What games do you think are overrated and which do you think are underrated and why?

 

For me, here are some games I think come in each category:

 

Underrated Games

 

New Super Mario Bros 2: It's not fantastic, but it really isn't that terrible either.  For all the originality lacking here, it's a good game at its core, the fun Mario gameplay is still there and it should at least get 7/10 for that alone.  To say otherwise is to basically prioritise the 'world content' over the actual gameplay.

 

New Super Mario Bros 1: People are way too harsh on this one.  Heck, for all the bashing the 'New' part of the name gets, it was actually pretty new and original for the time and tried to tie the world of the newer games with the classic gameplay of the older ones.  It's just that after four games, 'New' isn't really very accurate any more.

 

All the new Zelda games: The Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword... they get way too much bashing from people who seem to have some rose tinted vision of either Ocarina of Time or the NES era games and forget that the Zelda team and Eiji Aonuma can really make great games.  

 

Donkey Kong Country/series: It's not so underrated after Returns came out and wowed everyone, but these franchises get way too much hate for being associated with Rare or what not.  That and from people who seem to think of it as their life's goal to get back at games which outdid their favourite Yoshi's Island/Super Metroid and never just consider that the first three games were some of the best platformers of all time.

 

Donkey Kong 64 too.  How did a 6 million + seller go from a classic to a complete joke in such a short period of time?

 

And definitely spinoffs like Jungle Climber.  Many great games, yet less than a million people bought each of them.

 

Wario Land: What must be one of the most underrated Nintendo series of all time bar F-Zero, the franchise has some great games on the Game Boy and Game Boy Advance (and maybe Wii if you count that).  Yet while the reception has some generally great (although I still think reviews are way harsher on them than anything with 'Mario' in the title), the series has never really gained enough of a fandom to stand out.  Brawl basically ignored the series apart from stickers, the amount of forums about the series currently stands at exactly zero and we don't get anywhere near enough major articles about the series as we do Yoshi's Island or Donkey Kong Country or Mario or Sonic or Kirby or whoever.

 

Overrated Games

 

Super Mario Land.  Mario's a great series and the Game Boy is a great handheld, but whatever way you look at it, Super Mario Land is firmly in the 'meh' camp.  With just 12 levels, so incredibly poor physics and embarassingly terrible graphics and presentation, this game has been outdone by its sequel and the Wario Land series a million times over.

 

Mario Kart Arcade GP.  I've always hated how people seem to think these games is somehow 'better' than Nintendo's recent Mario Kart games given how boring the tracks are, how bad the item selection is and how... well, not fun much of the gameplay is.  It's probably because it's seen as 'forbidden fruit' to be honest...

 

Yoshi's Island.  What?  Don't kill me, I'm not saying it's not a great game!  It is... it's just not the second coming of Christ that some gaming sites like to think of it as.  Seriously, it's not 'true art' in some elitist sense, it's not 'perfection in video game form' and it's not somehow the best game of all time.  I also dislike how certain... 'fans' of the game seem to bash the likes of Donkey Kong Country, Super Mario World, Sonic the Hedghog or other similar games for being 'mainstream' or 'average at best'.  They're all classic games people, no need to bash another series because it was more popular.

 

Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games (any such title). No, they don't deserve 90% review scores, they're boring and often poorly done mini game collections with way too much 'waggle' and too many tutorials.  

 

New Super Mario Bros 2: Yes, it's possible for a game to be underrated and overrated at the same time.  This game is... decent.  Not fantastic, not terrible.  Just decent.

 

Super Mario Galaxy 1: Yes, even my first or second favourite game of all time can be overrated!  But yes, it's a brilliant game, has great graphics and music, some brilliant level design, a great general atmosphere... but it's again not perfect. No I don't think it's the best game of all time, I don't think it should have knocked Ocarina of Time of the best reviewed games list on Metacritic/Game Rankings, and it's got some flaws the sequel fixed (like the poorly done Rosalina story, the poorly done Grand Finale Galaxy level and some boring side areas).  It's a great game and a classic, but it's not the pinnacle of the medium.

 

So what games and series do you think are underrated/overrated and why?

