The ten most disappointing games of 2010

1) Civilization V
This was the most disappointing game of the year because it brought to the Civilization series a really cool new feature -- tactical combat -- and then utterly neglected the AI needed to make it work. From there, the game fell apart entirely. Imagine a shooter where the AI enemies can't aim their guns or a racing game where the other drivers can't steer. The other questionable decisions -- watered down diplomacy, no religion, that strained policy tree -- all take a back seat to the very simple fact that Civilization V simply didn't work as it was designed. Read the review here.

I installed the latest 'big' patch, and the game is still boring. :-/

Hard to tell who's on the take in the reviewing industry. ;-7

Gamespy names Civ 5 top strategy game of 2010.

My favorite part of the closing comments is where they imply that this game is better because it's less complex than previous versions:

. If you've ever been curious about Civ but intimidated by its complexity, this is the one you absolutely need to check out.
