"Trigger Man" is a video game of the third-person shooter genre released in 2004 by Point of View.

In 2004, it was rated as Nintendo Power's Worst Game of The Year, making writer Alan Averill state, "If I had a choice between playing Trigger Man and getting kicked in the junk, I'd seriously have to think about it." [http://au.gamespot.com/gamecube/action/triggerman/player_review.html?id=540786]

*All guns make the same sound
*Only eight levels
*Only eight weapons
*The player's inventory can hold only 2 guns at a time

*Bland artwork
*Bland missions
*Music stops and starts at specific times
*It takes ten shots to defeat someone with the handgun.
*The player has to throw knives more than shoot guns
*Textures are only partially solid, opening up several ghost worlds
