what PS3 or Xbox360 title do you feel is the most "over"-rated and which do you feel is the most "Under"-rated game.

Mine:
"Over" = MGS4 10/10 PS3
"Under" = Shadowrun 7.5/10 XBOX360

In the interest of speaking only of games Ive actually owned and played, not just read a review or played a demo of, I can really only list the 360 at this time.

Over=Mass Effect
Under= Bio Shock

While Bio shock made goty and has nothing but glowing reviews, its still one of the finest combinations of story, atmosphere, game play, and fun that I think I have ever experienced in a game myself.

Yeah, thats why I mentioned, "While Bio shock made goty and has nothing but glowing reviews." In my book even goty and glowing reviews dont do it justice...but then you asked my opinion, so you got it.

That's what "underrated" means. That the game was good, but not advertised much and/or rated high in the media.

Over..Any and all Madden Football (both platforms).
Under.. Burger King's Big Bumpin' for 360 :D .

I dunno, I played Lost Planet on the PC and I really didn't see much. It was generally hyped on the Xbox fanboy websites due to it being another Capcom Xbox exclusive.

To each their own, the game was decent, but definately not something I'd play through again.

Over rated: Halo 3 (360) Motorstorm (PS3)

What's wrong with MotorStorm? I bet if they downgraded the graphics to 480p and put Nintendo characters in the vehicles you'd give it a 10.

MotorStorm has awesome controls, graphics, sound, and physics. I love the floaty speedy gameplay element. When "catch-up" is set to on, the game gets pretty f'ing intense.

This game is awesome and got me addicted to Tower Defense Games.. One of the best arcade kinda games I have ever played on any console

Lost Planet was great, I thought the story was good and game play was solid. Nothing revolutionary but a lot of fun none the less.

That and Pocket Bike racer were a blast... Those games were very fun and for only a couple of bucks they just cant be beat..

:lol:

The AI annoyed the hell out of me, the environments were bland, and it just felt too sluggish for my liking. But yes, Nintendo characters would have improved it no end (no... it'd still be shit (not my thing), it's just Nintendo know how to make good games the characters in them add absolutely nothing as I don't personally give a crap who I'm controlling so long as he/she/it controls well)

As for graphics, underwhelming at best.

You'll find Burnout Paradise (unless the updates this year fix it big time) is another game I was very dissapointed, yet Burnout was hands down my favourite thing to come out of last gen. Also Burnout Revenge on 360 is still IMO the best racing game on any format atm.

maybe it was just not his cup of tea... I personally loved Halo 3 while others thought it was over rated, some get it some dont oh well..

I thought Dirt was a far better off road game than MotorStorm was, so I agree with Mike where as you do not..

Yes, DIRT was very enjoyable, I'm also looking into getting Sega Rally this week now that it's nice and cheap, have heard a hell of a lot of good things about that game and apparently the demo does it no justice whatsoever.

I still need to finish DIRT and once I do Sega Rally is next on my list for racing games..

Yeah the game was pretty good. I tried the demo on PSN and eventually picked it up great fun. The story is pretty good too, nothing ground breaking but definitely a deal at the bargain bin.:D

I didn't get on with Lost Planet at all when I had it on 360. Think my expectations were too high for it really after the masterpiece that was Dead Rising.

Lost Planet is the gaming equivalent to a shiny turd.

Sure, it's shiny. But it's really a turd.
