Hyped to the moon. But bad, yuck, bad!

Anyone know of a game that was advertised as the ultimate. However, it was a DOG when you looked at it?

Unreal II, best graphics you've ever seen in your life, but incredibly short. Played more like a tech demo than a full retail product. It doesn't even have multiplayer for god's sake, not like I would use it.

If you want to play multiplayer you have to buy Unreal Tournament 2003.

So they get to sell the same game twice!

LOL, yeah it was. I remember everyone was talking about it and how good it will be and all. I think it was hyped by the people and not by the developer ION STORM. Here is a review if you are interested on reading history of this POS game: http://pc.ign.com/articles/153/153095p1.html I think it was amusing.

I have MOO3. No serious issues with it. It did take me about 10hrs to figure out how to play, though. I still haven't completely figured out what the heck I'm doing yet.

Graphics are pretty poor, IMHO. The system requirements reflect that. In game controls are definately lacking, but I haven't decided it is a bad game.

Command & Conquer Generals is an absolute joke in my opinion. A pure story of EA Games trading the Command & Conquer series' addictive properties for enhanced graphics.... All just to sell it. I've played a skirmish or two, a couple multiplayer games, but have never played a single mission. I've had the game for at least two months.

007 nightfire, it's playable but a lame attempt at being a good multiplayer

I remember that huge hype around Daikatana and especially its level design, which turned out to be a big pile of poo...

Welcome to AOA, t_style!

I never bought the game. I remember that lots of gaming sites tromped on Daikatana, and hard. Great disappointment, as I recall.

It looks like another daikatana . I wonder if Half Life 2 will also be a POS. I don't think so. Have you seen that 500 MB movie from E3? Is awsome and with so good sound and quality the game looks good.

It'll be interesting to see how long HL2 lasts without counter strike but it'll probably last as long as the original. That 600MB 20 min preview looks ******g amazing ;D

A 600 Mb preview of H-L 2? What a mind blaster: the original H-L was ~400 Mb for the whole game!

How did they make it so small?

i remeber a game called shadow warrior back in the duke nukem time..... duke as a samurai..... it faded away faster than i could uninstall it

there are a bunch of crap games .... like c&c tiberiun sun was ****ty...i bought that game and havent ever touched it....i installed it and played it twice... then said this game sucks....

like the hl2 game..... supposedly they are making it so that the games such as cs and dod will be able to port over without having to completely remake the game.... im sure it wont be long after hl2 comes out that we see cs2 and dod2
