Not terrible, but close - Rise of the robots.

Thought I would bring this thread back to life. So what games did you find poor, terrible or just generally laughable.

We wasted a lot of time on Deathmask and Dogs of War and well, they are both pretty terrible.

I guess even a ****e game is still fun in two player.

Well i know Cannon Fodder is considered a classic but i have never know a game to make me so mad back in 1994 :lol:
 
Building up a soldier to a lieutenant or corporal and then having him shot on some impossible mission - well i'm not normally a violent person but  i threw the game box across the room so hard it became impaled on the back of some darts stuck in a dartboard :roflmao: My excuse - i was around 16 at the time!
 
This is why i'm better off playing RPG/Point+Click/Strategy games :)

Ugh....

I just played the Amiga version of Indy Jones and the Temple of Doom... Oww, my eyes are BURNING! So utterly, absolutely horrible, drab and awful!!
I would say the graphics remind me of a C-64 game, but that is insulting the 64!! More like an Apple II...
Yet the arcade game was SO good, I thought...

Other 'dishonorable mentions' include:
Rise of the Robots (and I bought the CD32 version, LOL!)
Phalanx (I thought it was gonna be the Jap. h-shooter...nope)
Pit-Fighter
Phobia (unless you cheat)

Marc Frick

A1200T / \'060, 256MB, CD-R, OS3.9
A4000 w/ WarpEngine / 82MB , OS3.1
A4000 16MB, OS 3.9
A1200 , \'030 / 10MB
A1200 (stock)

CD32 :)

...And a very sick 4000T

Was the arcade the isometric one?

Well, at least that was just the box. My younger brother had a habit of smashing  joysticks against the wall (his inability to master the control scheme in Barbarian 2 caused particular carnage). I suppose his excuse was that he was 9 at the time. However, he called around to my house a while back and did the same thing to my PS3 controller (and kicked the console for good measure)-he'll be 30 in December!

Barbarian II was one of the first computer games i ever bought:) Even back then i had great difficulty controlling the thrusts of the warrior and found it very unfair one minute you're running across the screen, the next minute you fall straight into a pit or hole on the next screen giving you no time to stop running :roflmao:
 
There was a certain sense of satisfaction in chopping off those chicken creatures heads on the rare occasion i managed it :roflmao: i seem to remember getting pecked into a hole on a regular basis
