I second The Godfather and Zack and Wiki, both great games.

Games like Corruption, Galaxy, Twilight, Brawl (maybe not brawl) aren't necessarily epic games either. The main problem is the enormous fan base of beloved characters and continued stories. As long as the game meets the expectations rating will be high. Another issue is the mad advertising. Not a person with a Wii didn't know about Super Mario Galaxy while other games were completely unheard of. Metroid Prime: Corruption got it's own channel right before release. As one person said, they just really like snow boarding and the previous SSX games so the game appealled. Thousands of people love Nintendo characters, even those that rate the games, causing unrealistic ratings and unreal sales numbers.
Although, IMO, Corruption, Galaxy, and Twilight were incredible games.
If anygame got low ratings that didn't deserve it, I'd have to say it was Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles. That game, due to the Wii Zapper and co-op, along with the on-rail system provided a fun game for even those casual gamers. My girlfriend, that hates games, enjoyed this game. Obviously that says something. She's never played a game in her life and she said she liked it because she could easily jump right in and it felt like being at the arcade. Not to mention the interactive remote (zapper).
Yeah this game is great, some of the later labs are sooo hard tho, havnt completed it yet.Originally Posted by Wiimoto
I think that SSX Blur is highly underated. It is one of the deepest most fluent snowboarding games ever. I've been playing snowboarding games for a while and got bored with all the repetitive games. But SSX Blur reinvigorated my love for this genre.

I have really enjoyed it thus far. If you like Cabelas other titles, Im sure you would enjoy this one too.Originally Posted by Xaegoth
i think the most underated, in scores is "Mario Party 8".....even it has sold about 4, 000, 000 coopies worldwide...... ;p
don't think about a game by just watching a score or a review...
I've been playing video games for 15 yrs n excite truck gave me the most fun out of playin video games. if u get used to the controls, ur hooked for the best ride of ur life in a game
I too think RE: umbrella chronicles should have gotten even better reviews than it did. I enjoyed it a hella lot more than RE:4.
And Far Cry: Vengeance.... received AWFUL reviews, but heck- I got some laughs, and the multiplayer is just super!
Mortal Kombat & Mario Party 8!

Yes, I agree. Too many people talk about how they don't like the lack of true RPG feel in comparison to the original, but I love it, I don't care much for "selecting my attack".Originally Posted by FFS!
