Games where the sequel surpasses the original...
... but also some where further sequels do not.
I was playing Speedball 2
at a friend's earlier today, and it got me thinking about what other games there are with a sequel that surpasses the original.
The obvious example (other than Speedball 1/2) that sprang to mind for me was Bubble Bobble
, which imo manages to be beaten by Rainbow Islands
on sheer fun-factor, even though the latter lacks the simultaneous multiplayer mode.
Sadly, Parasol Stars
, although a good game in it's own right, i do feel is inferior to both of its predecessors, and so i have decided to throw that in as an extra topic of discussion
Anyone else know of any contenders for either of these categories? Amiga games preferred, although not a mandatory requirement of the thread
