5 Disappointing Video Games That Got Way Better After The Initial Release


We all know how Publishers love to rush their game to market so they earn the most out of it. Rushing early results in bugs, glitches, and overall a less-polished game. But If developer and Publisher both work hard even after the game release then the chances of success of that game will increase. We are counting down those games that got way BETTER after their original launch.

NO MAN’S SKY

No Man’s Sky is a bold experiment in game design, and one I’m glad Hello Games took the opportunity to make. I can see some players taking issue with the utter lack of direction, but I personally found it a refreshing divergence from the usual hand-holding present in open world titles. The real beauty and appeal of the experience is in the discovery of the procedurally-generated worlds and the life forms that populate them, and I can’t wait to see what other players find. – We Got This Covered
Its scale and sense of isolation is special. The procedural nature imbues everything in the game with a sense of life that other, better-crafted games can’t match. And it nails the emergent storytelling that I want from a survival game. – GamesBeat
No Man’s Sky is a totally new experience. All Hello Games’ promises are in the final game. The original soundtrack is awesome. It’s a spectacular journey across the universe. – Hobby Consolas

 WARFRAME

Warframe isn’t anything special. It’s not revolutionary, exceptional or timeless. Still – every time I returned to the game, it kept playing for at least an hour (without regret). Digital Extremes has made an enjoyable, engrossing, spectacular game. Especially, when you find yourself a team or – even better – invite some friends. If you need a new opportunity to slaughter aliens, you should try Warframe. – GRYOnline.pl
Play Warframe. Play it for more than a few hours, preferably with friends, and keep an open mind into doing some third-party research to straighten out some of these systems. Warframe takes so much of what makes ARPG’s addictive, and rounds it out with more polish and depth than most its competitors on the current games market. If the hooks aren’t deeply embedded by then, maybe something this in-depth isn’t for you. – The Overpowered Noobs
Digital Extremes has created something that’s often genuinely fun to play, and given the cost of entry, Warframe’s well worth a try if you’re in the mood for something different. – IGN

 TOM CLANCY’S RAINBOW SIX SIEGE

Rainbow Six: Siege delivers on what it promised to be: a well-made, multiplayer-focused, team shooter. To criticize it for not having a stronger single player experience is accusing it of a pretense it never made, and consumers will decide whether the product has broad enough appeal to warrant its price. – DarkStation
The multiplayer core at the heart of Rainbow Six Siege is a great foundation. But given its lack of infrastructure around the mode and severe lack of meaningful modes to buttress it, Siege feels slight when compared to its past entries and the other big-name first-person shooter franchises it competes against. – Game Informer
Siege is both unforgivably callow and inarguably satisfying. Like parades or fireworks, it’s a vision that’s only fun if you can forget where it comes from and where it points to. – Washington Post

 DIABLO 3

It’s a fun game that takes too long to get going anywhere, but its combat is so slick and refined that everything else around needs to step up to that level of quality. The universe of Diablo is most certainly destroyed, but the game is far from it. – CPUGamer
Slaying monsters has seldom been this addictive and rewarding, expecially if you play with friends. But the story is boring, the auction house ruins the balance and the variation within each class is too limited. – Level7.nu
I’m sure that for some of you this product will be more than enough to kill some time after a hard day’s work, to meet up with your friends online, to drown in nostalgia, reminiscing about great action/RPGs of yore… Yet it’s a Blizzard game we’re talking about, and, as such, it was expected to be better than just a rehash of old ideas. Instead of bringing the genre to the next step of its evolution, Diablo 3 dwells on the past. – Absolute Games

 TOTAL WAR: ROME II

The game is far less polished than Shogun 2, and a few more patches will help, but Rome II is still a flawed game that is underwhelming when compared to previous titles in the franchise. – Worth Playing
Everything kind of just plods along and while you will get moments of brilliance, moments of wonder… they’re too easily buried by a startling amount of mediocrity. Total War: Rome 2 is a perfectly adequate/decent game. It should have been a bloody brilliant game. – GameWatcher
And here’s the rub: every addition, every sub-system, every mechanic is subservient to War. War is what Total War is really about. Everything else not directly related to conflict comes across as ancillary. Rome II is a game for warmongers, on both the campaign map and, obviously, on the battlefield. When peace is happening, nothing is happening. When war is happening, Rome comes alive. – PCGamesN
