Most Disappointing Xbox 360 Games

The Top Ten

1 Duke Nukem Forever Duke Nukem Forever

In development for 12 years... This game could and SHOULD have been great. It should have brought Duke back in all his glory. It just tanked instead. It was stale, and way outdated. I personally think that it should have been scrapped entirely and instead of being "revived" half a dozen times, just started over. So much wasted potential... Still should have the title of the Most infamous game never made. - Kazzong

Destroys everything you ever knew and loved about Duke Nukem, this game was in development hell for over a decade, and the only thing that is sad about that, is that it ironically came out at all, it should NEVER have come out at all.

It couldn't possibly have lived up to a dozen years of waiting, but at the very least it should have been something more than completely forgettable. A simple remastering of the previous game would have been a far better product. - HenchmanNo2

Honestly one of the worst games ever, I was expecting a lot, because, I love Duke Nukem. But this... No. - danielwotsits

2 Halo 3 Halo 3

Really this game is god compared to 4 which is an utter disappointment - htoutlaws2012

What... best installment to halo series since 2 - xCHAOSNARUTOx

Lol why isn't Halo 4 here instead? Halo 4 was like a hard slap to the face.

I like halo sadly I haven't played them all would like to play and see if the list is right or the people

3 Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts


Microsoft bought rare, which in turn lead to this... Don't even look at any game pics, doing so will turn all childhood memories of awesome into hellish nightmares for all of eternity.

i had the nintedo 64 banjo-kazooie, and when i first played it i was like cool, then the second time i was like, why the hell did i buy this crap - munkee_linc97

This was a very disappointing game that I hoped would be like the other before it.

4 Grand Theft Auto IV Grand Theft Auto IV

Halo 3 one of the greatest games of all time, this on the other hand is just awful. For Duke Nukem Forever maybe they waited too long for Dukes comeback cause we all love hail to the king baby and other one liners but maybe time to let him die

It was good but Rockstar must ruin it with simple things like, boring city, lame characters like Roman, stupid plot (Find Money, then done. ), unhelpful friends, too much easy missions that is just driving and shoot, drive anc shoot, drive and shoot... THAT'S ALL.

I love this game a lot, but the reason why I do not like it anymore is because my saved file keeps getting lost so I cannot play from where I left off.

5 Halo 4 Halo 4

Why does everyone hate this game? Sure the DIdact fight sucked. and Cortana's death was sad. But it was still a good game. So people don't like ordnance. I don't care about ordinance. it's just like finding any heavy weapon on the map, except you earn it instead of finding it. I guess damage boost is a little overpowered, speed boost there isn't much of a difference, and over shield, you can find on some maps. I like how even if I'm sr 63 I can still kill an mastery 130. But in reach if I'm a lt. colonel grade 3, I can't kill an inheritor. I like halo 4 and so do a lot of my friends. I don't get why people don't like this game. I like it and think that it's pretty good.

Destroyed an entire franchise

This game does not deserve to be called a halo game under any circumstances - mkultra5

The fact that this is not above Halo 3 is just sad. - htoutlaws2012

I saw the footage of the demo and that worked so well. What the heck happened with the final product? How could they screw it up? Why did they have to rush it? - SelfDestruct

The Fact This Is Below Halo 3, Grand Theft Auto 4, Left 4 Dead 2, And Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Is Just Plain Sad - VideoGamefan5

8 Legendary Legendary

a suspected brilliant thriller, where you take on mythical beasts as a job, but instead you get bad dialogue, a insanely hard first 3 levels and pathetic graphics.

9 Left 4 Dead 2 Left 4 Dead 2

How can someone say this game sucks? I play it almost everyday and absolutely LOVE IT!

This game was okay at first. But it gets old after a while. The constant repeating of lines, nonstop cursing, and it's hard to play when it depends on EVERYONE working TOGETHER. If one person screws up, your whole team is dead. If you play on Xbox Live, everybody there is little kids, don't know how to play, kick you for no reason or not having a mic, and are just pure cruel. There weren't even many campaigns or options to do. Just the same thing over and over.

I was fun for about 2 minutes! But it can now bow down to Minecraft because it is way better than this piece of $60 crap!

Played it at my friends house we played for two days straight

(Addicting to play)

10 Just Cause Just Cause

Just Cause is just terrible, it never has been good, all my friends love it, but I have no clue whhy. - danielwotsits

If you played this one first, it still wasn't great.. But it was okay... The JC2 is SO much better though! So after I beat JC2 I played JC, I expected that it would it would be a little bit worse, but with a new story! Just don't play it.

I just played the demo but it was just terrible, if you get any just cause,
get just cause 3, that is good, really good - EliHbk

I expected much much and much more from this game. Total disappointment. That is sad. Call of Duty is good franchise - Magnolia

15 Dead Rising Dead Rising
16 Call of Duty: Ghosts Call of Duty: Ghosts

I never played a game where I said, "this is absolutely horrible! I don't like this game." Never ever! Until I played Ghosts. It is an absolute horrendous sack of crap! A true disappointment that nearly destroyed the entire franchise! It holds a 2/10 on metacritic in user reviews. And many critics were paid to say good things, but few actually did.

17 Call of Duty: Black Ops II Call of Duty: Black Ops II

I'm the opposite of you guys. This game sucks, I only play it because its Call of Duty. Somehow Call of Duty has managed to establish in all of our minds that it plays the most prominent role in the gaming industry and we'd be crazy not to at least try each year's copy. Even if it's bad we still will end up playing it at one point or another. I'm guilty of this too. It takes serious strength to be able to break away from Call of Duty completely after having gotten at least one of their earlier games (COD1-BO1, when it was good)

I like it, it's only hated because it is Call of Duty.

It's the worst Call of Duty ever. the hit detection was mediocre, and it just wasn't as much fun as games like the 1st black ops.

This is the best Call of Duty game.

18 Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Xbox 360 Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Xbox 360

Who ever says this game sucks just can't afford it. This is simply the best game until TES VI. This has so much content I'm still playing after 3 years after release.

I agree this is one of the best games that have came out in years people still play it shouldn't be on this list at all!

Um, why is Skyrim even on this list?

Such a let down after the previous two masterpieces. - Aeterna

Deserves #5 at most

20 Resident Evil 6 Resident Evil 6

This was sadly my introduction to the famous Resident Evil series, and all I could say was how the gameplay elements sucked in this game. Don't get me wrong, I loved the characters and actually enjoyed the story. However, the quick-time events, the vehicle challenges, and the super zombies that wouldn't die except in cut scenes really sucked me out of the fun that I should've been having.
