Now that you remind me, there's been some WarioWare music I've liked over the years.

For me, it's Four Seasons from WarioWare, Inc. Mega Microgames. The song always sounded lovely to me, even though I wouldn't know what the lyrics meant until years later.

This. I love that music. Actually, I liked all the music in the original GBA game. I never thought it was "underappreciated", though.

Wario Land 4, although it's a hell of a lot more well known that it once was, and people seem to appreciate the soundtrack a lot more now.

For more obscure ones though... Wario Master of Disguise and Mario Pinball Land. For the former:

for the latter, maybe..

Both are awful games, but have great soundtracks.

Some could say this tech demo too...

It wasn't even officially released, announced or anything else. Just a Nintendo tech demo based on Peach's Castle meant to promote the power of the Gamecube.

Donkey Kong Land is underrated because personally I think it's the best game soundtrack ever

.......... mostly because it was one of the first games I was obsessed with. Also because Dave Wise is a legend. How many times do people mention Stickerbrush Symphony when talking about the best video game tracks ever?

If wére talking individual songs, that puzzle room in the middle of the Palace of Shadows in PM:TTYD and the Ice dungeon in Minish Cap are the best 90s JRPG songs that aren't actually in traditional JRPGs.

Not sure why... But I really like some of the songs from the DSiWare game "Hot and Cold" like...

Those are the only two I could find online

Going through the thread.... +1 for Ristar, outside of Donkey Kong it's probably my favourite in the thread thus far. Also, underrated or not, you can't talk about video game musics on the interwebs without mentioning two things. So I'll do them both in one video, Guile's Theme and Smooth McGroove

The music of Suikoden Tierkreis definitely comes to mind. Not many people played the game, but the soundtrack was something special.

In fact all the Suikoden music is brilliant.

I miss Suikoden

Isn't it obvious that Falco Lombardi is actually a parrot?

Jamestown, but that'll probably be new to most users here seeing as this is a Nintendo site.

I make Pixel Art on occasion, and sometimes sell them as Game Assets.

I agree completely, Smooth McGroove does things with his voice I thought to be impossible!

Mercury Meltdown Revolution Wii: Imagine Marble Madness with a bit of science and puzzle elements. Awesome game with a surprisingly varied soundtrack.

Was Mariobro4. No, I'm not taking off my backpack...it's important.

Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures has an amazing 8-bit soundtrack. I have it in my playlist on my phone.

But there is this one other track from Bike Rider DX (which is on 3DS eShop). This game's soundtrack as a whole is nothing too special, but there is one track that really stood out to me: the theme from the Ram Rider stages.

On topic though, Basically the entire soundtrack of Paper Mario TTYD is fantastic, which is a shame that it's so overlooked outside of Doopliss Battle and Title theme. The soundtrack for Kirby 64 is really good, and relatively overlooked. Stuff like "Quiet forest" and "Above the clouds", just, dang.

Twilight Symphony. Enough Said.

My cat Ivory approves of your posts. Please continue to make more of them so that she does not consume my soul.

Odin Sphere, a thousand times Odin Sphere. The soundtrack is just brilliant!

Also, PLOK! Listen to the quality not even Nintendo could achieve on SNES! It's some really awesome stuff, and some tracks go on for several minutes without a loop!

Kirby's Adventure Wii (Return to Dreamland for NA), what a brilliant soundtrack. It's a shame that game's music is automatically attached in many people's mind to the horrific "Hungry Hungry Kirby" event in Smash Wii U (where "horrific" is a severe understatement).

Kirby's Epic Yarn had one of my favorite soundtracks ever.

When I close my eyes, I see pixilated blood.

Mistwalker might as well have advertised Lost Odyssey as "That time Nobuo Uematsu scored a 7th generation game". Guilty of clashing with the game's tragic storyline at times, but a great soundtrack nonetheless. Here's a sample:

World map theme - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SaCkn9l3Rg4
Regular battle theme (this song is so good and the encounter rate is so low, I actually never got tired of hearing this!) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3l3V-2Da9ug
First boss theme - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fR8FPQ2zLiI

Swords and soldiers 2 comes to mind as a recent example. That is one hell of a soundtrack, worth the purchase alone.
