Underrated PS1 games

Discussion in 'Games' started by UnKillFill, Mar 4, 2018.

  1. Blood Omen feels like the missing link between Zelda and Diablo. Soul Reaver has Tomb Raider gameplay plus dual worlds and a very enthralling gothic atmosphere.

    The Shadow

    The Shadow The Case of the Antagonistic Autodialer

  2. I'm gonna add some games that I just remembered:
    Vagrant Story. Hard as fuck though from what I remember.
    Colony Wars, Apocalypse, Loaded and Gekido.

  3. Tecmo's Deception and Kagero: Deception 2 are also great games. You play a bad guy killing RPG stereotypes in a mansion full of traps.

  4. Even though nearly every video game magazine and reviewer hated it, I still love Star Wars: Masters of Teras Kasi to this day and I really wish they would make another Star Wars fighting game with a better and more modern gameplay engine.

    It was basically Mortal Kombat 4 but with characters from the original Star Wars trilogy (as well as some of the Expanded Universe characters of the time, like Jodo Kast and Mara Jade)

    Another underrated fighting game from the tail end of the PS1 era was Digimon: Rumble Arena.

  5. MK4 was much better than that POS game.
    And MK4 wasn't really good either, just merely an ok game (a castrated UMK3/MKT imo. No exclusive dial up combos, run being way faster than UMK3, and projectiles being slower meant it was a faster and more accesible but shallower UMK3 in 2.5D)

    I will add that a modern day Star Wars fighting game done right could be awesome though.

  6. I will admit that childhood nostalgia probably made me blind to the myriad flaws of Star Wars: Masters of Teras Kasi.

  9. I always refer to Vagrant Story as proto-Dark Souls. You will die. A lot. You will get frustrated. A lot. But once everything finally clicks, it's a damn good game and will give you a rosy glow of accomplishment once you beat it. Hell, there's even a New Game + that opens up one or two areas that were blocked off during your first playthrough. Plus the story is full of excellent plot twists. [/sperg]

  10. The Enix America, Inc. era Dragon Quest games didn't really have accents, though VII's localization suffered heavily from being rushed due to how massive the script was, with many grammatical and spelling errors throughout the entire game.

    Enix America, Inc. was a very short lived American subsidiary of Enix,. It was the second attempt by Enix to publish thier own games in the West after Enix America Corporation was closed in 1995. It lasted from 1999 to 2003 when Enix merged with Squaresoft. The following Dragon Quest games were localized under it, all keeping the Dragon Warrior name that was used for the NES era games in North America:

    Gameboy Color:
    -Dragon Warrior I+II
    -Dragon Warrior III
    -Dragon Warrior Monsters 2: Cobi's Journey
    -Dragon Warrior Monsters 2: Tara's Adventure

    -Dragon Warrior VII
    -Torneko: The Last Hope

    There was also advertisements on the back of the Dragon Warrior VII instruction manual for a localization of the PS1 remake of Dragon Quest IV, but at some point it was dropped

    In case you were wondering, the original Dragon Warrior Monsters was published in the west by Eidos, it is the only Dragon Quest game to be released outside of Japan after IV for the NES but before the formation of the Enix America, Inc

  11. Alien Trilogy was a good PS1 game.

    It's pretty much your typical 1990's Doom Clone FPS game, but set in the Alien universe. Even if it can be a little generic, it is a solid game and I like that you have both Xenomorph enemies and human enemies who work for Weyland-Yutani like security guards, androids, and mercenaries.

    Alien Resurrection for the PS1 is more like a Quake clone than a Doom clone, but it's a decent FPS for its time, and it's one of the few cases where the game was a lot better than the movie it was based on.

  12. Omega Boost, Project Overkill and Devil Dice

    Project Overkill does have some issues with it's control, but it's a rather fun and difficult game for it's time.

  13. I second Tactics Ogre; keep in mind that the PS1 and PSP versions play drastically differently, though the PSP one has more content.

    I don't think I've seen anyone ever mention Wild 9, made by the studio that did Earthworm Jim. If I remember correct, it was especially ugly for a PS1 game but the mechanics were satisfying.
