Games that suck, but you like


Recommended Posts

Who in here has played Thrill Kill for the PS1?

I haven't played it but IIRC there was a demo but was unfinished and never released. I hear it was developed with the Wu-Tang Shaolin Style engine and that was a decent game IMHO.

One more I'd like to add: Predator - Concrete Jungle. Mediocre graphics, dodgy storyline, and the built-in limitations in cammo takes the fun out of controlling a Pred. Game mechanics were pretty wonky, too.

And, of course, there's Robotech: Battlecry. About the most disproportionate game in terms of difficulty, and its age really shows in the graphics even for a cell-shaded game. Also, the way the enemy AI is designed forces you to stick to jet mode during space missions, and GERWALK mode during "protect-the-stadium/bridge" levels--using any other modes gets you killed really fast. Still, I keep coming back to it again and again, because it's the only game I have where I could control a Valk.

Time to mod your ps2 and get a hold of this beauty.

It puts battlecry to shame. And you'll never have to play those annoying escort missions again. I'm looking at you cat's eye.

See, I was having a good day, and then you brought up that Cat's Eye mission, and now I'm having all these awful flashbacks... (twitch, twitch) :wacko:

That mission actually killed the game for me. I got so fed up, I stopped playing and never bothered to finish it. I only drag it out for player vs. player (turn off all the targeting, enable fog, and hunt each other sniper style... it's stupidly fun).

I once owned a bootleg of the game. The only unfinished parts were the FMVs (which were filled in with the Virgin Interactive logo). Otherwise, the game itself was fully playable. It's just too bad EA dropped the axe on it because they feared it would ruin their image. Yeah right!

So then you don't know, after beating that horrible stage the next stage has you escorting it down through the atmosphere. Not as annoying as the first but still rage educing.

I can't really think of any game that does escort missions well aside from ICO.

Okay, NOW I'm pissed at HG for denying me an English version of this game! The graphics are pretty decent, considering the fact that it's from a past generation console, far better than that technicolor mess that passed for buildings in RB: Battlecry. My friend actually handed down a Japanese PS2 to me, but where the heck do I find the game? Any online stores that still carry this title?

And yeah, that Cat's Eye mission still haunts me to this day. Even with SUPER Packs and a YF-1R, it was a borderline nightmare.

No one, because Virgin Interactive shitcanned the project before it went off the ground when they bought out the original developer; it was deemed too violent. If you want to play a game with that engine, go and get a copy of Wu-Tang Shao-lin Style.

I bought a copy off ebay but it ran about $50 a few years ago. Not sure what they sell for anymore.

If you use component cables on the ps2 the graphics get a definite upgrade and they look great on and HDTV.

You should check some of the other videos. In the later stages the background is covered with hundreds of zentradi ships and dozens of them come swarming at you and there is no lag anywhere. Sega did a hell of a job with the game. Part of the reason I could never get into the psp games is because of how high this game set my standards for a macross game.

WRONG. It was EA that canned the project after they acquired Virgin Interactive. And how would you know if no one on this board played the game? Do you really know everyone in MW?

Empire Strikes Back- SNES, unbalanced and frustrating. I only play it cuz I'm a die hard fan, plus for the last stage.

Heck, all of the Super Star Wars games on the SNES were like that, but pretty good too. Out of the three, I was only able to beat A New Hope, and without cheating too.

The secret to win was Chewie.
