    Probably the best computer game I’ve ever played. You had to be a certain age at a certain time. But I’ve never got into a game since, the way I did with this when I was a youngster. I’m sure a lot of it’s nostalgia.

    edit: scratch that! not under-rated!

    well, nobody says it’s the best game of all time do they? do they? I don’t do computer games much these days!

    Turbo Esprit, now we’re talking.

    688 attack sub was creepy as hell to play (especial on 2 connected machines)

    Elite is one of the most revered games ever.

    Banjo Kazooie was never under rated! Had to be one of the best games for the n64! Would love to play that again.

    That’s a negative on Elite being under-rated – best game mentioned thus far by a country mile.

    Knight lore is probably under-rated – the cognoscenti rate it of course but it’s revolutionary status is less well appreciated.

    I remember knightlore. going back a bit! Alien8 was pretty good.

    Turbo Esprit was superb. First game I can think of where you could just forget about game and go off and wander around and muck about instead. If you ignored the aim of the game it was a sort of grand theft auto before its time. Have fond memories of weaving between the lamp posts to knock down pedestrians.

    OK, not underrated, but I wanted to mention it. I still have it along with quite a few other N64 games.

    Turbo Esprit was superb.

    yes, pretty much a free-roam game for the Spectrum. Well ahead of it’s time. The GTA series stands on the shoulders of Turbo Esprit imo.

    Fade to Black, the sequel to Another World, PS2.

    TT Superbikes by Jester Interactive, again on the PS2.
    Insanely hard, superbly rewarding Isle of Man bike racing simulator.

    Tourist Trophy, PS2. Gran Turismo, but with bikes.

    Super Bomberman on the SNES, best multiplayer ever?

    Ikaruga, PS2, old school vertical shooter.

    Secret of Mana on the SNES, best Squaresoft RPG.

    Ooh, Ikaruga is stellar. Dreamcast, if each had their own. It’s not really ‘underrated’ though…!

    I think you’re in danger of listing ‘must-play classic games’ rather than ‘underrated games’ there though.

    some of my choices for starters love this game (better than doom 3 in my opinion) revolutionised the driving genre (with it’s freeform sandbox gameworld) i just love the relentlessness/humour of it (screaming bomb head guys 😉 over to you 🙂

    Doom underrated? There’s a really heartwarming/breaking story about Animal Crossing.

    This game is my favourite of all time more or less…

    The Sentinal was pretty cool, very original game play for its day.

    Not sure if underrated, but criminally overlooked.

    Cougar, you’re right, I’ve got Ikaruga on the DC, not PS2.

    In fact, it’s upstairs somewhere 🙂
    Might just have a Dreamcast evening. Crazy Taxi bowling anyone?

    I tried to fire up my dreamcast the other month, wasn’t spinning up. Gutted 😥

    there was only one era for proper games…

    one of the most addictive game ever and the best ‘annoying’ soundtrack..

    and from the same era…

    and again…

    been a games geek since the specturm 48k, yes my ps3 is a marvel of technology but you couldnt beat the playability of the old skool stuff!!

    when full colour proper games came out on the amiga it was like the second coming!!

    how could i forget!!!

    amazing how big this game was and it came on 2 floppy disks!!!!

    i’ll take my rose tinted specs off now!

    the most fun multiplayer game, absolutely mental.

    Raceface, yup, still got that one too! Not an easy game by any means.

    Will dig out the DC when I get home, not had it set up for ages.
    Quite excited tbh, sad isn’t it?

    Shenmue anyone?

    Oh and F Zero GX makes my eyes bleed, how fast?

    Tom83

    Ahhh Shenmue: “That day the snow turned to rain”. Awesome game, was talking to my mate about it the other day, and he mentioned the fork lift racing, fun, but annoying if you so much as touched anything as you came to a complete stop!

    Rusty Spanner that isn’t sad at all 🙂 can totally get exited about playing consoles/games that i haven’t played for a long time. it’s fantastic to be able to get a c64/amiga emulator and play some of my faves from back in the day (i still have most of my amiga a500+ games/no a500+ to play them on unfortunately,as mine is broken 🙁

    WinUAE last time I tried. Also, ADF is a bloody nightmare, better off with pre-ripped images.

    Actually, ST / Amiga-ing these days is a very good question. I might have a go tonight.

    BLOODY CARRIER COMMAND!

    Good gods, man. I’d forgotten that game. Grade one classic.
