A few follow up games that deserve a little more love...
Whoa whoa whoa... Bioshock 2? Yes. Call of Juarez: Bound In Blood? Uh... ok Mafia II? Yes. Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sands? No. Absolutely not! It SUCKED! It had the worst story in the series, an incredibly short play-through time, and...just NO! 2008's Prince of Persia was fantastic! Sure, the gameplay got repetitive, but the story was amazing! I loved the connection between the Prince and Eleka! Also, they trashed Warrior Within. Need I remind you, CVG, that it won several GOTY awards? It was a completely different game than Sands of Time and I love it for that! It was darker and more fun! The Darkness 2? I haven't played it yet, but that demo was insulting to fans of the first game. My friend who is a huge Darkness fan (game and comics) said it's actually pretty good though, so I'll try it.
I'd say its too early for Darkness 2, but a yes to Bioshock 2 and Mafia II. And yes, Warrior Within was good, much better than Forgotten Sands.
Sorry? "The shockingly poor Warrior Within"? That game was absolutely outstanding. The music was a little bit much but the game was brilliant. Bioshock 2 was just a bigger version of the first game with perhaps a weaker story, but I don't know how you could hate it if you loved the first one. Call of Juarez I can agree on. That game is a lot of fun and the setting and graphics are sweet.
