Series that had HUGE leaps in sequels

I also thought AC3-4 was a huge improvement. Saints Row 2 was an amazing jump from Saints Row 1.

Gears 3's multiplayer was leagues better than the previous games. Mainly due to the networking seeing a huge improvement in polish (until the Mexicans came and destroyed it a year after launch), it's one of the most polished online experiences you could have when it works right. Gears 1 and 2 both hardly ever worked right, even on LAN.

Assassin's Creed 4 is not an AC title, 3 was horrible but 4 is a Pirate game they tacked on the AC label to sell more copies and ultimately made the game much worse than it'd have been as a standalone Pirate title.

ME2 is the best sequel in existence.

Playing through Assassins Creed 4 BF, it's barely within my grasp of human understanding how this game was made after the debacle that was 3.

Likewise Dead Rising 3 is far ahead of the others in terms of presentation and game design I feel similarly.


Ac3 was much better simply for the fact that it didn't have all the most crap. If I wanted a pirates game I'd buy a freaking pirates game. I want AC. I want scaling walls, assassinating Templars in awesome ways, ancient alien theories, the works. The parts of ac4 that were on land, I liked. Hated the boat. Hated.


AC3 was better? I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

AC3 almost killed the franchise as a whole for me.


I hated the ending and the voice acting was weak but gameplay wise? Much better. Like I said, hardly any boats.


Brotherhood killed it for me. That ending was the stupidest thing i ever saw. It was then i realized ubisoft was gonna milk the hell out of Assasins creed every year after that so i stopped wasting money on them. I actually really enjoyed ac2 and brotherhood. The first one was a chore to play through.

Assassin's Creed 1 to 2 and Uncharted 1 to 2 come to mind.

AC2 and Uncharted 2 were two of the most improved sequels that I have ever played.

I think Mortal Kombat 1 to Mortal Kombat 2 is another great example. MK2 was what everyone loved about MK1 but with triple the content.
