Ever had a game that you finally bought, hoping for great things, pop it in, and find yourself playing a game worse than expected? This doesn't have to mean "The Worst Game Ever" or anything. Just something that you weren't expecting. Discuss.

Mine is probably Mario Party 8. It wasn't bad, but not what I had quite expected.

Isn't that sentence an oxymoron? :/

I never really was disapointed with any Mario game. I'm normally pretty much neutral when it comes to things like this.

Disappointment is what you feel when you see something initially, not over the course of every time you ever use it. :-\

Re: Most Disappointing Mario Game

It looked stupid before it came out, and as such I could not have been disappointed.

Re: Most Disappointing Mario Game

I'm sorry, but I haven't played enough Mario games to be disappointed.

Super Mario 64 DS. I probably wasn't expecting a whole lot, but the controls are just so bad compared to the original. Can't play platformer games without a joy stick, sorry.

^ Well, sometimes the gameplay was annoying at certain points of the game.

Re: Most Disappointing Mario Games

I remember one time I played Mario is Missing. Before I actually knew what it was.

Couldn't figure out how to do a damn thing.

And another thing with gameplay: Galaxy had an occasional annoying camera angle here and there.

Don't forget when you move to the opposite side of a planetoid, but in most cases, it's harmless.

Alot of people liked that game. I don't really think dubbing it as a "utter failure" is fair just because you didn't like it. Besides, instead of complaining about how it could've been better, why can't you be happy it wasn't worse? :/

I'm going to be hated for this, but Donkey Kong. When I first played it, I was expecting something else, I guess.

Re: Most Disappointing Mario Games

Onto the topic itself, PiT was somewhat disappointing, especially with the plotholes.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Still one of the best games out there, but I expected more from the SSE.

I'd say Mario Strikers Charged.

I expected much more out of it.

I think we should allow other series mentions in this topic...

Anyway, Mario Kart Wii was disappointing with some of it's characters...
