List of Criminally Underrated Games
« on: December 01, 2010, 01:40:13 AM »
Welcome to the List of Criminally Underrated Games!! This is where the community can post great but unknown/underrated/underpopular games from any platform as suggestions for others to try!

This thread may be useful if you're looking for more games to explore or want to try something new or different.

Rules:
Major/popular games won't fit in this list for obvious reasons.
Clearly state which console/platform the game(s) are on.



WiiGamin's list:

GBA:
Advance Wars
Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising
Boktai
Boktai II
Golden Sun
Golden Sun: The Lost Age

N64:
Rocket: Robot on Wheels

Gamecube:
Megaman: Network Transmission
Star Wars: Bounty Hunter



Rooskie's list:

N64:
Jet Force Gemini


JamsX's list:

NES:
Mother (Was originally Earthbound)
River City Ransom
METAL STORM (Seriously, I've only seen ONE OTHER PERSON mention this game in any underrated NES game list ever. Any platformer fan should play this.)

PS1:
Vandal Hearts
Vandal Hearts II
Jojo's Bizarre Adventure

SNES:
Mother 2 (Earthbound everywhere besides Japan)

GBA:
Mother 3 (Would have been Earthbound 2 here)
River City Ransom EX
Tales of the World: Narikiri Dungeon 2
Tales of the World: Narikiri Dungeon 3
Yu Yu Hakusho Tournament Tactics



Raysie's list:

PS1:
Crash Team Racing

GBC:
Dragon Ball Z: Legendary Super Warriors



Priestess1's list:

Game Cube:
Baten Kaitos:  Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean.  (I would add Origins, but I haven't even played it).
Harvest Moon:  A Wonderful Life.  (It has a good fanbase, but I still know a lot of people who have no idea what this series is).
Harvest Moon:  Another Wonderful Life.  (It's the girl version).

N64:
Quest 64  (It has a low rating in review, but it's still fun to play.  It's a very simple-minded RPG).
Jet Force Gemini (This was a fun outer space shooting game!  Wacky and cartoony, but fun!)

GBC:
Harvest Moon 1-3 (All of them were fun games.  All relaxing to play).



If you have some games that you would like to share to the world, post them in here!

PS1: Crash Team Racing

Yeah that game was rated highly and it didn't sell too badly, but the thing about this game that no ever mentioned was how it blew away Mario Kart 64. Mario Kart 64 got all the attention for just being Mario while a gem like CTR (Which in my opinion was better than MK64 in every single catergory) was hardly given as much attention.

So here am I saying CTR rocked! LOL

GBC: Dragon Ball Z: Legendary Super Warriors:

Seriously the most under-rated DBZ game, ever. No DBZ fan that's played this has had a bad thing to say about this game. No one noticed this beauty as it came out quite late in the GBC's life.

----

I know there are even more underrated games I've missed, but I definitely will be back to finish my assualt.

My list:

Game Cube:

Baten Kaitos:  Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean.  (I would add Origins, but I haven't even played it).
Harvest Moon:  A Wonderful Life.  (It has a good fanbase, but I still know a lot of people who have no idea what this series is).
Harvest Moon:  Another Wonderful Life.  (It's the girl version).

N64:

Quest 64  (It has a low rating in review, but it's still fun to play.  It's a very simple-minded RPG).
Jet Force Gemini (This was a fun outer space shooting game!  Wacky and cartoony, but fun!)

GBC:

Harvest Moon 1-3 (All of them were fun games.  All relaxing to play).

I've heard that title name a lot, but never really looked into it. I might just do so, it seems interesting. :)

err..


N64: Road Rash 64 (hardly anyone i know has heard of this, without a doubt some of the funniest things you'll ever do and see in a n64 game).

Jet Force Gemini - Awesome, just awesome.


Jaguar (yes, jaguar) - Dino dudes, (think of lemmings)
Alien vs predator, (one of the best FPS games i've played, yet because of such a lowly known console, so many missed out)

Xbox - Call of Cthulu: edges of darkness - best thriller game i've played, excellent story.
-Under Construction-
