    If you didn't like it all that much then it wasn't for you. It definitely was not overrated. The physics engine in that game is superb, the music is so far beyond what you'd expect, the gameplay is constantly changing, growing, evolving. Easily one of my favorite games this generation, just sad it was so short.

    I'll agree it wasn't all that challenging and nothing will ever top mario 64 but I still enjoyed it thoroughly. My roommate owns a 360 and Mario Galaxy and World of Goo were the two games he actually played out of my collection of wii games. He loved them both. Mario Galaxy 2 is probably my most anticipated game right now.

    As far as overrated games go I think No More Heroes belongs on that list. The mini games later on to collect money simply become chores. The only fun parts are fighting and fighting bosses, the first of which gets repetitive, the second of which is the only good part of the game. The open world is inexcusably clunky, and buggy, which craps on the better parts of the game for me. If it had just been 20 boss fights instead of 10 with better fighting missions in between and no open world it would have been far better.

    you all are going to eat my head off.

    Super Mario Galaxy and Super Smash Bros Brawl
    I bought both of those games, I traded in both of those games.
    They were great at first but then i just felt like i was repeating motions. It got old very fast in my eyes. Oh, and the original Mario Bros. I hate that game. So boring. I am more of a Super Mario World kinda guy. naw meann? :D

    I think Smash Bros can be overrated, people here can be obsessed with it. It's a fun game when you have friends over though. I haven't yet made use of it enough so it wasn't worth it for me but if I played it anywhere near as much as I played the N64 game I can see it being all manner of awesome.

    I'm not sure I understand how Mario Galaxy is so contested as overrated. Why? What did you think was worse than people said about it?

    Everyone says how amazing Super Mario Galaxy was and I really just think that it was average. It was fun to go from galaxy to galaxy for a few days but then it just got repetitive and kinda sucked. Everyone says that it was one of the "must haves" for the wii. I completely disagree, It failed to meet my expectations.

    Medal of Honour Heroes 2 - what utter utter complete garbage , controls ok,nothing special - actual game - Garbage!

    SSBB - Very good game with 4 people using the same console but try online and your in for a very upsetting time which in my opinion ruins the game.

    As for a good single player game - am absolutely loving little king's story.

    When I was not too far into the game, I thought the same things and had the same gripes that you did. However, I pushed myself to keep playing and am so glad that I did. Maybe its because it was my first 3D Mario game, but I really enjoyed that game. Not only is it one of the most brilliant, innovative, and memorable games I have played; it's also fun in its purest form.

    I'm not arguing or anything, but do you seriously determine the quality of a game based on its online play? For Wii!? Brawl has so much to offer, if you had given it a fair chance and taken in all of the features, you would have enjoyed it, I promise.:) But hey, you have your opinion and I respect that.

    WarioWorld was overrated in my opinion. The platforming got old and the whole entire game became predictable.

    so you're saying that you have never played Super Mario 64?
    I think most people will agree with me in saying that it is probably one of the top five best games ever. I have beaten that game countless times and it never gets old. You need to play that. Get it off of VC or buy an N64 just for that, it is worth it.

    And i have beaten SMG (because my parents bought it for me with my wii so it was my only game other than Wii sports) but even still, i never felt an increase in the amount fun apart from when you could fly, but even that got boring. Overall, I was disappointed but that is just my opinion.

    I think Super Mario Galaxy is one of the best Mario games ever made. It doesn't have the charm of Super Mario 64, but it's a great platformer nonetheless.

    Mario Galaxy was very enjoyable, I don't believe the game was in anyway overrated.

    Any of those half-assed made games that sell in the multi millions are the ones that deserve the overrated sticker. Production values seem to be a lesser factor when releasing games on the Wii...*sigh*

    I agree with RivalDestiny. Quickly produced games such as Red Steel, Medal of Honor, Call of Duty, and all sorts of other games based off movies or television shows sell like a handle of Jack Daniels at an AA meeting, while unique and well developed games such as Madworld, No More Heroes, Zack and Wiki and Elebits have to shave their price tags to 20 dollars to sell half as many copies as Red Steel.

    It's a sad situation really.

    I totally agree with you, but you simply can't put the CoD games on that list. They most certainly aren't half-assed, and they earn every cent they make due to their great gameplay and replay value. But I'm talking about the 360 versions, I haven't ever tried the Wii versions.
