Hallowed Legends: Samhain
I can't remember if I read any reviews before purchasing this game, but I wish I had read the lowest rated reviews. The only good thing I can say about this game is the graphics are excellent. Obviously, the game looked good at first or I wouldn't have purchased it, but it quickly went downhill. The nonsensical story line goes literally and figuratively all over the place. First of all, I hate back and forth games. I can take a little toing and froing, but this story was so disjointed and poorly conceived that I had a hard time remembering why I was doing anything. There was no logic to anything. The settings and storyline were bizarre to the point of just being ridiculous and stupid. I had to consult the walkthrough many times, partly because nothing made any sense, partly because I wasn't enjoying the game at all and wanted to get it over with as soon as possible. I hated the mini games and ended up skipping them more often than not. This awful game felt like it would never end. (Speaking of the ending, that was bad, too.) I thoroughly hated it.

Wish I'd Read the Negative Reviews
I bought this game without trying it, based on all the positive reviews, but I can't even finish it. The story doesn't make sense and the game play seems really jumbled. I kept playing, hoping it would end soon, which is never a good thing, and have finally decided to pull the plug.
