Default GamesRadar - 2009's Best Under-The-Radar Games

November 30th, 2009, 14:44
Games Radar has listed 16 amazing PC games that people might have missed or ignored. Torchlight, Trine and Demon's Souls get mentioned in the article.
Torchlight
Action/role-playing fans may be anxiously awaiting the release of Diablo III, but the wait got much easier to bear with Torchlight. Developed by the same team behind the ill-fated Mythos, formerly of Flagship Studios, Torchlight combines the obsessive, loot-gathering gameplay that makes its genre so addictive with a gorgeous art style and character designs. Given the promise and ultimate disappointment that was Hellgate: London, it's understandable that many were skeptical of Torchlight. But the finished product is something that no action-RPG fan should miss, and is one of the most addictive experiences in recent memory.
Trine
Yet another indie game we never saw coming, Trine is an action-platformer that makes up for a lack of variety with some great combat and puzzles. Featuring three playable characters that you can switch between at any time, the game enables you to choose how best to progress. Use the wizard's magic to create platforms to jump on, use the knight to bash through enemies or simply use the thief's grappling hook to swing across chasms. It's completely up to you.
Demon's Souls
In an age when games seem to be getting easier and more accommodating, Demon's Souls stands apart. It's brutally difficult and doles out many, many more punishments than it does rewards. It at times feels archaic, harking back to frustrating 8- and 16-bit classics, but adds enough new stuff that critics have been giving it near-universal praise. Who would've thought that the best-rated RPG of the year would be the one that makes you want to break your controller in half?

Lucky (yet another must-have rpg this fall?) I do have ps3 too. Just bought the slim version with 500gb hd.

Brutally challenging and utterly engrossing, this innovative role-playing game is one of the year's best.

There are not many good rpgs on PS3 so this comes as a good news. Im going to order it right away. The game looks good:

About 90% of those games can't be under-the-radar. If they never made someone's radar its because its broken and they should fix it.

Cool to see Dead Space: Extraction on the list, my GF just bought it for me this past week. If it's even half as good as Dead Space, I'll be happy.
