Days Of Thunder was thoroughly unplayable.

I haven't tried it myself, but Legends Of Valour seemed to have nothing but brain farts and dodgy things in it. Will probably check it out some day, just for laughs

That doesnt make it the worst commercial Amiga game..

In fact, its rather good. Way above average and the 3D engine worked really well back then, especially on a 030 machine. Also it was full of fun little quests and had a huge interactive, free-roaming world. Its just like Skyrim really.

Just like Skyrim? Hell, watch this interview with ES top developer Todd Howard:

http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/a...interview.aspx

For the linkshy (or those who can't view the videos at work) Howard cites Legends of Valour as an influence on the entire Elder Scrolls series.

Legends of Valour had variable height floors/second story buildings and "windows" well prior to the release of DOOM. What a great old game it was!

I love it. It really puts me back in the saddle with PC gaming.

Heheh, that's because they actually *were* done with AMOS ;-)

I see Rise of the Robots is hated, I must disagree though. It's one of the better Amiga beat-em-ups and one of the few games I actually bought, and I still play it regularly. Admittedly the disk swapping was annoying when playing from floppy, but that's pretty much unavoidable with a 880K DD floppies, and not really a fault.

In terms of bad games, maybe the Amiga port of Armalyte would perhaps qualify as one of the worst, it's absolutely awful. So is Hostages.
