Over Hyped - Diakatana
Over Rated - Company Of Heroes

While still a fun game, after playing the Dawn of War series, I found that Relic went a step back with CoH. The graphics were awesome in CoH but the actual gameplay was boring to me. It felt like a dumbed down DoW (at least as far as the tech tree goes).

I'm Sorry I am going to have to go with Bioshock, I mean it might just be me but I just never really fell into the game as I did Half Life 2 or World in Conflict.

How can anyone say Half Life 2 was overrated? It is one of the best FPS shooters of all time.

Doom3 could possibly be my 2nd over hyped game. I mean it did make good on its graphics for the most part (But it WAS to damn dark, my theory is the restriction on light sources so it could function at playable frame rates on budget and mid range dx9 cards), but it really didnt bring anything new to the table, and infact we lost the mob zergs. However like most of id's products, they didn't put much money in advertising except the usual banner ads.

Quake4 was a better game, but imo where doom3 atleast got me to win the game, I lost interest in quake4 because it pretty much looked like doom3 with the lights on. Btw I think quake2 was my favorite. While I spent more time in quakeworld playing team fortress then any of the games, quake2 was actually the first and only game that got me to make levels for it. Q2 was a pretty colorful engine, especially compared to quake1 which for some reason, never shook that drab brownish or green look.
