Top 5 Most Underrated Games

Hello, ladies and gentlemen! Are you looking for a unique, wonderful game, but have already played all of the major AAA titles? Have no fear, because this list is for you! (Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut, Metro 2033, Mirror's Edge, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Agree with everything except Enslaved. That game was crap. Replace that game with either Folklore or Binary Domain.

Just curious, why did you think it was crap? It had some glitches but it was a killer game IMO. The only other game I've ever played through 2 times in a row is Psychonauts.

If the main game was anything like the demo, then Andy Serkis's overacting couldn't save a game full of repetitive button mashing 'action' followed by a dose of spam the jump button to do some lame, can't fall off, find the flashing ledge platforming 'fun'.

All these games, aside from Deadly Premonition, were rather well reviewed.
I think a better title would have been "under appreciated" or "undersold", personally.
That said, pretty much every game on this list were favorites of mine from last generation.
Enslaved, Metro and Deadly Premonition especially.

Vanquish is one of the best action games i have played!

I got Vanquish free with PS+, after 30 minutes I was bored and never went back. What's so good about it?
InTheLab  +   168d ago
Same here. Actually after that boss from the demo, I was over it. The game just is t that good whether it's the mediocre shooting or the awful graphics.

Vanquieshed I found really good, thought short.

It was one of the few games i found challenging when bumping to max.
abzdine  +   167d ago
don't play it for 30min, it was same thing with me the first time i hated the demo until one day i had nothing to play and i bought it very cheap.
I played through the game i absolutely loved it.

i am really not into shooters and TPS but Vanquish is really good i liked the bullet time, the very well balanced speed in the game as well.
give it one more try and play it long enough.

If you finish it like i did with Mirror Edge and you were still meh about it then it's fair enough.

Resonance of Fate
Pozzle  +   168d ago
Yes! Yes! Yes!!

I never expected this game to be a huge success, but SEGA were fucking morons to release this game the same say as FFXIII. It deserved so much better. :(

Mirrors Edge <3 So glad DICE is working on the second one, even if it is a prequel.
Nerdmaster  +   167d ago
The camera in this game makes me sick after five minutes.
MrSwankSinatra  +   168d ago
throw in LA Noire, that game is massively underrated which makes no sense to me because it sold really well.
InTheZoneAC  +   168d ago
if it sold well it's not underrated...
kB0  +   168d ago
A game that didn't live up to it's promise...that's not underated.

It was a B rated game...and it sold pretty damn well for a B rated game!
InTheZoneAC  +   168d ago
No way in Enslaved or Vanquish better than Mirror's Edge.

Enslaved is fun but the whole theme and story seem generic.

Vanquish is fun, but it doesn't make me want to play it over and over again. And it doesn't help I have to watch the main character smoke in every cutscene. Highly annoying...

You know truly is a great game, story, gameplay, sound are all amazing...Brutal Legend. I remember K-Mart had this game for $5 a few years ago and I was like why not? I think it is one of the "best" games last generation. It is a complete game.
InTheLab  +   168d ago
Gonna pass on all of those games and throw in Starhawk.
kB0  +   168d ago
starhawk sold relatively well actually.
Knushwood Butt  +   167d ago
Relative to what?
kB0  +   167d ago
Compared to other games more deserving of a underrated game...
Knushwood Butt  +   167d ago
Starhawk sold relatively well compared to other games more deserving of a underrated game ?

Whoa, run that one by me again bro.
AnotherProGamer  +   168d ago
those games arent really that underrated. i see a lot of people talk about them. there are way more underrated games like Zeno Clash or XIII
MNIMAB  +   168d ago
add The Last of Us. It's underrated in the sense it still doesn't get the amount of praise it DESERVES. Its story puts most literary works to shame. I cared more about the characters than those in any game, film, tv show, or book. The gameplay was designed better than any mario or zelda game, which is saying something. The acting blows away anything decaprio or clooney could ever muster.

TLOU is truly entertainment's masterpiece
Razputin  +   167d ago
You need to get out more.

It won like 50 game of the year awards already. Relax it isn't that serious, and its only a game.

Plus half the copies it sold can't even be played. 30 minute load times isn't worth it.
Nerdmaster  +   167d ago
Can't tell if you're serious...
khdaface  +   168d ago
Nier...
isarai  +   167d ago
All except the last two get tons of praise
