What's everyone's opinion of the most overrated games (Klik or Non-Klik)?

Don't get me wrong... I like it and own it, but I think Halo is probably the most overrated game. Sure, it's pretty. The gameplay is pretty standard, though (although the vehicles are a nice touch). As much as I like this game, I still think it's overrated. Plus, I finished the game on the first two difficulty settings in the same week that I bought it. You get tired after shooting 200 of the exact same enemy time and time again. Multiplayer still rocks, though.

Need For Speed Underground is very overrated. It's just like any other racing game, only with Nitrous Oxide boosts chucked in to give it a vague relation to "Too Fast Too Furious". Driving around in circles (or squiggly lines, depending on the track - same shit, different bucket) for hours and having to restart if you stuff up just once (in most occasions, one stuff up will make you last in the race, or at least in a position that you won't catch up in time, like with most racing games) just isn't for me. And if you're good enough to unlock the next car, you can do it all over again, but faster! Yay! This may be a biased opinion, though... as I don't like any racing games unless they're based around multiplayer fun and have some form of weaponry or at least something other than racing, ie. Mario Kart.

Who's got more?

yeah Halo
it's TOO and ENOUGH repetitive.. the graphics are nice and the engine is good too, I like the vehicles, but what the fuck, it seems you're walking around in circles in some levels. the one in which you follow the robot is plain stupid, always the same stuff and that fat monster. couldn't play multiplayer though, it should be good

I bought my younger brother an X-Box for his last birthday. I would have bought one much sooner, but I just can't find any good games on sites that look interesting. It just appears that X-Box has too much of the same. It's either, what, a military spy game, a racing game, or a big robot game? I keep going around asking people for good X-Box titles, and all I keep getting is "Umm... You know, Halo's a really fun title!", and I'd always tell them back "Umm... and...?"

It's nice to see he's having fun with his X-Box, though. He's bought several titles for it, but I have never laid a finger on the X-Box or a controller for it ever.

Most overrated Click game? Easy. Eternal Daughter. -_-

Why? I dunno. No matter how perfect and glamourous of a game people make it out to be, it's just a big broken thing with pretty flowers and sparkles around it. That's why I haven't beaten it yet. =o

Overrated Klik game: Eternal Daughter. It's graphics are amazing, but the engine feels really sloppy.

Overrated Recent Commercial Game: Sonic Heroes. This game is pulling 8's, and yet it doesn't even hold a candle to the original Sonic Adventure released on Dreamcast 5 years ago.

Need for Speed Underground's great - it's like a Ned simulator (don't know if that makes any sense if you don't live in Scotland) - get a cheap car and completely ruin it by adding unnecessary spoilers, skirts, neon and flames down the side.

I think that MGS2 is rather overrated. I liked it when it came out, but looking back on it it really isn't nearly as good as the original, it doesn't seem to hold together as a game very well without the original's innovative (and bizarre) use of the physical PS console itself in moments like the Psycho Mantis fight.

I'm not really a fan of the later GTA games, I could never really get in to them... perhaps it's just me, but I think they worked so much better in 2D.

A lot of the new games are overated. I can't list them all. Although I haven't played them, here's some game I think are overated:

-the new Sonic games
-movie-based games

Damien M, if you're gonna insult me, do it right. Stupid Kirby "I own every console cuz I have a job and money and you don't" Smith would suffice.

I'd say that any 3d Mario game is overrated. Especially Super Mario 64. Sonic is the only platformer that retained enough of its luster when it went 3d. Sunshine was a little better than 64 with the additional freedom. But nothing will replace a flying Yoshi...

Overated games? How about:
Halo
MGS2
Eternal Daughter
GTA Vice City
Movie-Based Games
Most new Sonic games

I think the old Sonic games are a lot better than these games. Why Saga? WHY ARE YOU MAKING THESE CRAPPY SONIC GAMES?

Hey Darman, it's been reported that the next Mario game they'll be working on will be based more on classic style game play rather than the stuff they've been putting out recently. I could bare with Mario64 and I'd run around repeatedly in the world there just bouncing and flying around, but Mario Sunshine just stretched the limits to my taking the Nintendo company's Happy Happy Joy Joy game necessity attitude... if Yoshi's Story on the Nintendo 64 didn't do it first. ><

Anyway, I hope the next Mario game that Nintendo released is based on platform with lots of power ups and levels... rather than five levels with ten missions each.

I think the main problem with Sonic Adventure is that it was more in-depth than the old platform games and gave each character more... well, character, and Sonic had an American accent that sanded off two layers of my laminated coffee table.
