Wow, awesome topic! I have countless faves that got s**t reviews. Only naming 3:
- Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood
- Ninja Blade
- Killer Is Dead
Earthblood has countless flaws. But it gets points from me as a schlocky guilty pleasure because it's one of few video games where you can be a werewolf, and the gameplay is decent if you don't mind hack n slash predominant combat. Would get a 10/10 in the PS2 or Xbox 360 generations. Elder Scrolls Online has better werewolf combat mechanics. Supernatural creatures should always equal supernatural powers, like a Howl Stun or pouncing on to enemies and stomping them. It can't always be about them claws!
Ninja Blade is basically a Ninja Gaiden Clone from '09. I'm a minority in thinking it's better than Ninja Gaiden lol. You cut down hordes of these Halo Flood-like monsters, and it's pretty awesome action. The main character reminds me of Snake Eyes. He's a shinobi who's part of a government task force.
Killer Is Dead's often the most overlooked of Grasshopper Manufacture's small catalog, but it's a bizarre assassin ride I'd try any day over No More Heroes or Shadows of the Damned.
