    What is the most underrated game in your opinion, the game that you found awsome but it wasn't popular.

    I personaly like Soldiers: Heroes of World War II or Sometimes known as Outfront.
    This Game is Awsome, realy awsome, the best WWII RTS ever. Just make a search and you will see it. Oh man when i saw in game spy only 3 stars :eek: WTF.

    I'm looking forward for Outfront II.

    Oh and it's very popular but PES i think is underated, compared to FIFA, it's 100 times better.

    Planescape: Torment (wonderful game not enough people played it though.)

    I agree about Ps:T but both these games did get great critique by reviewers and can hardly be regarded as underrated....

    edit: Battlezone, Outlaws and perhaps Thief, Grim Fandango and the Myth serie should have been more popular given how good they were.

    I'm not sure how well they sold though. Is there any site where one can find those numbers??

    Well, kinda FFX since ive seen many people talk about how they didnt like FFX......But many FF games have that since people keep comparing all FF games to FFVII, and that makes it kinda hard...

    For a while, Myst was the best-selling PC game in history IIRC

    Act of War: Direct Action - Actually its one of the best RTS in a looongg time, good story and nice videos (that is a must in RTS games) I like it more than C&C: Generals. Even tho its great I haven't heard much of any talking about the game.

    Soldiers: Heroes of WW2 of course, by the way tehre's another Soldiers game coming. I don't is it sequel bust same people are making new game.

    Any game made by Paradox is horribly underrated

    Specifically, Europa Universalis II and Hearts of Iron II

    Especially EU2! :worship: :worship: :worship: :rockon:

    Man, the hours of my life I have thrown away because of that game... I should sue Paradox for causing economic damage to this life that could have been a productive one. :D

    Maybe not the most, but Vagrant Story was extremely underrated.

    ANd Myst was good as well.

    True, I was lucky to even get a copy of HoI2...bought it on day of release, only seen a copy once since.

    For my vote, I'll say Outcast...gorgeous game in terms of storyline, immersion and for the fact it is a B-Movie. Only a game :goodjob:

    Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb. Everyone seems to hate this game. Reviewers always give it bad scores. I guess I just like Indiana Jones too much as I thought the game was awesome, even with all its bugs.

    Eternal Darkness for the GCB. Not really underrated, just a little overlooked.

    Ooh, Ico for PS2. Not under-rated, at least by critics, but I don't think many people bought this little gem.

    First that comes to mind is Subculture. Terrific game with brilliant graphics, an original and a humorous setting.

    Freespace 2, wonderful game, great reviews... Sold like a dead cat.

    Majesty: Gets an 8.4 from IGN (should have been at least a 9). The readers gave it a 7.9 and average press a 7.1. Heck, it was one of the first games to have decent MP, and there hasn't been another game quite like it, ever. I highly recomend picking it up. I have it installed on 4 different computers and it travels everywhere with me!
