The Eight Most Unappreciated Games of 2007

Despite this newness, the video games industry -- and its community of fans -- is thriving. While some games enjoy accolades like "Best Game of the Year" and sell millions upon millions of copies, there are some gems that remain hidden from both the critic and the communities' watchful eyes.

Awesome find.
"If the term 'misunderstood' ever applied to a game, Assassin's Creed was it." Sad and true. AC was a classic that so many just didn't get it.

My list of unappreciated would be:
1.Assassin's Creed
2.Crush (Little PSP title)
3.The Witcher
4.Zack & Wiki
5.Contra 4
7.Mass Effect
8.Persona 3 (Though I didn't get to play it :( )
9.Ratchet & Clank TOD
10.Odin Sphere

And funnily enough, the guy said 360!!!! It's also available on the PS3. In fact, if it would not be for Everyday Shooter, I would have wonder if the guy ever tried a PS3...

Now, my official unappreciated game of 2007 is definitively LAIR!

No matter what critics have said, this is still a great game. After all, there's tons and tons of games out right now, and so many of them are not worth the money, but Lair is definitively a buy in my book, ahead of many of them.

Mass effect is at 1.6 million copies.

supnub54028d ago

the witcher sold over 1mil worldwide so i wouldn't say it was underappreciated.

?? Mario Galaxy and Assassins Creed??

"hidden from both the critic and the communities"??

What a poorly researched article. Both sold well over a million and both got good to great average scores!

"Galaxy sold almost no copies." er Ive heard it has reached well over a million.

MK_Red4028d ago

lol, I do believe that Assassins was unappreciated but Mario Galaxy definitly doesn't belong there. It's the highest rated game of 2007 and has sold more than 3 million copies worldwide.
PErsonally I believe Mario Galaxy is the overrated not underrated.

I totally agree. Assassin's Creed sold millions and for being a new franchise that's pretty amazing. An average score of around 80% is still pretty good. I'm pretty sure everyone can agree that Assassin's Creed has it's flaws (in my opinion some big flaws).

Mario Galaxy has sold a bunch and have been getting perfect 10s all over. How it's underappreciated is beyond me.

Only game I felt he/she got it right was Eternal Sonata. It was overshadowed by Blue Dragon (which is in my opinion an inferior game).

I think that Mass Effect and Assassin's Creed have both sold way too much to be called "under appreciated". Assassin's Creed is the fastest selling new IP in years, and Mass Effect sold well over a million in a short amount of time.

One game that I think went largely unnoticed is The Darkness. It has great gameplay, great voice acting, and some of the best graphics I've ever seen. I hope they make a sequel.

Lair. It borught cutting edge graphics and innovation and yet the hypocritical reviewers who rate wii motion sensing good yet rate ps3 bad because of it. How much sense does that make? None.

mintaro4028d ago

the reason that lair got bad reviews was the fact that the controls were not polished, and that they forced you to use the sixaxis.

ElfShotTheFood4028d ago

Mario was "unappreciated"? It sold over a million copies and has an average review score of 97% on GameRankings.
