Author takes a look at The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, Lost Planet 3 and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 - three titles they believe are underrated.
Surprised XCOM isn't getting that much attention.
Though I have yet to play Lords of Shadow, I am excited to check out the sequel.
The only game out of these three that I will not be picking up is Lost Planet 3. I wasn't impressed with the first game and didn't bother with the second. I thought overall sales of Lost Planet 2 were pretty poor, not enough at least to warrant a sequel.
I have to agree with you and say I didn't get the fuss surrounding the original and also rejected the idea of getting 2.
My interest level: 1) Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 2) The Bureau 3) Lost Planet 3 The Bureau would likely be higher but anticipating original LoS release on PC a week after The Bureau comes out and literally seen nothing on LoS 2 that I haven't loved. I sadly lost a lot of interest in LP after the first and with each release its slowly becoming worse :( The potential was fantastic but just can't warm up to the sequels (coop in 2 was main selling point imo).
My rankings are the same as yours, although mine is more like this: 1) Lords of Shadow 2 2) The Bureau 1035) Lost Planet 3 That game is going to BOMB for Capcom.
Very much looking forward to Lord Of Shadows
Very excited for The Bureau.
lords of shadow 2 has been delayed too 2014!
