You must be wondering, what makes a game underrated, is it the audience, or small number or reviews, or is it the fact that no body played the game when it was released? This all could be the answer to your questions. It’s a bit of both, but one thing is sure, they all are good games, just didn’t get a required attention. So, we are going to share with you the five best-underrated games so far.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines
This game was released in 2004 and so far, is one of the best vampire games. There is something different about it, in most cases, you are trying to kill all the vampires, but now, you are the vampire, living in their society and abiding their laws. But, what more interesting, this community is existing in the human world. Your task is to keep this secret away from humans’ eyes while living in their world. The storyline and the characters are well developed and this is one of those games that makes you connected to characters.
Clive Barker’s Undying
This is probably the oldest game on this list; it was created in 2001. The game is set in Ireland at the Covenant Estate, and you are in the role of Patrick Galloway, a paranormal investigator, who is trying to help his old friend, Jeremiah, as she intends to solve the curse that was cast on his family.
Dark Messiah of Might and Magic
Another old game, published in 2006 and fully engages you in a fantasy world. Players have an opportunity to play in three different modes, melee combat, stealth, and magic. While melee combat is difficult to perform, you just need a bit of more time to perfect your skills. But, you can use the surroundings to your advantage to gather precious points.
Condemned: Criminal Origins
Criminal Origins is probably the creepiest game that is ever made. The player takes a role of an Ethan Hunt, a fired FBI agent who tries to find a serial killer. But, what makes this game unique is that this serial killer is killing other serial killers.
Thief: Deadly Shadows
The main reason why this game went underground is because it was released at the wrong time, when heavily anticipated games were breaking the market, such as Doom 3, or Far Cry. But, the game still provided interesting plot and great characters.
