Just bought Haegemonia - Legions of Iron, I highly recommend the game.
It looks and plays beautifully.
not many people know about this game so...
haegemonia trailer


Also Nexus - the jupiter incident- one of the most highly underated games of all time.
visually it is still better than most of the games coming out this year.
So...
Nexus the jupiter incident gameplay

DS: Super Robot Tasien Og Saga Endless Frontier: I love this game. Nobody has even ever heard of it,  but it is my all time favorite RPG. I can't believe people think people only like it for it's "fanbase", personally, I was uneffected by the fanbase and actually love it for the gameplay, replayability, story, and content.

GC: MegaMan Battle Network Trasmission I just like this game because I loved the MMBN series.

GBA: Pokemon Crystal, yes, underrated. Everyone's all, silver and gold all the way! Personally, crystal had everything the previous games had with much more.

My favourite genre is always underrated for lack of variety, being too hard, too samey etc ...

So i feel that its my duty to big-up the SHMUPs!!!

Dodonpachi: Greatly improves on the original in every way, one of the best vertical shooters for MAME.

Progear: Horizontal bullet-hell shooter by CAVE. The added co-pilot feature and gem collection makes this game the best in its class!

R-Type Leo: Ardent fans of the series tend to slag this game off quite a bit ... I disagree as its full of horizontally shooting goodness and the soundtrack is nice and uplifting!

Not sure if some of these are under rated. Maybe under appreciated to the masses but I will list some anyway. These are from what I've played.

Haunting Starring Polterguy (Mega Drive/Genesis)
ActRaiser (SNES)
God Hand (PS2)
Jet Set Radio Future (XBOX)
Golden Axe - Revenge of Death Adder (Arcade)
Super Gem Fighters/Pocket Fighters (Saturn/PSX/Arcade)
Shadows of the Damned (360/PS3)
Vanquish (360/PS3)
Saturn Bomberman (Saturn maybe :P)
Shenmue 1 & 2 (Dreamcast/2nd avail. on Xbox also)

I really can't think of much right now. Most of these are well known but whatever.

PC:
- Activision's Battlezone (1995). The best game ever in that era, period. This game deserved a million times more attention than it received, cementing together Real Time Strategy and First Person Shooter.
- Serious Sam. Awesome little FPS from way back when.
- World of Goo. Those of you that have played it know what I'm talking about.

Classic Arcade:
- Marble Madness. The most ridiculously impossible game... Ever.
- Joust. You think any game you've ever played was hard? You're wrong.

NES:
- Battle Toads. Yes, I have finished this game. Bow down before me.  :D
- Duck Hunt. Not really "underrated," but mostly forgotten in this generation. Has anyone played this on the classic NES system? This was the Wii 20 years ahead of schedule.

SNES:
- Kirby's Avalanche. Another awesome gem that no one remembers.

Dreamcast:
- Basically any really good game on this system was underrated because the system itself is the most *Criminally Underrated Console* in history.
  - Chu-Chu Rocket (MOUSE MANIA!!)
  - Shenmue (Most gamers haven't experienced this one, even if they've heard of it. GET THIS GAME.)
  - Crazy Taxi (This game was amazing in its heydey)
  - DDR (First system to have a Dance Dance Revolution series ported to it. So effing fun.)
  - Skies of Arcadia (Before it was on Gamecube this game was practically unknown)
  - Grandia II (Another fantastic RPG tons of gamers missed)
  - Worms World Party (The very first game I ever played online on a console, running on a Dial-Up internet speed.)


I remember Kirby's Avalanche!

Also, add Time Stalkers to the list of underrated Dreamcast games.  Once you get past the intro level, it opens into a great RPG with multiple characters, skills, and worlds, as well as some tough enemies (the Executioner is named that for a reason).

the original GameBoy is very underrated.
you could literally pick up ANY B&W GameBoy Game and have
enormous amounts of fun with it.

on a whim, i started playing "Beavis & Buthead" for
original GameBoy and it became one of the most
rewarding game experiences ever.

"DMG-KMJ" or "Snake Game" is one of the best games ever.
a snake VS. battle to the death, its like tron light cycle for atari.
the computer AI is really clevar and hard to beat.
