Default Games you like that scored low on metacritic

Let's hear them. I downloaded the demo for Operation Darkness and I thought it was cool. I would never have bothered but seeing KTA and Godstart playing it made me try it out.

Others I can currently think of:
Two Worlds
Superman Returns (yep... actually thought it did Superman some justice... just repetitive)

I also enjoyed two worlds. Sure, it had its fair share of issues (mostly framerate problems) but I still had a lot of fun playing that game. Shadowrun would also be another. Played that game online for many hours even though many reviews trashed it for not having a SP element.

I'm actually looking forward to the expansion for Two Worlds. They say it supposed to add a lot.

I can think of many:
Operation Darkness (360)
Culdcept Saga (360)
Lost Odyssey (360)
Jade Empire (360)
Naruto:Rise of a Ninja (360)
Gundam (PS3)
Stella Deux (PS2)
Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. The Soulless Army (PS2)
Clock Tower (PS1)
Samurai Western (PS2)
Steambot Chronicles (PS2)
Rule of Rose (PS2)
AR Tonlico (PS2)
Tales of the Abyss (PS2)
Folklore (PS3)
Enchanted Arms (PS3)


I mean I could go on all day about games I liked that the critics didn't like, but whatever...

Operation Darkness is a very good tactical strategy game, it's what I expected and I enjoyed it. While the Demo drops you into the middle of the game and it's rather hard without knowing what's going on, the game itself isn't well represented by it.

jade empire is a xbox game, and it got praised but thats about it. I thought it was a nice diversion from kotor during bioware's run on the xbox.

also, yakuza ps2, okami ps2 and original killzone were amazing games but, didnt do amazing.

Ya those SC4 matches were some of the best times I've had on XBL. I also ended up unlocking like 80 points worth of achievements. Not sure what most of them were for. I know one was when we double KO'd and another for ring outs on that one map.

Tonight I think I have to go out with some friends of my GF comming down from Montreal but I'll see if I can squeeze some time in. I'm off on Friday and Monday so I got a long week-end!
