Top 5 WORST games of 2010

Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows Part 1

Not so surprising, the movie review of Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows Part 1 gave an indication that something is wrong with ‘The Boy who lived’ this time. Dark is good for movies and books but for game dark is only appropriate if the game has zombies or monsters.

According to the book, there were only death eaters who could have been shown as monster, though the game has some good special effects but the storyline is smudged.
Harry looks like a stupid brat who is deeply enraged to kill Lord Voldemort, Oops! I just said it. Okay, ‘YOU KNOW WHO’, that he keeps on burping out Avara Kadavra every other moment. The game had a bestseller book story to portray but the developers failed to make something out of a brilliant story, which was the exact case with the movie director, David Yates.
The game Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 1 is also available on Microsoft Xbox Kinect which suggest that you can run and use spells too, try it there maybe you would lose some calories instead of losing your mind.
Fighters Uncaged

Fighters Uncaged is one of the biggest fails in the world of gaming, many video gaming geeks may fall off Mount Olympus after playing this game from Ubisoft. It is so surprising that the publishing house that has treated gamers with Prince of Persia have come up with such a disaster.

This strategy game doesn’t fit truly in any genre, it is no RPG, it is no Action game, and it is definitely not an adventure game. What is it? Who knows?
The storyline is plain, the gameplay lame and the character have no power. It feels like you are playing a game of 1950s when there were no games at all.
Iron man 2
Iron Man 2 Video game has seriously made everyone cry their hearts out, not because there is something emotional in the gameplay but the characters look like poor, old homage zombies, who want to suck your blood.

I have no sympathy with the game at all, I assure you that you won’t be able to complete this game and file a case in consumer court for refund that is how bad it is.
The game has one thing that stands above everything else, its actions, like the movie the game also shows some brilliant special effects. Lasers and Whiplash fight scene is brilliant in Iron Man 2 game as well.
Final Fantasy: XIV (14)
With the net getting stuffed with free and paid MMORPGs this one comes up as a disappointed as both RPG and MMORPG. World of Warcraft guys must be ashamed of coming up with such a disastrous multiplayer game.
First of all, every part of the gameplay looks unfinished, it seems as if they have hurriedly coded the whole thing up, check if it was working and then launched. I don’t know what went wrong, there are thousands of beta game testers in the world who would have turned it down at first play and saved thousands from playing this medieval graphic game.
RPGs like Age of Empires II have no alternative, they were the best and will remain in top positions, despite horrendous graphics, and they had solid gameplay and storyline at least. Final Fantasy XIV Online deserves to get place here.

And number one....
Quantum Theory

Quantum Theory is probably the least desired game of 2010; those who would have spent money to buy this one must be cursing themselves heavily. It was priced near to God of War: Ghost of Sparta but was a mile away from it metaphorically.
It has one of the most awful designs and game play one can make, the characters are designed as if they are from a different world. After the huge success of Halo everyone is trying to make as weird characters as they can.

On a side note everybody, this is based on opinion, not fact. If you like one of the games in this list thats fine.

The Razer Switchblade..

Just thought I would leave this here.. I am sure you guys would love to see it. It says everything in the video but it is a computer smaller than a laptop, built for gaming.. How does this work? While the screen is small thats about the only thing wrong for gaming. features

Can run higher end games smoothly
Touch screen moniter
a keyboard, that changes its keys depending on what game you are playing.
The size makes it portable

Take a look at the actual video and watch it in action!

Red Dead: Redemption review

Okay I know the game is old but I will be posting why I decided to make a review of it at the end of this post, anyways this is my review of RD:R.

Graphics: 9/10
The Graphics are beautiful, the scenery is amazing. From setting suns to stormy nights, the game never ceases to amaze. The horses and character animations flow well, characters respond to being shot in different ways every time, proving some very nice animation here. One highlight on a graphics standpoint is the lip syncing in cut scenes. It looks like the characters are really saying their lines, and it is nice to see it pulled off so well. A few visual hiccups/glitches bring the graphics down to a 9/10.

Sound/Music: 10/10
The sound is amazing. Period. The voice acting is all superb, and the dynamic soundtrack definitely fits the game. A couple particular pieces stand out, when completing missions that have a significant importance in John Marston's life, a song will play with a vocal track. That's not done much in a video game, and for good reason, but it really works in this instance. The perfect sound and music in this game earns 10/10

Gameplay: 10/10
From the dead eye shooting mechanic to the control of your trusty steed, the gameplay never disappoints. There is a sharp learning curve for the control of horses, but when you get used to it, it's a blast to just ride! The variation in weaponry is nice, and each gun has a distinctive feel. The endless amounts of bounty missions, random encounters, and minigames is enough to entertain anyone. Gameplay merits 10/10

Replayability: 10/10
HIGH. As mentioned above the game sports and endless amount of things to entertain you, and the ability to play with your honor to gauge character reactions is a big part of this. The game doesn't get bland after beating the story, and chances are you'll want to do the rest of the stranger missions after you beat the game. Replayability establishes a rock solid 10/10

Story: 9/10
The game starts out with John Marston on the trail of his former gang. It progresses from New Austin, a very western feeling portion of the map, in which the greatest reaches of technology have yet to reach in 1911. Marston must eventually venture into Nuevo Paraiso, a deadly border region of Mexico during it's revolution. Finally Marston makes his way to West Elizabeth, an area where you can truly feel the modern world encroaching on and destroying the ways of the West. The only problem I had with it
INDIRECT SPOILER was the twist at the ending, while it was good, and definably not forgotten easily, you will see if you play this game.. why the story is as popular as it isStory receives a 9/10


Overall: The game's mechanics, graphics, and gameplay are all superb. The game sports an interesting story as well as a big chunk of things to do, and HUGE map. Players will likely have fun with this one for a long time, so it gets 9/10 from me.
