Biggest letdown of the first half of the year?

Bulletstorm by a mile. Everything about this game is atrocious. Embarrassing characters and narrative, levels designed for coop campaign but left as-is after coop was removed, boring and repetitive gameplay that devolves into simply pulling and kicking everyone, frustrating coop that works better with less people playing.

All this and more is why Bulletstorm was the biggest letdown of the first half of the year for me.

I've been over this so many times so I'll just say Dragon Age 2 and leave it at that.

You expected Bulletstorm to be good?

I expected it to have solid gameplay, yes.

I'm not sure exactly. I haven't played anything this year that made me feel disappointed enough to crucify it on a gaming forum...

I'll take the generic route and say the Gears of War 3 beta for ending, until I think of a better answer.

I second Dragon Age 2. LA Noire was also dissapointing but my expectations were not very high to start.

What's up with DA2? I tried playing the first but couldn't get into it.

Most of the things that made Origins fantastic are just absent in DA2. It's inferior in every way except for graphics and arguably the combat. Is it a bad game? No, but I've played and loved every Bioware game since KOTOR and I do not expect mediocrity from them and that's exactly what they gave me with DA2.
