As this console generation approaches the end, what were some of your biggest disappointments? I'll start.
Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World
I loved the GameCube Tales of Symphonia game, as it was my first introduction to the "Tales of" series, an excellent JRPG with a fun combat system, had a fantastic plot and great characters, and was co-operative so I played over 100 hours with a friend. I again loved and played a ton of Tales of Vesperia for the Xbox 360 when it came out. When the Wii sequel to Symphonia was announced, I was all in, and then it came out and I was sorely disappointed. The battle mechanics were wonky, the characters and voice acting insufferable, and overall a big let down. I would prefer they'd never made it at all.
Oy. Fable 2 was a different game than I expected, but I still enjoyed it. Fable 3 was the same combat I found a bit strange from 2, but with a weird story line layered on top, lots of backtracking, and less endearing characters. And I think the series is dead now.
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
I couldn't think of a PS3 exclusive I played to put on this list that was as big a disappointment as this game. It showed so much promise in the tech demo videos that were shown, but the game they built around the tech just wasn't good enough. A Jedi/Sith that can bring down a Star Destroyer shouldn't have trouble fighting a rancor, much less some random trooper or droid. The controls and camera didn't do it any favors, either.
Anyone else care to share their biggest disappointments?
