Vanquish
Binary Domain
Syndicate
Metro 2033
Singularity
Crysis 2
Rage
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Lord of the Rings:Conquest- It SW Battle Front in Middle Earth. It was rushed and is now offline. It's still has multiplayer fun.
Lord of the Rings:War in the North
Goldeneye 007 Reloaded for Xbox 360/PS3 The Wii version was pretty good too, but the graphics are amazing on xbox/ps3
DarkStar One- a bit of Mass Effect, a bit of EVE online. RPG, shooting, space combat....just get it already!
Hunted:The Demons Forge-This hack'n slash dungeon crawler is totally awesome and addictive.It's a shame critics were so negative.
Kingdoms of Amalur:Reckoning: Gorgeous Action RPG with great color scheme (Fable/Torchlight/WOW) & great combat.
Dragons Dogma-Like Hunted and KOA-great combat,awesome monsters (except no MINOTAURS=BETRAYAL!) and lots to do!

The Witcher - it's strange that almost nobody has played this, when it's easily one of the best RPGs this generation

Vanquish - by far my favorite third person shooter this gen. A great concept, awesome gameplay, and perfect controls.

Nier - best story/characters of any game this gen

Crisis 2, rage, dues ex are not underrated at all. They are very overrated.

Huh? Rage doesn't get half the recognition it deserves, neither does Crysis 2.

I don't know about that. When both Rage and Crysis 2 came out, there was a lot of talk about them both in the press and within the community. It's just that most of the talk about Rage was that it was a bad game, which I guess could make it "underrated", but Crysis 2 seemed to be very well-liked and discussed.

Binary Domain is a perfect game for this discussion. That game was pretty much ignored by everybody when it came out, despite it being a very good game. Same with The Darkness II.

If you ever wanted to import it and play it, I'd be willing to help you through the process. I won't talk about anything that has to do with piracy, as I'm not for it, but I'd walk you through getting a legal import of it to play. It takes like 5 minutes and it's ridiculously easy.

Well, Crysis 2 is one of the those games that gets randomly dumped on for no apparent reason. I've played both Crysis and Crysis 2, and while I do think there's a little (I said only a little) more freedom, the game play is largely the same, and I never felt restrained with either game. The gun play is better, it's more focused, and really, Crysis's open world was a gimmick at best. It's hardly open world, because there's no damn reason to explore or do anything other than the missions at hand.

So is this a "underrated by reviewers" or a "not played by enough people" thing? Because The Witcher fits one category. Alpha Protocol fits both.

I can promise you that you won't brick it or anything. It's very, very easy. PS: I, myself, am a total moron, so if I can do it, anyone can. ;P

I looked into importing it, Classic suggested HMV.com or game.co.uk, the cheapest I found was $71 bucks at HMV.com, too expensive for me.

My brother and I rented LoTR: Conquest and had a blast...especially the evil campaign. You can burn the Shire!

Go with Amazon.co.uk. They ship to the states (marketplace sellers do not).

Sadly, it's 28-29 pounds now, but it was between 17-18 pounds at its lowest. Keep an eye on it. It's between $46-$48 now.

Oh wow, that isn't too bad. I'll hold off for a bit to see if it drops again, but I might be willing to pay the $48 eventually.

thanks.

My regular amazon account even works lol.

I usually do Shopto or Amazon.co.uk for import orders, as I've heard about some nightmares with Game and Zavvi. When I ordered my copy it cost me $41 USD, which wasn't at its lowest, though it was low enough for me. I used my regular Amazon account to order from Amazon.co.uk and Amazon Germany, though I had to sign up again on Amazon Germany but was able to sign up with the same info.

I'd pay $48 bucks for sure, I just have a bunch of games to play right now that I can try to wait a bit.
