Most Underrated Nintendo 64 GamesDzDeadlyy There are a lot of great games out there for the N64 that just got swept under the rug by the bigger titles.
The Top Ten
Agreed! - best soundtrack for a game. You think you've explored an area - then the game forces you to backtrack and you find out that you've only seen a small part of it. Then you discover a landing bay which can take you to a whole new planet to explore! No game I've played since has the same game-play and level mechanics that this masterpiece has. I almost voted for body harvest but there can only be one.
Great soundtrack, great graphics, great gameplay. Not to mention one of the first 3rd person shooters to do it right. This game was another masterpiece by Rare, that for some reason didn't get the praise it no doubt deserved. As the creator of this list, I hope this game stays at number 1 where it belongs. - DzDeadlyy
Holy ! When I saw the title of this I thought: Oh I think JFG is not gonna be one of the first because is not well known, and when I clicked I saw number 1!... Yes this game is awesome, most underrated game ever indeed
Loved this game and still do! The ONLY Complaint I have is too short!
This was one of the first games I ever played on the Nintendo 64. It is truly a shame that I do not own this game anymore, it was such a blast and a huge part of my childhood.
It wasn't made by rare, but honestly I remember me and my friends playing this more then goldeneye. Why it never received any praise is beyond me. - DzDeadlyy
I enjoyed this more than GOLDENEYE007 - shawnmccaul22
Its only flaw is it's not goldeneye - Retroman64
This game was by no means a failure or overlooked by the public. But for the quality of gameplay and originality this game offered, it definitely deserved much more. Nintendo saw its potential and went on to make 2 sequels. The thousand year door was in my opinion one of the greatest games I've ever played. - DzDeadlyy
It's a Mario RPG seams cheesy at first, but it's really good.
This game is really fun - FlamingYveltal
Easily my favorite Doom game. Mixes the great level design and intensity of Doom 1 and 2, but upgrades the horror with its excellent soundtrack and darker atmosphere.
One of the best doom games ever still better than Doom 3 and Halo
This game I will always remember as a child. It was dark, a little scary and one hell of a trip to "deadside". To the opening sence to the very end. The soundtrack is perfect for each level/place you vist. This will always be a personaly favourite of mine.
If you haven't played this game and got a n64, get this game. If you don't, get both and enjoy.
This is such a fun game to play, so much do E. G, the missions, training and death matches. But the best part of the game is the 4 player multiplayer, this game is extremely underrated and deserves far more recognition
Better than mario kart if only it wasn't for the over-childish undertones
Almost as good as Mario Kart 64
I've never seen anyone talk about this installment, yet it's my personal favorite in the series. It's a good, but underrated game. - Maplestrip
Got to love a game where the developer spells their OWN NAME wrong on the title screen! - Xean45
Best by far of the 193 harvest moon games
This game was the vs go to game next to smash bros
Used to play hours on multiplayer and deploy turrets all day
Heavily underrated game... Great multiplayer and singleplayer content.
One of the few RPGs on the N64 (and much better than Quest), a great athmosphere and a unque combat system
Um...you're kidding me, right? It's a great game, but the OPPOSITE of underrated. - Garythesnail
Best game of all time except MAYBE other Zelda games.
It had simple mechanics that anyone could use, a great soundtrack, a good multiplayer mode, and a great single player adventure.
This game truly was amazing. The soundtrack, replay-ability, graphics (for the time); all of which were so revolutionary for the time. This game deserves to be on this list.
This is the best Zelda I have ever played.
Awesome shooter, over the shoulder, pin on walls. Really fun. Good story.
This game has the best n64 graphics in my opinion. It's unfortunate that it was only released in Japan.
One of my first games and personal favourites, I remember it was very difficult for me at the time, I recently played it
The N64 is home to so many underrated games. Super Mario 64 needs more praise for having a very sharp, artistic, retro presentation. So do most other Classic Nintendo games.
First first party Nintendo game to have online play
First F-Zero title to have online support!
First Game to Connect to Other Games
Same as Pokemon Stadium but with additional Pokemon and items
This game is so underrated it got a T rating from the ESRB when Star Fox 64 got an E rating
and there basically the same thing get it together!
