2017 was a pretty successful year for the game industry when there were many new blockbuster games released. Of course, among them, there are still bombs that blow up, making us full of disappointment. These bombs are caused by not meeting expectations from the community or by the publisher’s failed business model. Here is the top 5 bomb list of 2017.
Mass Effect: Andromeda
After Mass Effect: Andromeda was delayed from 2016 to March 2017, fans expected the delay to give NPH BioWare more time to perfect it. But unfortunately this fantasy RPG game is disappointing.
The game received mixed reviews, focusing on a number of issues including the narration. Unlike the first Mass Effect trilogy, Andromeda’s plot is not attractive enough for fans to learn more about the game’s story. The new version lacks the appeal of Mass Effect.
In addition, the game also encountered many technical errors including facial movement errors. Although the vast majority of bugs have been fixed, this still cannot save fans from returning to Mass Effect: Andromeda.
Friday the 13th: The Game
Friday the 13th: The Game is an iterative game, between a group of scouts trying to survive the bloodthirsty killer Jason Voorhees. This is a side story of the Friday the 13th franchise, but the bloody murders or the cat and mouse phases are not enough to scare us in this game.
At launch, the server was overloaded because the demand for the game was so high that players couldn’t connect to the game. These bugs have mostly been fixed, but the concerns surrounding the game are far from over.
The cheating issue on Friday the 13th still hasn’t been fixed, and fans are all the more disappointed that the single-player mode hasn’t lived up to our expectations. For those who contributed capital to launch the Friday the 13th: The Game project on Kickstarter in 2015, they certainly did not expect it to be so ‘spray’.
Yooka-Laylee is yet another failed crowdfunded game. Considered to be the successor to Banjo-Kazooie, promising to bring back classic platform gameplay. But what players notice is that the game is completely ‘stuck’ in the past.
The gameplay of Yooka-Laylee was considered outdated and criticized for the way the levels were designed to be unnecessarily confusing. For those who are nostalgic, Yooka Laylee is probably the ideal game. But a lot of people feel this version preserves the worst parts of the platform game series. For that reason, it is considered one of the most disappointing games of 2017.
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite brings back this beloved fighting game by changing the traditional 3v3 standard to 2v2, while Infinity Stones allows players to customize their play style.
Unfortunately, these features did not stop fans from being disappointed, especially in terms of the number of characters in the game. Despite the addition of new warriors, it feels like the game still lacks diversity in characters. In addition, many fans were upset about the way the character was portrayed, claiming that the drawing in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite still has too many flaws.
Star Wars Battlefront 2
With lots of features taken from player feedback (single-player mode included) and released just before the release of the Star Wars movies, Star Wars Battlefrone 2 may have been the big game but the new version This broke the hearts of fans.
Gameplay reviews are overwhelmingly positive, but it’s the game’s business model that is controversial. Star Wars Battlefront 2 has been criticized for in-game transactions and loot boxes to steal money from online players.
The effect of this business model was so negative that it forced EA to remove the in-game transaction before the game was even released. But changes to make up for the lack of in-game transactions – like reducing the amount of credits received – continue to frustrate fans.
EA promised to fix the leveling system in the game and hinted that ‘in-game trading’ might never return to this game again, despite initially saying they’re removing it temporarily. No matter what changes were introduced, the ‘mirror broke’ and the gaming community was completely disappointed with Star Wars Battlefront 2.
