15 Criminally Underrated PS4 & Xbox One Games You Must Play

15. Ryse: Son Of Rome

Microsoft

Ryse: Son of Rome was a game Microsoft just couldn't sell players on in the run up to release. With the company being demonized by gamers for their unfriendly consumer ideas for the Xbox One at the time, everything the publisher announced was met with ridicule and caution.

As a result, many people had written off Ryse before they had even gotten their hands on it. A shame, considering the title is actually a rather competent third person action brawler.

Boasting visceral executions and satisfying - if rather basic - combat, this linear third person hack and slasher provided consumers with a way more solid experience than many players and critics made out.

There's definitely flaws to be found in the title, and the repetitive nature of the combat and lack of content might not have justified its full price at the time, but well over a year later, picking up a discounted copy of the title might just be one of the best video game bargains out there.
