It's a decent game, but people don't half put it on a high pedestal, including critics and gamers. "This proves that games are art!!!" Ugh...
The amount of fetch quests you're sent on is absolutely staggering, especially when you consider how restricting the level design is. Combat and stealth aren't great. The twist is seemingly considered the best thing since sliced bread when it's not really *that* good. There's a noticeable drop in quality near the end of the game, and the ending itself is awful. It's also dumbed down compared to its predecessor.
The best thing about the game is the atmosphere in Rapture itself. I admit that is good. Overall though...I think the game is decent, but definitely not "best game ever" or "game of the generation" material.
D Overrated implies the game doesn't live up to the hype - the amount of hype for Red Dead was within reason and it more than lived up to it.
I would say the most overhyped game this gen was Demon's Souls, for sure it is a good game, challenging and fun but on the otherhand it is hyped up to be the best game in existence past present and future which it is not.
