On the whole, Xbox has covered itself in glory since its inception but there have been a number of games developers who certainly haven’t and have released some shocking games over the years.
We have seen plenty of fantastic creations for all types of gamers over the years though, whether its the iconic Halo, the likes of FIFA and other sports games from that category, even casino slot games like those available online at the best Blueprint casino provider, alongside other classic creations like Red Dead Redemption, Grand Theft Auto and The Witcher, to name just a few.
Let’s be honest, though, there have been a number of shockingly bad releases over the years too, as we touched on above. With that in mind, we thought we’d go through some of the worst games to come out on Xbox and put them to bed once and for all.
Drake of the 99 Dragons
When it came out, Drake of the 99 Dragons was deemed to be one of the worst games ever made and it’s entirely understandable as to why. The reviews were horrific which has subsequently meant this game is widely joked about amongst the Xbox community. With its uninspired graphics, painfully horrendous acting, bafflingly bad controls, and quite possibly the worst targeting ever seen in a third person shooter, Drake of the 99 Dragons is a game anyone who played it will be desperate to erase from their minds.
Batman: Dark Tomorrow
Everyone tends to enjoy a bit of Batman – be it in a cartoon or in the cinema – but everyone certainly hates Batman: Dark Tomorrow. Despite its decent enough voice acting and a fairly compelling story, the horrendous controls really let down this game. Throw in the badly executed gameplay, shoddy camera and blurry graphics and you have one hell of a disaster.
Fight Club is a damn good movie, but the game certainly doesn’t match it. It has the brutality and gore of the classic film but the graphics are terrible, the gameplay is ridiculously easy and the overall lame attempt to tie it in with the movie failed spectacularly. Definitely one to avoid. Forever.
Shrek Super Party
Shrek Super Party certainly won’t make any anticipated games of the year lists, in fact, it’s making this one instead and anyone who has played it will fully understand why. In a desperate attempt to cash in on Nintendo’s Mario Party phenomenon, Shrek Super Party involves you playing with a number of characters from the movie and completing some rather forgetful mini-games. All this comes with blurry graphics, idiotic controls and a really bad concept all round.
Aquaman: Battle for Atlantis
Known for clogging up the bargain bins, Aquaman: Battle for Atlantis had virtually no positives whatsoever, other than that the front cover tempted you in with the myth and the legend that is Aquaman, but you were then left completely deflated once you played the game and realised it had absolutely nothing to do with Aquaman! If Xbox games ever replace firewood, Aquaman: Battle for Atlantis will be in high demand.
Bruce Lee: Quest of the Dragon
Perhaps understandably, this game got a lot of hype and attention when its release was announced (Bruce Lee’s pretty damn cool, right?) but the game was met with moans and groans as soon as it was released. The fighting engine was scarily bad and would have angered the martial arts master himself, especially alongside the shocking graphics and stupid sounds too. Bruce Lee: Quest of the Dragon is without a doubt a worthy addition to this list.
