In short: Yes. People give WF too much praise, regardless of the game's quality. (Hotel Transylvania on 3DS anyone?)

I find myself constantly loving their art style, character designs, etc.

But when I played Mighty Switch Force... it was boring. Sure the visuals were top-notch, as well as the music; but the levels were all pretty blah and doing the same thing 15 times with little change isn't very interesting.

Haven't played either Shantae game, so I can't say whether or not the stories there are any good, I know for sure MSF could've used one.

The story is: Your a girl robo cop, and the blonde sisters are causing havoc after escaping jail. They escape every 5 minutes, apparently.
I liked Mighty Switch Force. I'm able to get par times on the levels.
My main gripe with the game is not enough levels, but that would probably lead to some poor level design here and there. It's easy to spot when developers don't give a crap, sometimes.

After playing that expensive shantae dsiware and not liking it at all, yeah I think they're kinda overrated.

Shante wasn't for me either, not a fan of the Castlevania II: Simon's Quest inspired game design or the controls. After about 2 hours i finally called it quits. Couldn't stand to play it anymore! However like Phillip said, Contra 4 is a MASTERPIECE. I'd rank it 2nd place in the contra series, only being up classed by the NES original. Any fans of the A Boy & his Blob remake for the Wii? That's another along with Aliens i have yet to play on the DS.

I also didn't really care for Mighty Flip champs, Mighty Switch Force on the other handy hand i feel warrants the 8 & 7's it's been receiving. By no means is it great(could of been with some bosses, more stages, a little more variety in the controls + gameplay and few more music tracks ect)

I'd say Mutant Mudds actually beats out Mighty Switch Force overall.

WayForward is probably "overrated" as a studio, but I consistently love their art design and find their games to be usually worth trying.

Agree that Contra 4 (DS) is amazing.

A Boy & his Blob (Wii) has some minor design issues. Some transformations aren't as good as others and the puzzles are generally too easy (although maybe that speaks more to the target audience than the game design). However, it's extremely charming and totally worth playing if you don't mind excessive cuteness and a low difficulty level.

Aliens (DS) was a weak experience overall, but good as fan service and definitely had some cool moments. Plus the end credits are awesome - almost worth the price of admission. My suggestion: only get the game if you are a big fan of the Aliens franchise and/or find it at clearance pricing. I paid $10 and don't regret it.
