I'm also joining in this rant.

ligname?

And I'm in any raiding you do. Sick of critics ignoring this game, despite the general user response being much higher then any 3DS game (I've seen people call it superior to Ocarina of Time (both original and 3D))

A game with good sales and reviews can still fall under the radar somehow, and for the record; an 'overrated' series can still have underrated gems. Much like how Zelda often has OoT overshadowing other good games like Wind Waker; certain Mario games will also overshadow others, when someone says 'Mario', people might say Mario 64 or Galaxy 1 / 2 without a second thought, ignoring anything else.

This is why I consider 3D Land an underrated game regardless; I'm well aware that other games deserve boosted attention, moreso than 3D Land, Kid Icarus: Uprising comes to mind. I'm sure that are underrated eShop games too, but I'm not interested in them.

What logic is that? So what you're saying is that it doesn't matter how many 10/10s, awards, and sales a game gets, it can still be called underrated because some people think it's not the best in the series? Bullcrap. No matter what, a game that sells over a million units and is consistantly praised to the sun does not deserve to be called underrated. It's a disservice to the entire library of the system, and it shows that you've yet to even reach the tip of the iceberg of that library if that is all you can come up with, which is a disservice to yourself.

Well it depends, how many gamers are there in the world total? Take that total to how many people hav the game, and it could be underrated even if it's over a million a million in far fewer then 25 million, now with KIU let's see there's 22 million 3DSes out there, so I'd say if it hasn't sold 10million yet then it's underrated

That's like saying Glee is an underated show because most people that own TV's don't watch it.

People have varying tastes in games, yourself included. Not everyone is going to like a game like Kid Icarus Uprising. Let's say someone has an XL and is lefthanded. Then there's people who don't like shooting stuff. Then there's people who just flat out don't use their 3DS systems. Then there's people who don't have a lot of money.

By your logic, absolutely every game ever made except for Wii Sports is underated.

Expecting that many sales for basically a new IP (last KI games was 2 decades ago) is unrealistic when the highest selling game hasn't hit 7 million. That's what screwed over the Atari 2600 and video games as a whole. Unrealistic expectations for E.T. and Pac-Man plus the fact that the games sucked.

Granted, I think KI should get at least double the sales (2 million would be a satisfactory mark) and at least 7 more points on Metacritic.

@moomoo A. People need to pick up their 3DS B. I don't like shooters but I loved KI (many people have said the same) C. It's $20 less then a typical console retail game, and goes for some pretty low prices at times (got mine for $15)

That's what I was hoping for. ;)
Seriously, no game has ever had the kind of attatchment rate that @Hokori wanted for Kid Icarus: Uprising, except for Wii Sports and possibly Halo: Combat Evolved during the XBOX's first year of release (and I know that the game lost that after a while, too.) COD, though having high sales, doesn't have every other person buying each entry, as well as any other War FPS or 2D Mario game.

It sold a million units (which is phenominal for a portable reboot of a franchise that was never that popular to begin with), and it's the 10th highest ranking 3DS game on Metacritics, 9th if you don't count Colors 3D since that's not actually a game. What more do you want?

OT: Crush 3D is underrated. It sold poorly as a PSP game, but I loved it on that console. Now it's on a system that better supports its unique playstyle, and it sells less (please note it barely sold anything on the PSP, so that's pretty dire)? That is just plain sad.

I would like it to be best-selling ga'me and at least a 95 on Metacritic.
Okay, unrealistic, but at the very least it should sell double the units and get more then a goddamn 83. F*** you Jim Sterling.

0.95 copies thus far actually. But that number will increase I promise you that. Still better then Sin and Punishment at just over a quarter-million.

And yes, Crush3D is tied with Nano Assault in my eyes as the most underrated title on the 3DS (excluding Uprising), and Nano Assault is going on the eShop so that won't be tied for long.

I think they should do what they did with Bit.Trip SAGA. Release for around $10-15 on the eShop. Also you should never make a game a GameStop exclusive, when they promote and profit most off of pre-owned games.

On one hand, any not guaranteed insta-success games (see: AAA sequels) on a Nintendo system selling well is more than I expect anymore. But I do maintain that it is 3DS' definitive must-have title and should still do better than it has because of that.

However if it makes you feel any better, compare it to Code of Princess supposed sales via VGchartz. It could always be soooo much worse is what I'm saying.

I'd say that 83 reflects the actual likeliness of a person enjoying it, to be honest. You forget that controls are actually pretty important to a lot of people, and not everyone has the patience to see it through. Not to mention not everyone's gonna like the mission structure, the cheesy dialogue, the story, the simplistic characters, the gameplay style. There's a lot to potentially dislike, so I'd say that's actually generous. That's just one man's opinion, though, but I think the fact that there are a number of critics who didn't like it means that chances are good that there are other people who aren't going to like it, too.

I disagree with everyone who is saying Kid Icarus Uprising and Super Mario 3D Land are underrated I mean people talk about those games so much and always say their the best games ever and its annoying because their not and they get so much attention. In my opinion two games i think are underrated are Virtues last reward and Professor Layton Miracle mask both these games are wonderful games have great stories, great gameplay, and great ratings and some people will never even bother to take a second look at them in a store.

Now for something completely different!
