Second Chance: 10 Underrated Games You Need to Play

1 of 12

We all know some underrated games. Games we feel did not get the attention they deserved or a fair shake at the time of their initial release. With that in mind, here are ten games you really owe it to yourself to play if you have not. I guarantee you will not regret it!

    Bulletstorm sucks imo. But I totally agree with the rest of this list.

    I didn't think Bulletstorm or Spec Ops: The Line were underrated... but that might be because I convinced everyone I know to play them... and they love em.

    I need to actually play El Shadai... I hope it's on Games with Gold at some point... Second Sight is amazing! And so is The Darkness! The 2nd one is a very different game, but also great!

    In the grand scheme of things, sadly, they weren't as well received as they should have been. Too many good shooters got bitten by the "there are too many shooters" attitude between 2010-2013.

    Spec Ops reviews were mostly fixated on the multiplayer which the main developers at Yager were vehemently opposed to adding to the game. Few reviewers discussed the story and the actual shooting mechanics were intentionally made the way they were to reinforce the narrative.

    You could nab El Shaddai for pennies I wager. Games with Gold is lackluster to say the least. A fellow Second SIght lover! Wooooo!
    I haven't played The Darkness 2 yet, but it won't be able to do what the first did. I still want to give it a shot though.

    Spec Ops was the unfortunate victim of the multiplayer obsession at the time and that vile shooter bug.

    The Darkness 2 doesn't do what the first did, it's a VERY different game, but it has this really neat quad-weirding mechanic which makes the shooting vastly different from any other shooter.

    Nevermind that the multiplayer got a cult following anyway due to it actually being a great PC/360 alternative to Metal Gear Online in terms of a more stealthy, controlled competitive multiplayer experience. XD
