4 Great Games That Were Not So Great Sequels

Should we judge a sequel differently than a new game? In the case of these offerings: yes. (Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Dead Space 2, PC, PS3, Resident Evil 4, Silent Hill 4: The Room, Xbox 360)

Nice. More or less agree with the general point, and the choices. Was more tired of Assassin's Creed in Revelations and AC3 than in Brotherhood though. Plus, it introduced the great online mode.

IMO Brotherhood is where the AC series peaked.

Yeah i also saw brotherhood as the peak of the Assassins creed games. I didnt enjoy Revelations as much and its put me off of buying AC3 until i can find a copy in a bargain bin. I kind of wish they would put more time between games, In the old days sequels were timed better now they are just pumped out. But thats only my opion

i disagree with resident evil 4 and assassians creed brotherhood both were great games, now assassians creed revelations, yeah that was boring.

The author isn't saying the games are bad. He actually says they are good. They just aren't as good as the previous games.
RE4 is one of my favourite games but it really isn't a RE game.

But as game development goes up, we'll definitely see more sequels.

Wow so Dead Space 2 and Resident Evil 4 was "not scary"? I Guess I have a low tolerance for fear cause those games scared the pants off of me.
Conzul  +   815d ago
Yeah, dead space is full of good startles.
Canary  +   815d ago
I'm not really a horror fan, but I think the general sentiment is that startles are "cheap" scares, and that horror fans prefer the horror element to be conveyed through atmosphere and ambiance instead of monster jumping out at you from behind boxes and whatnot.

I suppose it's similar to the idea at the heart of all decent horror movies--monsters are scarier when you CAN'T see them.

I didn't find dead space 1 scary in the least. Re4 wasn't even supposed to scare(well..the regenerator...) and Dead space 2 I never played.

I found dead space 1's "Scares" to be predictable and I think the back round noise ruined it. Would be better to hear Raw Monster sound effects than some shittey little 'shock' music that goes over everything whenever there's supposed to be a scare

I only got scared twice in RE4. When I first heard the sound of the chainsaw in the beginning of the game and when the Regenerador popped up out of nowhere. Damn near gave me a heart attack lol.

RE3 is still the scariest of all the numbered games IMO. Had nightmares of Nemesis as a kid.

Whats crazy is that in some cases, if you chose not to face him and go to another room, he would follow you!

RE1 and 3 scared the crap out of me as a kid.

What got me most on the first one, was the part where you came across the first cut scene of the zombie eating the guy then all of the sudden looked at you with that creepy ass rotted face lol.

Horror games were the best back then. Now they're mostly "meh".

Silent Hill 4 was my personal favorite Silent Hill, it scared me half to death, but I agree with Dead Space 2 and RE 4 not being scary, and I get scared by everything.

Brotherhood was the best AC yet. Revelations was the biggest disappointment. That was a total mess of a game.
