What games were hyped as the best, but went down like the rest!

I've had a few but I really want to know what you guys think.

Maybe this will teach us a lesson for future hyped games.

I would have to say that Mummy's Revenge game. Lol jk
MGST was way overhyped and turned out to be just mediocre to good. And
2xl supercross would have to be put on this list as well since the devs never came through with the content update that they said they would.

The Force Unleashed. Kroll. Spore.

Those were the biggest disappointments in App Store history.

I personally love Rolando, dunno why do you think it is overappreciated, I think the attention it gets is well-deserved.

Star Defense is ok, traditional TD (= no revolutionary new towers) with interesting brand new graphics. Overall, Yes, this one was a little bit overhyped, but it didnt really "gon down as the rest"

Spore = fail, I agree.

On my list dominates Flight Control - I really don't get whats supposed to be so fun about it, after a few mins of playing I am yawning already.

I agree CJS was hyped and now has a 3 star average. Those others all have a 4-5 star average in iTunes.

I know we're talking about opinions in the first place but this thread is looking to turn into a "Popular apps you don't like" thread, whereas I think it's meant to be more for games receiving a lot of pre-release huzzah! and then being universally panned. Not sure Rolando or Peggle really fit.

That's how these threads always go.
