Most Disappointing Game of 2015

Not every game released in 2015 was a winner.

Posted By | On 29th, Dec. 2015 Under Feature


Not every game released in a given year can be a winner. Some games are built on a mountain of hype, praised to the high heavens before they’re even released only to come crashing down in spectacular fashion. Is a game disappointing because it didn’t live up to our lofty standards or simply because it couldn’t deliver on its own hype? Does one feel a sense of disappointment for what could have been, especially in light of what was promised through all those beautiful trailers? Or is the product you’ve purchased with your hard-earned money simply nothing all that great despite all the greatness it promised to offer? It’s tough to say – you can only real feel disappointed if you had expectations though. And for those who felt disappointed even when expecting nothing, we present our nominees for the most disappointing game of 2015.

Nominees:

  • Star Wars Battlefront
  • Battlefield Hardline
  • The Order: 1886
  • Code Name STEAM
  • Need for Speed
  • Mad Max

Winner: The Order 1886

the order 1886 ps4

We know what you’re thinking. “Star Wars Battlefront is way more disappointing since it didn’t live up to the brilliance of Pandemic’s past games!” And we understand much more than we’d care to admit. However, Ready at Dawn’s The Order: 1886 wasn’t meant to just be a reboot to a long-standing franchise. It  was supposed to be a pillar on which Sony could build its PS4 dynasty. First revealed at E3 2013, The Order: 1886 was actually in development since 2010 and was meant to release in 2014. It was subsequently delayed to February 2015 but that didn’t help matters all that much.

For a game that looked like it would be the next big cinematic third person shooter, it was shocking to see The Order: 1886 rely so much on QTEs and cinematic sequences. The story held potential but wasn’t the monster-killing spree we expected and it ended on a cliff-hanger. Did we mention you could finish the game in a few hours with literally no reason to go back? The other nominees at least found acceptance with some players, regardless of their quality. Not even the most ardent PS4 fan could defend the disaster that was The Order: 1886.

  • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

    We have agreed it Should win the award for the most defended and praised downgrade. salty 1886 of epic fail

  • Hunter

    The Order 1886 is amazing. The true CGI quality. A Good new IP

    Also The Order 1886 has outsold forza 6+Rise of the tomb raider COMBINED

    • Shahrukh Alam

      True CGI quality doesnt make a good game. Game play does. It sold because it was marketed the right way and it is a new IP. Critically Order 1886 sucked every where due to less then 4 hours campaing and unneccessary showcasing of PS4 power rather then pleasing the gamers.

    • Truth™

      The Odor is also 3 and a half hours of cutscenes, downgrades and no game 🙂

  • Orko

    We must have played a different game then, I thought The Order: 1886 was quite fantastic. B:Hardline and new Need for Speed were much more disappointing imho.

  • JasonMichaelX

    Halo 5 = Horrible Single Player Campaign & No Couch Co-Op on a game series that revolutionized Couch Co-Op.
    Halo 5 is easily the Most Disappointing Game of 2015 & Halo 5 is a far bigger disappointment than any of the games listed above.
    343 has destroyed one of the greatest game series of the last 2 Generations.

    • Shahrukh Alam

      agreed!

  • JustAnotherGamerGirl

    Without a doubt, Halo 5 and Battlefront for the tie – Order 1886 looks like a masterpiece when compared to those two.

    • Truth™

      kek

  • Rafoca

    Give any Sony Fanboy any kind of bad game and, as long as its exclusive, they will praise it. It’s always like that’s.

    It’s sad, really, cause that encourages companies to make half baked games and still sell like crazy
