I played TOR beta so I knew to avoid it. Shame, since one of my all time favorite RPGs is KOTOR. I also avoided Diablo II because of the disaster it was in beta.

One Star Wars game I do regret spending money on is The Force Unleashed.

Why Arkham Asylum? That was probably one of the best games out there. I even was able to circumvent the LIVE and play it without LIVE interrupting the experience.

The Force Unleashed is my regret game too~

-Nuclear Dawn (Although I technically got it in a trade)
-Torchlight (It's a good game I guess, but I have other game I'd rather play. Also technically got it in a trade)
-CS:GO (Eh, it's just Counter Strike. Everyone hacks and the community is shit)
-Analogue: A Hate Story (Amazing storyline, great game. But I felt it was way to short for the amount of money that it cost.)

Yep. That's it.

I enjoyed the first game but that may be just because of my massive love for star wars.

Same. I really liked the first game - I own and have played both the wii and PC versions, multiple times...really hated TFU2 however. Luckily I just borrowed the second rather than bought it though, so nothing lost other than 3 hours of my time(Yes, the game really is that short).

I'll have to agree with you there, they had SO much potential with design, they could have opened up light and dark side skill trees and so much more but instead they make a weaker version of the first game.

I've been playing a PC version, and maybe it's just because I got it on discount, but I actually really like the combat systems they had going in TFU II. The boss fights are no longer utter frustration (except for Vader) and the only downside is that the only two new additions, fury and mindtrick, are the most useless things to include. Besides that, I actually don't regret getting it, especially with the fact that the PC version has ways to be modded.

I thought Vader was hilarious in TFU2...In the final level(At least on the wii version, PC may be different), you're in this medical type room with cloning tanks. Vader's at the other end of the room, he points at you and says some insult along the lines of "You suck", basically, then the door closes in front of him and clones burst out. Fight the clones, the door opens when they're dead, run down a hallway and...You're in the exact same room just copy+pasted, Vader throws some other insult that still basically means "You suck and I am superior", then closes the door, clones burst out, ect. That same hallway and room and fight is just copy+pasted, only difference is Vader gets a slightly different line each time.

The thing that really made it funny though, is that he's calling you weak, him superior, ect, all while running away from you!

Yeah...I actually liked that part a bit since I couldn't stop laughing :P

On the PC version, you fight him on cloning platforms, tossing back bacta tanks at him (giving you unpleasant flashbacks to his bossfight for the PC version of the first game) and fighting off clones while sometimes just going toe to to with him. The problem is that you can fall of the platforms and then Vader regains almost all the health you chip away from his healthbar... it gets tiring, eventually.

The Gorog fight was far better, if about equally drawn out.

The only games I have ever bought and later regretted were Assassin's Creed for the Nintendo DS (I don't remember the exact name; all I remember was it was horrible) and L.A. Noire. The worst part is I love Detective movies and novels, and I love film noir. It was supposed to be my best game ever, but it was so boring. There was no overarching plot worth giving a hoot about, and the mechanics quickly became stale. Definitely not my kind of game.

Dec 5 2012, 7:24am Anchor

I agree with the DS Assassin's Creed (was expecting something like AC2, got mario creed instead), but not L.A. Noire.

He's got a point though... some guy in custody is for sure involved with the crime? Try to doubt him and the fucking asshat of a detective accused him of murder fucking up the case... U.=.U ...

Seriously, it scared me away from handheld versions of AAA console games forever! Though, Kingdom Hearts: BBS was great on the PSP.

Obviously it's really only a matter of opinion, but yeah, I think what made it all the worse was that I was really, really looking forward to the game. I think if they had made a more compelling, overarching story that still tied in with the smaller scenes (think Heavy Rain, as an example), I would have enjoyed it more. Or maybe if they'd gone L.A. Golden Age, like Detective stories in the Agatha Christie universe...Everyone's a critic I suppose. :)

The problem is that the game mechanics are broken. If you have a one-shot fail system and selecting a conversation option totally fires into the other direction than makes sense in such a situation is not only frustrating but just down out a game/immersion breaker. Hell even Phoenix Wright had less unpredictable and illogical conversation turns and there they did it on purpose to add comical moments :/ ... besides... flamethrower mission? Who had *that* fucked up idea to begin with.

I love Phoenix Wright. Such a fun game. It was very touchy and frustrating in some parts (the English version suffers from a lot of things lost in translation), but overall it was great. I'm just kind of bummed about it's replay value...which is low. Ah the flamethrower mission. It was so bad a good friend of mine just stopped playing at that point, despite it being the last part of the game. Yeah, that idea was not the best; should have just used a normal gun like, oh, I don't know...the rest of the game?

That's right. Played all of the PW games including the latest ones not featuring PW itself and they all count to my list of detective games one should not miss out. The English versions had some ugly logic holes and illogical solutions here and there but I assume this is only a translation problem as in general it all works out. With the last installement in the series I could only find 1 or maybe 2 logic holes in the entire game and that's something most AAA games can only dream off to begin with. Replay value indeed there is none. But if you are looking for replay value in detective stories you are in the wrong movie anyways since once you know the story you simply know it. That's though nothing I hold against this genre since it is an inherent property of this kind of games you can't just change like that.

Transformers: War for Cybertron. At first it seems interesting, but then the questionable writing, tedious boss fights, repetitive environments, overly powered/under powered enemies, lack of ammo, Resistance 1 style health system, and similar things just make it a frustrating experience. And the final boss fight is one of the cheapest attempts to legitimize the transforming mechanic that I've ever seen...

The two games i regret buying for full price:
Diablo 3 - mediocre and uninspired from graphics to gameplay. Everything that D3 does, has been done better before. (was fooled by the DIABLO name into buying it)
Dishonored- Lazy developed game with small arenas cleverly disguised as "free-roaming" levels, lack of graphic diversity, no music score. (was fooled by the Bethesda brand that mostly published A++ titles before)

Im not saying they are bad games, its just that they are not nearly as good as the reviews tried to make them, so i regret paying full price for them.

For me it would have to be AC3, the campaign was rushed it wasn't as good as ACR or ACB plus they kill of Desmond witch is a shame and on top of that you play as a Templar at the start of the game and Conner gets a Mohawk mullet later in the game also Conner hardly wears the hood when you get thither into the game (I actually sat there and yelled at him to put the hood back on because come on no one wants to see that mullet >:o), the only decent thing in game was probably the boat missions they were fun but other than those missions the game was pretty disappointing ~ I just want Ezio back. R.I.P

EDIT: Oh, Another thing that was weird was they combined Altair & Ezio together to make Conner so Ezio = Intelligence + Altair = Strength thus making Conner "The Super Assassin" is how they won the war that was going on in the first place, A Super Assassin. Well that's what i think anyway it's a nice theory 8)

EDIT: I'm just going to say tho that XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Was . . . Amazing !!!!
