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 F-Zero GX

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

Best (and probably hardest) racing game ever - xandermartin98

I Mean:F-Zero GX Has a Every Good Soundtrack

Forget What I Said

5 Demolition Man

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

6 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.

7 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

8 Alien 3

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

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 Super Mario 3D Land
15 Trax
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 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...


27 Wario Land 4
28 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.

29 Crystalis
30 Hotel Mario

I like this game.

31 Burai Fighter
32 Mario Kart 8

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

33 Mario Party 7
34 Okami
35 The Twisted Tales of Spike McFang
36 Mario Kart: Super Circuit

Most underrated Mario Kart. - computerfan0

37 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.

38 Bomberman 64
39 Comix Zone

One of my biggest 90s addictions! - Magnolia

40 Dick Tracy

Another addiction of mine. Awesome gameplay - Magnolia

41 Resident Evil Zero

It should have been a huge hit - Magnolia

42 Mario Kart Wii
43 Body Harvest
44 Metroid: Super Zero Mission
45 Super Metroid: Eris
46 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.

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

A fan game.
