Bioshock was NOT getting 10/10 reviews! Anyone who thinks bioshock got overhyped only hyped it themselves. Alot of people were interested in it, what was shown before release was pretty unique, we knew it was using next gen graphics, and that its water effects were supposed to be the cream of the crop...but thats it.

Halo3, its hard to beat microsofts multi million dollar advertising spree and product tie ins. Only movies got that kind of treatment.

I think some of the console magazines gave bioshock perfect scores.

Every game that the masses seem to like and I don't is overrated. World or Warcraft comes to mind and anything else made by Blizzard.

I disagree. About once a year I get a hankering to replay Baldur's Gate II, and IMO it's the best RPG ever made to date. It's RPG perfection. It's a ton of fun when I replay it, and I can't think of a single thing I'd want to change about it.

I mean, there's really nothing quite like slaying the red dragon fikarrag (whatever) and grabbing the 2 handed Holy Avenger of his corpse.

CoR the game is freaking awesome. No hype, great graphics, great story line, best game adapted from a movie that I've ever played. And better than the movie. The storyline in the movie was ghey IMO, I liked Pitch Black much better.

As for most overrated game? Its hard to say. There are so many games hyped outta the world today if it ridicules.

I thought Doom 3 and FEAR were pretty overrated.

Both good games, but... meh... the gameplay didn't change at all after the first couple levels in either game.

To be honest, I thought Quake 4 was pretty underrated. I had more fun with that than Doom 3, yet it scored significantly lower at most review sites.

Doom3 avg score was 87.5 and FEAR got a 88.9; not sure how I'd call that overrated.
