Worst tech team ever in a studio.

#1 Posted by Arkthemaniac (6535 posts) -

Every game Pandemic has a hand in is riddled with bugs, glitches and deficiancies, Mercs, Mercs 2, Battlefront, KOTOR 2, all of them have unforgivable technical farts.

Anyone else notice this?

I've probably seen worse. How about the makers of Jumper? Or are they not a "tech team."

#3 Posted by Arkthemaniac (6535 posts) -

Okay, "worst tech team that makes games people actually care about".

I dunno... GSC Game World make stupidly buggy games (Stalker).

if you dont know they did than you cant blame them. Kotor 1 had some serious technical glitches and I know pandemic didnt do a thing on it. Kotor 2 had pretty much the same problems

KOTOR 2 was designed by Obsidian. I don't remember hearing anything about Pandemic. By the way, I LOVED KOTOR 2, not nearly as much as the original mind you, but I really enjoyed that game. That's coming from one of the most diehard KOTOR fans out there. Battlefront is also an amazing game, so is Mercs.

I agree with you, both KOTORs are great games. But this does not change the fact that they both have many many bugs and glitches.

Enough to say that they are the worst tech team ever?

Exactly. I'm not criticizing their games, as I've played a lot of Mercs and Battlefront, but their level of polish is negative.

Pretty sure the team behind Big Rigs wins by default.

I feel a bit sorry for Pandemic. A few years ago, when Destroy All Humans, Mercs and Battlefront were being praised tehy were one of the most impressive emerging studios in the world.

Now look where they are.

I have to agree though, except DAH wasn't as bad as the others.

What do you think happened?
#18 Posted by AkumaX (248 posts) -

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say EA, but I think by the second DAH they'd lost it.

Pandemic needs to make another Full Spectrum Warrior...badly.

#20 Posted by AkumaX (248 posts) -

I never liked FSW for some reason. Ten Hammers was pretty much the same as the first though, so maybe this gen's tech would do it a bit more justice...

@BiggerBomb: They tried to do the same thing with Destroy All Humans, but the humor got lost after the first couple games and it just became a series of awkwardly unfunny racial jokes. Mercs 2 was promoted heavily but didn't sell as well as expected, and as for Batllefront, well, idk cause i wasn't really following it.
