Top 10 Most Underrated PlayStation 2 JRPGs

Like the PS1, the PS2 had numerous great JRPGs, but some don't seem to be remembered!

The Top Ten

1 Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria

Don't let the 2 stop you from playing it, in fact I would say this is the best jump in point

Valkyrie Profile was a cult classic... Valkyrie Profile 2 on the other hand was completely overlooked by most fans of the original Valkyrie Profile. Despite this, Valkyrie Profile 2 is a masterpiece that very little people talk about or know about. It often receives criticism for changing the formula of the original game but in my opinion, this only served to make the game better.

Valkyrie Profile 2 has quite possibly the most unique battle system of any RPG, it stays faithful to its side scrolling origins and its visuals are an absolute spectacle. Plus it has an incredible soundtrack to match it. It is one of those games where you will put the controller down just to take in its wonderful ambiance.

Best Graphics on the PS3... and it's not even a PS3 game... it could easily pass for it though. Plus the best OST in any videogame to date.

2 Shadow Hearts: Covenant

Like Vagrant Story this JRPG is rather dark and it has a unique and fun combat system! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

3 Tales of the Abyss

Underrated series as a howl and this is one of the bests! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

4 Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 V 1 Comment
5 Okage: Shadow King

This game is unique in every way! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

6 Grandia III

I believe this is the most underrated game of all time for two reasons:
1. Grandia itself is pretty unknown,
2. Grandia III is quite hated among fans, while being pretty good! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

7 Rogue Galaxy

A great Action-RPG, nothing more to say! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

8 Xenosaga Episode I: Der Wille Zur Macht

The name is still stupid and it does'nt hold up to Xenoblade or Xenogears! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

9 Dark Chronicles

Rocks
