Contrarily, games you bought with good reviews that were awful?

What I said in the title.  Mine would be some of the highest ranking games on here, Rift for example, or Oblivion.

    Spore, Resident Evil 5, and Darksiders.

    P.S. I love Oblivion =p

    its like you took the words out of my mouth- Spore was dull, Resident Evil 5, I got a phonecall after 5 minutes, died and never went back. It had the two kind of characters I hate, the overly-macho guy who is so far in the closet he must sleep with Aslan, and the blow-up doll woman.

    Plants Vs Zombies

    So many awesome Indie games, and this one seemed to get so much praise...

    Oblivion. Civ 5 was pretty disappointing as well.

    I always wonder if paying advertisement dollars really does influence reviewers. I have to say that I have seen gamespot trash some games in reviews even while their ads are plastered all over their site.

    Man Of Constant Sorrow

     Good publications can separate advertisement from criticism. It's generally completely different people who handle those two departments, I suspect. Besides Gamespot, PCGamer and IGN are my favorites.

    Red Dead Redemption. Couldn't stand that game. Thankfully i got such a good deal on it, resold it and only lost like $5. Wasn't a big fan of Dragon Age origins either.

    Dragon Age II. It got good reviews but I thought it was crap. Don't even care about finishing it now.

    So you miss the part where the Archmage gets trampled by a herd of rampant wildebeast?  Your missing out.

    Both Dragon Age games, Darksiders and Oblivion.  Just could not for the life of me get into them/

    Whoever mentioned Spore before, that was really massively massively over hyped.  So dull and ultimately pointless.  And Civilisation 5, exactly the same as 4 but with very slightly enhanced graphics.

     I enjoyed Civ 5, but it was much more shallow than any of its predecessors, in my opinion.

    There's an interesting article on metacritic about games that scored high with critics but low with users, and vice-versa.

    Here

    It kind of makes you wonder which games had a little 'extra' marketing money go to 'marketing' toward reviewers.

    Dungeon Siege 3 by far the worst game I have played in some time. It got mixed reviews and it doesn't even come close to resembling a DS game.  I'll never buy  another Obsidian developed game.
