Games to Avoid

Below is a list of games that we urge all of our intelligent visitors to avoid.
Sometimes games can provide an enjoyable experience for those smart enough to have gotten their hands on a copy - see Must-Haves for a list of such titles. Other times, games can be simply horrible... providing a fun experience to a very slim few and a major headache to a majority that just wishes they could get their money back. We are here to stop the nonsense. Avoid these games...

What Makes it Bad: Lackluster Graphics; Tedious Repetitive Gameplay; Little Replay Value

With Splinter Cell still a few weeks away, it was thought that Ubi Soft's Ghost Recon might be just the tactical action game to hold GameCube owners in the interim. It wasn't. IGN writes, "This latest Tom Clancy title to hit the Cube ships under the clever guise of a quality "Game of the Year" package, but in reality, it is nothing more than a below average port of a once great military shooter." GameSpot reviewers add, "Frustration carries over to just about every element of the game thanks to its poor artificial intelligence, graphical flaws, and repetitive mission objectives."
