    I don't think Viewtiful Joe qualifies. It sold well enough to warrant 3 sequels, a port to the PS2 and an anime. That doesn't strike me as under-rated.

    The most under-hyped game that I LOVE to BITS would be Amplitude for the PS2. Nobody I've spoken to has heard of it. Then again, there never was much of a market for Music games.

    But still, it was made by the crew that did the Guitar Hero series, and it's fairly similar in gameplay, except instead of just guitar, you have to keep the drums, vocals, bass, snyth/FX AND guitar going. Easy to learn, an unforgiving bitch to master.

    In recent years, I would have to say Victorious Boxers series on the PS2. The first game was released in the United States 2 years before Fight Night 2004. It's a solid boxing sim despite what the stylized aesthetics may suggest. I didn't like the game at first, but it grew on me as I learned to play the game. Landing a solid punch in this game requires the right angle and distance in relation to your opponent's position, making footwork an important aspect of the game.

    The hell? K&L was over-hyped, if you ask me. And I think it was rated just fine. It's a rather average game.

    I wouldn't say funniest, but definitely didn't get the exposure it deserved.

    What bullshit? The game is mediocre at best. I played the demo and that was more than I could take. Stupid teammates, shitty cover system, clunky controls, the list goes on.

    To be fair, Kane and Lynch controls quite well on the PC. In fact, the overall game is better on the PC.

    Still, I'd say it was one of the examples of too much hype, and I lost all my respect for Gamespot because of the outcome. Giantbomb from now on.

    I think all reviews should be taken with a grain of salt. There is little if any objectivity to the reviews to give you a real feel of the game. After all, it's only a reflection of the writer's personal taste.

    I would have to say Parasite Eve 2, didn't get much if any hype in Europe and it's one of my favorite games.
    Same with Vagrant Story no hype excellent game.

    Underrated? DEFINITELY Quest 64. I played that game so much when I was a kid.

    Well, since we were discussing it in another thread, XIII for Xbox original definitely qualifies.

    for me it's space station silicon valley. Besides the lowres graphics, the game was very original and well done.
    It was funny to hear some parts of tunes of the game in grand theft auto 2 if i recall.
