While most video game sequels try to improve over their predecessors, some just are not able to live up to the expectations set by the games that came before. So here are the top 10 most disappointing video game sequels of all time. Also, this is Part 2 of a five part article, and you can check out Part 1 here.
Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
This game suffered from the same issues as did Call of Duty: Infinite. Frequent sequels, with increasing focus on futuristic warfare lead to a game that simply did not resonate with the audience.
Stealth games are often a slow and calculated affair. However, when littered with loading screens and backtracking it can become outright tedious. And that’s Thief for you.
While the campaign was actually not half bad, the multiplayer felt like an after-thought. And that’s not something you want to hear about a Battlefield game.
Resident Evil 6
Taking all the wrong inspirations from modern third person shooters, Resident Evil 6 became a generic game.
Call Of Duty: Ghosts
No amount of dogs dying can get an emotional response from gamers when the game feels this dull.
Gears Of War: Judgement
I actually did like what I played of Gears of War: Judgement. However, it never reached the highs of the original trilogy.
Far Cry: Primal
While Primal got better over time, with patches that added the survival mode, it was initially a pretty lean game due to the lack of weapon variety, and bland mission structure.
Mafia III was a massive disappointment, specially given how amazing the quality of the narrative was and how bad the actual gameplay felt. So while, one would want to be persistent and play through the game and see the story, the act of actually playing it was absolutely tiresome.
God Of War: Ascension
Another game that was put out as an afterthought, while the studio worked on the game it actually wanted to make.
Final Fantasy XIII
When a game takes 25 hours to actually get to the good part, there’s something really wrong with the design!
