Topic: Worst Gaming Sequel you ever played?

There aren't really any "offensive" sequels I've played that come to mind, but I can certainly say that Resident Evil 6 was a step down from RE5 which itself was a step down from RE4. Kinda lost interest a third into the campaign, I don't know about you but I also lost interest in the series as a whole knowing the direction they will go. Maybe if Capcpom would rerelease REmake or better yet do a REmake 2, I'd be back on board but it's good to want things.

Other sequels would have to be Yoshi's Island DS, what a letdown. Had some fun moments but it didn't measure up to the Brilliance of the original.

Fancy a Karrot Cake?

They could only follow that level of disappointment by releasing another dud: the very mediocre Paper Mario 3D, from what I understand.

As a huge fan of the first two Paper Mario games, the fact that I haven't even touched this modern sequel makes it a catastrophe.

Dead Space 2(kept me from trying 3), Uncharted 2(kept me from 3), Super Paper Mario, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Yoshi's Island DS, Final Fantasy XIII(didn't like any of the other ones, either), Resident Evil 6, Metroid Prime 2, Silent Hill 3.
That's all I can think of right now...

Final Fantasy 7.. sorry but I have a lot of hate for that game.. and possible Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance 2.. (I actually liked it.. but there was a couple of stages they really needed to cut down) and of course.. Champions of Norrath: Return to Arms.. the first was buggy but really.. what the Hell happened here??

I was personally offended and disgusted by Mario Party 9. It is essentially Wii Party but with a Mario-coated exterior. And Wii Party was a horrible game.

Also Paper Mario: Sticker Star disappointed me, greatly. It was quite the subpar game. I don't understand why Miyamoto had to dumb this one down and strip it of its unique characters and way of storytelling. Bad move.

Is there to was though when even at like of than with it?

Definately Metroid Other M for me.

Not just from a game perspective, but what it did to the franchise as a whole. THE most disappointing game I've ever purchased.

@Austroid If you don't take that game seriously, it's actually kinda fun/funny though.

What I see in this thread (for the most part) is luck. It's seems most of you haven't played a truly bad sequel. Just one you didn't like as much as the one before.
You know whats really craptacular? Wizards and Warriors 3 for the NES or Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time for the Wii or Resident Evil Gaiden for the GBC or Rampage: Total Destruction for the Wii. Don't even get me started with the other big console company's (present and past). uggghhhh I could go on forever.

I cant agree with that myself. It was of course, an improvement over the DS version in the main game - but so barely that it wasn't worth it. Not to mention I still go back to the DS version for the awesome minigames and the 2 player competitive levels, both of which were left out in the 3DS game. The multiplayer being present in every level in the 3DS version was alright, but it got dull very quickly (even without the fact that you cant go off screen from one another).
The coin mechanic didn't actually have any significant rewards, and just meant that the lives system is even more arbitrary than it has ever been. It was quite a disappointment imo. :/

You cant really put it completely down to luck seeing as many people actually research games significantly nowadays before buying in order to prevent these kinds of disappointments.

Dear Faint.. you clearly have not played Rampage World tour on GBC.. I forgot about it originally.. and you reminded me.. but yeah it was pretty crappy.. when you compare other versions of it.. or even the original to it..

If you bought that game looking for an RPG. no wonder you were disappointed.

As for the Worst Sequel I've played, it's probably a tie between Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World and Fire Emblem: Awakening (if it counts as a sequel). Dawn of the New World's combat was horribly broken. Emil was stiff, the controls were weird, and the hit detection sloppy, not to mention the game focused on training monsters instead of using traditional party members. I did enjoy the skits though. As for Fire Emblem, to prevent this comment from turning into a five page long essay, it was a heavily diluted, 'casualized' Fire Emblem game drowned in hype and will likely guide the rest of the series down that path. Honestly, I think Fire Emblem has become the first casualty of Nintendo's 'EA-fication'.

@SomeBitTripFan - I wouldn't say it's a casualty, so much as they stopped pretending it's a hardcore strategy series (It never was) and actually made it a game that more than just hardcore fans could enjoy.

Well I guess young is more apt than lucky. For half of my gaming life I had to rely on friends, rentals, and shifty box art.

Other M didn't damage the franchise. The fans have. Hopefully, it'll recover from that damage on the 3DS or Wii U, though I wouldn't be surprised if Metroid would skip this generation.

It used to be good now it has a broken balance and stupid DLC.

It had its own style. The Gamecube and Wii ones were quite good if you played them properly and accepted deaths as part of the game.

Peter Pepper's Ice Cream Factory is probably the worst sequel I have played. (Sequel to Burger Time) it is part of Data East Arcade Classics (Wii).

Paper Mario Sticker Star. That game was one huge disappointment.
