Recap: 5 Worst Games in the month of May 2017

It’s two days and counting in June, Tekken 7 just launched and everyone is excited to get their copies! While Bandai Namco’s launching of Tekken 7 is a success, let’s take a look back at last month’s run. We have great games like Prey and Injustice 2 that came out, but there are still games that actually flopped and disappointed a lot us in the community.

Here is the list of the 5 worst releases of last month:

Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover IslandIt’s a Ratchet & Clank inspired game by Right Nice Games did have potential as a 3D platformer, but it never lived up to what it needed to be. Even if the platforming mechanics were great, the lack of its character development pulled it all down. Which is why it deserves its spot as the least worst game last month.

Sirus Score: 6.5 / 10 [Read the full review]

NBA PlaygroundsA game that would have lived up to succeed NBA Jam, but it didn’t get there. There are numerous moments when shooting in NBA Playgrounds is just difficult as cutting small bits of cheeses. It’s more of like a hit or miss for players, and even the slightest – like we mean very slightest – release of the analog stick, you can hold back and pray that it will get inside the ring.

Sirus Score: 5.9 / 10 [Read the full review]

Demon’s CrystalsThe twin-stick shooter re-release on consoles was another flawed title. Fortunately, the game’s on-the-couch coop can give some player a reason to get it, but overall, the lackluster of its overall product is not worth your time.

Sirus Score: 4.0 / 10 [Read the full review]

STRAFEAs it feels unfinished, STRAFE is also too reliant to its marketing campaign. It’s better to just play Brutal Doom instead of this flawed title.

PerceptionAlright, this is a game that we didn’t receive yet from PR; but with all of Perception’s hype about a new style of survival horror from a blind woman who actually “discovered” an abandoned mansion. The game mostly received negative responses from the press, citing that Perception didn’t “deliver on any of its promises” and “falls short of its ambitions”.

Sirus Score: Pending
