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


The Top Ten

1 Super Mario Sunshine Super 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

How the hell is this game overhated? Practically everyone seems to like it from what I've heard. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

It was mainly back when it was released. And it is often dismissed for stupid reasons like voice acting. - HeavyDonkeyKong

Why is this game here? I don't here many people hate this game for FLUDD!

2 Sonic Unleashed Sonic 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

People go like "Sonic Adventure 2 is the best due to Sonic and Shadow stages" but they also go like "Sonic Unleashed is awful due to the werehog! " So let's do the math. They say Sonic adventure 2 is amazing due to 1/3 of the game being good (although it is actually even less due to how much time the other stages take to complete) but they say Sonic Unleashed sucks since only half of the game is good (it's actually less than half due to the length of werehog stages, but it's definitely more than 1/3 good! )
Logic? There is no logic with this (especially when you realize that the werehog stages are way better than the SA2 non-speed stages! ) There is no way Mario Sunshine belongs higher than this!

3 Mario Kart Wii Mario 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!

4 Shadow the Hedgehog Shadow 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

5 Sonic Lost World Sonic 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

6 Mario Kart 7 Mario 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.

7 Sonic Heroes Sonic 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

8 Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)

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!

It's like these morons don't know what research is, if they did they could look up "sonic 06 review" and understand why it's so hated and no, sonic 06 has 9 playable characters the most characters playable in a sonic game is in sonic heroes (12)

I would have actually loved it, but the bestiality ruined it. Why couldn't Mephiles kill Elise instead of Sonic? Then that bit (you know, THAT bit) wouldn't have to be there. - TwilightKitsune

Everyone just sees the bad things about this game and that's the problem

9 Super Princess Peach Super Princess Peach

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

Without Peach, The mario games will be about sewers.

10 Sonic Adventure 2 Battle Sonic 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.

11 Mario Hotel Mario 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.

It's called Hotel Mario but who cares it sucks

12 Sonic and the Black Knight Sonic 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

13 Super Mario Land Super Mario Land

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

14 Mario Party 7 Mario 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!

15 Paper Mario: Sticker Star Paper Mario: Sticker Star

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

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

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

Um, why is this game here?! This game receives very little hate!

18 Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

Yeah, I said it! This game is way too underrated for its overall witty presentation and traditional RPG gameplay of the SNES gameS!

19 Sonic CD Sonic CD

Not the best sonic I ever played but it sure isn't the worst, all because its on the sega cd, its like saying ssb4 sucks because its on the Wii u, really guys, also this game is better than sonic 1

20 Sonic R Sonic R

Tails Doll isn't really scary (minus that dumb Creepypasta reputation), but his eyes make him disappointingly ugly.

I can't argue with this because of (Shutters) Tails Doll.
