Anybody remember an old SNES game called Hagane? Unnaturally difficult, and not in a fair way. I remember playing the hell out of it one summer in junior high though.Maybe the next one darling...maybe the next one

Another mediocre title: Disciples III. Actually, I think this game probably passes from "mediocre" to "bad" based upon general shoddiness, but there are some fun ideas under the surface. It changes the Disciples combat system to what is basically Heroes of Might and Magic, but it retains the one-creature-equals-one-creature party system as opposed to Heroes' stacking system. I'm cautiously optimistic that the upcoming expansion(s?) will fix the deep issues in the game.

Quake 4. It's one of the few FPS games that I've finished and I had a good time with it. There was just something about the gameplay that just kept me going. It didn't try too hard to be groundbreaking and the gunplay was simple but oddly compelling.
Hinterland was another simple but oddly compelling game.

I had a lot of fun with Unreal 2, despite it disappointing many by promising more than it eventually delivered, it wasn't particularly expansive but there were some likeable if clichéd characters and some nice level design. I also enjoyed Shadowman back in the day, alright the platforming and combat was a bit sub-Tomb Raider but the setting, the story, some great atmospherics and elements of free roaming made it fun.
And I quite liked Invisible War, too. There, I said it ;)...There is nothing more powerful than a bad idea who's time has come...

Mass Effect 2, though I didn't find the story, characters and repetitive gameplay to be any good yet I still kept on playing and finished it in about two days. Anyway, I tried replaying it a few days back but couldn't get myself to continue after two hours.

C&C Renegade, I don't know if I can consider the multiplayer section mediocure because its part of a medicure game, but to be honest I really loved the multiplayer of Renegade. The LAN matches and the online matches were really really fun.

I've plaid all Telltale's CSI games to completion. I think I've enjoyed them because... because... Actually I don't really know why I enjoy them as objectively they've very few redeeming qualities.
I do like clicking on things till the computer tells me I've clicked on everything so it might just be that.

Matter of personal opinion, I'd say. A game is mediocre if I find it to be so, a bunch of scores don't dictate my personal opinion about it.

I put in a lot of hours playing faerie solitaire.
It's mediocre but addictive.

I gotta say Kane and Lynch: Dead Men. The thing is, I loved the concept of the game, and the trailers made it look almost as good as a cool action/thriller movie, but the game was.... Well.... "Meh"....
The story was kind of good, except the lacklustre endings, but the gameplay was pretty repetetive. And I find it to be weird that the shooting part of the game (which is like 99 % of the game) didn't seem to have the right feel in my opinion, when IO interactive did Freedom Fighters several years earlier, and that game rocked.
The sequel, Kane and Lynch: Dog Days, was pure crap though. Nice visuals, if a bit chaotic, but poor gameplay and story.

However in Fist Alpha (which was a prequel) the guy you're replacing in the first Vietcong is the main character you play as in the expansion pack. Oh, and also the point-man dies in the expansion.
I never had any trouble at all with the POW mission, what was the problem?

I rather guiltily found myself enjoying & finishing Deus Ex: Invisible War earlier this year after picking it up in a sale. Probably only because I had enough distance from memories of the original having not touched it for 5 years. Still had to repress a nagging feeling throughout of "why the fuck are you giving this valuable time, this is a pale dumbed-down shadow of one of the greatest gaming experiences I've ever had". Had it's moments though and that was enough.
Also, the first Shadowgrounds game. Utterly generic & predictable but somehow it was what I wanted at the time.

FUEL. Although perhaps that actually counts as a bad game, not just mediocre.

eople say Nox is crap?
I absolutely with my whole heart loved this game. It is one of the best games i had ever played.
Few reasons but not all:
Interesting weapons and spells. we get the cliche sword, bow and magic staff. but also bouncing chakrams, knock-back crossbows and staff allowing you to shoot gazillions of fireballs in few seconds. You also get to summon monsters, summon giant fists to crush the enemy.
Funny. Game is very lighthearted which makes it so good.
Enemies. great variety of things to kill. not a 20 variations of same skeleton. from imps to black panthers, from giant leaches to steampunk golems. also goddamned bats
Great control system. in real life fast paced action game it is quite hard to do a magic combo. Nox has similar system to what Magicka has. it allows massive combos if done right and you have your keys bind properly.
You get three classes but each class plays completely different. not only with what weapons they use but first 2-3 hours are completely different then mid section of the game is also very different (between warrior and wizard. conjurer is in between) as well as the last 10 minutes or so (without counting reloads)
I played diablo 2 and enjoyed it till act 2 where i realized how bad it is compared to Nox. Its just a massive grindfeast which reason is to make grinding easier.
I find Nox to be one of the best games I had ever played. Already finished it 5 times (twice as wizard, twice as conjurer and once as warrior) and will surely play it again. If you guys find it medicore then Nox is a mediocre game that I find enjoyable. Not surprisingly as everything i knew about the game before actually playing suggested it to actually be a very good game. Turned out to be a great one.
another one is... is shogo loved hated or mediocre.
because if we don't talk about end boss battle which was so terrible (for both paths) that it should not be spoken aloud, then shogo is very fun game. It was my first purchase on GOG when it launched (this or sacrifice as i got both. for one i paid another one was a bonus gift for new members)
