Default Re: The most overhyped games...

i agree on HL2,doom3 and even oblivion being over hyped,but after playing MMORPGs since UO i belive WoW has alot more to offer compared to other MMORPGs,im not the kind of guy that plays the same MMORPG over 1 year tho,ALL games after a period become more of a bad habbit or a chore,but WoW kept me going for a year,and no other mmorpg have kept me intrested that long.

MGS2 was, IS, a genious piece of art. I really don't care who I play as long as the story is good. And MGS2 was preety immersive. And being said to be more like a movie than a game preety much proves it.
If you didn't get to a point you actually wanted to put down the controller and stop playing, than its immersive, no?

Unreal 2; BIGTIME

HL2

Doom 3 - should have never had MP, otherwise it ran smoother then quake 4
Quake 4 - suxed bad textures and horrid MP lagg, I was so dissapointed I was lost for words.

The game was so bad, I don't remember the name of it anymore. But with what happened, way over-hyped.

As I remember, when the game (sorry, forgot the title, just remember what happeneed), hit the shelves, people weren't buying. Places like EB, Gamestop, etc were lowering prices on it. It ended up among the first $24 or $30 as a new game, that still wouldn't sell... Before all was said and done, the game company fired the development team... Before then the game was hyped up until release...

I'm gonna go by hyped and didn't live up to it, and Half-Life 2 and Oblivion and MGS2 and Diablo II and all that lived up to the hype, so forget those.

Games that didn't live up to the hype:

Tribes Vengeance
Doom III
Quake IV
Unreal II
C&C Renegade
Deus Ex II Invisible War

IMO, Quake 4 single player was exactly what I was looking for/expecting from the Quake series, which is a good thing.. I thought Q4 ran smoother than D3 too.

MP was a let down though.. If you join a good dedicated server, with good ping, the netcode is fine..

Its just that the game itself seems to have horrid FPS in the big CTF levels..
