There have been so many games in the industry that were overhyped. In the end they went on to become such huge flops that their names will never been forgotten just due to the fact that these were a combination of both commercial and critical failures.
Today we take a look at 10 such PS3 and X360 Games That Flopped Miserably.

LAIR

Touted as the flagship title for the much hyped Six Axis controller, LAIR was a technical disaster. Even though Lair had amazing visuals and thee backing up of a fame developer in Factor 5, the game was a commercial and a critical failure. The controls were at a total loss and the game implemented a very poor motion sensing scheme. A guide was released later which helped the players understand the controls but that did not end LAIR’s woes.

Too Human

Too Human is often listed as one of the most expensive games ever made, not due to the fact that game was being polished over the years, but it was languishing in development hell for a long time, not to mention the several disputes. In the end we got a mediocre product which had sheer annoying game play mechanics. The combat system was broken and the camera was terrible.

Lost Planet 2

I had high expectations from Capcom’s sequel to one of the most underrated shooters of 2007, but just like any other game in the list, this game turned out to be totally disappointing. The game had serious issues in level design and the AI was broken. I know there were mix reactions to the game but according to me the game under performed in terms of is story structure and play mechanics. It was the age old shooting game just with pretty painting.

  • S.M

    why isnt Diablo 3 up there?

    • Shubhankar Parijat

      Because it didn’t flop.

    • Mike

      Yes, it flopped.

    • shadowhawk

      It was a terrible game.

  • Julez

    Maybe it is the fact this this artical is dated 16th, Jan. 2011.

    And yes diablo 3 did flop… for the players that is. Of course blizzard made records and sold millions that is only because of the hype and the love of Diablo 2, Diablo 3 is a piece of crap (sure worth messing around in with friends) but all around not what blizzard promised and now they are just spiting in the customers faces and blizzard will pay for it in the long run.

    • torcedor

      diablo 1 and 2 were my favourate games, I was so looking forward to diablo 3 but I am keeping away from it till and if they fix it

  • Bailey

    If this gets updated.. Diablo 3 should be the number one flop of all time 🙂

  • ResidentialEvil

    Some of these games I agree with, but overall a badly written article. Way too amatuer.

  • smapdi

    why the heck isnt RAGE on here?!??
    great potential but fell flat on its face- linear, rushed to beat borderlands. could have been amaizng

  • Pat

    D3 = Biggest flop of gaming… ever.

  • Anon

    Hell Gate London should be there

  • The new Duke Nukem should have been on this list.

  • Mike

    Killzone for ps2 was my third favorite FPS next time TS2 and 3.

  • wr

    Lol @All Points Bullitin (APB) He Said :But the question is who will play this?. in 2011.
    well Don’t you know how much people play this game now

  • DUKE NUKEM FOREVER should be number 1 on this list. That piece of shit was the most hyped sequel since the return of JESUS CHRIST. If not for the fact it sold 370,000 units (not including downloads) in the first month – thus making it profitable – it would be the king of the gaming hall of shame. HOW DID THEY FCK THAT GAME UP?

  • shadowhawk

    You forgot to say the worst game in history. WoW

  • Marz

    I’m really surprised no one has mentioned Sonic ’06 yet.

  • ryan

    fable 3?
