GameOver - Top Ten Worst Games of 2000

Daikatana (c) Eidos Interactive

Daikatana didn't stand much of a chance after all the hype, delays, and behind-the-scenes mischief that took place. When it finally shipped, critics and gamers alike voiced their dislike with the product. It looked old and played poorly. If John Romero could only have those years back, I'm sure he'd do things differently. Since he can't, Daikatana will forever be known as one of the biggest disappointments in PC gaming and easily holds one of the top spots in the Top Ten Worst Games of 2000.

Here's a little blurb from our review of Daikatana:

One of my biggest gripes about this game concerns the start of the game. Personally, if I ever made a game, I would make the first couple levels very fun and addictive, but Romero decided for the "make them quit and return the game after playing the first level" strategy. I tried and tried my best to play through the Japan scenario, which consists of five or six levels, but I couldn't and it wound up taking me a couple days. The first level in the swamps is so ugly and confusing it would make the average gamer want to give up and take it back to the store.

We're almost there, give me number 2!
