Most Underrated games

What is everyone's favorite underrated game. I actually really enjoy Timeshift. I only bought it for $2 too lol.

Saying a game is "underrated" is more of a personal preference. I personally thought Alan Wake deserved waaaay more attention than it got. Sure reviews were high, but it should be one of those single player games talked about as much as Skyrim is.

Sacred 2: Fallen Angel comes to mind for me. Not many people have heard of this game, much less played it. I just heard of this game 2 years ago by my sister from Oklahoma. Tried it and fell in love with it. Next to Torchlight, it's the closest we'll get to Diablo for the 360

Syndicate.
Game was great, fun Single player...AWESOME co op mode. Nobody played the damn thing. Yet plenty of people seem to go around saying it sucked. It's suffering from Too Human syndrome. Great game...for some reason not received well.
I blame the casual crowd...fuck you guys.

More I can't think of at the moment.

Halo...3...

ODST?

Not sure if that counts as an "underrated" title, compared to Halo CE, 2, 3, Reach, or 4.

I think you're confusing underrated with overrated.

Enslaved was so under rated day one sales were almost non existent here, and even at launch it was really hard to get, ended up being one of the best games I've ever played on the xbox

What about Skyrim? Is that underrated? Nobody talked about that game, I think it deserves to be played more.

Two Worlds 2. Not many people I know have even heard or played it. But I loved the game. One of my favourites that I played last year.

Kingdoms of Amalur. Same again. Got plenty of hours from it. Only problem was the characters were a bit weak, but it was good enough everywhere else.

Don't know many people who have played either, but they both impressed me and I've sank plenty of hours intinto both games.

Under rated for me? As someone else said, it's pretty objective.

Singularity
Enslaved
Last Remnant
Lost Odyssey
Metro 2033

Enjoyed all those games.

Bulletstorm
Darksiders 2
Just Cause 2
Singularity

Unfortunately, the Darksiders series won't continue as the second installment didn't sell enough copies. I'm not sure if it was because of poor marketing, but the game sold horribly. It's a shame, too; Darksiders was one of my favorite series.

Dante's Inferno is pretty underrated, imo.
Good story, nice graphics, 'good' ending.
And does anyone knows if the Auto-Absolve also counts for absolving?

For me either The Saboteur or Deadly Premonition.

Deadly Premonition had a fantastic story and Saboteur was just an incredibly fun sandbox where you got to blow alot of stuff up.

Plot twist.
Spoiler! (click here to reveal)


Here's a game that I find underrated. Dant- oh, hey, someone beat me to saying it first.

You mean when you're absolving those shades? Pretty sure auto-absolve counts. But it's just better to manually absolve, you get more souls.

Visceral set the game up nicely for a sequel. Fighting demons through Purgatory and shit. Granted, the poem didn't really have Dante fighting demons in Purgatory, but hey, Dante's Inferno (the game) doesn't really follow The Inferno. Visceral can do whatever the hell they want. As long as Dante's Purgatory doesn't take me four hours to beat, like The Force Unleashed II.

Another underrated game, in my opinion. Maybe since I hate Star Wars, I actually enjoyed TFUII for not knowing shit about the Star Wars universe, and I just played the game and got a high out of flinging Stormtroopers about and punting those teddy bears in that $1 DLC. The only thing I didn't like about TFUII was it's pacing, but everyone seemed to bash the game in all categories. And I give credit to both Force Unleashed games for making me decide to explore the Star Wars lore and buy Knights of the Old Republic for the OG Xbox a year and a half ago. What a great game that was.

Splatterhouse

I would also say Conan, just because looks like an old B movie with clay-made enemies. Plus it's quite fun to play. Not great but not so bad.

For me it was Mirror's Edge, something about a first person game where gunplay wasn't the focus and in fact was distraction.