Underrated: 

 

Every New Super Mario Bros. game

 

Sonic Unleashed and Sonic Heroes

 

Star Fox Adventures and Assault

 

 

Everyone seems to hate on the NSMB games, but I think they're all great fun. Sonic Unleashed gets a bad rap purely because of the Werehog sections, but while this criticism is fine for the Wii version (since the Werehog is about 75% of the game), the HD version's daytime levels are more than enough to make up for the nighttime. People also seem to hate Sonic Heroes for no apparent reason. It's a perfectly fine game. The Starfox games... people hate them because it's not a copy of Stafox 64 and there's too much ground time, but I think the ground combat is fun too.

 

 

Overrated:

 

Team Fortress 2

 

All Call of Duty games

 

MINECRAFT

 

Yoshi's Island

 

 

Never understood why TF2 is so popular, it seems no different from every other FPS out there, aside from some hats. Minecraft is the same, I get why people like it, but... it just seems boring to me. Yoshi's Island, I don't like that I have to carry Mario around all the time, I'd rather just be playing as Yoshi. That's why I think Yoshi's Story is the better game. Call of Duty... well, you know.

I agree with the New Super Mario Brothers 2. I Just bought it yesterday and beat it today. I enjoyed what I played but the game leads you to believe you will unlock a lot more than you really do. I was expecting if I collect every Star Coin and beat the game to get an alternate world and enemy design similar to the Super Mario World for SNES, but you get nothing. Getting the 1 million coins or maxing the coins does something but not worth it. I was expecting more from this game in terms of gameplay, but to be honest, although not bad at all, I much prefer SMB3 or SMW to this game.

 

 

UNDER-RATED

 

Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap: It was my favorite game in the Zelda series and so I say under-rated due to most people not liking it.

 

 

Elebits:  I love finding games as much as I love breaking crap, so this game placed two of my favorite things together. It got decent reviews when it launched but quickly flopped in sales. For a finding game it is rather difficult and has a lot to offer even multiplayer-wise. They tried to make a sequel for the Gameboy Advance or DS, I forget which - either way it played more like a Zelda wanna-be and a bad one at that. It was crap.

 

 

OVER-RATED

 

Metroid Prime Collection:  I couldn't stand how 3 played on the Wii and I even liked Hunter for the DS. 1 and 2 felt easier to control on the GameCube than they did on the Wii for me, as well. The story for Metroid Prime 3 was far too lacking for me to want to keep progressing and the deadly areas made the game too annoying, so I gave up.

 

Super Mario Galaxy: I disliked everything about this game short of graphics and sound. There really is nothing else for me to add to that. I feel it isn't bad just because I dislike it, obviously, but it didn't need the hype that it got. It is the same as I feel about the Kingdom Hearts series.

 

Super Mario 3D Land: Far too easy and some of the worst 3D visuals I have seen on the 3DS. It was the first game I played when my friend let me borrow her 3DS and it made me almost not wish to get a 3DS due to the eye-crossing 3D effect and lack of challenge.

 

Kid Icarus: Uprising: Just bought this yesterday and bringing it back tomorrow. The rail-shooter style gameplay is unimpressive and nothing new and the controls are clunky at best. The storyline is bland and simply a rehash of the original with a lot of jokes based on breaking the fourth wall of it being a video game and CG rather than the original pixels. some of the other jokes made me actually cringe they were so horrible. I DID enjoy the voice work, and graphics immensely, though. The voices were fitting and very well done and the sound was crisp and clear.

 

Pushmo: If ever there was an easier puzzle game I do not know of one. "Must have game for the 3DS" says IGN... "waste of time and money" says I. The level designer is nice, but once again the stupid QR reader rather than a simple game-to-game Wi-Fi transfer is used to trade them.

 

 

That QR feature always pisses me off whenever I see it. You have a 3DS with Wi-Fi capabilities by a company that wants to promote friends and family togetherness, then they remove the use of having a friend added to your friend list by pushing that QR BS into everything rather than allowing friends to send / receive via Wi-Fi!  So, if it counts, anything that forces you to use QR for trading as the feature is over-rated to me.

Wario: Master of disguise was underrated. It wasn't fantastic, but I'd give it 7/10 rather than 4-6/10 it got in reviews.

Did you mean Princess Tomato in the Salad Kingdom? Because even a google search of Princess Salad in Mushroom Kingdom brought not one hit up for me and I remember PTitSK from my childhood NES days and it was a great game for its time.

