I was reminded of the first because it's sequel was reviewed today.
Darksiders: Everybody seems to love this. I tried this twice. I abandoned it the first time and then later when tried it again since everybody seems to think it's the k9's testicular region, but no. Love the world, love the concept, love the artwork most of all, but the game? Dull, dull, and dull. The same boring grindy samey simple hack and slash template over and over and over and over. It's not that I have anything against hack and slash. God of War is fantastic and done right it's a exciting thrill ride, but the combat in this is just dull. Oh and the story is also pants. I gave up after the game locked me in a "room" again and charged me with killing x amount of baddies for the millionth time. It was stop playing of slit my wrists.
GRID: yes, I know EVERY BODY and I do mean EVERYBODY loves it but again I just don't get it. The cars seem to float about the road, have no weight to them, and worst of all they seem to turn by pivoting in the centre!!! Also the "in your face" attitude of the game is sodding annoying. Can we please have a racing game that's not all about DUDE! THIS IS EXTREEEEEEM RACING!! WOW YOU ACED THIS LAP DUDE! And yes I am looking at you Dirt as the worst offender.
So what games do you not get that everybody seems to love? Get it off your chest, it will make you feel better
