Games We're Embarrassed To Admit We Don't Like At All
Video Games are prone to heavy criticism from fans and critics alike. However, there are times when players and critics disagree. Often these titles are hyped up with critical acclaim, only to leave players wondering what they were supposed to be excited for. Here is a list of the most mediocre critically acclaimed games in the market.
Grand Theft Auto IV
'Grand Theft Auto IV' was critically praised upon its release, receiving a perfect score on Gamespot. There were a few glaring issues from fans, including the hyper realistic city setting in which players are required to do mundane tasks for the first few hours of the game before unlocking the rest of the map. Before you can truly access the entire game players must complete nearly half of the game. This certainly did not live up to the promises made by critics at the time.
Bungie's first title after its split with Microsoft was not well received, leaving developers to go back to the drawing board for 'Destiny 2'. Upon release, reviewer scores indicated the sequel surpassed its predecessor. However, fans were disappointed to find the second entry failed to match what they had been told. The game had improved a little bit, but many of the mechanics were the same as before.
Considered to be one of the best of the "walking simulator" titles released in the early 2000s. Players found the game to be disappointing. There is no replay value due to players simply looking at things and observing them. There is not much of a payoff for the presented plot either. All around this title seemed to miss the mark despite its praise.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
The third installment of the popular Modern Warfare series was a simple retread of its more successful predecessors. This entry was the first without Infinity Ward at the helm. There is a noticeable lack of creativity without Infinity Ward, one that critics seemed to gloss over. There was a lot of praise from reviewers upon release. Players found the game had the same exact mechanics as before and a less interesting story.
