Although the Xbox 360 has the highest software attach ratio ever for a video game system, many exclusives don't sell as well as they should. Here are the top five most overlooked 360-only titles.
Those aren't overlooked games, those are bad games.
You forgot to add "In my opinion" to the end of your sentence. ;)
I agree with all of those choices expect for Culdept Saga and Earth Defense Force since I haven't played them. Blue Dragon wasn't that over looked persay, but it didn't sell 2 million or anything like that but it did well enough to get sequels.
Viva Pinata is a great game, despite the childish outlook it might be a bit too advanced for most kid gamers. Earth Defense Force from what I'm hearing is brutally hard!
Those are bad games. Blue Dragon was terrible, Viva Pinata was terrible, Chromehounds was terrible etc etc.
Banjo Kazooie, Lost Odyssey, Beautiful Katamari, these are overlooked games that were great.
Viva Pinata is a really unique and enjoyable series. It's like a little ecosystem simulator. I can tell you haven't played it and you're just running your mouth as trolls always do.
Viva Pinata was great. I played Chromehounds online for like 2 months and had a blast with it. I had a chance to get that Earth Defense Force game for like 5 dollars but I didn't know anything about it so I passed.
I liked Blue Dragon's old school gameplay, to me it was a nice game. I think Cylon was just looking at reviews at determining if the game was good or not. Chromehounds is one of those cult games.
Earth's Defense Force is one of the greatest 360 games. Did you ever play it? It's less than $20 at gamestop if you're lucky enough to find a copy.
It was mediocre at best. Banjo Kazooie: Nuts&Bolts was a bajillion times better than Viva Pinata.
Viva Pinata is more overated than overlooked. Chromehounds is old and is a primitive game. It's not relevant to go back and play Chromehounds. Blue Dragon is overated but people who like anime, punk, and rock. Lost Odyssey is in all ways better than Blue Dragon.
What in your mind makes it a bad/mediocre game. I can understand people not liking it due to the type of game it is or its art style. But to out-rite call it a bad game seems unfair when it doesn't do anything bad. It's a unique game and in my books that already gives it an advantage in this age of "me too games".
so just because you don't agree with cylon's comment he's a troll? geez people are retarded nowadays. i hate the word troll. that sh!ts for nerds!
They certainly are corepred4, they certainly are. :)
Is Earth Defense Force 2017 a downloadable title or is it on disc?
Actually, both Viva Pinata and EDF2017 are great games. Viva pinata might not be for everyone, as those looking for blood and gore, or a deep plot, won't be satisfied. However, if you are looking for a game people of all ages can enjoy and features some pretty nice graphics too, most notably the artistic design, you will be hard pressed to find something better than VP. As for EDF2017, the low production values and repetitive gameplay might be too much for many. but if you dig under, mostly if you are playing in co-op, you are certain to have a blast. Actually, this game had some bad review scores, however, if you actually read the reviews themselves, you will notice that many reviewers removed points for graphics and sound, while praising it's simple yet addictive gameplay. Considering it's extremely cheap nowadays (can be found for less than 5$ at some places), I'd say you owe it to yourself to at least try it out.
EDF is a great game but overlooked?? Not really its a very niche game thats all.. As for highest attach rate statement... That was a long time ago near the beginning of the 360s life and every console has a high attach rate near the start of its life. Its not longer the highest.
Blue Dragon was ok, but the rest were good. I still own them and play them. try it before you knock it. And i know you Ps3 users are just mad you dont have them lol
EDF is cool. Just don't go in thinking you're going to be playing Mass Effect or Gears or something, because you will be disappointed. The game made me laugh a little more than anything else. Yeah, play it for lols!
I think EDF may have lost a bit of its charm sense the early 360 days, before we had horde in gears of war... Also, that indie game called Creed Arena could probably take even more of its thunder away.
The rest of the games really aren't my bag, but I'd say viva pinata is the most polished and closest to AAA status.
And herein at Number One lies my favourite 360 exclusive.
They need to bring it out on Games on Demand or what ever they call it, the game is getting some buzz (mostly due to podcasts like Rebel FM, 1UP, etc) and the only place to find it now is the used market, it isn't easy either.
