I've just played through John Romero's Daikatana. If you don't know about this game, which is one of the most massively over-hyped titles in gaming history, read the Wiki on it (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daikatana).
I've gotta say, this game could have been really good. After like the third patch, the sidekicks are not as useless, as they were in v 1.0, and some maps are quite impressive. Too bad that the game as a whole is inconsistent - just when you're starting to have fun, it kicks you in the balls with some terrible design and gameplay decisions.
And why did I bother playing through this shit?
1.: Probably because I wanted to share the frustration of players , who - at the time, when this game finally came out after 3 years - felt bad about waiting for a game, that turned out to be such a mess in the end.
and 2.: Because I love ROFLing at a game this bad.
Overall: A game that had potential, but was brutally fucked up in the end.
