Hour of Victory was a real stinker, but there are others that could should be here
I hope crappy games like that wont start flooding the 360/PS3 because of motion control. Wii has so much shovel ware it's insane.
now im waiting for the top 5 worst ps3 games article to come up. u all know its around the corner :P
Actually, we already posted that one. The article was always going to be a two-parter. We separated them because it's just meant to be a bit of light-hearted fun, not flamebait; hence only posted in relevant section.
Yeah. Sure. If you say so.
where the hell is Bomberman Act 0 then if you'r not trying to cause a ruckus... and both the Zoid games... god the list of games that were trash compared to everything (except HoV) is crazy long
It's been done already, Haze was number 1
but was surprised about HALO: ODST. I have friends that loved that game and played it's "horde" mode.
Firefight is awesome, but unfortunately there is no matchmaking so if you don't have friends online you are SOL. It's a decent title though, I seriously doubt it's the 5th worst 360 exclusive. And now that I'm thinking about it, wasn't Two Worlds also a PC game?
Perhaps PDZ. It's the worst 360 exclusive that I own anyway. Had more enjoyment from ODST's firefight alone than all of PDZ, and even PDZ didn't do bad critically.
... but then again, even the HALO Community at Bungie.net is split down the middle as to whether ODST was good. I think that had MS sold ODST at $40, it would've done WAY better critically, and would've sold ALOT more. But hey, that's MSFT for you. Money grubbers. IMHO though, I loved ODST, it was a great experience, and a fresh perspective on the Halo universe.
Even though I HATE Halo, Halo ODST wasn't that bad. There's plenty of actual shitty games that could fill the #5 spot.
Two Worlds and Hour of Victory are on PC as well, from what I've heard, Two Worlds is actually better to get on PC than 360 but still not a great game overall. This list is pretty fail if games like ODST are on it, I doubt this author games much to boot. -Vampire Rain -Bomberman: Act Zero -Yaris
Agreed. ODST was overpriced, by by no means was it a bad game. As for Bomberman: Act Zero...
odst was kinda cool 7 out of 10 for me decent game... idk why everybody hates it
I remember playing the demo and not believing anyone would actually publish it, but they ported it to PS3 too later. Epic fail game...
Too Human wasnt that bad...I thought it was decent at best however all that hype didnt help.
I understand the criticisms of ODST, but I think I could find some exclusives that were far worse....and Two Worlds is that bad.
No. ODST was actually effin fun. I played Firefight with my friends like a crack addict for a while. it was so fun. & I love the campaign. I played it a bunch, because it was just so interesting, and there was barely any ammo. It was fun. In my opinion, it was well worth it, with the amount of fun I got out of it, which was a cubic buttload. Plus, I never bought any of the map packs for Halo 3, so that's another bonus for meee... The fact of the matter is that there are far worse games compared to it. I'm not saying it's the best game ever, but it's an 8 in my book. And, sure, Dennis Dyack is a grade A D-bag, but I think that Too Human was actually pretty fun. I mean, the auto-targeting was absolute trash, but it was a unique experience. I never bought it, but my friend let me play his for a little while.. There are worse.
Just like the ps3 list with MAG, whats ODST doing there lol ODST was certainly my least favourite of the series and wasn't quite up to the standard of the others (mainly because it was an expansion turned full game) but it still isn't bad enough to be in the top 5 worst exclusives for the system.
MAG is a technical feat, at the very worst. I know people that absolutely love it. It doesn't belong on a worst-of list. & agreed with ODST not belonging on there either. :)
too human was amazing just a letdown because you can see how close it came few things added coulda been great trilogy like mass effect it was fun because your always fighting and leveling great loot game needed more story
ODST as #5? Unless every other 360 exclusive is a masterpiece, I have no idea where that's coming from at all
Well i cant really argue with that craptastic list.
