Worst Games Of 2015

While there were some great games in 2015, there were also a bunch that weren’t so great.

And then there was the following bunch of crap that I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy, even if they stepped on my foot and didn’t say “Sorry.”

Here now, in no particular order, are the worst games of 2015.

 

The Order 1886 02

The Order: 1886

Developers: Ready At Dawn

Publisher: Sony

Systems: PlayStation 4

While much was made about this game’s length, or lack there of, the real issue was how it wasted that time with dated mechanics and way too many cutscenes. But my biggest problem with The Order: 1886 was that it took a cool idea — a Gears Of War-style shooter set in a proto-steampunk London — and squandered it.

SCORE: 4.0/10 (read my full review here)

 

Helldivers 03

Helldivers

Developers: Arrowhead Game Studios

Publisher: Sony

Systems: PlayStation 4PlayStation 3Vita

What should’ve been a fun and frantic arcadey, top-down, sci-fi shooter was instead a frustrating slog thanks to a lot of little problems that included, but were not limited to, pointless mechanics (I mean, seriously, what kind of a trained soldier doesn’t know to reload their weapon), bad graphical choices, and a wildly inconsistent difficulty.

SCORE: 3.5/10 (read my full review here)

 

Godzilla 01

Godzilla

Developers: Natsume

Publisher: Bandai Namco

Systems: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3

Caught somewhere between low-budget and low-rent, this game is not only overly simplistic and repetitive, but it also has counter-intuitive movement that makes this more frustrating than fun.

SCORE: 6.5/10 (read my full review here)

 

Resident Evil 01

Resident Evil (HD remake)

Developers: Capcom

Publisher: Capcom

Systems: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC

This game isn’t so much bad as it is a waste of your money. I would’ve loved a new version of this classic 1996 game with upgraded graphics and better controls. I can even understand why someone would want a faithful recreation of the original game with the original controls and the original graphics. But what we got instead was the 2002 remake of the game that Capcom put out on the GameCube, but with that game’s awkward controls and the original graphics in HD. And why would I want that? Oh, right, I don’t.

SCORE: 3.0/10 (read my full review here)

 

Onechanbara Z2 Chaos 02

Onechanbara Z2 Chaos

Developers: Tamsoft

Publisher: Bandai Namco

Systems: PlayStation 4

While it would be easy to condemn this game for being overtly sexual but not all that sexy, it actually has bigger problems than just being potentially offensive. It’s terribly redundant, which makes it rather tiresome after a while, and I say that as someone who really likes hack & slash games you can just button mash to victory.

SCORE: 6.5/10 (read my full review here)

 

Afro Samurai 2 Revenge Of Kuma Volume 1 02

Afro Samurai 2: Revenge Of Kuma: Volume 1

Developers: Redacted Software

Publisher: Versus Evil

Systems: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC

As someone who liked, but still saw the flaws in, the original Afro Samurai game, I was encouraged when the people behind this sequel said they weren’t happy with the original either, and we’re striving to make something better. Which makes it even more sad that they failed. Miserably. Not only was it a bad game, but it was so flawed and buggy that the publisher gave everyone refunds and cancelled the other two volumes.

SCORE: 2.0/10 (read my full review here)
