    Knack was frikkin BRUTAL. So glad reviews hit and I didn't buy it. Still played it a bit on someone else's PS4 and I was like "WHOA, it really IS THIS BAD." Another to add to the list of wide-spread hate was OBI-WAN on Xbox. I didn't mind it & had fun with it, but a ton of people hated it.

    I don't get a lot of the hate for Perfect Dark Zero. Maybe it's because I didn't shell out $60 for it at launch, or had a lot of expectations for it. Part of it also may have to be because I knew about it jumping around a few consoles before it was finalized on the 360, and because the books and comic series were just so dame good. Also, the multiplayer announcer. He just goes apeshit when you have a high killstreak, which is hilarious.

    I enjoyed the MP of Perfect Dark Zero personally. Campaign sucked though. Voice worked and writing just made me hate it. As for the Kinect Sports series, they are far from horrendous. Great motion control games in my opinion that ended up being the most success Rare got on the xbox. Kinect Sports Rivals has been getting solid praise and pre-order numbers as well.

    "Blue Stinger" Dreamcast. Bought the console bought that game, got it home, took me an hour to realize I made a huuuge mistake.

    "we highly doubt we’ll be seeing another Knack any time soon." Which is disappointing because, while the game doesn't come close to the mastery of a game like Super Mario Galaxy or even the greatness of Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time, it's also not nearly as terrible as everyone is making it out to be. I'm not excusing the game's faults - it is certainly unpolished and doesn't completely deliver on its potential. It's also not merely a 'mediocre' game. It is actually quite good.

    For me, A Crack in Time was disappointing. In fact none of the PS3 Ratchet & Clank games have lived up to their PS2 origins in my opinion. They changed too much about the mechanics, and essentially ruined a great series.

    I love my Limited Edition Star Wars Xbox 360... I just got it in June for my Birthday, so I'm a little late. But I love the Library of games available and there is no reason for me to upgrade yet! I'll wait 5 years

    There was far worse launch titles than Perfect Dark Zero.

    They forgot about Lair.
  • Babbage - November 26, 2013 8:21 p.m.

    Lair was at least a year after the PS3's launch.
  • captmotorcycle - November 26, 2013 8:24 p.m.

    Oh yeah. My mistake. I could have sworn it was a launch but I Remember that it came out around the time I got my ps3. Either way that game was terrible.

    I recently picked up Steel Diver for $5 in a K-Mart clearance section. Haven't played it yet, but for 5 bucks I'll roll the dice. I'm going to second Swedish_Chef and name Red Steel as my most disappointing launch game. I had totally bought into Nintendo's dismissal of the hardware d!ck-measuring contest, and I bought it along with my launch Wii on Black Friday 2006, hoping to be validated. It was HORRIBLE! It looked nothing like the colorful, interesting screenshots, the controls were awful, the entire game seemed to be composed of the colors gray and red, and the much-vaunted swordplay was totally broken. It was so bad that I totally ignored the sequel, which is supposedly very good, when it came out a few years later.

    Aw man, I paid $3 for Perfect Dark in 2009 just because it was sitting on the counter, I still felt ripped off.
  • MikeBat68 - November 26, 2013 2:13 a.m.

    I bought the limited edition of it during the 360's launch window. I loved the original on the N64, so I was SURE it was gonna be good. Not so much..
  • BaraChat - November 25, 2013 6:40 p.m.

    When I got a 360, I was happy to finally be able to play Perfect Dark Zero. At the time (around '08 or '09), I was making the horrible mistake of trusting a single website for video game reviews. That website, which is perhaps the most frequented on the Internet, gave the game a 9/10, which is high praise. You can imagine my disappointment when I put the game in and started it. I thought I was in for an epic follow-up to an epic N64 game. It was just mediocre and sad.

    Ta be fair to Godzilla Generations, it did have a decent soundtrack. And you could play as Zilla. Not that Zilla is a spectacular monster or anything, but still...
  • ViolentLee - November 25, 2013 5:33 p.m.

    I literally don't remember that Dreamcast Godzilla game, and I started working at Game Informer about a month after the console launched. As for Perfect Dark Zero, what a HD deuce that was! I marveled at the textures, then gave up after the third attempt on a very early escort-mission level. F that game. Remember what a crappy launch the Japanese PS2 had, though? They had a DDR ripoff, I forget the name. It had this awful cover of My Sherona in it. ::shivers::