Yes, bows head...EDF is all about fun...played that game many times with my kids via split screen...that game is a how to for collision detection...lol...It's like a 1950's B movie you would watch at a drive-in theater...definitely a cult hit...I wonder if they would ever consider a remake...with on-line...I've traded in many games, can't trade that one in...not worth anything but priceless to the kids...Have all console with all the top titles...EDF one of the funnest titles...glad to see others enjoyed it.....
Earth Defense Force is crap. I played that game for an hour and was done with it.
I loved Blue dragon, didn't think it was overlooked?
Earth Defense Force, hell yeah!
Totally agree with EDF and Chromehounds, both games deserve more attention. Where is my EDF sequel??!!
If only =( I'm still optimistic though
I'm still waiting for Sandlot's Wii game, forgot what it's called now, you know which one. But I seriously want a fourth instalment of EDF action! If you know your EDF games, you'll know, if Sandlot just mine some of the ideas out of Global Defence Force (The second in the series), put the amazing skilful jetpacking Palewing in, add online. Instant awesome sequel.
http://www.youtube.com/watc... i been looking for it, but they never have it at the stores i shop at.
I made a tribute music video for this game a while ago, to Prodigy's Invaders Must Die, I bought a game capture device just to do it and only did it a few months ago. Contains spoilers at the end though, so y'know, don't watch unless you've played EDF2017 until the end. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Zangeki No Reginliev. That's the game Cajun... and it looks awesome.
Thanks, I just couldn't be bothered Googling the name of it, it's a trick one, I have NO idea how to pronounce it either. I actually hope, when and IF it gets localised that it'll revert to being 'Dynamic Slash' again, that was a great name and as simple as 'Earth Defence Force'. If Nintendo fail to bring that game to EU (and US, of course) they'll be forcing a person to resort to custom firmwaring his Wii. I'm really hoping this turns up under a new name at E3 and DAY ONE, no kidding, I say it a lot and don't get games 'Day one' but I've seen the Youtube vids and it looks just brilliant and enough to tide me until the next EDF. I want Sandlot to make my Wii melt with overload.
Earth Defense Force was great. The Coop was done well and the sense of scale in the game was amazing. The buildings/robots/ships/explosi ons/aliens were all huge and there were hundreds of guns. It was lower budget sure but thats all the more reason to give it the respect it deserves considering what they accomplished.
And sorry Cylon, but you don't know what they hell you're talking about. You say the games on the list are bad and then you talk about the new Banjo Kazooie being great? That game was pure trash and it was absolutely nothing like the N64 games. (Just like Perfect Dark Zero, Thanks RARE!)
EDF 2017 was the sh*t! Co-op would have been AMAZING....they really should have included it in the game.
It had two player split screen, close enough.
I know...but splitscreen sucks, and I can't play that with my online buds anyway. :(
well personally they are just terrible games
I'd say; Over-G Fighter (horrible story but the best Jet sim out) & Ace Combat 6 (again story was not good but it's the best arcade style jet game out this gen).
Splinter Cell DA online was also really good along with a challenging story.
Virtua Fighter 5 ONLINE was kool as well.
Shadowrun was a lot of fun too! Too bad the company went defunct.
I Loved EDF 2017, initially I was skeptical because the majority of my Games (And my Favourites) are serious, however, due to my Fondness of Third Person Shooters and the games more Fun, Simplistic approuch, I had great fun. I played through the game on Co-op, I was dissapointed with the lack of Online Support however. And was incredibly dissapointed with the Graphics (that's right, good Graphics are necessary for me, sorry) but was able to look past it. The game was a Blast and the huge catalogue of weapons kept me playing for a number of playthroughs. Another Installment would be greatly appreciated.
oh please stop the bullsh!t, except forza, fable and halo 3 which sadly were mediocre games, 360 doesn't have real exclusives. don't fool us 360 owners i hate people lying.
Ps3 is crap..!
LOL PS3 has had nothing but an interactive movie and God of War (6hrs) 2.5 this year.
