2013's DmC: Devil May Cry by Ninja Theory wasn't actually a bad game. In fact, it was a good game. Unfortunately, it just wasn't Devil May Cry.

The original Dungeon Keeper is widely considered one of the most influential titles of all time. The reboot? Not so much.

Repetitive, uninspired, and drab, Bomberman Act Zero felt like a gritty and mature reboot done for the sake of it.

If there's one good thing to come out of the SimCity debacle, it's Cities: Skyline.

The 2008 reboot of Alone in the Dark went the episodic route and focused too much on combat.

In 2007, Microsoft decided to reboot Shadowrun as a first-person shooter title and things just went sour from there.

The 2008 Turok reboot was a bad game that shouldn't have made it to market.

2014's Thief reboot wasn't a bad game. It just wasn't a good Thief game.

The 2015 Need for Speed game was plagued with problems regardless of how gorgeous it looked.
