Top 10 Most Underrated Games

When it comes to blockbuster titles, pretty much everybody knows the big names. You hear a lot of talk about upcoming games from the top game franchises but there are also lots of amazing video games that end up flying under people's radar simply because they are a new intellectual property or they get average review scores from critics. Finding a diamond in the rough can be even more satisfying because you didn't expect the game to be that good. When a game surpasses your expectations, it makes that game all the more memorable. Here are the top 10 most underrated video games.

10) Brother in Arms: Hell's Highway

The Brothers in Arms series is based off the show Band of Brothers. Hell's Highway is the last full game in the series that was released on consoles and it came out in 2008. Despite the fact it only received a 76 aggregate review score on Metacritic, the game was awesome. Hell's Highway is a tactical shooter with very different combat mechanics compared to a traditional shooter such as Call of Duty. You aren't a one man army that can do everything yourself. In this game you have to constantly be issuing orders to your squad mates.

Military tactics such as laying down suppression fire and bounding are things you will need to master in order to succeed in this game. It is sort of like a combination between an FPS and an RTS since positioning your other units is just as important as your own accuracy. Being able to take control of a firefight gives you a sense of empowerment. The sound in this game is very realistic, too. There's nothing like commanding your machine gun squad to lay down suppression fire on a target and then hearing them start to unload on the unfortunate victims a few seconds later.
