SEGA It's no longer thinking, but the occasional topic still pops up. Besides, the Dreamcast doesn't really feel old enough to be called Retro.

Question Some great mediocre games?

It seems that nowadays, a game has to get all 9's or 10's across the board for someone to even give it a once over. With the advent of easy acess to reviews (internet) and modern day advertising, many games that most consider "above average" are being totally overlooked by the everyday gamer.

So heres the question: What game(s) did you REALLY enjoy that received only average reviews?

For me, I would have to go with:

1)Battle Arena Toshiden 2(PSX)- Although this game never even came CLOSE to living up to the standards set by the original, it supplied me with hours upon hours of frantic enjoyment. Its probablly my most played fighter of all time... even more than the mighty Soul Calibur

2)Breath of Fire III (PSX)- Lost in the RPG confusion way back when, I was one of the few lucky ones that managed to pick this one up at release. After being boggeed down by less than impressive reviews, I didnt have many expectations for this game, but to be honest, it really blew me away. Far better than most RPGs at this time. A real killer storyline with great characters. Maybe a little drawn out though.

3)Quest 64(N64)- OK, fine. Its crap. I'll admit it. But dammit, I had a great 10 hours playing this cute RPG through, start to finish. And I've done it once or twice more since then.

Shadowman-better than i thought it would be, it just became too fucking hard after a while.

Tokyo Extreme Racer-the most fun i've had with a racer in a long time.

Ack, GR I hate your Gene list. Virtual Bart WAS complete shit. Honestly, that is the second worst game I have ever played and probably ever will play. First place goes to Tommorow Never Dies for the PSX.

Well at least you don't have Boogerman in there.

FF8 - didn't get bad reviews, but is a universaly whined and bitched about game. I, however, love it.

Grand Theft Auto - sure the graphics suck, but I love the freedom of it.

Army Men 3D - The multiplayer rules.

Jet Moto 1, 2, 3 - I always loved this series and don't see why it gets bashed.

Evil Zone on the PSX.
Reviewers hated it, most gamers hated it (I think), but I liked the attitude. After a while I found it really cheap and bought. It is a fun little game, wish some of the character models were a little better, but the game has a lot of personality.

No, no, no, no, no.

You still misuderstand. AVERAGE games. Onces that didnt receive great reviews. Shenmue was heralded as the greatest game ever by DailyRadar and IGN. Hardly an "average game"

Even Videogames.com rated it 7.8.... a fairlygood score. Im talking about games that scored 6's all across the board, but you had fun with none the less.

Sword of the Bezerk is a good example. I'd like to give this one a try.
