Most Broken Game: The First Hour

Is Boiling Point the most broken game ever? Phil reminisces about the bugs that made the game so memorable. For all the wrong reasons...

most of the rpg's i've played have this kind of falling-apart-when-they-die-weapons. imagine they would have not: you would be carrying hundreds of weapons and armors in no time. and the ammo? well, i remember giving my rocket launcher to a marine in HALO when i was out of rockets. and he ALWAYS has some more (but doesn't want to share, apparently)

It's a shame because, from what I remember of it, the scope of the game was enormous. It was completely broken though, even after the patches.

FTL Dungeon Master IMHO It was/is the best RPG ever made.

You can take a look at this classic and play it if someone wants to

In 1982 I was addicted to Lady Bug and played it in the local arcade (every day) And yes i'm proud I did that!

If you just changed a few words, like 'jaguar' to 'giant scorpion' and 'doughnuts' to 'radioactive cockroach meat', it would be a review of fallout 3.

At least you could repair the guns in Fallout though ;-)

For the older people - Elite 2.

Reloaded every 3-4 minutes due to crashed (great game though).

How about Vampire the Masquerade - Great now but when it was released it sucked!.

Finally - absolutely any game on Vista! I cannot believe you cannot play Halo 2 on Windows 7 - Microsoft cannot get it to work!

i think its more of a Boiling point / just cause mix with a bit of far cry thrown in for good measure

io was really looking forward to it

i think its availible from many free online retailers although i dont know whether it would be worth trying or not

I loved boiling point - only game I never completed, because when it crashed it did the whole hog, BSOD & corrupt save games. Never the less I must have started the game 30+ times.

I loved the game and even managed to finish it as well.
But applying the patches was a pain. I ended up getting all the russian patches as well as they went up to a slightly higher number and it was playable.

White Gold was released in Russian AFAIK, and they were in process of translating it but never got to finišhing it. I was really looking forward to the game.

Buggy games? How about Worms: Reloaded?

Incredibly disappointed by it. It's still Worms and still fun, but really Team 17? It's basically Armaggedon minus the homing pidgeon plus a copious amount of bugs. The multiplayer setup menu is proof of that. Player's names and pictures often get swapped leading to horrible confusion, mouse based camera controls are buggy beyond all reason, and various items completely break sometimes (I'm looking at you land mine which I dropped from a ninja rope and saw go flying straight to the left until you stuck on a wall).
