In your opinion, what game, released this year, failed to live up to your expectations and/or pre-release hype?

Did you pre-order any of these games only to be sorely disappointed?

Halo 4's Metascore.

I _just_ started Dishonored but I think it is going to be the kind of game I'm just "meh" on. Kind of disappointing as the buzz around here and the trailer made it look awesome.

"Expectations" was the other option besides "hype".

Hmm, I've been pleased with all the 2012 games I've played, actually. I guess Papo & Yo would be the top contender here - the non-puzzling puzzles weren't that great, but it pretty well met my expectations in other regards.

Funny that the game was awesome and the score didn't reflect it. Like the opposite of Uncharted 2.

Edit: My big disappointment of the year was mayo's new attitude.

Really? Paper Mario on the 3DS was crap? That's too bad. The original on the N64 was a blast.

Uncharted 2 wasn't aweome?

I still haven't gotten over Metroid: Other M. I can't think of anything in 2012 that disappointed me.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 3, 2012, 7:54:55 AM PST
It wasn't 11/10 good.

No, not crap. Didn't meet expectations with the changes.

JWK says:
This list should begin and end with Resident Evil 6. Can't believe how excited I was for the game and how disappointed I was with the result. Especially after how good Revelations was on 3DS.

Also want to nominate NSMB2.

Not yet.

2012 ruled.

edit: Actually, maybe The Last Story for me, but after not liking Lost Odyssey all that much my expectations weren't super high.

I fall in with JWK on that game, it was awful.

What was wrong with NSMB 2?

Assassin's creed 3- Well at least it didn't live up to my expectations.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 3, 2012, 8:00:40 AM PST
Eh I don't think my expectations would be super high for RE6. I don't mind the new direction and I thoroughly enjoyed RE5. I don't think devs should ever, ever, ever, ever listen to what fans want.
