Relatively underated games. Jun. 5th, 2011 @ 08:33 PM Reply

In my travels recently I picked up a copy of Aliens vs Predator. It has sold less copies than was expected, but it's a great game. Beautiful area design, amazing gameplay, whether hunting marines as the cloaked Predator, escaping your captors as the stealthy but swift Xenomorph or even getting your boxers filled with bricks as the marines as the varius alien species sneak up on you and kill you. Brutally. Extremely graphic kill sequences cover tha game with gore and various other nasty bodily fluids all over your screen, whether ripping the head and spinal cord out of your prey or just chomping through their skull.

I can't be arsed to write another bit on Mirror's Edge, the revolutionary parkour based FPS.

Any other ones you can think of NG?

Vib Ribbon.
Always Vib Ribbon. No matter how many times I say it still no one ever knows it.

Mischief Makers for the N64.


You have enemies? Good, that means you stood up for something.

I found for a licensed game The Bourne Conspiracy was pretty good. The boss fights were epic, and the pace of the game was on track with the movie. My only complaint? No Matt Damon.

Should I see the movies before I pick it up?

I never hear much about the Sly Cooper trilogy and Ty the Tasmanian Tiger trilogy. Both had really nice level and character designs.

I believe that Titan Quest is slightly underrated, it is a good Hack and Slash game.

AvP was awesome, the only thing I disliked about it is no one, and I mean no one, played the "horde" mode. Where you are the Marines vs wave after wave of aliens.

Depends. If you like the spoiler, than yes. If not, no.

Another game I forgot is F-Zero GX. For a Gamecube game it had wonderful graphics and a fascinating (if not extremely hard) storyline.

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is underrated as hell, yet recognized just enough to be known. It has a great, no, beautiful narrative, the characters are memorable and the landscapes are awe-inspiring. Sure, the actual gameplay isn't great, but that's not where it wants to appeal. The story and character subtleties were where the wanted to really get at. While I'm on Ninja Theory, Heavenly Sword on PS3 needs more attention. I never played it, but I heard great things about it, and then nothing else.

I'm gonna go ahead with Ragnarokia and say Vib Ribbon. What a fucking game.
Also the Katamari series are pretty obscure in the way that most gamers don't know what the fuck a Katamari is.
