Top 10 Most Underrated Games

3) Shadowrun

Shadowrun is a multiplayer-only FPS released back in 2007 to little fanfare. The game was loosely based on the science fiction/fantasy table-top roleplaying game of the same name. Players could be humans, dwarves, trolls, or elves. Each race had their own advantages and disadvantages. In addition to a variety of traditional weapons such as submachine guns and rocket launchers, there was also a bunch of magic spells in the game such as the ability to teleport short distances, resurrect fallen allies, or plant a “tree of life” that healed anybody standing near it.

The game ended up getting pretty bad review scores and holds just a 66/100 aggregate score on Metacritic. Most critics didn't like it because of the fact it was multiplayer-only (though that doesn't seem to bring down today's Titanfall reviews).

Although Shadowrun ended up being picked up on the Major League Gaming Pro Circuit for competitive play, that didn't increase its popularity among the general audience of gamers. The game only sold 450,000 copies worldwide according to numbers from VGChartz.

FASA Interactive folded shortly after releasing the game. The online servers were shut down a little while later so it's now impossible to ever play this game online again – definitely a problem with multiplayer-only games.