Yeah, I was hoping they would bring it to the virtual console but I doubt it considering it isn't a first party game. It got some of the best reviews when it released and I think a lot of people would like it to this day.  And as you said, it can get quite confusing at time. I never owned it, I had to rent it so I never got far lol

Borderlands 1 and especially 2 are criminally underrated. Incredible writing and atmosphere and great amounts of stuff to do. I've never sank so much time into a game. (Besides PSO)

The funny thing is I didn't really like Borderlands 1. I mean, granted my friend and I tried to beat it in one day, but that's all it had, but I just never got into it. Though the beginning song was pretty cool.


Anyway my list.

 

Overrated:

Super Mario Galaxy

Super Mario 64

Super Mario Sunshine

Portal 1

Minecraft

Medal of Duty: Modern Ops Warfighter 150

 

I like the first 3 games, but face it everyone loves them and they're overly done on Youtube.


Same for Portal. I mean 70% of Portal fans probably only know the game from "The cake is a lie." I'm not going to lie and say I'm not, but it's the only reason I know Portal. Hell you can ask anyone about Portal and one of the only few things they can tell you is "The cake is a lie," which honestly isn't very interesting any more. Portal 2 is much better anyway.

 

Underrated:

Pokemon Colloseum.

Gunsmoke for the NES

Banjo Kazooie, but it's starting to get a little overrated

Super Paper Mario because people don't like it for being too different.

Still doesn't mean they can't be overrated.  Call of Duty often gets great reviews, but people can still think it's overrated.  Ocarina of Time is seen as one of the best games ever, but quite a few would disagree about that.

 

Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 can easily be classed as overrated simply because they're not as perfect as some people make them out to be.

CoD is the same game every year. So its stuck with the same formula,that can't get worse,only better,which it doesn't anyways. Forever stuck with a game formula that just so happens to be the way people enjoy it,even if it is stale as hell and not to mention far from ever being the best game of this gen. It gets good reveiws but never the kind of reveiws Mario galaxy 1&2 received.(Mario is way out of CoDs league lol)

I understand what you mean though but opinions and philosophy aside,Mario galaxy 1&2 deserve all the praises they receive. Galaxy has been in the works since Mario64 and it shows. How often does a video game ever get 10's all accross the board? When you've made a game that's literally THE HIGHEST RATED game OF THE GENERATION,I definately think that says alot. (caps not yelling,just emphasis)

I understand this is all just opinions but...Come on Link and Nin,Come on! XD

Underrated:

The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap

Psychonauts

Spec Ops: The Line

 

Overrated:

Call of Duty: Black Ops (and its sequel)

Kingdom Hearts (please don't kill me, I've just never found it all that interesting)

 

It seems like every person in the world says Psychonauts is underrated. Not sure how underrated it can be with so many people backing it and such great reviews.

 

The amount of people saying Call of Duty: Black Ops and what not is overrated is also kind of silly. I rarely hear people say those games are good and it gets mediocre ratings.

 

I enjoyed/still enjoy minecraft a fuck ton, but it is overrated to shit. The amount of fun I've had with it could easily put it at a 10 for me, but then I realize that a good majority of the fun I've had with it was due to experiences created by other people or mods, not by the game itself.

 

Kinda feel the assassins creed series get's overrated, but I don't really like to say things are overrated as often I just don't like the games. They aren't bad they just can't hold my interest.

 

Underrated though Monster Hunter Tri and the Sonic Adventure series. Monster Hunter Tri would be the only game id actually come back to my wii to cock around with probably, and I bought Sonic Adventure 2 on steam even though the controls were shit just because I loved dat Chao Garden.

 

 

 

Overrated:
MineCraft
FPS genre
SSB:Melee(out of the 3 SSB's)
Mortal Kombat
The not so scary Slender man pc game
Anything that fag pewdiepie plays
League of Ledgends(YAWN)
Final Fantasy games(excluding Kingdom Hearts)

Undderrated:
PowerQuest(More of a hidden gem,really)
Billy Hatcher and the Giant egg
Princess Salad in Mushroom Kingdom

I agree with those two x 100. Well sort of the second one, you have to realize he occasionally does play a good game like Shadow of the Colossus or Bully. Sadly his fans just ruin the shit out of it afterwards. Either way he's a massive faggot.

 

I love League of Legends though. It just requires a certain type of person to enjoy it I guess, honestly I don't even hear that much praise for it. I hear people TALK about it a lot but never a whole lot of "Best game ever must play" sort of deal. I think people here are getting confused between popular and overrated. The song Friday was popular but everybody hated it. A more extreme example but point is a game can just be sort of fun and still be heavily talked about, just not praised.
