Top 5 Underrated PLAYSTATION3 Games

For those of you not yet familiar with the Unsung Heroes series, the rules are as follows; games eligible are those disc-based releases that Electronic Theatre feels have been underrated, or treated unfairly since launch. This time, it's the turn of the PLAYSTATION3. Being the Current-Generation machine with the fewest titles – and fewest exclusive releases, for that matter – many of you may be wondering exactly where Electronic Theatre'll be dragging five missed-hits from, but as with any and every console released, there's plenty of ways games can just slip by even the most observant radar...

I agree with Buzz and slightly Conan, but the rest can piss up a rope. Folklore, Genji 2, Lair are my fill ins for those other 3 and the Simpsons game coming in for close runner up.

gaffyh5476d ago

I disagree with the whole list.

The games that should be in there are Heavenly Sword, Folklore and Ratchet & Clank (especially because it is thrown to the side because people think it is a "kid's" game, but it actually is really really really good)

lordgodalming5476d ago

took the words right out of my mouth. R&C (both ToD and QfB)and Folklore are terrific games. Funny thing is, if you go back and look at reviews for Folklore, many of them are really positive, but I guess no one bought the game. And I have to say that Tools of Destruction is still my favorite PS3 game to date. Love Insomniac.

Yikes! That was not underapreciated, it was simply terrible. I don't mind QTE's but that game abused the system.

UltimateIdiot9115475d ago

Hot Shot golf should be on there. It's a really good game.

masterg5475d ago

MotorStorm is the most underated if you ask me.
A 82% avg on one of the greatest racers ever.

INehalemEXI5475d ago (Edited 5475d ago )

Warhawk is the most underated game of the generation so far IMO http://www.youtube.com/watc... watch and drool

If they did not abandon the single player campaign and came with a solid co-op it would of been my selection for greatest of all time.

Has a respectable Meta 84 but plays like 100. Especially with the Operation fallen star booster pack... Jetpack's and trophy's.

ThatCanadianGuy5475d ago

I agree demonStalker!

Warhawk is one of the best online games i've played since Battlefield:2 I love everything about that game.

There's some moments in the game where you just have to stop and go..WOW!

i would give it atleast a 9/10.And you gotta love the dedication incognito put's into it with all the DLC

INehalemEXI5475d ago (Edited 5475d ago )

Yah , Thats the game I really want the screen capture feature for. I could of set up a camera and tripod but I feel Narsasistic doing that and its a pain and produces a somewhat poor quality video vs screen capture.

Very amazing gameplay goes on late into the night many sessions. Bubs to yall fellow Warhawkians.

gunnerheadboy5475d ago

I actually think Buzz! is awesome. It's best played with other people, not by your self.

Johnny_Boy5475d ago

Warhawk is by far the most underated game on ps3 the online experience in that game is impeccable. Definetely a game that has shown that the psn is a place to have a great online experience thats exclusive to the console. Also Heavenly Sword as far as action adventure games truly great fighting system and amazing graphics that for some reason are never mentioned and holy crap the amount of baddies to slice and dice through, the only thing reviewers could whine about was how short it was, who cares the game was amazing and leaving u wanting more how exactly is that a bad thing.

barom5475d ago

I agree with Heavenly Sword and Folklore. But R&C was not underRATED at all! It got a wooping 88.6% at gamerankings. That's a really high score and the franchise is known too. I don't think anyone looks at Ratchet and throws it off their radar because it's a kids game, I think they just don't like those type of games in general.

On a sidenote I'll add Stranglehold and Virtua Fighter 5. Stranglehold because it's a lot of fun period. Virtua Fighter 5 because it was a launch game and the interest in it died wayyy too fast. I might even go as far as to say it was better than Soul Calibur IV. The biggest thing was that it was missing online, but it was still a great game.

redgaurd5475d ago

nah, just kidding. Warhawk definately. Even though I get pwnd all day and night, Its the best fun I have had online....except for the time me and your sister posted our videos on exxxpress lol

BattleAxe5475d ago (Edited 5475d ago )

The Darkness was awesome and I agree that it was totaly underrated. If you guys haven't tried it, rent it or buy it, its a quality game.

boodybandit5475d ago (Edited 5475d ago )

Man it's hard to argue with Warhawk especially after viewing that video. Nothing online runs better than Warhawk with as many players as it supports on any console. The game is simply incredible. I can't believe I have all but stopped playing it. I should be embarrassed to call myself a gamer.

That video has me wanting to fire it up ASAP! If only I could afford to skip work today to do that very thing ;)

I disliked Conan.Too average for me

xhi45476d ago

games cost so much especially where I live it's only really worth it to buy the realllyy realllyy great games like Gears of War 1,2, Resistance 2, Little Big Planet, MGS4, GTA IV etc.

Though some games true are underated, its because they get overshadowed by greater games and are really only normal, average but good games.

None of those mentioned are truly UNDERATED games, a truly underated game for it's time is ICO and Folklore, two truly great games that weren't picked up by the mass market of gamers at the time.

Mr_Bun5476d ago (Edited 5476d ago )

I thought Conan was pretty fun...The voice acting was lame and the boss fights can get annoying, but the gore and move list make up for it.

thisguywithhair5475d ago

I played Conan. Was actually pretty excited about getting it too. But after the third level with no variation on the fighting, no real story elements, and no variety in the boss fight formula I just gave up and sold the game.