OK, so all these have been released: - MAG - Heavy Rain (or as you said interactive movie, very clever!) - God of War III (2.5!? Are you crazy? The game was at least 8hrs. I took about 10 hours.) - MLB 10: The Show - White Knight Chronicles - Yakuza 3/ Yakuza 4 (in Japan) - Should I mention the superior version of Final Fantasy XIII? Yes, I think I will! Then coming very soon and later this year: - 3D Dot Game Heroes - ModNation Racers - Gran Turismo 5 - The Last Guardian - Most likely, a lot more. What's the 360 had this year that isn't available elsewhere? So before you go on about how PS3 has had nothing, take a look closer to home.
I liked blue dragon and Chromehounds, everything else I don't really care about. Viva Pinata, well it's not a bad game... I'd probably like it A LOT more if it were an original IP instead of a licensed game.... Culdcept Saga, well I just don't like this game, at all. Earth Defence force 2017? Heard of it, never played it though since it doesn't seem like my style of game at all.
what a shame, 360fangirls over there are drooling with crappy games such no taste really what kind of gamers these guys i am right now laughing, maybe newbies so they have not played the finest games ever made which are available only on the ps3 so sorry bots over there stay behind while we play the best and true next-gen games only on ps3.
LOL! Theres a reason why those games are overlooked!
They're all crap. If they were any good you would have heard of them. Seriously though I had 3 out of the 5 and they were crap. One mans crap is another mans treasure and all that, but I doubt it. Really, you haven't heard of them because they're not worth buying.
EDF was sweet. A sequel would need online coop play and more importantly... BETTER VEHICLE CONTROLS!!!!
EDF is a horrible game in every traditional sense but fun factor. There's just something amazingly fun about blasting those bugs with your friends.
Oh wow, I remember Earth Defense Force 2017, was one of the first 360 I ever played, awesome game. Viva Pinata is also great, though I must admit I never played Trouble In Paradise.
anyways the only game on that list worth a mention is viva
Chromehounds never satisfied my need for a mech game comparable to Steel Battalion. But it was very fun. It is the only game I ever traded in and repurchased.
Blue Dragon and Viva Pinata are great games. Never played any of the others though which I guess fits into why the writer wrote his opinion on these.
Anyone who can make a statement like that has probably yet to feel the warmth of a woman's skin.
You really are becoming a nuesance on this site, critisizing other people constantly, look at how many ignore you, grow up and get a life before critisizing others.
On Topic: EDF Was good.
haha, EDF 2017. AWESOME GAME!!!
Wait, they actually came up with five exclusives? I thought 90% were multiplatform, and the other 10% were Halo/Gears games.
I agree with EDF and Viva Pinata but the rest are just bad games. None of which are original.
sony is just flat out better then the xbox in every single way makes better stuuf better games and smarter people natal is garbage im not gonna look like a retard swing my arms around and just take note just like how the ps2 killed the xbox the ps3 in the long run will nail down the xbox 360 unless you get games like atelier rorona or mana khemia or Ar tonelico III or trinity Universe you have no chance in living hell to beat sony i don't give a crap if there in 2nd or not they won't for long..
now thats just disgusting.
PS2 killed orig xbox? I remember it more like MS doing well for only just then popping their console cherry, and coming in against a powerful name like sony at that.
@mcnablejr: thats really gross, had to go there didnt u?
i've neva heard of most of that stuff. they are overlooked.
Wow, are you guys really arguing over shovelware? Give me a break. I've played better games on the NES than those turds. Yall really have bad taste in games.
next topic how most x360 games are over rated.
I have Viva Pinata, Very enjoyable game, Love it. The only other game on that list I've played was Blue Dragon and hated it with a passion! The other 3 never really caught my attention
name one good game on the old xbox?and please dont say halo and halo2 becaue halo is one of the worse games out there the only game that was worth it on old xbox was shenmue 2 and thats it other then that the old xbox wasn't even worth buying thats why most people bought the ps2 and thats how the ps2 killed the xbox..
halo halo halo halo halo halo halo halo halo halo halo halo and even gears
just a game that ms wants to hype just to fill there pockets with money but really its not worth it..
try god of war 3 uncharted2 games that has good graphic plus good gameplay and story which blows gears of war out the water..
