List The Bad Games...
« on: May 07, 2003, 05:48:13 PM »
Hello,

Let's start a list of games that you guys believe are bad and should not be purchased. I mean none of us want to waste their time and money on something that's crap, right?

Please give a pretty good explanation of why you think the game that you list is bad. Let's make this a good and useful thread ;)

I was very disappointed with Microsofts Combat Flight Simulator 3 when I bought it because it didn't work with my brand new computer with a high end video card... if it won't work with a powerful computer then what will it work with?

I did end up getting it to work after updating my video card drivers and downloading a patch for the game, but considering all the work involved in getting it to run I'm not sure it was worth it.

It is a fun game, the graphics look pretty good... I just think they released an unfinished product. They should have worked on it for a few more months.

But if you enjoy flight sims and you're willing to put some effort into getting the game to work on your computer then go ahead and buy it.

The worst game ever - Gun Metal ... this game was glorified as being able to show what the GeForce 4 was really capable of... Manic Miner had better graphics that this crap.

Hmm, thanks for the info you two. I haven't checked out either of those games and probably won't any time soon.

Again jump earlier or jump later.
You DO get used to this game after a while :P
And yes, you need every key to open the gate back down at the bottom of the screen on the right side to get onto level two  :lol:

Well, I have completed Manic Miner!

Yes, I used to have a lot of time.

It's an amazing game. Originally made for the ZX Spectrum.

There is a cheat by the way.... Just search in google for Manic Miner PC version cheat, or something similar.

I completed it without cheating :-)

Only once though, it's near impossible to do.
