It's time to get past the PSN stuff and get back to games. The Gamer Sheep website has a list of five games that have dissapointed this year.
I hope PSN is on that list. Or at least Killzone 3.
No, but kinect is ;)
Which contradicts the title completely, sure they explain it in the article but it's not a game or any specific game for it. It shouldn't be on the list and if he wants to include it then it should be a separate a article.
yeah kinect is lame,seriously who finds petting invisible tigers fun -_- at least with move and wii you have some hardcore tittles,still wondering how that starwars game will do but i don't think it will turn out that well.
sucks for me i just purchased a kinect all stars and homefront i hit jackpot.
@Zydake: Stick with them. I've had a ton of fun with some fairly big failures in the past (Alpha Protocol from last year being one of them).
You 360 fanboys are getting worse.
@Nathan. Im not a fanboy or defending Xbox but since when has kinect been a video game also? (which is on the list)
Not gonna lie I didn't get Socom4 I only played the online beta but just from the online beta I don't see why people are saying its so bad. I thought the online beta was awesome! But didn't buy it because I don't have the money :P and alot of my friends weren't getting it :P but what I mainly care about is multiplayer and in that division (if you ask me) it was excellent!
Just to let you guys I only own a PS3 and I do believe that the PS3 is better system out of the three consoles, but you Sony fanboys amaze me. You guys will say every single PS3 exclusive is a good game no matter what some of you guys don't even buy the games you are praise, which means you guys are just praising it because it's a PS3 exclusive. Killone 3 is not a good game and it is not better than Killone 2. Killzone went the CoD rout. Killzone 2 was one of the best First Person Shooters this gen. Had the developers built off of what was good in Killzone 2 and corrected what was wrong in Killzone 2 for Killzone 3, Killzone probably would have been in the talks as the best First Person Shooter, multiplayer wise at least. Instead, the developers implemented CoD influences into the game. The guns have no recoil, people drop dead as soon as you lay eyes on them, killstreaks are now, present, people no longer start on equal terms no that perks are in the game, several good features in Killzone 2 are no longer present in Killonze 3, and the list goes on. True fan of Killzone 2(the ones that have played it for 2 years straight) are extremely disappointed with Killzone 3. If all of you nut heads that are praising Killzone 3 would have actually bought the game, Killzone 3 would have passed Killzone 2 in sales by now, but no all you guys do is blindly praise anything PS3 and bash anything that is not PS3. I bet some of you guys think Gears of War is trash, right? lmao Killzone 3 is definitely a disappointment for 2011. Resistance 2 is also another example of a game being disappointing to the FANS. Most resistance fans will say that Resistance is better than resistance 2. Just to let you guys know since you guys wouldn't know since you guys don't buy the games you praise rofl. I really just hope games like Brink succeed so that developers realize that you don't need to be a CoD clone in order to have a successful game. I'm so tired of developers says we want the game to be more "accessible." Just make a damn game without the masses in mind for crying out loud. Focus on making a good game because good games sell(for the most part anyway), don't you guys agree?
Killzone 3 didn't make the list. Therefore list illegitimate.
I got my copy of Killzone 3 the day PSN went down. However, today I busted it open and started playing the single player, and I just can't stop playing it. It does feel like Call of Duty this go around, however, I am enjoying it. I can think of many titles which I would better be suited for a disappointing list.
Yeup, I agree, Killzone 2 AND 3 should have been on that list, they both had an amazingly shitty Campaign, I still think the first Killzone was the best in the trilogy..
@1.2.2 *veeeeeeeeeooooooooo* That's the sound of the point of the article going your head. Also the sound of a plane.
They promised an Epic and engaging story. They said they had writers from RED DAWN movie working on this thing. They had a great scenereo......how'd they mess that up?
exactly! man wtf! this game wasnt a epic fail. but it was still extremely disappointing. i beat it in 5 hours. and kim jong il or his son didnt even come man its bullshit. i want my money back.
it WAS written by John Milius and it was engaging it was just short....there is also a book you could read that gives a better back history too it and if you couldnt tell by the end they set it up to have a sequel....but then again im sure you haven't seen or heard of Red Dawn before they mentioned it and it also takes intelligence to disect and understand the plot....not every game has to pretend its 1952 and we are fighting Russia and communism cause Big brother says commies are evil
I must admit homefront and Socom 4 were very disappointing *sigh*
What a stupid list. Kinect is not a video game, nor was it released this year. And if games like Homefront, Shift 2, and SOCOM4 were disappointing, I wonder what the writer would make of a genuinely bad game. I haven't played WWE, but as it's in a list with Homefront, Shift, SOCOM and Kinect, I'll assume it's better than an average game.
Killzone 3 was/is awesome. Do you losers just whine or do you like playing total eye-candy/sensory overload games? KZ3 was just insane. Maybe you have a tube TV and your idea of surround sound is an audio out to your Sanyo CD Player Boom Box. Games I was a little "dissapointed in" : Dead Space 2 : Felt clumsy at first, lost the scariness of the first one. Good game, was just expecting more after how awesome the original was. Dragon Age 2 : More Linear, Repetitive side quests and environments, can't change party members appearance/armor. Once again a good game but not as great as Origins. Homefront : Great marketing, average (at best) game. Socom 4 : I'm starting to think they should just put a fork in Socom. MLB The Show : I usually love the show. This year has great player upgrades but controls are just getting silly and the game focuses more on RTTS than an actual franchise mode.
