We take a look back at 2010's biggest turkeys and shudder...

Being a games reviewer isn't all it's cracked up to be, y'know. Sure, you get to bum around on the couch for a living and get sent all the latest games for free, but for every Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, there are countless AAA flops and shovelware atrocities to plough through. Whereas you guys get to ignore these crimes against gaming, we're forced to play through them from start to finish. The horror...

2010 was a pretty good year for gaming, as our Best Games of 2010 roundup testifies. However, there were still plenty of awful games floating amongst the gems. In the following slideshow, we take a chronological look back at the worst games of 2010. To read our original reviews, click on the screenshot for each game.

Disney Interactive Disney Epic Mickey

Monotonous gameplay, a wonky and frustrating camera, and an underdeveloped campaign strip this otherwise creative and conceptually sound adventure of its "epic" status.

  • Pros:
  • Wonderful and gutsy concept that explores the darker reaches of the Disney universe, creative side-scrolling sequences, Mickeyjunk Mountain!

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
