    The criteria for a good sequel is almost contradictory; it's a dangerous mix of old and new, with just enough old to serve as a sturdy foundation and just enough new to prevent boredom and apathy. But when not perfectly balanced, a sequel can prove disastrous.

    Bioshock was disappointing in some ways....but its combat was bloody excellent and made up a lot.

    Speak the truth hussy!

    From what I can gather, the one thing the majority of the choices here have in common is when higher ups meddle with the development process.

    For me, this is why this generation it has seen pretty much every major sequel from a major Japanese publisher, both through internal mismanagement and outsourcing turn out badly.

    The only exception (although I'm not a huge fan) is Street Fighter EX 4 which did help bring back the beat em ups and sadly the endless iterations that doomed the genre before.

    The cure is to let the developers retain control of their works and for the business side to only get involved when hubris (GT5) and madness (MGS4) sets in.

    Bioshock 2 for me... seemed like the story was fleshed out on a coffee break by committee.

    I think some of you should probably look up what sequel means.

    In keeping with the topic, I think DMC has gone downhill. To the point where I only played 4 for about an hour before I really couldn't be bothered with it anymore.

    Doom 3 - it was ok, but had lost what made Doom fun.
    Burnout Paradise - a good racing game, but it wasn't Burnout anymore.

    Well Bioshock 2 didn't have the same impact as the first in terms of narrative, and certainly lacked a twist in the tale... But it did make up for it in the actual game play. I can't play the first now without thinking how clumsy the combat is.
