    most under-rated games ever

    Since Jason started the over rated games thread, I thought it would be fun to see what everyone thinks are the most under-rated games.

    The one that I can think of right now is Viewtiful Joe for gamecube. I haven't played it all the way through but it's pretty fun. Not sure if it counts actually since it got good reviews, but it doesn't seem to be too popular.

    tribes 2. that game was probably the second best officemate vs office mates game ive played. of course quake 3 ownz joo all but is not underrated..

    command and conquer Generals. this game is a stellar rts which kept me from doing things i was supposed to be doing to the point where I literally had to break the cd.


    SmashTV....this game...ooohweee....big money big prizes...IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII..LOVE IT! of course I am dating myself with this one.

    I was that way with Starcraft (not that that game is under-rated). Then everyone at the office agreed to only play between certain times of the day alloted for SC, that worked for about a day and a half...



    There was a game for SNES called Legend of the Mystical Ninja. Really fun, cool gameplay (i'm still a sucker for side scrollers), 2 player coop, a good dose of Japanese wackiness, and even mini games when you went inside the arcade on some levels.

    -Valkyrie Profile- A very underrated RPG for PS1 by Enix. Great sprite animation, gameplay, characters, story, music, and extremely challenging battles.

    oo good thread

    duck hunt, c'mon...duck hunt fuckin kicks ass! :realmad: :barf:

    and ill back up jason on the tribes, tho i was more of a tribes1 fan..tribes 2 literally killed me and my buddys computers when we got that game...straight up ganked it...so i was a bit put off by that..

    then we got saturday night slam masters for the SNES, super bomberman for the snes, and NBA jam for the SNES

    oh, and i dunno if its underrated or not, but samurai showdown 2...one of THE best fighting games EVAR!

    those games were alot of fun

    NoUseFrAName >> Totally agree.
    Josh >> Devil May Cry 1, no other game I've seen has done what they did with 3d gameplay like that. And the entire Phantom fire scorpion battle in the church room, and the hallway chase, and especially the shadow cat battles on hard level, thats great stuff.

    second the vote for Mark of Kri...also Baseball for the original Game Boy. Buffy the Vampire Slayer for Xb0x (the first one...the second one sucked hard...cause of a camera that made it unplayable.)

    Lemmings

    I have to say that Lemmings was SO under-rated and so freaken awsome. It required patience and skill to get them all to survive. Ahh.. good ol' Lemmings the good thing about it was when you got angry you could purposely kill them off

    Earthseige 2.

    I don't even know if anyone even remembers it, but god is the game fun. And like 5 years old, but that only adds to its, uh, charm. Plus it has the best sound of any game, ever. Maybe.

    Sammy: Yes... a lot of those games are great!

    My most under-rated game runner up!

    Planescape: Torment

    One of the best stories in a game to date. Plus... those BlackIsle people were just so damn good at characters.

    My most under-rated (or really bought since it got so many awards)?

    Sacrifice:

    Just look at this beautiful art direction!

    Shame on all of you for not mentioning System Shock which is my favorate game of all time (I have played more Quake 3 than any other game though ). That game for me gave birth to the whole halflife, desux x genre has one of the best plots in any game.

    It is surprising that people are picking new games. What about games like dune 2. Even at the time the reviews gave that game 80% dispite it being the best strategy game out at that time and to an extent!!!! gave birth to the whole rts genre.

    You could mention almost any game by Looking Glass. Every game thouse guys produced that I have played has been brillient and sorely underrated.
