Realm Royale

Underrated Battle Royale Games
Players can Travel Through Horse in Realm Royale

Starting off our list with a game from Hi-Rez Studios, which is Realm Royale. This game, I mean is so unique and incredible, it is in a league of its own. Featuring fantasized and funky gameplay, Realm Royale has a class system like Apex Legends. You get to choose a class from 5 unique characters.

Each character has its own perks and abilities. For example, the most popular class is Warrior, who has the ability to constantly throw Axe, Leap Jump, and most importantly Gain 5 Health Per Second. The classes, create a huge difference in gameplay, and to sum up, the game becomes really tactical, and you get a wide variety of playstyle options.

Darwin Project

The second game on our list is the Darwin Project. This game is one of my favorite games to be released this year. Darwin Project is another unique game with some of the most incredible features you will hear. The Battle Royale game is very different from others, as it features only 10 players in a single match.

Apart from the Satisfying Gameplay and Fluent Movement. Darwin Project, like Realm Royale, also has classes. These three classes, Jet Wings, Grapple Gauntlet, and Headhunter Drone, feature exclusive benefits. For example, Headhunter Drone will allow you to stay invisible, Grapple Gauntlet will benefit you with a shield, and Wings, of course, will allow you to fly and escape from fights.

Cuisine Royale

Underrated Battle Royale Game
This appearance says a lot about Cuisine Royale.

Cuisine Royale is a proper Battle Royale game with a huge following. The game is set in the WW2 era, and you will be playing in two maps, Normandy and Mexico. The overall gameplay and animations are really smooth. Visuals look stunning, and there isn’t a lot to complain about when it comes to gameplay and graphics.

Combat is really my favorite part of the game. That is to say, it is really realistic, and killing people with those WW2 guns is satisfying. Apart from that, the game is available in two modes. However, I found out that in the third person, it feels much better.

To conclude, Cuisine Royale is an incredible mixture of realistic & unrealistic features. Once you get going with its ranking system, I can confirm its very addicting.

Totally Accurate Battlegrounds

Characters look really funny in Totally Accurate Battlegrounds

Another Underrated Battle Royale game on our list is Totally Accurate Battlegrounds. This Battle Royale, in my opinion, has the perfect combination of graphics, gameplay, and combat.

Totally Accurate Battleground features a cartoonish sort of gameplay, which is enhanced by the use of weird physics. The graphics, at first glance, look pixelated because there are literally no details to anything. However, if you pay attention, the overall graphics look really smooth and suit the game.

  4. Enjoyable when playing with friends.
  5. Graphics match the game’s goofy theme with sharp character models.

Cons:

  1. Limited availability on PC only.
  2. Online servers may have issues.
  3. Gun physics can be frustrating for players.

Super Animal Royale

5 Underrated Battle Royale Games
A typical 1vs1 in Super Animal Royale

Super Animal Royale, unlike other games on our list, isn’t 3D. But don’t let that distract you from the fact that it is a really great game.

The Combat system is a really traditional 2D game style. Pick up guns and simply aim with the cursor and keep shooting. There isn’t a lot of scope and attachment gimmick involved. It is really plain and simple. In addition, the gameplay is really tactical unlike other Battle Royale games, where players do everything for a kill. Players in Super Animal Royale always go for positioning and avoiding fights. Often, you will see someone damage the opponent’s armor or health and then get away from him.

If you are a big fan of 2D games and prefer strategic gameplay combined with Battle Royale mod. I highly recommend you to go with Super Animal Royale.

  • Price on Steam: Two Versions, Free to play, and Full Edition Costs $6.5
  • Platforms: Microsoft Windows, Macintosh
  • Release Date: December 12, 2018
  • Review Quality: Very Positive.

  1. Unique 2D Battle Royale game.
  2. Distinct and well-designed character aesthetics.
  3. Offers a free version for players to try.
  4. Rewarding gameplay in every match.
  5. Fluid and satisfying gameplay experience on all platforms.

Cons:

  1. May be too simple for players accustomed to more competitive Battle Royale games.
  2. Lack of global servers, impacting Australian players.
  3. Controller controls are awkward, particularly for healing.
