Top 5 underrated games


  1. Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

    Kingdoms of Amalur
    Platform – PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360
    Developer – 38 Studios
    Released – 2012

    A wonderful RPG with an over 200 hours of gameplay, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is one of the most underrated game on PC and PS3. The game environment is astonishingly filled with fantasy elements and has a surreal feel to it.
    Though the game received positive reviews were generally optimistic, the game failed to achieve its target of 3 mn sales in its initial 90-day period. The game was able to sell only 1.2 mn copies resulting into filing for bankruptcy by the developer, 38 Studios, after the release.

  2. Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

    GTA Chinatown Wars

    Platform – NDS, PlayStation Portable, iOS, Android, Fire OS
    Developer – Rockstar Leeds, Rockstar North
    Released – 2009

    Everyone knows GTA. GTA: Chinatown Wars was released on the handheld Nintendo DS console in 2009. Though the game won an award for best handheld game of the year, it failed commercially.
    The game featured the classtic GTA-style top-down view, where you as Huang Lee complete various missions. The game sold only 90k copies in its first 2-week run and was declared as a flop despite of its amazing gameplay.

  3. Dark Cloud

    Dark Cloud

    Platform – PlayStation 2
    Developer – Level-5
    Released – 2000

    Dark Cloud were one of the earliest experimental and pioneer titles that combined elements of RPG with city-building. Though the game performed well for Western audience in its 2001 re-release, it failed miserable to score a mark in its home market. The game was soon declared as a collapse in the Japanese gaming market.

  4. Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne

    Max Payne 2

    Platform – PC, PlayStation 2, Xbox
    Developer – Remedy Entertainment
    Released – 2003

    I agree that Max Payne movie is not so much original-game friendly because if it were, it might have pwerfomed well at the box-office. Max Payne is a very serious and deeply emotional game at its best which can make you connect to the eponymous protagonist of the game. It’s sequel, Max Payne 2, had all the ingredients to further escalate the popularity of the Max Payne franchise. Howsoever, the game resulted into a failure with super-low sales than expected, officially declaring it a waste of money, time and art.

  5. Shenmmue II

    Shenmue II

    Platform – Dreancast, Xbox
    Developer – Sega AM2
    Released – 2001

    Shenmue II failed to perform well and was able to sold only 100k copies in 2-years, making it one of the biggest game losses of all time!

So, that were some of the worst-case scenarios in gaming.

Stay tuned for more!
