Forums - Gaming Discussion - Games That are Good at One Genre but Suck at Another

Tagged games:

Some games combine genres. Sometimes it works perfectly and the two sides work in perfect harmony. Other times it can be a bit lopsided where a game is good in terms of one genre but bad in terms of another.

For example, Resident Evil 5 is a pretty good third person action shooter but most would probably agree it is a poor survival horror game. I think Murumasa the Demon Blade is an awesome 2D hack'n'slash but its action RPG elements are weak. Asura's Wrath was a cool action game but a repetitive scrolling shooter.

 

Any other examples?

My life is a great survival horror game, but a horrible dating sim.



I don't know if this is what you mean but when Castlevania went 3D on... I think PS2, it sucked shit imo. That game was meant for 2D.



Everything that didn't translated well to 3D I guess.

Oh yeah, there's Star Fox Adventures. Nver try to be Zelda again,plz.

Is this a joke or just a really poorly titled game?

Oh no, I like both games. Especially BotW, was never even close to "not liking" that game lol. I'm just answering the premise of the OP.
