What were the worst games to come out on the Amiga?!
« on: October 17, 2003, 03:50:06 PM »
Forget about the best games on the Amiga! We all know that the likes of Lemmings, SWOS, Cannon Fodder and Speedball 2 kicked ass! But what were the worse games ever to feature on the beloved Amiga? Ones that make a mokey of the Amiga hardware. My vote would have to be Outrun! The Master System version was better! Or that muched hyped game Rise of the Robots, but that was crap on all systems if i recall!

Chaos Engine 2 - Man, what a disappointment...  :cry:

I have a catapult. Give me all the money, or I will fling an enormous rock at your head.

I never played Chaos Engine 2 but i heard that it was a let down. Pity, i thought the former was pretty kick ass! :-) There were worse games on the Amiga though weren't there?

Sure, but I never bought those  ;-) Chaos Engine 2 should and could have been awesome but it sat in development hell whilst the Bitmaps made the transition to the PC market before being released half-finished with lots of GFX from The Chaos Engine botched in, lousy AI and a seemingly complete lack of playtesting - shameful - particularly from such a respected Amiga games developer.  :-(

Are you insane? That is probably one of the greatest games ever!

AB3D rocks too.

WHD install Street Fighter 2 and then you get a better game. No more disk swapping! :-) AB3D2 was okay if you have the right machine and if you changed the installer script for yourself!

Championship Manager 2. Good on the PC, but way too slow on a basic A1200

Yeah, Rise of the Robots was awful. I've heard the sequel is even worse. Thankfully, the Amiga version was cancelled.

I could never stand HOI. The Final Gate and Prey: An Alien Encounter for CD32 were very sad, too.

Tales from Heaven - AF claimed it as the Mario killer, bad graphics, bad gameplay, just bad all around.
