Guitar tone is indeed as personal as a haircut, or the amount of spice you add to your food... So at least some presets have to sound very bad (I would be worried if you like them all ).

Another thing to consider is the input level (too low will sound tiny, too high will never sound clean, so it has to be adjusted carefully) and the way you play: some people will play with lots of dynamics and other play more softly. So I don't think one can expect presets to work instantly out of the box without a bit of tweaking (be it Axiom or any other piece of software/gear).
