    What is the most under-rated/under-hyped game you have loved?

    I have to say, the two ObsCure games were really good as far as Survival horror goes. Some of the best music in the genre. The gameplay was pretty good too, but stressful when multiplaying.

    Threads like this go in General Gaming, not a music forum.

    My apologies... I had mentioned the music of the game in the body.

    I meant to post it in general but I guess I was confused by the similar post " What's the biggest, most popular game ... you've NEVER played ??" that was just below it and hadn't really been moved for 2 months. I didn't mean to put in in the wrong spot.

    Underrated? Under-hyped?

    That's practically every game I consider as classic.

    One of these is Killer7. A lot of people were put off by the lacklustre gameplay, but it more than makes up for it with memorable characters, mature imagery, and a surprisingly intelligent plot.

    Mystical Ninja: Starring Goemon for N64. I cant even count how many times I played this gem through. Seems shabby at first but you really get into it.

    Both Castlevania games for the PS2, they both share the same problems but were fun to play, and the music was excellent.

    I love that game. I play through it once in a while, it is so simple, but I love the graphics and story and gameplay altogether. Awesome game.

    Starship Troopers: Terran Ascendancy.
    A wonderful extension of Heinlein, which manages to incorporate the few good points of the film and mix it with the novel, the TV series and original concepts to create an excellent new universe...

    Final Fantasy VII


    ...oh wait...


    Also, it might just be me. But I don't hear much talk about Time Crisis. And I think that series is amazing. Again, It might just be me, but I seem to see very little talk about it.

    Krusty's super funhouse for the SNES was very addictive. And was a great game.

    I would say Descent 3 for the PC. It has excellent graphics for a 3d game from 1998, and It's a first-person shooter with 6 degrees of freedom. It will give you motion sickness, too. It has multiplayer, but only about 8 people are online at any given time.

    I agree with Cookie, Time Crisis was pretty underrated. And let us not forget it's rival shooter Point Blank which was oodles of fun.

    Hell yeah, the original is an absolute classic - far better than any of the horrendous sequels.

    Also, I do recall a game called Silent Bomber (by Bandai, of all companies) which I found to be pretty damn fun.

    Many, but

    Under-rated:

    Star Ocean 3 should have got much higher scores by the so-called game reviewers.

    The comic book shooter XIII should have gotten much higher scores. The game was based on a French comic book. So....

    Under-hyped:

    The entire Panzer Dragoon Series. It's a crime that these epic games are not as popular as they should be.

    Vagrant Story. That Action/RPG simulator was great, but many people found it too complicated. That's why I don't think it will ever have a sequel.

    That is the coolest thing I've read in a while.

    Excellent game.

    Soldier of Fortune 2. God, I love that game. It deserved much better support from Activision, and more online players.

    Underrated? Earthbound.

    Underhyped? Castlevania: SotN. Best damn psx game released and it was 2-d.
    Thanks to Garamond for the sig/ava!
