Being mad bored, I thought I'd call attention to some games that I think got too much attention. This doesn't mean that I think that all of these games are bad (some I do), but as a whole, these are games that I expected a lot out of or that had been met with great praise, but that didn't really deliver what I expected in terms of quality. Disagree if you like, I welcome your thoughts!
MOST OVERRATED GAMES: (And no, I'm not including Call of Duty. Everyone knows those games are overrated, so it'd be redundant to add it here)
#5: Gears of War
-Now, I should note that I do enjoy the GoW games. The action is easy to pick up, but fairly deep, and the cinematic and tactical battles are more than a little thrilling. However, given the lack of features of the original, as well as a fairly weak/non-existant storyline, a poor script and voice acting, and a lack a multiplayer features and modes, I think that calling this game one of the best 360 games is a huge stretch. It's fun, but far from the immersive, addicting experience people claim it to be.
#4: Final Fantasy (the whole series)
-A series of games where the gameplay doesn't change at all, the stories adhere to all the stereotypes of the worst Japanese anime, awful writing (AND acting in the newer entries), unmemorable characters, and a long, plodding, suffocatingly dull pace. This is one series that needs to die.
#3: Super Mario Galaxy
-Reviews I've read seem to laud everything about this game, and are almost free of complaints of any kind. And while I enjoyed the game and appreciated it's art style, the gameplay was extremely repetitive. I never really found any level of immersion with it, and the game is also very easy. It's still a game worth playing, but while I went into it expecting a masterwork, it only really ended up being an average platformer with motion controls and some nice art.
#2: Sonic Adventure 2: Battle
-Sonic has been in a lot of stinkers, but other than Sonic 2006, this one by and large stands at the top. Besides having some of the most insulting audio in recent memory, over 80% has you NOT playing as Sonic, instead opting that you play as one of his crappy sidekicks. And whoever thought playing as Rouge or Knuckles and looking for emeralds with the games' sickeningly bad camera better have been fired from Sonic Team, though Sonic 2006 suggests that he hasn't.
#1: Street Fighter 4
-For all of the supposed depth that this game is supposed to contain, this manages to be one of the most shallow, featureless, and simplistic fighters in recent memory. There are almost no combos to speak of, the characters are all generic and boring, and there jsut isn't any rhythm or flow to the combat. It really is an awful game, go play Guilty Gear or even Mortal Kombat for a good 2D fighter.
