Top Ten Most Overhated Super Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog Video Games


The Top TenXW

1Super Mario Sunshine

Why is this game number one?! It is definitely not a bigger highlight in Mario's history( but it isn't bad either), but this game was still accepted by most Mario fans! I swear sonic deserves an entry at number 1 far more than Mario. I barely see any hate towards Mario games despite that Mario has also had problems, but I swear Sonic's fan base is far more unforgiving than Mario's fan base.

How is this game number one and Sonic 06 number eight? This game was actually good. This above Sonic 06? No. - Iamachamp

This game is not overrated. This game was good but I don't hear peolpe say it is amazing best game ever.

Better than Sonic 06.

2Sonic Unleashed

This is overhated because people don't like the idea of Sonic being a hedgehog-werewolf hybrid. I find this game mediocre. I don't want no mediocre. Don't want no mediocre.

It has great combat, puzzles, challenge, bosses, and great level design

This should be number one LOL super Mario sunshine is amazing compared to this

This game is underrated

3Mario Kart Wii

Um, what is this game doing here. I don't know anybody who hates this game! This is a great game no question, but it doesn't get much hate at all! For that reason, I do not think this game should even be on this list!

It actually does get a lot of hate for how the items work and the retro courses. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Why is this game in this? It's awesome!

4Shadow the Hedgehog

I love the game! Stop being so negative people I mean seriously!

This is one of my least favorite games

There's a character named Nack The Weasel in Sonic series. When Nack had a gun, fans didn't went insane. But when Shadow held a gun, fans went crazy. - Delgia2k

5Mario Kart 7

Um, why is this game here? I know few people who don't like this game. This is a great game, but I don't think it gets enough hate to qualify for this list.

6Sonic Lost World

It's not a Galaxy rip-off. Galaxy took elements from Super Mario 128. This took elements from Sonic Xtreme. See the difference? - HeavyDonkeyKong

It has an acrobatic system which can help stop cheap death because Sonic can also grab edges.

I actually really enjoyed this game, sure its repetitive but its really fun

How is this 12? This should be 1. It's one of my favorite Sonic Games and gets unfair hate. - DCfnaf

7Sonic Heroes

I liked it. The only problem was the abysmal camera. - Garythesnail

This was without a doubt one game underrated by critics like IGN or Metacritic, but when nearly every fan says this is the number one underrated game, it gives me the feeling that it deserves a lower spot ( no, I'm not saying it is bad by any means.)

How is this number six on your top 10 sonic games it was 4 that deosnt make sense

8Super Princess Peach

It's actually kinda fun just too easy in my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Without Peach, The mario games will be about sewers.

9Sonic Adventure 2 Battle

Its seriously the same thing as sonic adventure 2 what's so bad about that? The improvements? The minor improvements? Yeah that's what I thought! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Why is this game here?! This game is just as overrated as the original SA2! Like the original, only Sonic's portions are good.

I like the battle one more.The multiplayer and other features different.It isn't the same as the original. All stages were good except last story and space levels.Sure the story was garbage though.

10Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)Sonic the Hedgehog, trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is the title character and protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by Sega, as well as numerous spin-off comics, five animated shows, and an animated OVA.

What is this doing in this list?! This game is awesome! Great music, amazing new characters, great level design, only game EVER where Sonic died! This game has it ALL!

The sonic game with the most playable characters

Good soundtrack, great animation, good characters, just very glitchy - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

11Mario Hotel

This game honestly suck DONKEY BALLS!, this is the WORST Mario GAME

But you have to give it respect for being the god of YouTube poop.

At least it is playable though it could have had voice acting from the cartoon.

12Mario Party 7

Mario Party is actually a lot of fun and this is my favorite one in my opinion! - HeavyDonkeyKong

I love this game! I grew up with it!

13Super Mario Land

This is actually fun Nintendo had ideas from country's and areas

14Paper Mario: Sticker Star

A VERY OVERHATED game but is quite a good game although it actually passes mediocre

I think this game looks like a lot of fun. - Garythesnail

You can have some simple fun with it. I didn't like it but you will enjoy it. - DCfnaf

This is honestly the best Mario game there is, if anything it deserves more attention than it recieves.

15Sonic and the Black Knight

I don't understand how this game is hated more than secret rings. Sure the idea of Sonic wielding a Sword sounds odd, but at least sonic kept his speed unlike the werehog in Unleashed (not that the werehog was bad). In fact, I really liked slashing the crap out of every enemy at high speeds, and I LOVED playing as Shadow, Knuckles, and Blaze in story mode. And most importantly, the controls are EONS better than Secret Rings, along with improved graphics, an improved soundtrack, improved voice acting, and even included some stages that, SPOILERS, were inspired by sonic's days before wielding a sword (if you unlock them post game that is). And to those that say that the homing attack is useless, you actually have to use a homing attack on enemies in those stages because the sword actually does not work on enemies in those stages. Overall, while it does have a few problems like tiring out arms (which should only be a problem if you swing too hard or to frequently because I've played the ...more
