I could say the same thing about Halo games. Sure, you have your online, but thats even more the same thing every time.
One playthrough on the campaign, and you never touch it again.
And the thing that really bothers me is single player in Halo. Great story? Its mediocre. The biggest thing Halo has going for itself is the online MP. Personally, I don't get what the big deal is about it, but whatever, people like it.
Now, as I said, the game isn't overrated because theres thousands/millions of people world wide who love this game and spend more time with it than having a social life(the little 14 year old kids who play it so much they know everything about every map). I will say it is overhyped. And I heard all about the biggest event in gaming history for Halo 3 launch starting earlier this year. The hype for this game was INSANE imo. Frankly, they probably could've just remade Halo 1 with the better graphics and more maps online and nobody would've cared.
