Alright, I just got an assignment in Journalism and I decided to write reviews on three or four of the most crappy video games on the Playstation.

So, what games are just AWFUL? The crappier the game, the better. I'm not just looking for bad plot/story. If there's glitches galore, bad controls, or just a bad concept, or more, then THAT'S the game I want.

Just look for the Acclaim logo.

As for why, Acclaim is absolutely _infamous_ for spending more money to acquire the rights to a licensed property than they do on actually creating a decent game based on said licensed property.

Unlimited SaGa. The most worthless and sorry excuse for an RPG I have ever seen.

Big Rig Racing, or whatever the hell that crapfest was called. Commercials could regularly be seen during WWE TV time.

Any Tomb Raider after 3.

Most licensed kiddie products (Toy Story, Yu-Gi-Oh, etc.)

Space Race (I think it was called that...the one IGN gave a 1 or 2 to a few years back).

You could do a search through Gamespot's website for their lowest rated games. A game based on the Hooter's license comes to mind...

Everblue 2. It's a first-person scuba diving RPG. In Everblue 2's favor, it's the only one of its kind, but that doesn't mean it's, you know, good. It wouldn't have been too hard to make the game interesting; sharks attacking, or having to worry about air consumption, or wrecks collapsing while you're in them. Instead you swim around suspiciously clean ships picking up jewelry for the jackasses in town. Reviews have endorsed its 'sense of immersion,' but speaking as a diver I highly recommend you just go out snorkeling in the nearest body of salt water. It'll be much more interesting and you won't have to listen to crappy background music whil you're out there.

You've never played either one, have you? The DDR games are totally different from Britney's Dance Beat. In Britney's Dance Beat you watch a cursor go around a circle and hit buttons when the cursor appears over an indicator. In DDR you actually need a modicum of rhythm and reaction speed to step to the beat. The most important difference between them, though, is that DDR doesn't suck.

There was a game a few years ago for the PSOne, Blasto. It was a superhero game, and the voice was Phil Hartman. Game magazines devoted endless amounts of column space and covers to the game. I'm not sure if anyone actually played an early build of the game, because most of the articles read like this:

"We haven't played this game, but we've seen video, and it's got PHIL HARTMAN!"

It was delayed numerous times, yet everytime the magazines said "Just wait, they need the time to make the game better! PHIL HARTMAN!" Needless to say, the game came out, and it BLEW. Flat graphics, shoddy gameplay, crappy storyline, buggy-you name it, it was in there. I remember Next Generation (who was one of the worst offenders, I recall) actually offering an apology for all the press they gave the game when they gave their review.

To this day, it remains the only game that I've ever taken back to the store and DEMANDED a refund. Just horrible.

I believe that you are talking about Big Mutha Truckers, and yes I'm sure there was a reason why it came out at 20 dollars.

I haven't played it, but I heard that the MIB II game was sheer torture. Perhaps less in the glitches than just boring gameplay with bad collision detection, invisible walls, and over repitition.

I think one of the earlier Dragon Ball Z games sucked pretty bad; I think, as you can tell, is that to make a quick buck, publishers rush games out way too soon.

Review the games, but if there's any way to get a back story on the production of the game, I think that'd help you out.

I'll second anything that has an Acclaim license, along with most games that are also from Movie licenses, Bond and a few others being the exception.

Ephemeral Fantasia was way down there as far as RPGs are concerned. And don't overlook Celebrity Deathmatch.

...I won't say anything else...but I own it (I was young and stupid when I bought it). And yes, I plan on reviewing that one for sure.

Five words: Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub Zero. Got it on the cheap about a year ago... then played the game and found out why. Impossible jumps, unsurvivable falls, and limited Sub Zero abilities that need to be unlocked.

While overall it may not be a bad game, the cheap, cheating, infallible, inhuman AI for single player in Mortal Kombat Trilogy makes that game utterly unplayable in single player mode, even on the "easiest" (bwahahahahahahahahahahaha) difficulty.

Also, I've never played it, but I'm told that Resident Evil: Survivor is the drizzling shits.

Yeah, I've played it and it is definately everything you said it was. Which sucks, because it COULD have been a cool game.... well, it was a good idea at least. Fighting games so rarely come with any kind of explorable backstory, and branching off like that could have been very cool.

Anyway, another horrendously shitty game: Simpson's Skateboarding.
Just a terrible shot in the dark to try and shamelessly capitalize on two fads. Absolutely no thought whatsoever possibly went into making it.

I OWN Salt Lake 2002 for the PS2 which, last I checked, was the lowest rated game by IGN for the PS2. I got it simply because I went to the Olympics that year for the first time and I was itchin' for more action when I got back.

I cannot begin to relate how badly this game blows. I was remembering back to the days of the EPYX Games for my Apple IIe. The EPYX games make Salt Lake 2002 look like Tic-Tac-Toe. There are only 6 events, the controls blow, are unresponsive, and my guy seems to jump for joy even after he gets squashed in an event.

Oh, and I also happen to own MK Myths: Sub Zero as well. But my wife bought it for me... for FULL PRICE THE WEEK IT CAME OUT. The others in this thread are right - it blows. Though my wife seemed to always get a chuckle when I'd die from some random malady (losing a fight, falling off a ledge, getting flattened by a pillar...the usual).

Similarly, Simpsons Wrestling for the PS1 was just awful. They pumped crappy Simpsons video games out in the 90s almost as fast as they pumped out "Underachiever and proud of it" T-shirts.
