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)

Re: Most Over Rated Games Of all Time!!!!

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.

Re: Most Over Rated Games Of all Time!!!!

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

Re: Most Over Rated Games Of all Time!!!!

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.

Re: Most Over Rated Games Of all Time!!!!

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

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

Re: Most Over Rated Games Of all Time!!!!

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.

Re: Most Over Rated Games Of all Time!!!!

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.....

Re: Most Over Rated Games Of all Time!!!!

a little unneccessary but definitly correct. Crap game. I also think all mario games are over rated, i just never got into them especially mario 64. I was more of a sonic the hedgehog guy.

Re: Most Over Rated Games Of all Time!!!!

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!!

Re: Most Over Rated Games Of all Time!!!!

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.
