    We all know games that we feel are underrated in general. Those gems we have in our gaming library that don't seem to get the appreciation they should. What are they TSRsians?

    Mine are:
    -Alpha Protocol
    -Binary Domain
    -Titan Quest: Immortal Throne

    Yes I agree, they really do need to work on Grid 2.

    I remember loving that game, but it's been so long since I last played it! I really need to find a copy online to buy and give it a second playthrough

    My little brother did not see his DS for a month because I had it playing Infinite Space.

    For me, it's gotta be Canis Canem Edit, or more commonly known as 'Bully'
    It's GTA in a school!!!
    Really good storyline, characters, and just such a cool idea, not to mention an awesome soundtrack, saddens me not a lot of people know about it, another Rockstar classic
    Also, perhaps the coolest cover ever?

    Bully was fun I have to admit

    but I'll never understand why Urban Reign wasn't more popular



    I don't think it was even released in UK so nobody had heard of it but everyone who played it, instantly fell in love with it and bought it online from some other country

    it was way ahead of it's time for a PS2 game I think

    I would say the same for Shinobido which was a japanese game I think, definitely ahead of it's time

    From experience The Kingdom Hearts games are so under rated. Also Metal Gear Solid 2 & 3.

    Super Monkey Ball. :coma:
    Super Monkey Ball 2 in particular. Me and my housemates must have clocked DAYS on Monkey Target 2.

    I would say:
    x NBA Street (PS2)
    x Mario Smash Football (GC)
    x Beetle Adventure Racing (N64)
    x Super Star Wars series (SNES)
    x Mickey's Castle of Illusion (I had it on Master System) <- imo the best platformer of all time

    Star Wars: Republic Commando and Parasite Eve II.

    Not underrated since I think they both scored fairly well but more surprised there haven't been any sequels etc...

    FFXIII, yes, Final Fantasy Thirteen.

    I believe the linearity earlier in the game was a metaphor for the Sanctum's control over cocoon and it contrasts well with Pulse's sprawling overworld.

    Also XII, but people appreciate that more often now.
    I'd also say Space Channel 5 is underrated as one of the most inventive rhythm games and a forefather to most modern ones.

    Spyro Year of the Dragon.

    Also for sheer hilarity. Mario Strikers Charged Football. I'd take it over fifa anyday.

    Anyone ever played "Mashed" on the PS2? That was a fun game
