Seriously Underrated SNES RPGs

The SNES was an absolute unit when it came to releasing great RPGs. But not all the SNES RPGs got the same attention as Final Fantasy titles or Chrono Trigger, though. Here are a few unsung RPGs for the Super NES.

I feel like Lufia games are always underrated. 7th Saga can go kick rocks, though

I was always a fan of 7th Saga but I can see the dislike of it. Lufia games are usually a good time but can drag on.

The graphics rocked for 7th saga but I got beat down in the early game and it kinda killed the experience for me.

TFJWM553d ago

Ya 7th Saga is very unforgiving if you don't choose the right class and/or get bad luck with who you run into during the early game but that added to it on multiple playthroughs.

7th Saga is one of my faves. But it will eat you if you don't know what you're doing. Always make sure your speed stat raises by at least 4 every time you level up. That way you'll dodge ~70% of all attacks coming at you. You almost never die in one hit.

loved loved loved Secret of Evermore. still remember the tv spot from when i was a kid - creeps me out till this day.

If it's the same one I'm thinking of, they made the game look a LOT more intense than they needed to lol

Secret of Evermore actually did well. Yoshi's Island was released around then as well and stole most of the headlines though.

Kudos to this article for not being an ad marathon.

Let me throw in a game that goes far under the radar for JRPGs on SNES:

E.V.O. Search for Eden

This epic game from Enix is like taking Feeding Frenzy and adding in evolution! You start as a prehistoric tadpole and use XP to evolve or devolve as needed to tackle this crazy unique RPG. It’s really hard to explain. Highly recommended and I would love to see a remake.

That game brings back great childhood memories of gaming and how life was during that era

Terranigma is one of my favorite games of all time. Damn near a crime that it never got a Western release. Amazing game.

I recently discovered the next edition to Soul Blazer/Illusion of Gaia series existed. That game looked amazing for the SNES and it was a damn shame it didn't make it here in the west. I have to play it through emulation now, but I wish I had a chance to play it back then
