Resident Evil 4:

no mouse support, patch didnt work, hate game pads, didnt get past 1st level without getting sick of the lack of freedom of movement. Worst console port ive ever seen. Reminds me why i hate consoles

So you base your console hate on a game you played on PC? :wtf:

Crysis Demo
-borked in vista 64 bit
-borked SLI support
-new Crysis specific beta drivers offer no performance gain
-doesn't appear very optimized
-average AI not what I was expecting from the hype
-dx10 features can be enabled in DX9. This demo is not built with DX10 from the ground up as been hyped about.
-wasn't all that fun for me
-appeared more as a graphical tech demo more so then anything else.

YES

because the game is the same on the console except worse by the resolution in most cases.

But the ports that suck on PC are often optimized for a console. I played a Marvel fighting game for Xbox, and it was incredibly fun. For PC it sucked. It looked better on the PC, but the controls where all messed up and just plain dumb.

So I think it's unfair to do that. It's like do a bad port of say Rome: Total War to Xbox, it probably wouldn't work (although C&C/Red Alert worked very good with the Playstation..), maybe a lot of console gamers would scream out in agony over how bad it is but it's really a great game for the PC.

I think it's very optimized as I can run it on 1024*769 with almost everything on high. Not bad for a 1.5 yeard old graphic card and a next-gen title. ;)

Worst game ever for me would be tied between 2142 and NFS Carbon. 2142 is simply an expansion of BF2 with all of the same problems, but now your in a nasty looking wasteland instead of colorful war zones.

Carbon is a joke. Drifting is a mess in that game, as is handling with every car. The aston martin for examples handles like a porche where it should handle closer to a viper. corvettes handle the same as 1970's muscle cars. It's pathetic, especially compared to most wanted where handling was much closer to real life...and that isnt saying much. I've played the demo for prostreet and they are making a step in the right direction, but its no gran turismo gone street racing.

Not to many will agree with you who have higher end dual/quad cores. Since you have a e4300 I don't think you can relate ;)

Resident evil 4 on the Gamecube was the best granted it didnt have all the extra the other ports had but still great controls and story anyday.

Hmmmn worst game ive played recently has to be the actual worst game ever created Two Worlds

God that game sucked balls the loading times were scatty the graphics scatty and the whole feel of the game was like man this is a broken N64 game! You would go into the grass about 5 mins of loading and a pig would try to molest you then youd hit it and it stutterd and then youd put your sword away and it would swap sides it was put away on. Then youd talk to people and there faces would go into a mode indescribable then the next person would just talk without any facial expression. Lucky i played it for about 45mins and decided to give it back to my friend who i said do not but this game for £45 or any price to, lol he almost died on playing it he took it back the next day tho.

Other mentions go to Driver 3 on anything it just sucked even jumping wasnt correct.

Need for speed pretty much only liked the ancient ones kinda liked Underground 1 but the newest one Pro Street demo sucked hard, i mean it kicks in the braking after you go at a high speed and try to turn, its really easy on the hardest mode as well, mostly it feels arcadish and boring.

Really bad games are like superman 64 bad never had the pleasure of playing it but have seen it on youtube.

PC Games loads of them suck but to say Oblivion sucks is just annoying, its great you can just use the map to warp to a location its easy you dont get lost you just use the map, the 360 version has loading problems but pc version rocks if you have a good pc, so many mds for it to keep it going along and then theres the 2 expansions for it.

Why is everyone complaining about a beta version of a game not released yet? My god...

why do you keep insisting this is a "BETA" release.... I have found nowhere on the download site from EA that states this is a BETA version. If you would please quit making this statement until you can back it with some sort of proof that it is in fact a beta and not a full release demo.

I have to say CRYSIS as well....for a game put out by Nvidia to have absolutely no SLI support is just bunk....not to mention the optimization. I know that I have to play on medium setting at 1280X1024, but the game to me is nothing more than FARCRY with trees that fall and a couple of neat tricks for its "suit".

Stranglehold and FIFA 08 i guess :D (Juiced 2 if I would have downloaded that crappy demo)

God damnit, if I want to play a console game, I buy a console and the game! keep this badly ported games away from the PC. They not even seem to try to do a good port. They make those games for the consoles and decide to take the extra money putting 15 minutes of work into a "PC"-Version.

sorry worded a bit incorrectly durring my rant....but Nvidia had there hands in it as the logo in startup leads to! I mean COD4 can optimize for it but CRYSIS couldnt?

If they didnt why the need for the CRYSIS driver update released on the same day as the demo?

agreed but TW08 is also an EA game ( anyone else seeing a trend here????) My TW08 disc just stopped working after 3 weeks of service. Contacted EA for warranty info 3 times, still have not gotten it. So I was left with the only alternative , getting a "fixed" .exe .

a disk can't just "stop working"
