Hehe, you got me, as I didn't scroll down
Oddworld : Strangers Wrath
Silent Hill: BoM
Loved the demo. So first time I saw it cheap, I bought it for 6us i think. Played like 20 hours on difficult.
I really think the game had a lot of potential. The engine is great, works flawlessly, I like the combat, upgrade system, etc. But it turned to be repetitive as hell, not only to lvl up, then you find fyou have to grind A LOT only for getting gems to lvl up your skills.
I hoped I had started it on super easy. Rainbow Moon is grinding no sense at it best. Rainbow Sky is coming soon, hope it gets better.
Oh yes, big time.
Resistance: Burning Skies - I actually like the game!
There was a bit of grinding but I enjoyed it so didn't mind. The world map and navigation was fun, and after I played Disgaea (having liked this so much) it made me really appreciate the simplicity of the combat/battles
Either way, its a very underrated game, if grinding is the only flaw, you know its a good game.
Pumped for Rainbow Skies
Vita itself and most of its games are underrated and overlooked.
If I had to pick the one that stands out the most, considering both how few people played and how amazing it is, it would be Knytt Underground.
Otherwise, Kick & Fennick. While not as good as Knytt Underground, it's still a great platformer that really no one has played.
The third place would be likely occupied by Pix The Cat
Interesting choices, I'll have to give those games another look
Ys: Memories of Celceta.
Amazing game. It has simple, yet very fun gameplay that reminds me of Kingdom Hearts. The music is spectacular, which is rare for an ARPG like this. The graphics are...okay, at best, but the environments are colorful and nice. The worst thing about this game is probably the story, it's kinda bland, cliched, and uninteresting, but at the same time it's not that bad.
Keep in mind that Knytt Underground is oddly divided into chapters, meaning that there are 3 chapters but two of them are basically short tutorials/prologues to the two protagonists. The actual game starts, and ends, at chapter 3. Even more odd, as chapter 3 lasts over a dozen of hours, while the first two last around a hour combined.
As for Pix The Cat, my biggest advice is to unlock Lab and Nostalgia levels. They're completely different from the main mode.
Agreed regarding Knytt Underground. I really enjoyed the game once I got to chapter 3. The other two chapters seem almost like a tutorial or intro to the game. I also felt the game was even better still if you went after the trophies - all the trophy objectives were basically secrets/extra modes/areas in the game that added more hours to the game. Some of the extra challenge rooms were fairly damn hard. Not the best Metroidvania game I've ever played but its definitely under rated.
How did you find the map/navigation? I remember reading reviews at the time about how disorientating it is - might be confusing with Batman which i remeber had the same issue.
It's very similar to the map in the Castlevania games and even better due to it having actual coordinates.
That's how the full map looks (it might be "spoiler" if you want to go blind)
Well Knytt, even at its core, it's still very different from other metroidvanias. Most metroidvania games are more focused on combat and maybe rpg elements, this one has no combat, nor rpg elements, and it's even less focused on backtracking with new abilities, but the platforming aspect is miles better and more developed than other metroidvanias, both in the controls/mechanics and in the level design and how it blends with traversal.
And yeah, had a hard time with the extra challenges but it was worth it. The trophy spots were impossible to find out without looking for the coordinates on a guide though.
Honestly I think assassins creed liberation
That's kind of hard to answer lol Hmmmmm you know I hear so much about Persona 4 as being the absolute best Vita game, but I think they're many more (not suggesting P4 is a bad game). I'm thinking of two games I like Dragon's Crown and Freedom Wars. Both are pretty fun, and I think FW is now selling for $15. If you can find it at Best Buy, I've actually seen it there for $11.
MLB: The Show.
The series must not have sold enough on Vita and now Sony isn't even bothering to release '16
Earth Defense Force 2 - already 19 dollars new.
I wouldn't consider that game underrated. That series seems to be purposely low-budget and sort of wore out their welcome after they continue to pump out mediocre sequels.
It feels so at home on the Vita. Unfortunately it seems to have come and gone without much notice.
I loved Counterspy - good choice!
