    ME2 is the game of the generation for me so far. I really can't understand anyone not liking it. Just a stunning game from start to finish.
    Yeah, this. It improved everything that worked from the original & fixed the things that didn't. Absolutely superb game.

    the getaway 2 was very bad as well!

    Good call. The first was good but needed some improvement to be great, the second just made it worse! Still wish we got the third one though I was heartbroken when they scrapped it.

    Did you know that pointless Home thingie on PS3 was orginally to be a multplayer lobby for Black Monday?

    Not sure if it really falls into the class of sequel, but any finial fantasy game after FFX. FFX-2 onwards were terribad games.

    X-2 does, as will XIII-2. Advent Children, Crisis Core etc.. Does. The After Years does.

    Otherwise, no, each numbered Final Fantasy game isn't a sequel.

    Halo 2.

    It just seemed dull and rather claustrophobic compared to the first. The guns didn't feel right, I guess the dual wielding had something to do with that. Too much story or a bad one ruined things. On the bright side multiplayer was quite awesome other than the jump glitches and standbying.

    Similar themes != a sequel

    Kingdom Hearts share similar themes to Final Fantasy(outside of character appearances), Chaos Rings share similar themes to Final Fantasy, hell, That new Lord of Arcana or whatever it's called probably shares similar themes to Final Fantasy, yet none of these are a sequel to Final Fantasy.

    Each instalment is it's own game.

    Funny, because by numbering them II, IV, VIII, etc, the developers themselves seem to be calling them sequels.

    Of course they are sequels FFS. Just because the stories are seperate, there is still the carrying over of game mechanics as well as the aformentioned numerical advancements.

    I can't agree more with this. Perhaps we should use the word "franchise" instead, just to avoid the pedantry. So "the thirteenth game in the Final Fantasy franchise wasn't very good"...

    Good point. I forgot there were non-numbered FF games. "The game in the franchise known as "Final Fantasy XIII" was a bit rubbish."

    I choose Halo 2 as well although not for the reasons you chose. No game could possibly have lived up to the amount of hype surrounding Halo 2 when it came out, and it didn't. The game was also very short from what I remember. During that final battle, I wasn't even looking at the screen near the end (it wasn't very interesting) when all of a sudden there was a bit of FMV then the end credits started. 'Huh what? That's it?!'.

    I was looking forward to playing that as well. What's wrong with it then?

    Auf Wiedersehen Monty wasn't a patch on Monty the Mole. Didn't stop me playing it loads though.

    Yeah, the hype was ridiculous, right down to the box art. I remember reading that it ended suddenly so wasn't surprised and it was very forgettable.

    Something I've never quite got is people going nuts over the E3 level. I thought it looked pretty shit and broken. The only thing that made it good was the crowd enthusiasm and boarding the ghost.

    I'm tempted to put Ghost Recon 2 on here but struggling to remember if I hated it that much, looking back, the slippery slope that lead to the crap we get now from Ubisoft. I do remember playing it quite a bit. I think the online set up and netcode was rather broken as were all Ubisoft titles.
  • Deleted user 21 September 2011 22:18:28
    If we're going that far back, then I much prefered Manic Miner to Jet Set Willy. The sequel seemd too unfocused and rambling, although I did enjoy playing it, just never got too far.

    O/T

    You know what they need to remake properly? Spy vs Spy.

    I understand there was a version on Xbox that I completely missed but that could be completely epic with massive online gaming these days.
  • Deleted user 21 September 2011 22:23:22
    Urban Strike was a pretty shit follow up top the awesome Jungle Strike.

    Who remembers the shit onfoot sections as well..................shudders

    Most of those I agree with, however the ones I have bolded show you might be slightly mental.

    TIP was a huge improvement over the first, adding more to what was already a great game.
    Disgaea 2 is amazing. I've easily sunk as many hours into it as the first, but then again I have the PSP version which adds a lot more than the original release.
    Worms Armageddon was also great. Sure, it was Worms 2.5 but still fantastic.

    If you can read this, you don't need glasses.

    I find it hard to choose Halo 2 because the MP was so awesome. Played the crap out of it! The campaign was definitely a letdown, though.

    Fable 3 was my most disappointing sequel. Loved Fable 2 and 3 seemed to take a few steps backward, amazingly. I still enjoyed it, mind, but not nearly as much.

    Loved halo mutiplayer offline, but why of why does everyone seem to forget that we had to wait about 2-3 months(could be less but can't be bothered to look it up, certainly was longer then 2-3 weeks) for patches that made you able to choose your gamemodes!!(before that it was near impossible to chose Slayer if you weren't in a custom game lobby, everything else was randomized and in fact i thought the lobby system was fucked) Everyone seems to ignore these facts up till this point.

    Mortal Kombat 3 was a huge disappointment for me. Some fairly awful new characters, old favourites either missing or turned into fucking robots, a run button & button mash combos. Hated it.

    Silent Hill 4 was a fairly average game that clearly had the Silent Hill name tacked on to try & get some sales. Huge disappointment after the previous games.

    Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness was a borderline unplayable mess of a game. They'd dropped in quality after the 2nd game, but this was just complete dogshit.

    Shadowman 2

    Totally lost focus. Mind you, the 1st wasn't all that great but I did expect more from the sequel.

    Thief 4

    Haven't played it yet. But what a disappointment.
