These days, it's actually quite rare for a hotly anticipated, mega-hyped video game to fall far short of critical and sales expectations. Thankfully.
But as of now, it seems as if the recently released Medal of Honor: Warfighter may take the undisputed crown of Most Disappointing Game of 2012. Currently, the Metacritic ranking for the 360 version is 51, the PS3 version is 54, and the PC version is 58. As for me, I had to give it a 6 , and it's definitely my most disappointing game of the year.
I often remember games that perform better than expected, that turn out to be something fantastic when everyone was only expecting average quality. Those are the games I prefer to remember; I really don't want the colossal screw-ups bouncing around in my recall banks. The problems with Warfighter are glaring and obvious, as most all critics have said by now, and this may seriously hinder sales. Bad news for EA. It's difficult to find another title in 2012 that came even close to this level of disappointment. Then again, the year isn't over just yet…
