Overall Crackdown 2 was too much like its predecessor. The Co-op was only online; while competitive modes aren’t so great. Lacking a good soundtrack the same song is played over and over again at different tempos. Crackdown 2 suffered multiple major setbacks with much of the same game play as of the original. This game simply should not have existed.

Controversy is another name for APB. The game was bombarded with bad reviews overall, but there was more to follow. Just a few months after the game’s launch Realtime Worlds announced that the servers will shut down soon which was then followed by K2 purchasing APB. The game will be launched again for free sometime in 2011. But the question is who will play this?
There was a ton of hype behind Haze and it turned out to be total disaster. The legion of PlayStation 3 fans claimed this will be the next “Halo Killer” after the horrible outing of the original Killzone on the PlayStation 2, but much to their misfortune the game suffered from a terrible story line and artificial intelligence. Not only that, the game also had bland game play and graphics and a really bad lead in Shane Carpenter.
I think Nier had loads of potential but it really was wasted by a lot of shenanigans. Its way longer than it needs to be and there are loads of features that should never have been put in. I think the focus of the game should have been on the visuals and the story being a little more in depth. If they could go back and remake this game with less crap in it and a lot more story development than it might be a successful title.
