Games You Regret Purchasing

I thought it might be interesting and useful for people to talk about which games they regret purchasing. That way you can learn from others mistakes

Obviously opinions will vary and so a short reason for why you regret buying the game would help.

I'll start:

BIA2/Sandstorm - Generic shooters that offer nothing new.
Predators - Very repetitive.
Ravensword - Overall mediocre game with nothing special or exciting.
InfectThemAll - Gets repetitive.
Rope 'n' Fly 2 - Boring. Not much to do. Free version just as good.
PZS - Can get repetitive.
Sim City - Boring.
Gamebox/101 in 1 Games - Lots of mediocre games not worth your time.
Impossible Game - Horribly frustrating and gets boring quickly.
NFS: Underground - Average racer. Real Racing is much better.
Mega Worm - Gets old fast.
Battle Bears - Repetitive, boring and unpolished.

Most of the apps I regret purchasing I got after seeing them on sale and feeling inclined I'll try improve my app purchasing addiction though and hopefully this thread will help

I can also add other peoples opinions here to make it easier for others to look through.

Hope you guys support the idea

P.s. I accidentally put this thread in the reviews section so if any mods are reading this you can delete the other thread Thanks

Thread like this exists already. But, why not another.

I regret purchasing a bunch of Gameloft games. With so much hype, I kept buying thinking they would someday satisfy me. Nope. Dumbass I am.

Super monkey ball 2 super monkey sucks. I bought it when it dropped to .99 but I feel I would have still been ripped off if I got it when it was free. The game stinks.

Sorry about that. I didn't see the other thread.

Hopefully this one goes well though

Nice to see lots of participation so far. To make this even more helpful, leaving a reason/short comment would be great!

I agree about the Gameloft comments.

Rope n fly 2 - Not much different from the lite version.
Triniti Game's All in One Gamebox - Huge file, only like 3-4 decent games.
Ricky - ...
Fastlane - Nothing wrong with it, I'm just not a huge fan of racing games.
RunStickRun - Gets repetitive...

That's pretty much it.

Currently Enjoying: BUG HEROES 2
