Second Chances: Five Games That Deserve Another Look

Warp Zoned Writes:

"Gaming is a time-consuming hobby. Unlike music or movies, which require a minimal investment, video games can be lengthy and involved affairs. As such, it’s much easier to miss out on really good games that come and go without much notice. Perhaps it’s because of a bad release date, or maybe it just didn’t get heavy distribution or advertising. Hell, maybe it doesn’t have a good Metacritic score, or it was completely ignored on gaming message boards. Regardless of the reason why, some games just don’t make it, and that’s a shame. That’s why we’re here, though – to pick out some unheralded gems and give them the attention they so richly deserve. They might not be able to compete with the heaviest of hitters, the so-called “AAA” games that sell millions, but they present entertaining gaming experiences all the same." (Alpha Protocol, Dj Hero, PC, PS3, Singularity, Test Drive Unlimited, The Saboteur, Wii, Xbox 360)

Singularity is absolutely on my to-do list, but I'm hesitant about Saboteur.

Played DJ Hero, really fun game.

Saboteur was good but Singilarity wasn't that great. Try Sabatuer first you won't be disappointed. Singularity was as generic as they come.

Just playing through Saboteur now, fantastic game. Reminds me of the old GTAs but set in WW2. Forgot how much fun killing Nazis was.

Alpha Protocol & The Sabatuer are honestly both on my top 15 games of this generation. I still dont understand all the hate towards Alpha Protocol & I just overlooked the sabateur. Both games were great & alot of fun.

Singularity was ok, it was fun....estenially it was a recreation of the bioshock formula, but still a fun game all & all.

Are the glitches on Alpha Protocol as bad as i've heard? I've seen Obsidians 'work' before and so it put me off. However HMV have it for £5 at the minute, and I'm debating whether to get it

The gltiches are Awful but the game is still a whole lot of fun

There are 2 things that really annoy me in games, online LAG and glitches. I won't touch any game anymore that is riddled with either.

I cant comment on anything to do with online since i stuck to SP only. I do not remember glitches in Alpha Protocol. The biggest complaint i remember hearing about in reviews was people saying how aiming dosent work, but the problem they didnt realise is this game is a 3rd person rpg first, your characters aim sucks ass in the begginging, you have to level things up to become a good shot. The game was serisouly a lot of fun!

I didn't find Alpha Protocol as glitchy as others made out. I could of been lucky though. I enjoyed Singularity as It felt like an old school Raven PC game and the Saboteur was enjoyable as well.