Killzone 3 is a huge disappointment for people that were a fan of Killzone 2. Killzone has been made more CoD like with camping being super effective, killstreaks, perks, removing custom games, weapons having no recoil, and the list goes on. Killzone 2 was one the best FPS out this gen. Killzone 3 has been reduced to be a run o the mill shooter. CoD's success is ruining the FPS genre because a lot of developers are making their games like it and Killzone 3 fell victim to this. Killzone 3 is still a good game, but it could have been better if the developers tried to be unique instead of trying be more "accessible." Games are no longer made for the fans... I find that very sad.
I've heard good stuff about Homefront and WWE All-stars don't really get y they're on the list
Homefront has decent multiplayer, however, it's the single-player which is the real sinker (and what the article targets) Whereas Valve can turn a simple concept of portal-based puzzles and make an amazing story around it... Kaos did the opposite. They had an amazing concept that they hardly took any real advantage of.
I have them both and really enjoy each one. Homefront is some of the most fun I have had in an online shooter and All-Stars is a fun arcade style wrestling game.
no dragon age 2?
Just read my mind.
A proper original story for a shooter would be one where the US isn't involved at all. Or maybe have the US as the baddies for once? How about a game where you play as Muhammad locked in a prison being raped by the guards only to escape and suicide bomb a train? Or maybe not...
I want to see that released just so the tabloid writer's head will explode.
My personal disappointments in gaming of 2011 - 1.Homefront Single Player 2.Crysis 2 Single and Multi Player 3.3DS launch
Replace socom4 with crysis2 and the list is perfect imo
1 - Killzone 3 2 - Socom 4 I was led to believe that those two games would be AAA quality and be revolutionary for the gaming industry. The hype simply wasn't justified, they turned out to disgustingly made games and simply a waste of money I haven't really been dissapointed by any others so far.
Perhaps you should just go back to playing Halo?
might be a good idea seeing as halo has a better MP then both games..Kenect suckkks.
Its easy to pick on the ps3 exclusives, but thats because xbox doesn't have any.
Crysis 2, Dragon age 2,Socom 4, Killzone 3.
socom shouldn't be on there only because the psn is down....really cant judge a game meant for online play Homefront was awesome no matter how short it was kinect is for families and people who can be brave enough to make a fool out of them-selfs with frineds and not be embarrassed .....cause thats where all the fun are i didnt play the other two id say should add portal 2 due to how simplistic the puzzles were my 5 year old niece figured them out and two worlds 2...cause well its two worlds and tho it was better than the first it wasn't good at all
Portal 2 does not deserve to be on that list.
Kinect isn't a game so shouldn't be on the list
Testdrive 2 is a kick in the marbles i actually havnt got many games this year as it digusted me so much seems like this epic gaming year will be one of the most hyped but most failed.
GT5 has to be there! After 6 years of waiting. What we got was not what we expected. It wasn't the critically adored perfect 10's across the board. Normally I wouldn't expect so much but waiting 6 years I expected nothing less. Then we found out it uses GT4 car models for like 700 cars or something. The state of the art game we thought we were getting suddenly pulled back the vale and we saw Kaz was cutting corners. What a disappointment.
Haven't played Socom so I have no idea how it is. But Confrontation was decent for me. As for Shift 2, haven't played it either but I liked the first one. And homefront, love the multiplayer and the battlepoints system. I personally like the game a lot.
Kinect itself is phenomenal, sure most of the games are casual but that doesn't mean its a dissapointment, in fact far from it. The amount of enthusiasm from the community showing off what can be done with kinect, combined with some of the new innovative games that will be using it such as child of eden and gunstringer illustrate precisely what the author has overlooked.
Child of Eden will be just as engaging on PS3 but in 3D. I agree Kinect shouldn't be on the list. Not because it wasn't a disappointment(which is was) but because it's not a game(3DS launch is also a huge disappointment). I'd say there weren't any real disappointments yet. Just some not-so-amazing titles.
I believe Child of Eden will be good on ps3 also, but it will be a different experience really using a controller.
Well, I guess a little different. I assume Kinect is the prefered way. I hope that Move or the EYE will be utilized. This game doesn't need much in terms of the Kinect tech. All it is tracking two hand to move a cursor. There is no depth sensing or voice control, and although the EYE can do that(minus depth) It can just track the hand movement.
In my opinion, every time I see a game listed as a multiplayer game, only for there to be no split-screen in the game, I am disappointed. Especially for games like first-person shooters and racing games. They're tailor made for playing in the same room as your mates. No matter how how good your online connection is, there's nothing like being in the same place physically and REALLY taunting them. :P If developers are too concerned about there not being enough people for a shooter or racer, the solution is simple. AI characters. There's no excuse for leaving it out when you can fit it in.
DC online and MvC3 is on my list
You were foolish to have good expectations about all of those except maybe Socom.
Didn't Kinect realese last year?
playd socom 4 beta , it was fun but not great , it wasn't a disappointing gamme for me because i never lked socom , i always see it a normal game , have fun but not special... kinect sucks homefront sucks WWE All-Stars sucks , it was obvios it's gonna be sucks.. i don't know about shift 2 because i didn't play it... shift 1 was great ..
having only played the socom that was on playstation 2. i find socom 4 to be a really good game, both story and online are very fun.