ODST was perfectly fine as a single-player experience other than it was short. I didn't like the music, but not much else. The online was good, but the fact that they replicated maps was the only downside if you are a Halo fan, because you'd already have the maps. Too Human is a mixed bag. Good as a game, bad as a game if you count the story. I liked the graphics and the gameplay... movement was a little stiff, but other than that it was fine. I didn't like the fact that they didn't go all in with the Norse Mythos and I didn't like the interaction between the "gods" and the humans; there was not a lot of reverence from the humans, and the "gods" were wimpy and ignoble. It also didn't have the "feel" of an ancient civilization, even if it was supposed to be advanced. A good mix of modern and ancient dress styles would have helped, for example. The dialogue was the worst for me, it brought back the same angst as when jar-jar first said "ex-squeeze me" in chapter 1 of the star wars movie. I never played the other games, though.
fail list no bomberman act zero
I have the dubious honor of having completed Bomberman Act Zero. If you ever want a nice chunk of gamerscore, the game isn't even that hard, despite the no-save, 99-level, one-hit-death reputation it has received! If you aren't set for life by the end of the 20th round, you suck at life. There is a combination of weapons that makes you practically invincible and able to blanket the game area with an all encompassing, unavoidable hellfire that decimates all in your path. Simply survive the sudden death rounds (where a block can drop on you and insta-kill you no matter how many extra-lives you have) and 99 rounds is easy, repetitive, and a little time-consuming.
And better than Risen too
Few things in the world have ever been less right than that statement.
You obviously never played Oblivion.
Oh, you must be one of those people who thought Demon's Souls was good, too.
ODST was awesome, but the campaign was short. IT still gave you firefight, which is a blast.
How about you go finish ODST achievements then let us know how short it is. From what I see via your GS you got some work to do.
Let me say it again. The campaign was short...I played through the whole thing on Legendary. Is that enough for you? I have to get every achievement and count those hours?? Sorry, but trophies and achievements are optional. They do not count in the length of a game. Edit: Did I also mention that I have every single player achievement except 5?
ODST? What the fuck was this man smoking.
Too Human was a great game. Of course, I didn't hype it like crazy.
I only ever played the demo, but Darkest of Days was horrible.
ODST was beast of a game. And who ever think it was short better have all 1000 achievements. That game is short on easy when compared to the rest of halo series. Not on Legendary. And definitely not 4 hours on any difficulty setting.
Haven't played any of them.
Average List mine are 1. Bulletwitch 2. Ninety Nine Nights 3. Velvet Assassin 4. Too Human 5. Halo wars hated that game.
Wow, after reading this and the PS3 version of this article, I can put the author down as "least knowledgeable games journalist on Earth". I can't wait to see what he comes up with next.
For having the chutzpah to slate that overhyped, under-performing tosh ODST. Both in this article and in your review.
i think when they list these games, for both consoles, there are worse games than the ones listed, but these are the ones that had a relatively high budget or hype around it that didn't end up living up to expectations... or were actually just terrible.
is a horrible game...
amen, played the demo for Crackdown 2 yesterday. Feels like a 3rd person halo with last gen graphics moved to hd
Yeah I was never a fan of Crackdown... haven't tried the sequel's demo yet though. ODST was decent for a rental. Too Human was actually really fun but super short... I remember beating it like 4 times over a weekend to try and rack up some achievements.
It needs some ironing out, but I loved Crackdown! It has that look and feel that reminds me of the fun I used to have on last-gen consoles, with a current-gen take. I haven't tried the demo for the sequel, but if it's gameplay isn't tampered with in the wrong way, I'm sure I'll still enjoy it. What I think they needed was inFamous-like climbing skills with Red Faction-like destructive environments. Scaling buildings wasn't as fun as inFamous or Assassin's Creed. Oh, and the story was pretty damn bad.
Too Human was badass. Back off.
Obviously the writer has not played many 360 games... What about Vampire Rain, Pimp my Ride, Onechanbara, Kengo Legend of 9, America's Army True Soldiers, You're in the Movies, etc. I find it hard to put Halo ODST, Too Human, and even Two Worlds below any of these... Sounds more like a Sony fanboy thing.
I really enjoyed the single player campaign for ODST, it was fresh and different than the same stuff Halo games usually have.
