    WHAT THE CRAPPINGTON! RARE ISNT OVER-RATED. THEY PRODUCED SUCH CLASSICS AS GOLDENEYE, KILLER INSTINCT, DONKEY KONG COUNTRY, BANJO-KAZOOIE, CONKERS BAD FUR DAY AND THE STAR FOX ADVENTURES.

    Also take Grand Theft Auto out cause thats a good series.

    I don't know about games but there is one film that I always laugh about in terms of ratings.

    Spiderman 2.

    Spiderman was rated as a 12 and Spiderman 2 was rated as a PG. Even though Spiderman has one itty bitty swear word and Spiderman 2 has plenty of scary moments not for little children like when he was in the hospital and they were going to cut his mechanical arms off. He then used the chainsaw against them and slaughtered all the doctors.

    Also, if little kids can't wait the first film, what's the point in jumping into the sequel?

    Anyhooo when i hear overated I think of many games but one game in paticular FF:VII. I palyedi t when it was it, but I mena WTF!! its not that good its not the best game ever whats up with that.
    Another game i think of not because i think its overated but the amount of topics made about this on every froum i ever been to of course I'm talking about OoT. Now that game i could understand why everyone was going on about it.

    i think donkey kong country was overated for its time,it brought just great graphics,but esencially the same gameplay than a mario game.

    resident evil(remake for gamecube) i think was underrated just because it was a remake from another system,that game actually has enough new material to make it almos a new game.

    and my #1 underrated game of all,Dracula x for the turbo duo(japan only)thats the best castlevania ever.

    I don't agree that warcraft 3 is over rated, but i highly agree that world of warcraft is, my favourite under rated game is soul calibur 2/3 , everyone knows of the tekken series, and when people talk of soul calibur just being 'tekken with swords' its just an insult to the series. The way the whole combat flows and how the gameplay is highly balanced is just superior to other fighting games i have played. I mean, soul calibur 3 barely sold like 2 copies (I bought 1)

    you lie *points a finger*

    WoW is too good to be true.
    And certainly rare and gta cant be overrated....he lies too

    although reviewers wouldnt class them as underated, i dont think many people think much of Burnout or Timesplitters. great games.

    id put halo as over rated, but i havent played it, and when i get a 360 next month i'll probably get it. although a graphically sound game i think gran turismo is a little overrated.

    other than that...i think most over rated games are probably not half bad if you actually play them, and its not from a genre you dont like.


    and for the record, yes, animal crossing is underated. but it is also boring

    I agree with Halo being overrated. I own both games and wasn't driven to even complete them. The multiplayer is pretty good though.

    Over rated
    GTA
    Halo 2.

    the originals of each of those games were great, ish, ... but then they just milked the name for every bit of money they could get, and still are doing. I got bored with halo 2 and didnt finish it, same with every GTA since london.

    Underrated:
    Diddy Kong Racing.
    Quest 64

    Diddy Kong Racing is still my favorite game ever made. I played it so much my bloody cart ended up breaking. I constantly had friends over and we were playing that (and some SSB). Excite Truck *might* change that, we'll see.

    Quest 64 was an awesome game, and I hope it comes out for the VC. It was simple, and it worked. The battle system was a bit tedious at first, but it becomes the main reason you want to keep playing later on. I still have memories about this game. Good memories.

    I know LoZ: OoT was a good game, but I could never bring myself to play it all the way through. I got out of the forest, went to the freaking farm and pretty well stopped playing around there. Nothing about it really said "Hey try this, it looks like fun!" to me after that point..

    I completely forgot about that game it was awesome althouhg the combat system was a bit strange to begin with it was still very creative. It was all great to have another adventure to play after I'd beaten OoT
