~What underrated games do you like?~

46 replies 4 views Edited Aug 23, 2007
So what games did you liked that received scores in the 8s or below by gaming critics and why did you think that game was underrated?
 
For me it has to be Killzone and Star Wars: Republic Commando.
 
I personally liked Killzone and it's my favorite FPS to play.  I could agree that the A.I. wasn't that bright, glitchy graphics, and very linear gameplay but I still enjoyed it since the weapons were awesome and fun to use like the squad cannon and the Helghast assault rifle, the Helghast were a great enemy to fight since they all the good stuff where as the ISA didn't, the game kept me playing for the rest of the story, and I enjoyed the multiplayer aspect since it had bots.  Also, Beachhead and Park Terminal were the best maps I've ever played.
 
Star Wars: Republic Commando deserved better scores since it was the best Star Wars FPS on the Xbox and PC.  Not only was the enemy A.I. challenging but it had one important thing that most shooters should but don't have:  Smart friendly A.I.  Your squad will do anything you say when you bark out an order and they'll do it by the letter.  You and they will barely die since you and the entire squad will help one another and at times, they make jokes on one another.  The campaign was too short (10 hours tops) and the multiplayer wasn't as great as I expected but the campaign is still fun to replay and very challenging especially when you're doing it on hard.   Overall, I think it's a great FPS to play if you have a PC, Xbox, or Xbox 360.

Manhunt, for sure. when it first came out, it didn't get really that much attention but it was an awesome game. It was the scariest game I've ever played. Delightfully disturbing.

I played Killzone when it came out, and honestly I can't remember what I thought of it at the time....I played halfway through and stopped. Now, after years of hearing from the gamers that it is the holy grail of shooters (Smiley Very Happy) I decided to pick it up and play again, and it's pretty awesome

I also play a lot of BLACK...I love shooters.
-since I posted in Shooter General and nobody can evidently understand a post more than three sentences long, maybe people here can help me out; which Timesplitters game is the best in the series that I should get off eBay, and is Project: Snowblind a good game? Thanks.
