Most underrated game this generation?

Deus Ex Human Revolution. The prequel to one of the best games ever made, it's such as shame that it was incredibly overlooked in 2011. It had everything going for it: atmosphere, great characters, an excellent music score, and open gameplay that stayed fairly true to its roots(except for those crappy boss fights). And there's a possibility for another game.

So tell me. What's your choice for most underrated game this generation?
Currently playing: COD: BOII, Hitman Absolution, Infamous Collection.

Alpha Protocol
The writing was on the wall with Bioware the minute you could completely void all of your decisions with one choice in KOTOR.

That's funny, I just posted a review titled "one of the most underrated games of all time".
Technically a last gen game, but it's sort of related.

The Saboteur is usually my pick in topics like this. Incredibly fun game, interesting setting and use of color, great lead character.

However, I'm tempted to give it to Fishing Resort on the Wii because that game gets almost no attention or love, yet is a really amazing game. The fishing comes closest to capturing the fun of real fishing of any game I've played, and there is a lot else to do besides fish. It is one of those games that, if you saw it on the shelf, your first thought might be "Shovelware!" but it is anything but.

Aliens: CM

Everyone judges it based on what they wanted it to be rather than what it is. Thus, it truly is this gens most underrated game.

Ninety Nine Nights 2. The average score this game holds is it AAA? Nope...but it shouldn't have scored like a broken piece of s*** either.
Welcome to Gamefaqs, where trolls run rampant. I buy used games.Pacers 3- whatever...I give up

Deus ex is underrated? I thought it sold well for a sequel.

Tales of Vesperia is underrated.
