    I'm curious to see what you guys think are the most overrated apps in the app store. Personally mine is Super Monkey Ball. I think that the controls are far too sensitive, the gameplay is tiresome, and the game is far too expensive! Just my opinion however.

    Then you should get Super Monkey Ball 2. Far better.

    Ravensword, just didn't like it when everybody thought it was one of the best games out there.

    I agree, people like their games just because they're 'polished'. They do deliver excellent gameplay, however they're just not my type.

    This, i though smb was great, once i played it was so lame, aweful controls and the gameplay boring as hell, glad i am jailbroken

    Don't bother with it, 10$ that went to the garbage totally NOT worth it
    Apple should demand as a mandatory rule lite versions for apps that cost 6$ and up.

    tried it also, and its not much better either, i had such high expectations of the polished version of smb, smb2 but NO the controls still suck ass, and it is a pain in the butt to collect all the bananas, and the gameplay is pretty much lame as always

    Not to mention that devs blocked jailbroken users, we have to install swapmode from cydia to be able to play this lame ass crappy poor coded game

    THIS
    ngmoco games are the most overhyped games, yet they dont fulfill expectations. Instead of focusiong on improving their games they are to busy findinmg new ways to suck users/customers money.

    I mean they are milking uses with in app purchases like powercells for eliminate, a one time fee for unlimited powercells would be the best way to go, that's why i am ditching in app purchases developers focus more on ways of leeching money rather than improving quality of the actual apps

    I must agree with you about Rolando, however I think ngmoco did a great job with the sequel. It delivers everything it's predecessor didn't.
