5 sequels that should never have been made

PS3 Attitude: "Introducing a new weekly feature, in which PS3 Attitude takes an irreverent* look at the world of gaming. Today we’re discussing five sequels that, if we had our way, would never have seen the light of day; although, in a way we’re glad they did, because otherwise we wouldn’t have been able to write this article.

*At least 37% of the following is probably incorrect." (Call of Juarez: The Cartel, Duke Nukem Forever, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, PC, PS3, Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One, Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, Xbox 360)

Dragon Age 2 should be on the list

I would give you 10 speech bubbles for that comment if I had the power lol. DA2 is just horrible lol.

If it's a role playing game that needs to be on the list my vote is for Final Fantasy X-2. It was like a Japanese Charlie's Angels.

Why the hell should DA2 be on the list. The first one was a blast, the second one wasn't as good as the first but could still hold it's own. I didn't think DA2 was great by any stretch of the imagination, but I had fun with it, and the majority of reviewers agreed. If DA2 was released on it's own without the first to compare it too, no one would have said boo about it because as a stand alone rpg, it wasn't bad. It's only crime was it wasn't as good as the original. I've seen plenty of rpg's come out worse than DA2 but none seem to merit the hate that DA2 receives.

DA 2 was a bit of a misstep compared to Origins, but there were some good things about it. The plot was more grounded and had applicability; not to mention it was a great cave simulator.

I LIKED All 4 One for what it was.

SAME HERE!! All 4 One was a great addition to the series, I don't see why these guys are hating on it. I'm a good ways through it now with a buddy of mine online, and it's loads of fun. The co-op "things" (dunno the correct word here), make it a lot of fun.

I think they are looking at this game like the other games, which is an incorrect way of looking at it. It's different, and if you play with a good friend whom also loves the series, it will be great. I haven't played by myself outside of the very first level, so I don't know of the AI problems.

I liked because it was free with my PS+ this month.

One opinion piece I actually agree with! Good on you!

Splinter Cell Conviction.

duke nukem was the worst!!!! And what with 10 years in development.. Pathetic game.
ps3rulz  +   1205d ago
I actually liked duke nukem forever. Sure it had a lot of flaws but i enjoyed it, am i the only one?? Lol

Ten years and half a dozen developers and you expected it to be great? It'd be different if only one team had worked on it for all that time, but...

This list should also have Lego Indiana Jones 2

Shocked assassin's creed revelations isn't on there. I played all the AC games, but I struggled to get through that one. Everything that was new (like bombs) just sucked, and the rest felt rehashed to the point of not caring.

Revelations was a far more interesting game than Brotherhood.
TheLyonKing  +   1205d ago
FF 13-2?
Kran  +   1205d ago
Some would say Kane and Lynch 2, but I actually liked it, minus the ending that just stops.

Though I know the game made people sick.... for 1 of 2 reasons. OR both.

1. FOV.
2. The scene where K&L were, like, cut up bad and naked. haha

Thief 3 belongs on here

While COJ: The Cartel was a terrible game, the COOP was some of the funnest and most innovative iv'e ever played. You are work together to achieve the same goals, but you all have you own motives, getting private missions to do in secret from your teammates, seeing all cut scenes and important game moment from different perspectives. If only they made the game itself better :(
