8 most Under sold and Under rated games on the Xbox 360

Posted By | On 17th, Oct. 2009

The Xbox 360 has had some of the best games this generation. From Gears of War , Fable 2 to Mass Effect, Xbox 360 has something for everyone. Here we list some of the games that were awesome but missed out due to some reasons. Please do note that We agree that this might not be the complete list and some of you might not agree with it. So here are the 8 most under rated & under sold Xbox 360 games in any order.

1. Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise

VIVAPINATA

Sweet and pretty looking games often get ignored. Take Little Big Planet for example, the game was very original in its ideas, but the sales never matched the quality. Same was the case with Viva Pinata, sales were disappointing and 300,000 copies sold and the scores did not allowed the game to get the recognition it deserved.

2. Crackdown

CRACKDOWN

Selling just over 1.5 million copies and getting scores which the game did not deserved is the story of this cracking 360 exclusive. Featuring open world action in third person mode and the protagonist having super human power and having cell shaded graphics, Crackdown just did not got the fame it deserved.

3. The Darkness

THEDARKNESS

Although this game is not a Xbox 360 exclusive, The Darkness was a great game in all departments. The game had a very strong plot and a very likeable character in Jackie Estacado. The game had very good graphics for its time and most importantly the game had amazing gameplay. The Darkness’s powers were a lot of fun to use. Having said that a lot of websites gave lower scores and on top of that the sales of the game were disappointing. Just about 700,00 copies of this game were sold.

4. Ninja Gaiden II

NINJAGAIDEN2

Ninja Gaiden has always been a great franchise. Ninja Gaiden II was a 360 exclusive for about a year, until recently the PS3 got a better version is Sigma 2. Any case the Xbox 360 version was a belter of a game. Featuring some really tough and challenging boss battles and striking visuals the game was under rated as well under sold. Considering Xbox 360’s larger user base this game did not even sold a million. What a shame!

5. Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation

ACECOMBAT

Easily one of the best fighter plane games out there and I guess the only game this generation that has a dedicated single player and multiplayer action in the sky. Fires of Liberation sadly under sold and was under rated. Sales were closer to about 700,000 and for about 20 hours of great dogfight action this game had to be be on our list.

6. Saints Row

SAINTSROW

Many would say that Saints Row is a direct rip off of Grand Theft Auto. I will like to disagree. Yes it does take references but it surely isn’t a rip off. In fact for an open world sandbox game it does get a few things better than the renowned franchise of Rockstar. Released in 2006 and only on the 360 the game did well at 2 million sales but it would have been more if it would have not been compared and criticized with regards to Grand Theft Auto.

7. Condemned: Criminal Origins

CONDEMNED

One of the early 360 exclusives and one of the first horror games this generation, Criminal Origins was a very unique game its own right. Featuring intense first person shoot outs and a great plot, gamers who never bought this game are surely missing something great. The game may be available in stores for about 10-20$, so I guess you should pick it up. And the sales were just under 500,000.

8. Eternal Sonata

ETERNALSONATA

One of the most original games in its own right, Eternal Sonata featured some of the sweetest characters in video games, great RPG elements and a story that you will probably not forget. Started out as a timed Xbox 360 exclusive for about six to eight months. Sales and scores both were low. Sales for this game were around 200,000.
