My biggest video game letdown is when the started screwing up with the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series. I was always a HUGE fan of the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series and especially the Tony Hawk's Underground series. I liked Tony Hawk's American Wasteland too, but after that they get awful. The new stuff they tried to add in Tony Hawk's Project 8 and Tony Hawk's Proving Ground was awful, and to me both games were unplayable. Now they have Tony Hawk Ride out, which to me just feels like an insult. I want that old school arcade style gameplay where I can get millions of points in one combo with enough practice and time.

The biggest video game let down was probably the halo series. People are so hyped about it, but when i play it myself i didnt think it was anything special.

My biggest letdown was Drawn to Life's ending. Actually both games.
The first: There are all these collectibles and incentives to return to levels and get everything. Then, you beat it... you turn it back on... and yes, it autosaved--between beating the final level and finishing the last fetch-quest to launch the end credits
The second game: I go to great lengths to get 100%, grab everything in every level, color in everything... and I don't get a single bit of acknowledgement, forcing me to return to every level to check if I got it all. I sure did... nope, still nothing .

The fact that Dead Space looks like an attempt at trying to be as good at horror as Silent Hill kinda is my biggest let down. Just do your own thing, horror games!

My biggest let down was that I caught alot of pokemon on soulsilver then I evolved my Eevee into an Espeon,I wanted to take it out on a stroll in the pokewalker. Normallly I would save,Switch off then on again and go on the pokewalker option but this time I saved,Switched off then on again and it said "The save file will be erased due to corruption or damage . I had to start all over again and i'm still trying to complete it.

Biggest videogame letdown. Mario and Luigi Bowsers inside story. I 100% the entire game and go and beat the final boss... i get the kingdom is saved and the credits roll.... afterwards NOTHING. It just goes back to the title screen and to my save right before the boss battle. I felt gipped

brownbowser : MySims Party. I was expecting a good game like it's predesscesors, but this game was horrible. Another MySims letdown was the cancellation of MySims Agents 2. And Mario Party 8. I hated that.

Mine has to be Sonic and The Secret Rings. I did not expect a great game but it was not a sonic game at all. I really did not like it one bit. I hope that the new sonic games are better.

A little while ago, I bought The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning for my PS2 at Game Stop for, like, $10. I've beaten the original Spyro trilogy for PS1 more times than I care to count and I was HOPING that I'd be amazed again.

Boy, was I wrong. =|

I just found it really boring and David Spade's voice started to wear on my nerves after awhile. Most random celebrity cameo ever, I swear. I missed it when Sparx never talked. >.<  Bleh.

I've never tried playing it again. =| Sure, Spyro being able to do something other than breathe fire and charge is cool, but the storyline just bored me.

The most disappointing game for me was Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz. I was expecting a fun game that had great levels like the rest of the series. But instead, I found a game loaded with useless "party" games and a lack of creativity on the side of the main ball-rolling game. It played nothing like Super Monkey Ball 1 and 2. Since then, I've been greatly disappointed with the games that have followed.

My biggest letdown is a game that aint even out yet,star wars knights 3.it was a great series and the adverts looked sweet.then i find out its a mmorpg,and nothing like the adverts.this isnt star wars knights!they shouldnt have named it that.
Then lucasarts were faced with loads of fans saying this and they essential said "too damn bad, its our game so our choice,if you dont like it dont buy it"
And now i hate them.

Star Wars Masters of Teras Kai. Star Wars fighting game... Sweet! Vader vs Fett, Solo Vs Luke...Sweet! Right?? Wrong!!!  Worst fighting game ever. And that was what I had asked my GF for as my birthday present.  Should've asked for socks.

I put the first disc of Lunar 2 in my PS3 yesterday. It stuck to the PS1 logo... I bought that game yesterday, too. >_> I'm waiting to get it fixed. I still am mad at it for not being a good disc, and working.

My biggest game let down would be Call of Duty Black Ops. I mean really, it was out for one day and they already had problems with the online multiplayer big head shaker there. That and there is so many things wrong with it that its not even fun to play any more. The other let down is waiting for Ghost Recon: Future Solider to come out. This game has been pushed back four times now. Last I hear was that it was coming out this October. Now I hear the beta for that game isn't coming out until January....WTF really??? Get ready for a major disappointment because I have a feeling the wait isn't worth it.
