Alright I disagree, It had way more maps to play online with and no overpowered pistol. Plus it added the Arbitor to coop and online which created more variety.

Well, I did say H2 outperformed H1s multiplayer.

 

The overall atmosphere blew it (need I say "imo"?).

Dragon Age 2:
Whilst Dragon Age Origins had some amazing old school gameplay combined with an epic story and journey, Dragon Age 2 had basic combat with little to no tactics (endless waves of enemies didn't help), poor character creation and a stream of reused art assets and levels. The whole game was uninspiring and even a good (albeit a personal) story and interesting cast of characters didn't really help matters.

Final Fantasy XIII
I won't go into details as it's already been covered in many threads. Basically, overly linear, poor cast, poorly told story, over reliance on datalog, lack of variety etc.

Deus Ex: Invisible War
Deus Ex was the greatest game of all time (as voted for by PC Gamer UK). The sequel did everything to simplify the game down for console players to the point most console players think "wtf is this?!". Still had an involving story and felt Deus Ex-like in places but small levels, overly simplified RPG elements, and some rather odd questlines (e.g. "You're responsible for the death of my wife.... but I will give you a chance to redeem yourself with this new quest!") left it an average experience.

Call of Duty 3:
Didn't realise it was a different developer. One of the worst FPS' I've ever played. Can see why they didn't bother with a PC version.

No, because I am not one of those arrogant guys that seem to swamp this place and only like one company. Why so serious?

I thought that last line made it clear that I just turned less serious :P



Metroid prime 3 and Halo 2..... WHA?! And metroid prime you say is awesome in every way except you didn't like that it was on wii.

From the original article I would say yes to Angel of Darkness and Duke Nukem. However for myself I would say Warrior within isn't entirely well placed on the list. It was a great game it was just an odd direction to take the series. So I guess in a way it was a disappointing sequel but feels unfair to say so when it was still so brilliant.

Lost Planet 2 should be on that list, it was a complete screw up.

Assassins creed revelations should also be on there. A sequel where literally the only good part of it was the core gameplay from the original game years and years ago. Almost every addition took away from the title.

Could put a load of games from the PS2 era and earlier on there. The entire turok series after 2 for example lol.



Turkish says and I'm allowed to quote that: Uncharted 3 and God Of War 3 look better than Unreal Engine 4 games will or the tech demo does. Also the Naughty Dog PS3 ENGINE PLAYS better than the UE4 ENGINE.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Well, yeah. The Wii hardware is/was very disappointing in my opinion. I can't be the only one to think that.

Edit: And the controls obviously messed up the experience for me. FPS is supposed to be played with KB-mouse and/or actual controllers, not remotes.



I agree with you in all of then, less on Metroid Prime 3, in fact is my favorite game of Prime series



Final fantasy 13 and resident evil 5.
