#5 Mass Effect Andromeda
With the recent release of the Mass Effect Andromeda, there have been a lot of talk going around of how bad some of the glitches and this was even before the game was officially released. Now considering that this was suppose to be one of the big name game releases this year, it is disappointing that the game has so many issues. Lots like the Mass Effect team has a lot to fix with this first update from the lack of romance options to weird/goofy animations and other options like customizing characters. The Mass Effect team should take a look of No Man’s Sky and learn from them before it gets too out of hand
#4 No Man’s Sky
Mostly everyone by now has heard of the terrible start to No Man’s Sky. The PR team had put a lot of time into trying to hype this game up only for it to have a bad start. I’m one of the people who had bought the game at launch due to the PR that went into it and they had made it look cool. I admit, I had played it for a few hours but only after then I realized hey what is so special about this game and its not as cool as they made it look. So I hadn’t touched it since the launch of it. To me, this game just lacked the things to keep me interested in the game and it didn’t look like what they had shown in the previews. Now in the last month or so, the game developers came up with an update for the game that came with a whole bunch of new stuff for the game. I have heard a lot of good things about this update but have yet to check it out for myself. Hopefully, the team has learned a lot from the start up and added some stuff to the game to make it better.
#3 Assassin’s Creed Unity
Though I am an Assassin’s Creed fan, I do have to say that Unity has to be on the list. I had gotten the game about 6 months after it came out. Anyways with Unity, from what I have heard in the AC community there had been some major bugs and issues with the game. It was so bad that Ubisoft had given Unity players the DLC Dead Kings for free as compensation for the bugs that came out in launch. For the most part, a lot of AC fans don’t really care for Unity just due to the issues that it had at launch. I, however, find that Unity is a great game. Its up there for me after The Ezio Collection and Syndicate (they are tied). Anyways it did have a crappy launch and Ubisoft did a good job in fixing the issues and even giving the fans the Dead Kings DLC for free.
#2 Street Fighter V
This is another game that I had came late to, like last month late. Anyways, Street Fighter V had a disappointing start. I had a co-worker who had bought the game at launch and from what I heard, the game wasn’t complete and it only had a few characters. Plus it was like they released a bit of the game at a time and a year after release, it was like finally complete or what it should have been at launch. The more that I had looked into it, it had seemed like others were saying the same thing about the game. It wasn’t complete and people had to buy characters and other things in order to advance and other issues with the game. So far just by playing it for a few hours, it seems like they did the best and fixed the issues that had came out on launch day.
#1 Star Fox Zero
Now this is a game that I chose due to my overall experience with it. Earlier this month I had gotten a Wii U and Star Fox Zero was one of the games that I had gotten with it. One reason why I had gotten it was because I had played the Star Fox game that was on N64 and I guess feeling nostalgic, I had gotten Zero. Anyways, this game reminds me too much of that N64 Star Fox game with the graphics and the controllers. To me, it just reminds me too much of the N64 version though Star Fox Zero is suppose to be for the Wii U. Its just too disappointing for me. Though I didn’t get it at launch and getting it quite a bit of time after its release, makes me feel really disappointed especially since they could have done some kind of updates for it to make it look more like a Wii U game instead of N64 game (graphics wise).
