10 games that were underrated by the gaming press. (Culture)

"Why did Ryse receive such bad scores? I don’t know. My guess is that it is too easy, but yet reviewers also seem to hate on games for being too hard."

Legitimate submission.

Erudite, eloquent and well-reasoned, for starters.

ps. but yet

Naw, its just too easy for reviewers to slander Xbox for easy hits. Or to give a popular game an unpopular "score".

Says the guy, when MS got awesome props for the release of the 360 hardware.

Agreed. Ryse never recovered from its graphics being that good. Haters looked for something to damage control and they needed something fast(during/after E3). QTE was perfect for them. The anti XB1 DRM propaganda snowball effect kept this game under after the truth came out about Ryse(real-time, not QTE)

First of all I just want to say I really enjoyed it and hope there's a sequel. But I think to be fair it's probably because the expectation is higher for a next gen release and other than graphically there's nothing next gen about it really. If this was just a 360 game people might not have been so harsh.
That's just my opinion though. Also It came out the same year where all the last gen games were incredible.

And the reviewer didn't just focus on one console either. I have a feeling that I like many games the critics do not, and I hate many of the games they purport to "love."

Damage control.

Some good choices. Lost World is an abomination though.

The Swapper is so underrated that is not even in the underrated list.

I have to agree, Ryse is a wonderful game with a good story. The combat is a little simple, but enjoyable. The game is nothing like the negative press it was given. This game is the poster child of next gen sleeper hit

RYSE is a great game. I think that you got so many people trying to bash it before it came out, when it came out and was really good they couldnt backtrack so they underscored it.

I love the combat... It has tact and skill and looks great. You can BS through some of the combat but when you start really controlling things like getting tons of double executions the game is just amazing. Another thing they dont talk about is the pacing of the game is really good. If you are just playing it and not trying to focus on how to nitpick at things you move from task to task in a very fluent way..... lie youll be fighting barbarians than breaking through traps then trying to stop them from burning your soldiers then you will figt some more then you will get the scorpion then you go into shied formation than you fight a boss..... Its just paced really nicely and i think that as been lost in its reviews.

Exactly, one thing I noticed was the pacing. It has a great pace, the boss fights weren't as simple as the combat, and I found myself getting my ass handed to me a few times.
I even like the fact that one of the levels involves the Colosseum

Seems like this is a list of the more terrible releases. They're not underrated in any way.
