What game do you think was most overrated by critics and reviewers? Something you assumed and expected to be awesome but just did not carry out with it?
I made this thread cause I've just tried out the first S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game, a generally well reviewed game. It got an 8.5 from gamespot, and a 8.2 metascore. I can't stand that game, even after about 6 hours of trying to force myself to enjoy it. The storyline and atmosphere are awesome, but its a first-person shooter, and bottom-line is, the shooting mechanism sucks ass. Shooting is absolutely no fun. The pistol is pretty much useless, the night-vision doesn't help see enemies to the point where it's easier to be guided it pitch black by the crosshair colour changing colour on enemies. Wish the game's shooting worked like a rainbow six game. Nothing is more frustrating than when controlled bursts miss 90% of the time, but spraying your round long-distance somehow gets kills..
Don't know if I'll be able to finish this game..
