Overrated Video Games: Your Opinions
What game(s) have you played, that you felt got really good reviews or quite a bit of hype, but when you played it, it turned out to be boring, underimpressive, or just suck?
I've been listening to the Zelda: Twilight Princess OST (one of my favorite games) and it got me thinking. I bought a ps2slim two years ago, and since then had been looking around for good games and such when I came across a game called Shadow of the Colossus.
In reviews of this game that I read/watched, about every one I can remember said it was awesome, epic, and "kind of like Zelda with just boss battles and no item collection." Well, I bought the game from GameStop at some point and though it didn't suck exactly, I just wasn't all that impressed. Sure, there are no load times, the scenery is pretty and the colossi are fricken huge, but that's about all there is to it. At some point in the game, I stopped killing them for a while and just wandered around trying random things like standing on the horse's back and jumping into the air to grab on to a bird (which serves no purpose) just to make the game longer.
Maybe I'm underimpressed because I played Shadow of the Colossus after Twilight Princess came out (which I mention because people compare the two) when it actually was released a year before, and so I felt the graphics in Zelda were better anyway and didn't see the point in all the hype. Not to mention I was bored with Colossus's storyline, or lack thereof.
