I think it's pretty clear that Borderlands was the biggest dissapointment of the year, but Verticus didn't live up to expectations either.

MADE THE FRONT PAGE ON TA!

you doesnt think it was repetitive....did you even play to the end? Firsy 1 hour is amazing, then its downhill from there on...such a drag. Even the dev got admin in one interview the game should have been 50% shorter.

Three games comes my mind:

Dead Trigger
Flashout 3d
Ravensword Shadowlands (Great game, but for the big hype everyone did, I thought it would be an epic game, but it is just good)

Already said RH, and I never owned Beatdown, but I heard it was very disappointing.

Woblyware is really slipping. I hope they get their rep back and make amazing games like LoE again.
