1-1.9 – Unplayable
This is the bottom line, only shared by the worst of the worst. There is no hope for the game.

This ranking concludes that the game can be played but the only fun you may have is if you enjoy being miserable. These games are better than the worst games but not by much. Games like this are painful to even bring up in one’s thoughts and, if done, it’s almost disgraceful. It would be like getting penicillin shots for fun if you are into that kind of game.

The game simply missed its mark. It could mean a variety of different things, such as the idea is there but they just executed it poorly.
