mad For me it was Auryn Quest. I was a big fan of the first NeverEnding Story. I was so excited when I heard about this game I could hardly stand it. At the time I was not online so I had to go by what I heard from sales people in EB and Babbages. I guess I expected a true adventure game in the line of the classics and it turned out to be an arcade, action, platform type game. Maybe in third person I would have liked it a little better, but all that jumping in first person was a pain in the butt. Played for about one hour. Uninstalled it. Never installed it again mad

I managed to fight my way through that game but it was a struggle. It could have been such a good game too.

I almost can't believe that I'm saying this, but it has to be Nancy Drew Scarlet Hand. I love ND games but this one had some frustrating spots that seemed glitchy to me. I couldn't trigger events and had to use a walkthrough, and even then I had trouble with it. That should never happen with a Nancy Drew game. If I didn't like Nancy so well, it wouldn't have been a disappointment.

Liath. It was glitchy, and not that much fun. I never really "got" it but I finished it. lol

For me, I think it was Myst Exile......waited and waited and then it was given to me as a gift and it took weeks, literally, and a change of hardware in order to get the thing to run, not to mention all the patches, etc. By the time I got to play it, I was so aggravated that I could not concentrate on it.

I had high hopes for Post Mortem and Full Moon in San Francisco because the dialogue trees were supposed to be different than other games. I finished both but never really got into them as I had expected I would.

For me it was definately Myst, I ran out and bought it immediately, then just to be on the safe side spent the bucks on the tip book,I was so dissapointed, I really wanted to like the game, but it just wasnt my cup of tea. frown

I can't say Myst - because it was the first game I saw. I can say that if I hadn't bought a few more games (initially for the kids) it would have been the last game I played. Myst didn;t do much for me at all when I first saw it.

Hmmm Chateau D'or was a huge disappointment. But since the criteria is really anticipated and then smashed - I would say Nine. Had this great cast, sounded like a great plot all that. Blech. rolleyes

I really hate to say this, but I'm going to have to say Nancy Drew Haunted Carousel. While I really did like the game, I was very very disappointed about the length of the game and how easy it was. Definitely a bummer!! devil

Adventure at Chateau D'Or.
I paid $40 for that thing when it first came out. Sold it for less than half that.
I just wanted to get it out of the house
so I wouldn't be reminded of my wasted money.

Ever since then I've been FAR more careful about what I buy.
And I've never been AS disappointed since.
I've been disappointed in some games,
but nothing got me as steamed as that Cheateau game.

Definately Chateau D'Or. There was so much "Hype" I couldn't wait to get this game...then I couldn't finish it fast enough! Wait...did I say "Game"?? nope...it was a "Lesson in French" Glynn

Definitely The Omega Stone. Too dark and just a bad game. REally a letdown for me.

I have to agree with HavingSaidThat. The Omega Stone was the pits! Extremely disappointing!
