Worst Game Everyone Played

The game is up for that award from Gamespot:

http://www.gamespot.com/best-of-2010...ex.html?page=3

I really wanted this game to be great (I preordered it and everything) and was let down.

The choices were from games that sold good although the gameplay was bad.

I thought that Lost Planet 2 would've won.

Me and my buddy just bought Lost Planet 2 and so far it's ok. I only paid $9.95 for it so even though it might suck, it still wont disappoint as much as this pile of garbage.

I loved this game... My favourite was The Predator Campaign, but The Multiplayer was Un-balanced as hell everyone just played as Predators and put mines everywhere. -__-

I don't really think everyone bought it, and I don't think it's that bad of a game either! In all honesty that title would go to Medal of Honor in my opinion! Just cause tons and tons of people got it, but it ended up being very sub par and the multiplayer was not fun at all and had very little to offer.

I think that wasn't one of the games nominated for that award, but I agree that one could be there too. I wasn't expecting much from MOH which is why I felt this was worse.

I didn't think this game was too bad, definitely didn't live up to all the hype though I guess. I loved the Predator and Alien campaigns, not so much with the Marine one.

Wow i thought this game was great! I really enjoyed going for full 1000 (Even if this MP was a little awkard at times) I cant believe players regard it as a terrible game. There are much much worse games out there thats forsure.

While I agree there are far worse out there (Bionic Commando, Sonic) This game was over hyped and sold well. So thats why it was nominated for worst game EVERYONE has played.

I certainly wouldn't put this anywhere near worst game that sold well. I had reservations because of some of the reviews. I ended up buying it for 9.91 brand new. Money well spent as far as i am concerned. Wouldn't have been dissapointed if i had bought at full price.

Marine campaign was full of atmosphere, Alien campaign was fun and i really enjoyed the Predator campaign but i am a little biased as the Predator is my favourite.

The only negatives i would give this game are the graphics should have been a lot better and it is difficult to get a good achievement score. I have spent 30 hours + on this game and only got a measley 570 points. Would have expected at least 800 points for the effort i put in.

Overall though a fine game indeed.

Not your opinion, but overall reviews that were horrible.

I guess the game was reasonable but I really was expecting more. The only campaign that I enjoyed was the Marine, the other two were average. Multiplayer was a mess tbh. Very disappointing. Overall the game wasn't worth full price but luckily I got it cheap

Multiplayer is so fun. The combat system is very different from your typical mainstream FPS game out there. Haven't stopped playing online since release date.

Got a little repetitive and the first level of each species showed a lot of promise but it never really capitalized on it + I would have loved playing as a face-hugger.

Same here, that was one of my favourite parts of AvP2, start as a Facehugger and work your way up into adulthood. Awesome progression.

As for me, I think the game is fantastic. As for amazing sellers that are terrible, in my personal opinion I think the entire Halo series after the first one should take that position. Some of the worst FPS games I've played. But that's just me.

But just because a game gets good reviews doesn't mean it's a good game. I've played plenty of games that were rated as amazing by reviews but ended up hating them. Halo, Res Evil 5, etc. It's why I never listen to reviews anymore, too many times I've ended up hating a highly rated game or loving a badly rated game.

When the campagins come into play I can't find fault with them, Marine is just downright creepy and really captures the atmosphere of the films. Constantly watching your back, looking at the walls and ceiling, jumping every time your motion tracker bleeps. As the Alien it felt so satisfying crawling along the ceiling and silently coming up behind an unsuspecting Marine before killing him. Predator gave all the satisfaction of hunting in the Jungle that you gleaned from the first film.

Overall though, Aliens have always been my favourite to play.

Not my vote for worst

Sorry to disagree with gamespot, but i think this game took the atmosphere and really worked, play with headphone on as marine on nightmare, when the motion tracker starts beeping your heart starts racing, just on the predator campaign now, lovin the power of the beast.

Biggest let down is and always has been the MP, people only play player match as lobby set out for ranked is garbage.

Improve that server and i think more would give it a chance, my own encounter with MP people choose the Alien so i think we have had 3 different points of view on MP which surely is to the games credit.

Peace

Newt

I respawn, run to my body, and grenade your chestbuster ass when you pop out. Then you get hate messages for "worm killer". How's that for progression in the Alien Life Cycle?

That's all I experienced with Life Cycle in AvP2. It got boring and full of whiny b*tches.

I meant the single player. Not MP Life Cycle.

Not the worst game, but a far cry from the greatness of the two previous iterations.

AVP is not the worst game everyone played for sure. My personal worst game is Left For Dead, but it was released way back at 2008, and I DON'T think L4D was up to this kind of award either!
I'll score at least 65/100 for it, and as a fan of Aliens (the movie), I'll give additional 5 points to make it 70/100. AVP does bring out a big part of the world of the original Sci-Fi horror movie (especially in the Marine campaign), but in low-resolution which is the most significant down side (I play 360 version, maybe it is better in PC).
The control is not the best, but it's not bad neither. Anyway, it's an OKAY game.

Thats your opinion on L4D...overall most people loved that game (including myself)....while this game a majority hated it.


With that said..I just rebought this game on an impulse for $9 including shipping on eBay...I really want to try and beat the campaigns on Nighmare...but now that I have it I am avoiding it....
