I'd agree the reviews were overly positive, but I think that about most game reviews these days, GTA 4, bioshock, some of my favourite games, but the uniformity of opinion given the difference of opinion amongst regular gamers was...unusual at best.
Worth noting as well that a lot of the Halo 3 hate came from people that owned neither the game or the console. Not that I'm saying it's flawless, because it clearly wasn't. It's just games like that tend to be targets for system wars.
