The Most Overrated Shooters of All Time

The Most Overrated Shooters of All Time
Shooter games were officially "born" when id software released Wolfenstein 3D in 1992. The thrill of being "the hero" was intoxicating and shooter games quickly became an explosive genre (no pun intended). Since then, we've seen first-person shooters implement other genres such as RPG upgrades and/or horror elements that keep the games riveting. However, sometimes developers really miss the mark and screw up what is a pretty straight-forward concept. Here's a few of the shooter games that were overhyped, underdeveloped, or just plain sucked. 
10. Counter-Strike: Global Offense
10. Counter-Strike: Global Offense
Counter-Strike: Global Offense was the sequel to Counter-Strike that no one needed. That's because it was identical to the first one. When players realized they'd paid full price for a game they essentially already owned, all hell broke loose.

9. Turok: Dinosaur Hunter
Turok: Dinosaur Hunter the comic is a very complicated story involving Native American time-travel. Fans expected the video game to be a blast but were disappointed by how boring hunting dinosaurs can get in the blink of an eye. And since the game offered absolutely no other goals to peruse, the game got old quickly. 
8. Battlefield 3

Battlefield 3 is a military first-person shooter game with great graphics and lots of guns options. Sounds great, no? Unfortunately, developers over-marketed the game, rolling out a campaign a year before the game itself was released. This would have been cool if Battlefield 3 broke the mold in any sense. But when gamers realized the game was nothing more than glorified advertising, they were annoyed. 
7. Doom 4

Ah, Doom. When it was first released in 1993, it set the world ablaze with its 3D graphics and ground-breaking technology. Unfortunately for Doom 4, not so much. Doom 4 could have been great if it weren’t for another case of over-hype and a failed multiplayer mode which was highly annoying.
