There are some PlayStation 3 exclusives that have slid under the radar, or been critically panned so badly that is boarders on the tragic.
Haven't played those JRPG's but usually like that genre, might have to check 'em out. Folklore was awesome, as was heavenly sword and who doesn't like the sound of 'supersonic acrobatic rocket-powered battle-cars'. That game ssounds like bit of a laugh...
Folklore was amazing and it had some of the best sixaxis controls on the PS3
Yeah, they were very immersive. Proof that sixaxis can be done well and actually add to a game.
that sometimes exclusives that would have been hyped like crazy on 360 is sometimes under rated on PS3.
Battle cars is the only PSN game I play. It really is fantastic!
Same, I havn't played the first 2-3 JRPGs mentioned. But all-in-all, I've played 6/10 of these. And I wasn't awfully disappointed with any of them... sometimes I was pleasantly pleased. (esp. Yakuza)
Not sure if you can consider Yakuza an RPG, its mostly a brawler but yeah the series is underrated outside of Japan.
I plan on getting Atelier Totori, Ar Tonelico Qoga, and White Knight Chronicles II early next year. Also, Enslaved was a BRILLIANT game. Ninja Theory needs to be recognized more.
For all the shit they're getting for DmC, i think consumers are too stupid to realise gave-development talent when they see it. I loved Heavenly Sword and Enslaved, and will gladly purchase ANY game Ninja Theory makes. I wish they would make HS2 next, but not sure what the relationship between NT and Sony are like. Would be sad to see Santa Monica take NT's IP.
Agreed. DmC looks incredible. Looks like the best one since the original. Haters gonna hate, I actually LOVE the look of Dante. People either can't accept change, or they can't deal with the fact that Capcom handed it off to developers that aren't afraid to go outside the box. Capcom is getting stale; Ninja Theory isn't.
Solid list. Moe JRPGs aside. Though I do wish they'd revisit Lair. It real main failing was being hawked for sixaxis. That and important in-games adjectives being yelled in-game among a crowd of other noises.
There will be a lot of games 10 years from now which we look back to and regret not playing them, and all will have been for being fanboys. We should appreciate good games no matter what console they are on, and specially we shouldn't listen to biased, egoistic reviews... in the end the experience is what matters.
Folklore and 3D Dot Game Heroes
i played 2/10...
I would give them all a 2/10 score also.
Valkyria Chronicles should be on this list.
I almost wrote it in my comment above. The thing is it wasn't actually underrated in terms of reviews. It just didn't sell that well :-/ shame its a great game.
I would add MAG too that list...
Its MAG and Heavenly Sword. Everything else is rated correctly.
10 PS3 exclusives that are tragically underrated HAZE and LAIR, despite the hate in this games, they are fantastic games.
Both those games sucked ass.
Idk about LAIR.. But man I couldn't stand playing Haze.. By the end of the campaign, I was ready to go beg for them to take the game back from me. I still wanna play liar, I heard it could be awesome if you don't use the 6-axis.
Heavenly Sword got the ratings it deserved IMO. Couldn't really get into it. I agree with Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket Powered Battle-Cars though.
Why did Game Republic have to go under... Why couldn't it have been Activision!?
Good question! I hope Sony buys Game Republic ( this is really one of things Sony could do to make me happier with they consoles ), as first party team they could give us some more awesome games!
R3 should be on that list. It was extreamly unrated
gave folklore a chance with the 2 demos on psn but was annoyed with the gameplay controls and im a hardcore rpg head but hey cant like everything otherwise id be broke.
i've got 3 out of that list. Heavenly Sword is simply heavenly. Folklore is better than Tim Burton's movies. Yakuza 4.. finished 1st part. just too many games.
I got Heavenly Sword and wishing it have a sequel. Currently playing Ateleier Rorona and loving it.
