Going off ones released in the west I'd say Guerrilla War. I also think it's one of the best games ever tbh.

I consider Simon's Quest as very under-rated, like E.T. got a bad wrap. I classify it with TMNT as bad games we love, cause they are both are called bad games, but everyone knows of TMNT cause they played it a ton cause most popular game of its time. I think Simon's Quest is like that, minus being uber-popular, but for those of us who loved it, think of it as a gem.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project

Everybody knows about and has nostalgia for the first two TMNT games on the NES, but most people never played TMNT III: The Manhattan Project since it was a late NES release after gamers had already moved on to the SNES. And that's unfortunate since TMNT III: The Manhattan Project was by far the best TMNT game on the NES and it even gives Turtles in Time a run for it's money as the best TMNT game of all time.

Hmmm....I don't hear much about this game. And this is the only game that comes to mind at the moment...

I don't know if it's underrated, but Willow is a pretty great little action RPG. Zelda Link to the Past copied both its sword swipe (which allows you to hit enemies on a diagonal) and its multi-floor dungeons.

Spelunker. And just the franchise in general, very popular in Japan.

I see so many people adore Spelunky (an American Indie rip-off of Spelunker) but never a care for the original. In fact last time I brought up this game

I recall someone here on GS calling it a "Spelunky rip-off" 'T_T

Bio Miracle Bokute Upa is great. I got this while trying to figure out what to spend my last Wii shop points on. Probably the best nes platformer with no plumbers I've ever played.
