I lack in ways to express the idea that something is overhyped, overrated, has an overestimated value.
What I’d like to say is that a restaurant/place/book/movie/idea is advertised or promoted to excess, that even though it’s not that bad, it does not live up to its legend.
The translation should not be too ‘negative’ because when you say that a movie was overhyped it does not necessarily imply that it is a bad movie; it could even be a pretty OK movie depending on the context.
I know 過大評価 (an overestimation) so I thought of 過大評価される, but can it be used in this context? My gut feeling is that this word is meant to be used in such sentences as I overestimated the value of this car or something like this. And this word is a bit long anyway.
In case some exemple sentences are required, here are some:
名古屋城 is a nice castle indeed but it is vastly overhyped as far as I’m concerned.
This is the most overrated book of the XXth century. (Real sentence I just read in a press article.)
No Man’s Sky is not a bad game, but it was so overhyped that people couldn’t help but be disappointed.
