Top Ten Most Underrated Nintendo Video Games


The Top Ten

1 Super Mario Sunshine
2 Mario Kart: Double Dash!!

Uh, underrated? I swear that if you put a clip of MKDD then you're bound to get comments like "Nostalgia! " Don't get me wrong, I like the game.

3 Judge Dredd

The movie was mediocre but entertaining. The game was awesome - Magnolia

4 Demolition Man

I love the movie but the game is awesome as well. Believe me! - Magnolia

5 Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door

It's worth so much money now cause of high demand. It's amazing how much this game a boomed recently.

6 Xena: Warrior Princess: The Talisman of Fate

Released on the Nintendo 64! Decent and even entertaining - Magnolia

This is the best game on the n64

7 Alien 3

A bit repetitive but it was the first really entertaining Alien game. ELLEN RIPLEY! - Magnolia

8 F-Zero GX

My 2nd favorite gamecube game and my favorite racing game - great soundtrack

Best (and probably hardest) racing game ever - xandermartin98

I Never Played It Before

9 Mortal Kombat 4

First 3D mk game. I love some new fighters (Reiko, Fujin, Tanya, Kai, Jarek) - Magnolia

10 Ufouria: The Saga

The Contenders

11 RoboCop 2

Hey, some gamers hated it. Why? The first Robocop game was awesome and this one was very good. Fantastic soundtrack for the first stage! - Magnolia

12 Cave Story
13 Journey to Silius
14 Trax
15 Super Mario 3D Land
16 New Super Mario Bros Wii

No it should be so much higher on this list and to date its still one of my favourite Nintendo games under Mario Kart WII

17 The Krion Conquest
18 The Lawnmower Man

Great combination of "above average" run-n-shoot adventure, "hypnotic" first-person flying, and "brain-teasing" puzzles.. True innovation for that time - Magnolia

19 Faxanadu
20 Whomp'em
21 Mission: Impossible

What can I say? I do love movie-based games! - Magnolia

22 Pokemon Platinum

What Going to this game? - mewtwo1

This is so dumb - mewtwo1

23 Firestriker
24 RoboCop Versus The Terminator

Interesting game. I adore both characters - Magnolia

25 Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
26 Wario Land 4
27 Undertale

This is NOT underrated, and it's not even a Nintendo game! who ever put this on the list is a 5 year old.

28 Crystalis
29 Mario & Luigi: Partners In Time

It's so underrated, the shroobs are underrated, everything in the game is so underrated, this game was ruined the mario franchise... the final battle is the most underrated thing in the game...


30 Burai Fighter
31 Mario Kart 8

It has so many fun things to do this game should be way higher

32 Mario Party 7
33 Hotel Mario

I like this game.

34 Okami
35 The Twisted Tales of Spike McFang
36 Star Fox Zero

Awesome game, yet it did not get the good reception it deserves. I pray that this gets rereleased (or perhaps a sequel) on the Switch with better controls.

37 Bomberman 64
38 Comix Zone

One of my biggest 90s addictions! - Magnolia

39 Dick Tracy

Another addiction of mine. Awesome gameplay - Magnolia

40 Resident Evil Zero

It should have been a huge hit - Magnolia

41 Mario Kart Wii
42 Body Harvest
43 Metroid: Super Zero Mission
44 Super Metroid: Eris
45 Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

It is much better than most modern Mario games. Its presentation and gameplay both blew me away big time. Is it Kirby & the Amazing Mirror? No, but I give Super Mario games released in the 20th Century a 9/10.

46 Pokemon Blue
47 Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest
48 Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
49 Psycho Waluigi
50 Super Smash Flash 2
