Most Disappointing Video Games of All Time

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Aliens: Colonial Marines Aliens: Colonial Marines

Very few games were so sorely disappointing as Aliens: Colonial Marines.

It had everything going for it. Finally, a true sequel to the incredible movie Aliens, greenlight by 20th Century Fox themselves to overwrite Alien 3 and be cannon. Previews looked amazing, and it had so much promise. It was a to-die-for recipe for everything fans of the series could ever hope for.

Then... it came out.

It wasn't that it wasn't awe-inspiringly great. It wasn't that it wasn't awesome. It wasn't that it wasn't just good. Or okay. Or even mediocre.

It was bad.

Graphics had been downgraded. It was buggy, boring, repetitive.
As the story unfolded, it had been lazily handed off from company to company with the thought that "they'll finish it and give it back" until no one cared about it anymore. And in the end, it was just rushed together so they could finally deliver and get it out.

What a waste...

Thank god alien isolation came out to save the series

Really buggy A.I that really ruins this game. - htoutlaws2012

That's not how you spell Star Fox Command.

Just because the Star Fox 64 elitists hate it, doesn't mean you should listen to them.

Great game I love tomb raider

24 Mario Party: Island Tour Mario Party: Island Tour

Ugh I thought this game would be good. Isn't Mario Party games awesome well this game will change your mind. The games have poor gameplay and poor map designs. And it feels like the npcs have more of a chance of defeating you. - spodermanfan1000

Uggg one reason why Nintendo should buy hudsonsoft off konami, to make better Mario party games

25 Watch Dogs Watch Dogs

I learned my lesson about pre ordering games after this crap. It's Grand Theft Auto without all the good things only the bad ones, and with a super gimmicky hacking mechanic.

26 Action 52

If you get this game and check all 52 games, all you'll be wishing for is your $200 back.

28 Star Wars: Battlefront Star Wars: Battlefront

The original games were so good, the second being my favourite Star Wars game (sorry KOTOR fans) but this game is an insult. No space battles, different troopers, or even a campaign or split screen multiplayer online. Even the multiplayer isn't that good. Only 3 heroes per side, Palpatine absolutely sucks and Luke vs Vader feels like banging 2 toys together. There is no flow and nothing from the prequels (some argue that's a good thing, but who doesn't want to play as Darth Maul? ) Overrall, this was wasted potential. A remaster of the first 2 games would've done the series more justice.

This game deserves a lot more. It needs more maps and game modes to begin with. Not through DLC! Thanks a lot EA for ruining this one.

50 dollor season pass like 10 maps no single player microtransactions and bland gameplay while everyone expected it to be epic - ikerevievs

It's considered the worst game of all time.

This game wasn't a disappointment, it was just plain bad!

Anyone else thought a Superman game would be good and not a load of trash?

31 Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric

I was actually expecting this to be great but sega screawed us over and gave us a crappy game - ikerevievs

32 Mass Effect 3 Mass Effect 3

Ending aside this entry is fantastic. I was more disappointing when I played 2 and realized they had removed ALL weapons and armor collecting from the first game.

Taking away charm and likable characters you grew to love over 2 games to boring incarcerates and making the past 2 games lair's

Great movie, but horrible video game.

When you see LJN it's an obvious seeing of bad game written all over it. - htoutlaws2012

34 Pokemon Go Pokemon Go

I personally find this a failure. A lot of die hard Pokemon fans now think all Pokemon have CP, and a lot of zoos, museums, and restaurants have people coming not for reptiles, fossils, or food, but for the app. My god...

This Garbage Is Brainwashing People And Its More Overrated Than Frozen To Be Honest

This game has dumb Pokemon in restaurants! When it came out, 45% of people came to them just to catch the dang Pokemon!

Congrats! You killed 0.01% of the population! - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

35 Titanfall Titanfall

Best FPS this gen. Destroyed Call of Duty and Halo completely. PS4 fans ruined it's reputation.

37 Paper Mario: Sticker Star Paper Mario: Sticker Star

Ugh I was so hyped for this game. I played super paper Mario and I loved that game. I had such high hopes for this game but all my excitement fell down the drain. It had a weak story, confusing level design and there isn't an xp system, which makes battles pointless. Definitely a major disappointment.

38 Minecraft Minecraft

Minecraft fanboys are the worst. I know this will get like 3 downvotes because of them. They defend their game in the stupidest way, by saying "BUT ITS FUN EVERY GAME IS THERE". Get real. Pokemon isn't a bunch of blocks.

I always thought after you played mine craft a couple of times it became really boring. A lot of people will disagree but this is one of my least favorite game ever

TopTenJackson, this is not supposed to be a mortal kombat parody. The blocks are a characteristic and the game is supposed to be creative, not limited shooting and leveling up. Go back to your Call of Duty.

Game is great and you idiots this game has NO graphics and Really all you people like is nudity and gore
