Curse of Naxxramas was a bit of a let down. I expected the AI to be smart, instead it is cheating by being able to play multiple cards of the same kind and having overpowered Hero Power and health on Heroic mode.

Amnesia: Machine for Pigs was really disappointing.  I was expecting more scare tactics, and it didn't really deliver.  Pretty short gameplay too.

of the recent hyped games:

 

Watch Dogs - (nothing new of the table, boring boring side missions... wannabe)  Damn I was so hoping this game would be great, and I got bored of it in less then 4 hours....

Amnesia, a machine for pigs.. not really scary, not did i like the story/gameplay too much.

 

Both games I got on day 1 and waited for them for ages though, but I still think they were not as good as they could have being.

 

 

 

As for the older games:

 

Pretty much every Sonic game since Sonic CD.   I recently played Sonic CD and it is still more fun then any of their recent crap.  Even the high rated Generations, is nothing but a tribute to the original quality.

 

Unlike Mario, Sega just could not make one blockbuster after another.  

They could not get the formula right, while Nintendo kept pumping Mario 64, Galaxy, New Mario Bros, etc etc. Hit after hit!

A bit of a shame, they could not pull it off with Sonic.

Originally Battlefield 3's buggy launch was a large disappointment as was Diablo 3 but achieved a new level of disappointment with Battlefield 4.  Can't believe I fell for it again and pre-ordered ...

I can't think of a recent game I was disappointed in - I've been very positive lately, that and I can't complain about free games.
 

The last game I remember be wholly disappointed in was the recent Aliens Vs Predator. I had such fond memories of AVP2 and the joy it brought to LAN parties, but this game while not bad just never lived up to my expectations.

Unreal 2: The Awakening

Wow. Really? What exactly didn't you like about it?

I remember absolutely loving that when I was younger, then again I had no idea what that game was, so I went in with no expectations at all.

I expected a game that looked and felt like a sequel to Unreal.
