sucky suck suck games

i have bought a few games lately that have really not lived up to expectations and in an attempt to limit this in the future i would like to ask the toucharcade community which games they would recommend staying away from. Specifically games that might have gained a lot of popularity or over hype regardless of their actual quality. Thanks in advance.

Stick Wars and I'd say Zenonia, but I don't want to get flamed....oops I said it anyways

It's not the worst game in the world, but it fits the description, "games that might have gained a lot of popularity or over hype regardless of their actual quality"

Just my opinion of course, not trying to pass it off as a fact, like I've seen some people love to do on here.

There are a lot of other sucky suck games, but those are the two popular ones I can think of right now.

inevitably, you will find enough people to generate an "i hate this game" list for every game/app in the store.

Well, I would say stay clear of Mote-M and Spore.

I think Zenonia could be great if Gamevil would just fix the D-pad. We have seen a few updates for Baseball Superstars already, so they will likely address the problems plaguing Zenonia in time. Also, expansion packs like we are seeing with Chillingo's Quest would add value to Zenonia. It is currently not worthy of 5 star reviews but with some easy fixes it could be. Or maybe I just need to grab one of these and get the handheld Zelda craving out of my system.
