View Full Version : Most Over Rated Games Of all Time!!!!

Here somthing that may be controversial. My most over rated game of all time is Halo and Halo 2. I have them both and im not saying they are bad games but they are really over rated and both are average at best. Im not a big Sci- fi fan and realise that everyone has different tastes in games but ive just never caught the Halo bug. I enjoyed Doom 3 and Quake 4 which are fairly similar, but Halos single player game is just not as good (in my opinion). I cant understand it, I want to really like them but just cant. Anyone else feel the same or am I the only one.


Is there any more games that have been really over rated. Fifa 06 (crap game)

I think Halo and Halo 2's single player campaigns are far superior to Doom 3 and Quake 4....not to mention the multiplayer of both Halo games, which is 100 times better. Halo/Halo 2 are in no way the most overrated games of all-time. They're highly regarded for a reason....they're great games.

For most overrated, I'm gonna go with anything that has to do with Gran Turismo. I don't see what the big deal is....I'm not a huge racing fan to begin with, but I felt that Forza Motorsport was a much better (cleaner and tighter) racing game. I don't see the deal with the countless wrestling/Tony Hawk games either....the same recycled ideas/concepts in every iteration.

Dont get me wrong, Halo2s multiplayer is excellent and still play that a lot but the single player game, in my opinion is a little poor, it those little aliens, the ones that run off when you come around the corner. The weapons in the game are too great either, but hey im not saying im right and your wrong its just from my experience of playing them which is probablly not as big as most peoples. I played both games from start to finish and never played the single player campaigns again.

But on a different not im a big driving game fan and love both Forza and Gran Turismo. They are the best pure racing experiences but if your not a racing fan then you probably wont see the point.

I agree totally with the constant crap sports games that EA though out although Fight Night looks great!!!!

I would actually agree with Halo and Halo 2 being overrated. Great games just overrated by a lot of people. Don't dare say that in public though. You will never post here again. ;D

dont think you can say fifa is overrated, but definately agree with Halo. i was bitterly disapointed with2 when i got hold of it.

on the 360, i think perfrect dark is seriousy overrated

Oh man, I played the HELL out of Gran Turismo 3. I can't really explain it either because before that I wasn't at all into the sim racing games. GT4 didn't do much for me though. I think I burned myself out on 3.

Most overrated game is pretty hard. I would agree with Minty about PDZ but I can't think of anybody I know that rates it that high to begin with. I never really got into Halo while everyone else seems to love it so I guess it's overrated to me. The DOA franchise is pretty overrated IMO too. I never understood the Super Smash Bros. Melee phenomenon either.

02-28-2006, 11:29 PM
PDZ the worst story ever but its not over rated because everyone knows the single player game is donkey poo. Multiplayer is good tho. Fifa is the game that bugs me because its rubbish to play and every sequal is vertually the same apart from a slight adjustment that makes no difference to the poor gameplay. It still sells in bucket loads and i dont understand why. Surely pro evo is the future.

FIFA isn't overrated cause it's crap ;D Wait for PES ;) Now thats a proper football game :o

Don't you just love the irony, that the best football game on the market calls itself a soccer game, ;D lol

Ghost Recon is very hard but i dont think it is over rated and cant wait for the new one. Crash badicoot was ok but its my wifes favorite game so i have to dislike it.

Dead or Alive franchise is pants too, its too japanese for me. Give me soul calibur or tekken any day.

the most one of all time?.... well, most recently, id have 2 say perfect dark zero. definitely a letdown on the single player, theyre damn smart 2 throw in a co-op mode. id have 2 say tetris. i mean, seriously, evry1 talks about how great it is (i think EGM or some magazine put it in the top 3 games of all time, maybe number one, i cant remember). i like my puzzle games, but seriously, its no match for donkey kong, super mario bros., zelda, metroid, ice climbers.....

Fable's hype pre-release was really bad....

And it wasnt exactly what everybody expected...

But as far as statictics goes for hype, If somebody can tell me the most overproduced and hyped cartridge based game. It's worth 100 Awesomeness Points. There's actualy a landfill dedicated to this game. It was mass produced because of hype and nobody bought it cause it SUCKED!!

Halo - Ok its good we get it. Not my type of game. Tired of hearing about it.

Donkey Kong Country - Yeah nice graphics and thats about it.

Madden - Same game every year with little tweaks and roster updates. And why do the players still look so fat?

P.S. Super Mario 64 is one of the best games ever.

I agree here with you. ICO was never popular or overrated. No one knew about it. Finally the word started spreading that it was a newer, fun game to play. More and more websites started listing it as a missed gem and then the fire spread and now every one magically loves it.

I do not agree with the statments of "Ico" being over rated.

Some people think it is, Yet they dont think "Halo 2" is over rated.

They think its just a Great game witch everyone should love no matter what.

Unlike "Ico" witch is a game that they think is over rated yet no one Knew about untill people TRYED to spread the word for people to play it...

sadly no one listend, they all where playing the OH so not overrated "Halo 2"

But people see the game in magazines or sites saying its a must play game(ico) so right away they think "oh this is so overrated why isnt halo 2 a must play"

something along them lines is what i was trying to get acrossed.

Now if this one didnt make since sorry keybord is still lame(i think it might be to small for me lol) and im pretty tierd.

I firmly believe Halo is one of the greatest shooters, but it soley depends on taste and when you bought it. When the Xbox was first released with Halo, it was a ball-buster of a game and I loved it for years. Halo 2 disappointed me, it was way over-hyped and the campaign was garbage. The multiplayer was average, but it only survived because the matchmaking system was easy for friends to play together.

Talk about bringing something back from the dead...... Wow! Over a full year old, I didnt think it was humally possible...

But while on this topic, I will say that I beleive that Resistance: Fall of Man is one of the year's most highly over-rated games, due to the fact that it gives PS3ers hope and something to hang on to...

I was one of those to contribute to the $150 million in pre-sales for Halo 2. I was also one of those to contribute to the 2.5 million on the first day, too bad Halo 2's story was a big let down. The game was rushed and nowhere near the quality of Halo 1.

Personally, I think Doom 3 and Quake 4's gameplay aren't that great. The weapons don't really have a feel to them, and the enemies are rather bland. Those are what makes a game for me. Guns that are fun to shoot and enemies that are fun to kill. Don't get me wrong, Doom 3 and Quake 4 are good games overall, but they don't seem to match the same aspect of Halo's campaign.

Now, a game that I think is overated...Half Life 2. I think that game sucks.

I think halo is over rated too? Whats so fun? A lot of levels you wander with few enemies for a while, when other games like Quake, Doom, Call of duty 2, Gears of War, and some other fun ones have great storys and your always right into the action.
