Super Cars 2 is a great game but I don't know if it's underrated, it's a very popular game.

I totally agree with you ,Zool is a very overrated game.

Not on this board, I'm afraid that if I say I liked Zool in here, people will point at me and laugh and go "there's that guy who likes Zool" - and I won't be able to post here anymore 'cause nobody would take me seriously.

I liked Zool2 a lot. Just Zool 1 had loading times too longers, at least my copy. Apart of other issues respecting colisions and gameplay.. if I recall well.

I originally hated Zool 2. It seemed too Nintendo-like where you collect the 100 million items all over the screen and graphics seemed too flat and cartoonish. But eventually I started liking it more and more - huge levels, nice copper rainbows, good music. I now consider it one of the top 5 Amiga platform games.

Zool is another story. I think this must have the flatest graphics in any Amiga game ever. I don't know why anyone would bother with Zool when the much better Zool 2 is out there.

the Interphase game i've played was a 3d vertex space combat type game.

Uridium 2 is an awesome shooter
Superfrog is just a plain must-have title

imo games like Agony and Lionheart are overrated becuase while the sprites look great the game play sucks or it has been at a sacrifice of colours that people dont seem to notice. from what i've played of agony most of it is grey and most of lionheart is green. however this is my opinion.

Kyrandia seems kinda sucky.

F/A18 Interceptor deserves more attention and anyone thats run it on an '030 knows the true meaning of smooth gaming.

Brutal Homicide is an addictive 2-player PD game i never hear about and same with Knights

hehehe. SWOS, Turrican 2, Speedball 2 overrated? Buhahaha.
Leander is very good for me - but underrated? First AA reviews - 91 %
Myth - superb game - one of the best mix of beat'em up and platformer. Underrated? I don't thik so - 96 % in AA review. Wolfchild - 92 or 93 % in AA review. Benefactor had very good reviews too.

Underrated for me:

Lionheart (one of the best amiga games ever!!)
Traps'n Treasures (superb mix of platformer, adventure and puzzle)
Fire and Brimstone - yes, I like it.
Prime Mover & Vroom - two the most underrated amiga racers.
Disposable Hero - for me one of the best amiga shooters.
Elf - very good action/adventure with superb music (level one !!)
Jim Power - i've completed it without cheats - music, graphs, gameplay - very good.

Fire & Ice have no gameplay? Mcdonald's Land is better? Are you sick?

Overrated:

Zool
Yo Joe! - good graphs, good gameplay, But too easy - I've completed it after one day . (without cheats)
Wonder Dog - bleee- this is platformer or shit?

Haha - most of Lionheart is in green? Yeah - in Town, in Caverns, Castles or in Lava Levels . Did you play this one only in first levels (forest/swamps)?

Sorry for my english.

Mcdonald's Land really is a fine game. Got through most of it once, and it r0x.
I dont happen to find Yo!Joe overatd, it actually is not a very well known nor loved game.
Disposable hero takes a close number 2 at my Amiga list of kickarse shmups. #1 is Uridium no doubt Thething with Disposable Hero that gives it a #2 position is that it steals too much from other shmups, while Uridium is more original. Great thing about D.Hero is that it feels quite like a japanese shooter, and that is great.

- The Adventures of Robinhood

In what other game can you shoot your love interest dead, attend her funeral, massacre all the monks at the cermony, enter the castle disguised as a monk, bribe the guards when they try to hang you, repeat till the castle is empty, and then claim it as your own only to be beat to death by the town's people for committing genocide and filling the local grave yard?

I'm not evil - I'm just creative.

You can actually do that? Wow, I better give that game a second chance.

I'm very impressed with your achievement. I love attempting to do things in games that you're not supposed to do. Like trying to come out of the castle with the laser in SOTB, then completing the rest of the game backwards (with dislocated fist, running backwards). Or luring every guy from one level in Doom to be crushed under a wall in a secret room (leaving the level neat and body-free). Maybe there should be a thread "Bizarre Game Achievements".

a500: the Doom trick sounds too time consuming. I only like fast simple things.

- Other Robinhood things

You can also wait on the church being built, the sherriff goes there to get married and you can shoot him during the ceremony.

Oh-Oh-Oh and Friar Tuck is tubby. I like to unleash him on the town's folk and watch him get beat up. He can usually take two or three of them.

Honest I'm not evil.

Anyone remember 'Ugh!'? That game was awesomely silly. I loved the music in it - I'll have to load it and see if it's how I remember.

Yeah i tried AB2. It would have been a cool game if it was completed with music.

By the way there was also Alien Bash 1 which has very bad graphics! Atari 2600 quality!

Most of the ones i'd have chosen for the 5 underestimated/overestimated games. But i have to say that No Second Prize was the finest Motocycle game on the Amiga and was well underated even though it got great reviews. Panza Kick Boxing was another.

Zool had to be the most overhyped game on the Amiga, especially when people were saying in the media that it would be Amiga's answer to Sonic and Mario.

I thought Full Contact was neither overrated or underrated...it was just an average game, needed alot more, IMO. Still, I played it a fair bit, and managed to complete it without cheating. I remember the last fight took me over an hour to win (that's just one bout.)
