The most underrated video games of this generation next


The current generation of consoles has harvested a bumper crop of incredible games. From the cultural phenomenon of Grand Theft Auto IV to the cinematic luxury of the latest Metal Gear Solid, the number of high-profile releases has truly been staggering. It's therefore unsurprising that many worthy games have slipped through the cracks.

Some of these games were recieved well by critics, but were completely overlooked by the buying public. Others sold fairly well, but were unfairly dismissed by the games press. Whichever the reason, they all should have been bigger hits.

In the following slideshow, we take a look at some of the games that deserved to go on to bigger and better things. In addition to presenting our case for each game, we have also included buying information and links to the original reviews (including the occasions where we got it wrong. Hey, nobody's perfect!)
