So yesterday I finished Viking: Battle of Asgard, fun game.  When I got to the final boss, I was super disappointed.  The final boss was just a Giant (an enemy in the game) with the the final boss sticking out of the head.  That's it.  It only have one new move, it could breath fire.  I beat the final boss in like 30 seconds, it was very disappointing.  Viking aside, what are some other games that have disappointing final boss battles?
 
P.S.  The reason I put Potential Spoilers in the title is that people will probably spoil the end of games in here.  So watch out for spoilers.

inb4 Fable 2 even though most people don't understand the whole point of the entire scene.

Eternal Sonata.  Sure it was a pretty susprising boss (at least to me) but man...he was a lot easier than the one before him >.>

Fable 2 has a wicked ending in some senses, though. Although I agree the Actual "Battle" isn't all that great. The Giant Shard is pretty cool though.
 
SPOILERS!!!!!!! Possibly.
 








 
I Mean, Think about what Theresa does? When she said that, I was like WHAT, and that made the game worthwhile to me.

Ugh, Viking... 
 
Bully's final boss fight was a little disappointing for me.

#6 Posted by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -

NyxQuest, in that there is none.
FF8, for being so damn easy. 
FF10, same.
Bionic Commando, again due to the lack of one.
Fallout 3, since he died in a fraction of a second.
 
That's pretty much all I can think of.

Dead Space (personally, i thought those fucking acid-leech necromorphs, or the ones on the walls who spawned little ball-morphs were a harder enemy in the game).

i thought ultemecia was a bitch of a fight (then again, my main party were all level 99..)

Probably Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. For a game with so many epic boss battles, Dark Samus was a huge disappointment in comparison.

@JJOR64: Really easy, although that game was a bit to easy the whole way through

Bully did have some easy parts but, it was a great game.

@JJOR64: I freaking love Bully, I beat it like 6 times and 100 percented it twice.
 
Bully 2 on Rockstar's current tech haunts my dreams.
#13 Posted by SuperSambo (2885 posts) -

Gears of War 2 - Anyone who has played it will probably agree.

#14 Posted by Black_Rose (7785 posts) -

I also forgot Tyrant in REmake. Damn that was easy.

#15 Posted by jakob187 (21757 posts) -

Fuck all of that.  How about the fact that you can kill pretty much EVERY boss in Assassin's Creed WITH A FUCKING THROWING KNIFE?!

Agreed. The "boss" was easy to beat, and the game was easy most of the way through, but a great game.

Fable 2 really disappointed me.  It was extremely easy, and you don't even realize it's the final boss battle, so it leaves you expecting more.

you must've had the cheat codes on...cause i remember the throwing knives in AC sucking massive amounts of diq.
#20 Posted by ShaneDev (1696 posts) -

Killzone 2 had a decent story and a nice feel of some what realism until the boss when i thought i had been transported back to 1997  
 
I really hated it :(

#21 Posted by Metasin (219 posts) -

Lost  Planet, the final boss battle felt like it came from another game entirely.

Crap.  I totally forgot about that one.  Should we even call that a boss?

No, the throwing knives were awesome. It was my main weapon for most of the game.

The final boss in Resident Evil 5. Started off cool, then after a couple of QTE's it just made me go, WTF?

#26 Posted by ArbitraryWater (12106 posts) -

Wesker in RE5 is actually a really hard final boss... until you figure out that you can kill him with a Quick Time Event.

#27 Posted by natetodamax (19219 posts) -

Gears Of War 2. The final boss battle wasn't even a boss battle.

#28 Posted by Burns098356GX (1366 posts) -

Gears of War 2, it just some random occurance that their Brumak happened to become lambet. I dunno, it was a neat idea I guess, but left me feeling unsatisfied.

#29 Posted by dbz1995 (4790 posts) -

Killzone 2s Radec. The hardest part is defeating all his henchmen. Once its just me and him, its plain sailing.
Also, Spiderman 2's Mysterio. I SWEAR I KILLED HIM IN ONE HIT? WHAT?

