    Now, everyone is going to say what he liked and what he disliked.

    But anyway, I think overhyped is.....none A game that doesn't impress me doesn't mean it's overhyped

    While, underhyped games there are indeed, like Enslaved, Portal 2, Little Big Planet 1&2(yeah, it is underhyped. It is an outstanding franchise and worth more, so if you didn't play it because it doesn't contain blood, guns and zombies then this is your last chance) and Mass Effect 2(underhyped by the gamers who don't bother trying it cause the reviewers know its value). There could be more but that's all I can think right now...

    Overhyped: Call of Duty games: While not THAT bad they are just so generic.

    Underhyped: Mirror's Edge: First Person Platformer featuring Parkour.

    Underhyped - Enslaved: Odyssey To The West. A true gem of a game that really deserves to be more widely recognised.

    Overhyped - Battlefield 3

    I don't see whats so good about this series just another FPS with large maps......Another campaign that shouldn't even be in the game. Flat out boring to play.

    Underhyped - Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2

    This series never gets the recognition it deserves as "the best hack-n slasher of all time". Nice fast paced combat system, great graphics and a nice story to go with it. It might be because of the difficulty people stay away from this series.

    I agree with you on Final Fantasy 7 being overhyped. I guess I look at FF VII how some people look at Uncharted, it's good but I don't understand what everyone sees in it.

    Overhyped: Call of Duty: Black Ops. I don't see what so great about it.

    Underhyped: Enslaved: Odyssey to the West and Singularity; both of these are games you should hear about but don't, especially Enslaved. Pretty much what StewartBros said.

    Overhyped: BF3/MW3 - you can't go anywhere without seeing a ton of hype for these two titles

    Under: Uncharted 3. I know its gonna be a hit, but I haven't see much hype for this game other than the subway promotion and chatter here.

    I love all FF games and i must say i'am 1 of the ff7 fans but IMO FF13 was overhyped andin the end i think squaresoft really dropped the ball with it.
