The Xbox 360 Games That Every Gamer Should Avoid at All Costs

E-mail Print PDF

Xbox 360One of our biggest gripes, actually one of the biggest complaints throughout the industry right now, is that the level of quality in games has been suffering lately. Sure there are some great titles that get the perfect amount of polish and love to ensure every drop of potential is squeezed out of the title. But there are those games that hit retail with undeservingly high price tags. Every gamer has at one point or another asked themselves, “Am I being unfair to this game? I couldn’t write all this code and build an engine to render those visuals.” Most gamers quickly realize that doesn’t matter because you don’t eat a bad burger just because you never worked at McDonalds. Since every console has some stinkers, we focused on the Xbox 360 and the worst games to hit that platform. Besides reading about these games, try and avoid them.

Raven Squad

This game is more confused about what it wants to be than anything else. Developer Atomic Motion was surely excited to bring something new to gaming when they started on this title, but ended up delivering one of the worst games to hit the Xbox 360. The biggest feature is the ability to control two squads from a satellite view which can turn the cookie cutter shooter into a simplified RTS. The worst feature of the game is everything else!

Raven Squad Blows on Xbox 360

Deadly Premonition

Who doesn’t like a good mystery? Deadly Premonition offered one of the best mysteries of this generation and did it exclusively on the Xbox 360. What was the mystery you ask? Well of course it was how in the hell this game was ever made. The graphics were almost beyond last-gen. At times the game looks like PSone game running on a PS2 with smoothing turned on. Add in the horrible voice-acting and you have a murder mystery that went unsolved because no one could stomach buying the game.

Deadly Premonition is a trainwreck

was actually pretty cool. I think you are wrong about that one. But I agree with all the other ones.

Nah just stay away from the 360 all together. PS3 is way better. The ONLY good game the 360 has is Gears of War and Uncharted is better.

Deadly Premonition is one of my choices for GOTY!!! Also, while the camera angle sucked... Operation Darkness was pretty cool (as long as you like that genre)!

If they listed every bad 360 game, they'd list them all!

I've played Onechanbara on Wii and PlayStation 2. Both versions were garbage, why would the Xbox 360 version not suck?

Quoting FartPants:

You mean a game being ported to a technically superior console?
Hmm real tough question.

FartPants, at least you gave the game a try prior.
You didn't enjoy the gameplay and that's fine.

The problem is that typically people don't give this title a chance. They merely look at big review sites and say "well they must be right." The game is by no means perfect, but you need to really dissect it. Simply declaring it awful and hopeless within seconds is a pathetic declaration.
