EZ Snappin: Huge step forward from 2010 that still has some issues but I’m playing at least one game a day.

Jim: 2008 was absolute bullshit and the online play on the 360 was a laggy nightmare. I bought it and played it for about five hours then threw it in a drawer and went back to PES ’06.

Roberto Spiralli: The current PES is some bullshit; it’s simply stopped being fun. There was a logic to the previous versions, from PES3 onwards, that was compromised in PES6 and killed off in 2008. Supposedly 2009 is a back to the drawing board affair, which they say about FIFA every year and which to date hasn’t stopped that franchise disappearing down the shitter. PES 2009 will be 50/50 chance of rebirth or death. Meanwhile, all I want is a decent footie game to play.

Jeff LeVine: I’m skeptical that PES 2009 is going to be significantly different from 2008 or 2007. I only played 2008 on the Wii and it was fun but a little too shallow.

Coint & Plick 2009 Most Disappointing Game, 3rd Place

Posted in 2009, Most Disappointing Games of the Year by trdn89 on February 15, 2010



Roberto Spiralli – PES 10 was a terrible, terrible piece of shit. FIFA 2010 is also quite bad but got C+P points from me on account of at least being playable.

Sondrangerbot – I really wanted this to be the FIFA 2010 of 2009, but it was more like the FIFA 2006 of 2010.


EZ Snappin – I love Tim Schafer (Psychonauts may be my game of the decade) and I love metal (\m/). The problem is that I hate RTS games and despite everything Schafer said in interviews, Brutal Legend is a goddamn RTS at heart. I finally ended up watching a friend play so I could enjoy the humor without hating the experience. It just isn’t the same.

Mordy – What a shitty year for games.

Metacritic – 360

Ste: Is it me or is the ref a bit ‘handy’ with the cards? The game seems a bit twitchy in changing the controlling player at times, kind of annoying. Pressing start to skip replays is hugely frustrating; what was wrong with just pressing X? Do the player graphics not get muddy after a while? Seems visually rather boring. In summary, yeah FIFA was slightly better.

Metacritic – Wii

EZ Snappin: Took the revolutionary control of the debut and tweaked it in all the right ways.
