Why is this in the Playstation 3 forum if it's not exclusively PS3 titles?
I don't know about "of all time" but these are my picks for underrated gems:

1. Opoona (Wii)
2. Battletanx: Global Assault (N64/PS)
3. Lollipop Chainsaw (PS360)
4. Star Fox Adventures (GCN)
5. 007 Everything or Nothing (I don't know if this is underrated but I think it's a great game that kind of gets lost in the mire of fairly mediocre 007 games)

Because I originally intended it to be only Playstation 3, but then last minute I decided to allow all consoles.

Heavy Rain (a very well known two million-selling game) is now underrated is it?

I agree with Bully. I loved Bully. Where's Bully 2? I'd rather have that then GTA 5.

Dude, I can barely think of 5 PS3 games I thought were great, let alone ones I thought were underrated. Heck, half the games I've seen people mention here I'd personally consider overrated, or at least duly ignored or criticized.

I guess if I had to name one, it'd be King of Fighter XIII. It's actually the best KOF has been in many years, yet I don't think they could even give it away - seriously, it was free for a month, and I don't know anyone that went for it...not even Fighting fans...

Little King's Story for Wii and Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes on PSN are a couple of relatively overlooked gems.

Everyone knows the name Syphon Filter, I don't think it's underrated. Maybe a bit overlooked, but definitely not underrated.

That legend that mentioned Dynamite Heady! I never forgot about that game, but none of my friends never heard of it! I used to have a poster and everything!!!
"HEADY, HEADY, HEADY!"

Anyway, from a UK perspective;
• SOS: the Final Escape - PS2
• Shadow of Memories - PS2
• Thrasher Skate and Destroy
• Alundra (I know that is on the PSN Store... but no-one I speak to never played it !!!)

That is all for now

Currently Playing: ---> MGS V: PP (PS4) - Until Dawn (PS4) - Dota 2 (PC) & Loads of Indies! (long live the Indies)

I hooked up my Ps2 last night to play some Digital Devil Saga, but alas, It seems to have finally developed the disk read error. Still, cd-roms seems to load just fine so I dropped in my old favourite. SHOX. I still love this game! As with most EA-Big titles back then it just screams pick-up-and-play. In many ways its a throwback to the glory days of arcade rally games of yesteryear like Sega Rally, n in some ways it betters them. Smooth graphics n a rock solid 60FPS also keep things ticking along. I honestly dont know anyone else who has played this gem. Its criminal. Nowadays it can be purchased for less that £2, so theres no excuses anymore if you haven't played it. I hope Im not the only one here...

heres a review anyway from IGN (gamespot has one too but it was the same score pretty much) if your interested in how it is and haven't tried it

The number 1 underrated game ever is;

Chiki Chiki Boys / mega twins - Megadrive

What an absolute gem. The reviews were a bit crap (Im super suspicious of them all) but I rented it from the local video shop as part of 3 for £3 daily rentals. Then again. Then again. Then asked to buy it from them.

For a megadrive game its polished to perfection, has rpg lite elements and has loads of variety. Its only really comparable to the Megadrives very best in terms of polish and music. Its easily the best game I had no expectations of and one of the best games on Megadrive. Up there with Sonic 2, Streets of Rage 2, Shining Force 2 and SF2 CE.

@Beaston61 Your choice of Skate or Die has just reminded me of Aggresive Inline on the Gamecube. That was absolutely amazing. Im trying to think of people who may have played that.
