Here are the 10 most underrated RPGs on PS Plus Premium.

10. Cris Tales

The newest game on this list, Cris Tales is a throwback to classic JRPGs with a heavy emphasis on time travel in both story and battles. It also has a striking storybook art style and killer combat animations.

9. Moonlighter

In Moonlighter, you balance your desire for adventure with the more mundane concern of making a living. Its shop-keeping and dungeon-delving segments are both satisfying in very different ways.

8. Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Despite sounding like a C-tier paperback novel, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning features solid action combat and a fun, customizable skill system.

THQ Nordic
7. Child of Light

Child of Light’s fast-paced combat and fun platforming already make it worth recommending, and its gorgeous art and music push it over the top. Its emotional story is written in an original rhyming style, adding yet another way Child of Light stands out.

6. Pillars of Eternity

Pillars of Eternity is an epic RPG inspired by D&D games like Baldur’s Gate. It features real-time combat with tons of skills that’s strategic and action-packed.


Airship Syndicate

5. Battle Chasers: Nightwar

Battle Chasers: Nightwar is for fans of strategic turn-based combat where distinct characters pull off surprising combos from the developer that made Ruined King: A League of Legends Story.

4. Children of Morta

Children of Morta is one of the best co-op RPGs in ages. It charts the story of a family using their unique abilities to protect their home from an awakening evil.

3. Atelier series

The sprawling Atelier series follows a host of likable characters. The games emphasize crafting more than most RPGs while still offering great turn-based combat.

Koei Tecmo Games
2. Disgaea series

Disgaea is an interesting series, to say the least. It’s packed with absurdly dense mechanics for improving characters and items, plus tough tactical battles. If you have a few hundred hours to spare, Disgaea will fill them easily.

NIS America

1. Dark Cloud 1 & 2

The cult classic Dark Cloud games combine action combat and dungeon crawling with a healthy dose of crafting and town building. Its unique stew of mechanics hasn’t quite been replicated since.