Yeah I was about to say the same thing. I didn't even think it was a final boss.
#31 Posted by Icemael (6364 posts) -

Lost Planet. Most of the game's boss battles were fantastic, but the final boss was actually the worst. Oh, and Gears 2... that boss was a fucking joke. I mean, seriously... did the people at Epic really think it was a good idea?

#32 Posted by Red (5994 posts) -

I can't really think of any game I've actually bothered to finish that ended up giving me a bad final boss. 
I guess Halo 3 had a pretty terrible final boss, but it wasn't that disappointing as the bosses beforehand were pretty bad, too.

Sonic 1. Goddamn. Press Left + any button, Right + any button, Left +any button, Right + any........Oh forget it.

#34 Posted by gingertastic_10 (4141 posts) -

The new Prince of Persia. You basically run from it not fight it.

#35 Edited by SilvarusLupus (310 posts) -

Prototype. It took me soooooooo long to beat it that I just lost interest after dieing the 20th time.

I don't even remember the final boss.
#37 Posted by WitchHunter_Z (882 posts) -

Halo 2's was pretty underwhelming, brute with a hammer and shield? Boring. 
Mass Effect, geth Saren was just a bitch; two shots with explosive shotgun rounds and he was down.
 
Can't think of any more off the top of my head, so I guess I wasn't disappointed by that many.

Indeed. Oldschool games are still kicking my thumbs.

Sonic Adventure 2. Because Biolizard was hell of harder than Final Hazard for whatever reason.

  • KOTOR 2
  • Fable 2
  • Devil May Cry 4 (cool concept with the giant statue, but the way you killed him was just boring and felt random)
  • Tales of Symphonia - Boss' second form involves him inexplicably pulling some aquatic mech robot out of his ass for no apparent reason - despite being a fricking ANGEL - and then being weak as shit anyway.
  • Infamous

I thought Infamous had a pretty good boss, and I thought it was surprisingly challenging given the level of the game up till that point. 
 
I would say the original Ninja Gaiden when it came out on Xbox (not the black version). After everything that had come up to that point, Murai died simply by spamming one move.
 
And then God of War. Don't get me wrong, it was a great boss battle as they go, but as they'd been building up the whole game to kill him, I thought he was kind of easy and anticlimactic.
#42 Edited by nrain (1274 posts) -

Shadow Complex...I mean wtf. Terrible, anti climactic and the ending afterwards offered the briefests explanation ever; hideo kojima would have a stroke seeing a plot get resolved like that lol. 
Still a great game though.

RE5, MGS4, Fallout 3

I can't believe you made it through that piece of shit game. 
#45 Posted by CL60 (16906 posts) -

The ending of Fable 2 was meant to show that the apparent big bad boss guy was just a regular guy without any super type of power other then he found the spire and judging from the beginning and what happened with your sister and you, he was only doing what he thought was the right thing to do. So I don't see why so many people miss this and say he shouldn't have died in one shot. That was the entire point of the encounter.

#46 Posted by vexx919 (72 posts) -

the world ends with you's  end boss really disappointed me, wanted an psychic battle with whathisname with the suitcase 
 but instead it turned out to be (basically)  a  top down shooter with a dragon

#47 Edited by Wes899 (2126 posts) -

Any game  that flips the rules/controls on it's head. Lost Planet was guilty of this (There must be others, but I'm blanking on it).  FF7's last fight was obviously pretty easy, though I don't know if that counts.   
 
SPOILERZZZZZ 
 
 
I also dislike games that don't really have a final boss of any kind. Shadow Complex did this.

#48 Posted by Asurastrike (2174 posts) -

Fallout 3. I blew the guys head off with 1 shot.

#49 Posted by Blubba (527 posts) -

How can nobody have mentioned Wind Waker? Super easy. Resident Evil 4 is also pretty easy. Super Mario Galaxy takes the cake though. It's just another iteration of a Bowser fight from before and it felt like it ended too quickly.

#50 Edited by FluxWaveZ (19388 posts) -

Bioshock, Saints Row 2 and Bully all had bosses that were way easier then they should have been (except for maybe Gary from Bully, but it was somewhat anti-climatic).
