Reboots have been a fairly common sight of late. That's no surprise, especially since we're in the early years of a new console generation. Whether that's a good or bad thing depends on on your take. Reboots have always been a hit or miss proposition, with some of them emerging as faithful exemplars of what made a series great, and others falling pretty flat. Today, we're examining the latter type. These eight reboots just didn't make the grade.

Think we missed one? Tell us what it is in the comments!

Turok (2008)

The Turok series was one of the best on the Nintendo 64. No big surprise, considering that everyone loves taking on dinosaurs. The PlayStation 2/Xbox/Gamecube version was a letdown, and the series went away for a while. In 2008, Propaganda Games made a reboot for the PC/PS3/360 that tried to resurrect the franchise, and failed miserably. It changed Turok from a Native American warrior to a generic muscle-bound guy, as well as adding poor AI and a terrible story. Instead of resurrecting the series, it pretty much killed it off.
