5. LEGO Brawls | Score: 46 (PS5)

LEGO / Sony

LEGO games are the best at worst Very good at best. however, LEGO Brawls, A Smash Bros– As a fighting game, it is different from this rule. The main problem is that this is a bad port of a 2019 phone game. (I played it a few minutes ago and completely forgot about it.) And to make matters worse, the publisher had the audacity to charge $40 for this no-f.A port of three year old mediocre mobile game rills. LEGO Brawls You deserve this place on the list on PS5!

4. XEL | Score: 43 (Change)

Tiny Roar / Nintendo

For a second, when I first saw the name of this sci-fi 3D open-world action game, I thought it was sent to some weird XFL game without my knowledge. The case is not like that and instead, it looks somewhat beautiful XEL The PC port was also hampered by bugs, patchy gameplay, and frustrating technical issues.

3. The fall of Babylon | Score: 41 (PS5)

Square Enix

Taking a game flop is not shocking. The fall of Babylon In the year Here are the top five worst games released in 2022. That’s probably down to the terrible controls, the boring combat, and the fact that everything just feels incomplete. At the same time, it’s a little shocking that this live-action RPG only took third place on the list. I warned you not to play The fall of BabylonBut it’s actually surprisingly cheap (In some cases even free) to pick it up now after Square Enix announced it Killing servers for this live service game In February, less than a year after its release.

2. Crossfire X | Score: 38 (Xbox Series X/S)

Solution / Smilegate / Xbox

Medicine Entertainment makes good shit. i love Alan Wake, Max Payne, And control, Games on Metacritic average in the 83 to 89 range. So the idea of ​​the studio is to build a new single-player FPS campaign as Crossfire X Originally designed, it looks great on paper. In practice, The actual gameplay is boring and confusing. Mostly played as bad call of duty Knock it off and it won’t be fun until it’s too late. By the time the game rolled around I was so tired I didn’t care. And then I tried to play the online PvP part of the game (not medicated) and I remembered that I should have at least a dozen better, more annoying, more fun shooters on my Xbox and I stopped playing. Crossfire X.

1. Post 4: No Ridgers. | Score: 30 (PC)

Running with scissors

Seeing this low point, there will be people who use it as a weapon in their struggle against the so-called “wake” critics and world journalists. Here’s the thing: I played an open-world shooter. Post 4 And its various missions and side-quests are set in a ruined city, and even if I ignore its noise, punch-down humor, and cringe-worthy humor, I’m left with just like a crazy shooter to play. Mail 2 But it’s worse. And when you create a game that is being compared negatively Mailbox 2, you made a mistake. I can say about the good thing Post 4 Well… not at least. Mail 3!
