Top 10 Most Disappointing Video Game Arcade Ports

egnomac
Sometimes arcade games don't always transfer very well when ported to console systems which can result in down graded graphics, missing characters, or poor gameplay, these are the arcade games that were ported to console games that just disappointed.

The Top Ten

1 Pac-Man (Atari 2600 Version)

How could they possibly screw up something Pac Man, the game just plain sucked. - egnomac

2 Dragon's Lair

There was no way Nintendo could make a decent port of the arcade game especially on the NES, it became a side scrolling game but holy hell is this game impossible to play you can barley take a few steps with our dying every few seconds. - egnomac

3 Mortal Kombat (Super NES)

Because Nintendo didn't want any blood in the game the fatalities were changed and blood was replaced with sweat while the genesis version allowed for the game to play with the blood and fatalities with a code. - egnomac

4 Final Fight (Super NES)

Guy isn't in the game and the two player function is gone as well as one level removed and because of censorship Poison and Roxy were replaced by Billy & Sid. - egnomac

5 X-men Vs. Street Fighter

Because of limitations the game could only support one on one battles eliminating the 2 on 2 battle system from the Arcade and Saturn version. - egnomac

6 Donkey Kong (Atari 2600)
7 Popeye (Odyssey 2)

The graphics look real ugly but can't really expect that much for the system and there's only one playable stage. - egnomac

8 Double Dragon (Atari 2600)
9 Marvel vs Capcom: Clash of Super Heros (PS1)

Same problem as X-Men vs Street Fighter no 2 on 2 tag battle ruins the experience. - egnomac

10 Street Fighter II: Special Championship Edition
