Another vote for Beyond Good & Evil - one of my top 10 games of all time...maybe even top 5.

ReZ (Dreamcast import/PS2) - falling into a trance-like state while playing this is an amazing experience.
Ikaruga (Dreamcast import/Gamecube) - 2d shooter perfection
Tribes: Vengeance (PC) - Won't win any awards, but it's the first Tribes game I really got into, despite trying the others.  7,800 copies sold in North America in its first 2 weeks isn't just "really bad", it's catastrophic.

I was thinking about picking that up, but I'll wait for the price to go down a little bit.

Pikmin 2, amazing, beautiful game.
when it comes to it, the original pikmin was also awesome and unappreciated. The last boss was annoying as hell though.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Err, mine is underappreciated in the US, not sure about Japan but.

Gotcha Force(Gamecube)- 3D kind of shooter thing with horrible kid voices saying "Let's Do It!" "You Won't Stop Me!" and so on besides that you are a little toy but there are around 200(more than 200) little toys and you have landscapes such as Kid's rooms backyards schools underground sandboxes evil bases markets parks construction yards streets the city(you turn huge) and space(You turn humongous)theres alot more too! It's extremely fast-paced best game I played there's also a story and allies. Gamespot rated it a 5/10 I don't know why but oh well.
The power of purple! The Hundred Years War, which was won by the French started on the year of 1337.

Lords of the Realm II - I really enjoyed this title. Oddly enough, despite it being a sequel and there's a third one too, I don't know many gamers who have played this game. Surely they most exist but I don't see or hear this game mentioned locally or online so for that reason I say its underappreciated.

Samurai Showdown - That's right. I said it. Soul Calibur eat your heart out. Now there's a weapon based arcade style fighting game for you. The only one I ever played was the original in the arcade. I haven't seen or heard of the game ever since my local arcade got rid of it. And even then it didn't seem it was popular. There's been quite a few sequels from my understanding but no one I know really played it.

I could be wrong about these games being underappreciated though. Please tell me if I am wrong.

Samurai Showdown - ......There's been quite a few sequels from my understanding but no one I know really played it.

That's probably because almost all of them have been for the Neo Geo.  Samurai Shodown V is due out soon for the XBox, but it only got a 3 out of 5 from Maxim....so that means more like 1 out of 5 from credible reviewers.  ...either that, or 5 out of 5, since Maxim wouldn't know a good game unless they were paid enough to know that.

Samurai Warriors on XBOX.

And also the Dynasty Warriors series.

I realise they are el-cheapo games with average graphics but I find the gameplay addictive and (particularly with Samurai Warriors) I love the fact that they are fairly historically accurate, and almost every cut scene in the game is based on actual historic events.

If you look up the Warring States period in Japanese history on Wikipedia, you will find that it corresponds exactly to the game.

Freedom Fighters - GC, PS2 XB, and probally the PC it's a EA game so go figure

Some of the best AI I've ever seen. example, I told one of my AI buddies to attack an enemy bunker, on his way there he took cover behind a car fired some shots off, then continued towords the bunker. Once he took it, got good cover and fought off enemies trying to get it back. It's one of those games you just want to hug.
