2008 Most Underrated Xbox 360 Game?

#51 Posted by Nightkiller93 (175 posts) -

Yeah i really liked Lost Odyssey,it's just a shame nobody else did.

Lost Odyssey is more underrated by the critics than the fans. Possibly Infinite Undiscovery could be the most underated.

Eternal Sonata

Culdcept Saga 

While I see a lot of folks say Lost Odyssey, I just could not get into that game.

Ninja Gaiden 2 and Lost Odyssey. They were both alot of fun to play.

Lost Odyssey and Viva Pinata.

#57 Posted by Sharvie (116 posts) -

2008: I would go for Brothers in Arms. Hardly anyone is talking about it.

Crackdown is also pretty underrated. I really enjoyed playing it.

nah the AA it got from Gamespot and IGN was right. as much as i love the game and im currently beating it on PotMN right now its just unbalanced and not as good as the first.

Burnout Paradise. It came out at the beginning of the year, and most of it's sales were on the PS3.

#60 Posted by LightYagami245 (1161 posts) -

I would say Eternal Sonata. A good game, but underrated IMO.

I'm super glad to see so many people saying Lost Odyssey. It's crazy to see how it got such 'meh' reviews, then see so many fans love it. Crazy in a good way of course!

I also personally thought Viking: Battle for Asgard was underrated. But that is possibly more suited to a "games everyone hates but you" thread! :D

#62 Posted by sLux (18 posts) -

Devil May Cry 4!

#63 Posted by Strife88 (246 posts) -

i just wanted to say Army of Two. That game right there was innovative and even though there wasn't a lot of varied gameplay it had a lot of replay value and always felt different each time.

#64 Posted by insanegamer (734 posts) -

i would have to say brothers in arms.

It's a great game, and I'm guilty of not finishing it yet.  I'm surprised more people don't talk about it.

Supcom for the 360, it was the first console RTS to bring alot of scale over here. Which made the statement you can have RTS on a console.

#68 Posted by klaus (30 posts) -

I would say that any Viva Pinata that comes out is underrated. I mean the game had me and my friends hooked for weeks. I honestly don't see why Microsoft doesn't push that series a little harder.

Condemned 2 also makes my list of underrated games this year.

bourne conspiracy

#70 Posted by Nit3mare (29 posts) -

Underrated so far: DMC4, I loved that game.
Probably by the end of the year: Gears 2. I think Gears 1 was underrated even though it got such high marks. Yes, that's how much I love it ;)

#71 Posted by Djrocks (103 posts) -

Soul Calibur IV

#72 Posted by RebelLoyalist (211 posts) -

I  would say Ninja Gaiden 2

#73 Posted by Major (474 posts) -

Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts.... most people are put off that they're drastically changing the game from the original two
Viva Pinata is a good choice too

#74 Edited by Vinchenzo (6466 posts) -

Bourne Conspiracy -- nobody bought it, and it wasn't that long of a game but it was very reminiscent of the movie which I loved. I only gave it a 3/5 stars on my written review but it was definitely something different that not many people tried.

#75 Posted by MAV3R1CK (143 posts) -

Talking 360 wise, the most underrated game in my opinion is Battlefield Bad Company, for me, it seemed like there wasn't much hype put into the game and basically people compared it to COD 4.

Hmm, I think you're from the past.
#83 Posted by Demyx (3240 posts) -

I can't freakin wait for Mercenaries 2!

#84 Posted by Magnum (375 posts) -

I bet Call of Duty: World at War comes out and its totally good. Its underrated. Everything I've seen on it looks awesome.

#85 Posted by TheTuch (31 posts) -

Saints Row hands down. Great game but its overshadowed by GTA.

"I'm gonna say the Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise. I don't think the first one did very well, but it was so deep and entertaining, I expect this one to be even more so."
Yes I agree. Its a shame. Because most players wont play it because they will get made fun of too much..including me.

The Darkness,Lost Odyssey.

"i really thought turok was good, but no one else did lol, and Alone in the dark
Congrats, you've just names the 2 worst games of 2008.

I'll have to agree with you there DazbotAthertron, Turok was shameful, I played the N64 version and was impressed but they ruined it in the next release of the game. Alone in the dark I have played and I was not impressed at all. Even though the fire mechanics in the game were pretty good, the rest of the game left alot to be desired. Also the fact that Uwe Boll wrecked the image of that game forever, but thats another thread now isn't it!.

Lost Odyssey no doubt.

Lost odyssey is amazing, but DMC4 would have to be it. Reviewers giving it low 8's are ridiculous. The game deserves low 9's more like it.

#92 Posted by Zub (17 posts) -

I really enjoyed it but  looking at the responses from the Too Human demo im pretty sure that game is gonna get a lot of hate

#93 Posted by OblivionGuy07 (175 posts) -

for 2008, idk. I haven't really picked up an games this year that were underrated. I think Forza 2 was underrated, lots of people disliked that game. Especially some of my friends.

#94 Posted by Bkorns4 (143 posts) -

Lost Odyssey or Alone in the Dark

#95 Posted by wildnine00 (21 posts) -

Unreal Tournament 3. No doubt about it.

#96 Posted by Leewow (134 posts) -

Viva Pinata
I'm 17 And I Loved That Game

#97 Posted by AriekeN (19 posts) -

Ninja Gaiden 2 and Lost Odyssey

#98 Posted by Sentry (4198 posts) -

For games that haven't come out yet? Well I would say Banjo, but other then that there is no such thing, MS hypes up all the exclusive 360 games pretty heavily so I wouldn't think any will be underrated.

#99 Posted by GumbieuK (131 posts) -

GRID, i just feel that game didn't get the credit or recognition it deserves.

It is an will forever be EDF2017.
