    The official: Which games SHOULDN'T I buy?

    We have a thread that helps us decide which games we should buy. I thought we should also have a thread that tells us which games to stay away from.

    If you have any recent games you played and just really hated it, please share that opinion here.


    I will start this thread off with Lego Batman 2 on the PS Vita.

    Reasons
    1. This is a port from the 3DS version.
    2. It is not an open world game as advertised on the PS3/Xbox 360
    3. The PS Vita version only has voice overs during the compressed videos. (Badly compressed)

    This thread is not to be used to argue and explain why you might not agree. This thread is for members to see what complaints others have about whichever game they recommend you stay away from.


    P.S. Though this is in the PS3 Games section, we can use this thread for PS Vita and PS3 games.

    Good idea.

    BTW I've heard the Wii version also isn't open world, so are the Wii and Vita versions the same?

    I think so. I believe the 3DS, PS Vita, and Wii version are all identical.

    lol I actually enjoyed this game. It does get repetitive though.

    I also agree that Tekken 6 is a crappy game.

    And do not waste your money buying Resident Evil 6.

    Damnation could be the worst game I have ever played in my life. Not even worth a rental fee.

    Nice idea but executed poorly.
    Combining vault with sprint was the worst ide ever, I kept jumping over stuff I didnt want to.
    Aim down sights is useless better off aiming from hip
    Maps have horrendous choke points that are impossible to push through so defenders usually win unless they suck really bad.
    Poor performance on PC version desite you having a super computer.
    30FPs cap when playing the solo challenges.

    Also its deader than the Dodo.

    Damnation: Avoid this game at all cost!!.

    Brink: Like, keffy said, nice concept but badly executed

    Resistance: Burning Skies: If you have a Vita and love the Resistance series, this isn't worth the purchase.

    Red Faction: Armageddon:
    Don't be deceived by the success of, Guerrilla, this one takes a leap back for the worse.

    Agreed 100%. I wasted money and time on this piece of ****.

    Guerrilla was good game. I was very impressed with this game and loved to blow up stuff especially with the dynamite that sticks to the buildings and then when you press the button there is a series of explosions which looked superb.

    There newest edition is one of the worst games I have played.

    I know these are all opinions and stuffs but too me, Saints Row 2 wasnt too bad, i played throughout half the game then just moved on because of getting newer games. NFS Shift 2 was ok for its play style but not my type and if you want a racing game like that get Gran Turismo. NFS Undercover was enjoyable because you can play as the racer and as the cop ( correct me if im wrong ).

    Had a blast with this game, actually trying to find somewhere to get it but dont want to pay too much. Anyways back on topic, I think it is good for people that like to spend time playing the older games and not just the newer games that are always the 'best' as some may put it.

    Not entirely, im hoping by that you were kidding. Good for people that like to free roam and play the RPG Type games, lots of variety into Skyrim.

    Haze I had alot of fun playing, sucks that there are no trophies to encourage you to keep playing. Good shooter type game and switches things up part way throughout game. NFSC was also another good racing game that had some fun events into it. Good for racing fans. Some parts can be more difficult but still alot of fun to race comps and your friends.

    Is that the game where you roll around and collect things to get bigger? If so I found it enjoyable but it will get repetitive.

    Look at other post ^


    These are all just my personal opinions and this is how I feel about those games .

    Wipeout 2 PS3: horrible, horrible game. My wife and I had played some Doritos obstacle course game on the 360 that was loads of fun. She wanted a PS3 equivalent, and I thought this would the trick, due to its ridiculous nature. We were wrong. I believe there were 4 or 6 "seasons". But the were basically the same courses with minor changes in certain courses. Stay away at all costs

    I had high hopes of this because the free version is a lot of fun and It hoght this would be too.

    Too much randomness. The powerups you pick up are randomly generated so you neve rknow what you will get, and once activated they activate on all players, the worst one has to be the controller invert which switches your up/down movements around.

    No Free for all or duel modes its stricly TDM or CTF, however a DLC released a few days ago does add in the Duel mode.

    Too many bugs that litteally break gameplay, netcode warping, invisible enemies sound stuttering and cutting out to name a few.

    --------------

    There is a free version for PC and Linux that I DO recomend its a whole lot of fun and FREE.

    Dynasty Warriors 6.

    -The most repetitive game on earth.
    -If you die at a boss, the WHOLE level is restarted.
    -No trophies to keep you playing.

    It's an awesome game, I got it for £20 (not aware of how bad it was), I took it home, and after 20-30 mins I knew I had mad a big mistake, as it was also the only game I bought that day.

    You should REALLLLLLLLLLLY play more video games.

    Where's the "what you've just said could bring on the Apocalypse" emoticon?
    "The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves. We are what we are, in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head. All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.”
