My Top 5 Underrated Games

SA writes: This list was hard because I could have taken the easy route by adding games that most have never heard of. Heard of Jamestown: The Legend of the Lost Colony? It's a good game and I could have added to this list, but that's the thing, no one heard of it. I got to thinking that I should add games that I know more than a handful have heard of. (Baten Kaitos Origins, Brutal Legend, de Blob, GameCube, PC, PS3, StarTropics, Xbox 360)

Definitely agree with Brutal Legend. The gameplay may not have been groundbreaking, but the entire package was incredibly well done. You can tell the developers really loved what they were doing.

Good, diverse list btw.

the gameplay was, in fact, ground breaking, it just wasn't executed that well. The idea was close the what we have now in starhawk, it just didn't work as well

It wasn't THAT groundbreaking actually: The Outfit is a 2006 game (from the people behind COH and Warhammer games) that introduced similar Action+Strategy blend.

wow, never heard of the outfit, and it looks awesome! still, I believe that if only one game did it before BL was still quite original.

A game called Battlezone came out in 1998 on PC which mixed action and real time strategy. You effectively played as a unit on a real time strategy battlefield from the first person perspective and you could jump in and out vehicles you built and things like that.

I guess what i'm trying to say is whilst it isn't a new concept it's a criminally underexplored one.

As a metal fan myself I really enjoyed Brutal Legend (great soundtrack, unique open-world, fun action) but it could of done with some tweaking from the rts perspective.

In fact i'd include Battlezone on my under rated games list.

Brutal legend was fun and had a sense of humor.
showtimefolks  +   953d ago
brutal legend is a lot of fun and its under $5 so buy it and enjoy
AIndoria  +   953d ago
Valkyria Chronices for PlayStation 3, period.
I'd also add Final Fantasy VIII because it was dissed by so many people that it's criminal.
Hicken  +   953d ago
Agree with both of these on massive levels.

For anyone who enjoyed the ps2-era GTA games and who likes nice visual effects and killing Nazis of course, I'd say The Saboteur is for you! One of my favourite games this gen and really underrated.
Pintheshadows  +   953d ago
The Saboteur is criminally underlooked and has an amazing open world. I miss Pandemic. I wanted Mercs 3.

Weird olive branch but I mentioned Battlezone above and Pandemic actually developed the sequel. Not relevant you may say but considering Battlezone 2 was their first game and Saboteur their last. I don't know, I thought it was cool.

from this gen, i would add Nier, Resonance of Fate and Shadows Of The Damned
