I'd like to throw my 2 cents in with this thread. I have a few games that I feel are underrated but a lot of you will probably disagree with me.
The first is Dirge of Cerberus: FF7. I freaking love this game. I admit that it does not have the mass appeal of games like Call of Duty or Gears of War but I really like it. The story was interesting and had me pulled in from the very beginning and the graphics were great. Not to mention the gameplay which most people really seem to hate...I like it. It's not perfect but I feel that it was a very good system.
The second is both of the Star Wars the Force Unleashed games. I can't get enough of these games. They are short, that I will admit but I feel that the gameplay and story more than makes up for that. Now I played both of them on PC (downloaded them first and then bought them on steam later) and I did notice A LOT of glitches and bugs but I have gotten pretty used to seeing things like that so I've grown to really ignore them. In any case, these games are really good and are very underrated in my opinion.
The third and final one I will mention for now is Final Fantasy X-2. Now I know that Darryl loves this one but I gotta say, I did not like FFX but when I played this game I thought that all of the things that I had a problem with in FFX were gone. (F.Y.I. my problems with FFX consisted of mostly Tidus and Seymour, both of them annoyed the crap out of me.) It does have it's issues here and there but over all I really enjoyed playing through it and will probably replay it once I get done with replaying FF4 on the PSP.
That's pretty much it, only one thing I'd like to add. Crisis core is a great game and one of my favorites but as much as I hate to say it, it is pretty overrated. It has some glaring issues but some people just don't seem to mention them at all and it makes the game come out as near perfect in many reviews which it is not. I myself have completed it fully twice and I intend to do it again once I get my hands on a new copy of it but it is definately not in the same class as FF7, FF4 or FF9 in my opinion, which are, incidentally my favorite FF games in that order.
Anyway, I've gone on way longer than I was going to, sorry about that. Just wanted to throw my 2 cents in and tell you guys my opinion on these games.
