The most underrated video games of this generation

17 current-gen video games that should have been bigger hits

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!)

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
