Biggest jump in quality from first game in series to the second?

For me, Killzone 1 was a pretty weak shooter, but K2 just blew my mind with how polished and impressive it was.

Uncharted 1 to 2 was also a big jump.

I'm not dumb. I just have a command of thoroughly useless information.

I agree with both of those.
IŽll also add Assassins Creed to the list. The second game was so much more polished than the first.

FFXIII to FFXIII-2

So much better, it's unbelievable.

Honorable mention: ME1 to ME2.

WRPGs and JRPGs were never genres until Demon's Souls came out. Stop using the terms incorrectly.

That seems to be a trend this generation. The first game always seems to be lacking something, and the second game fixes that completely.

Assassin's Creed 1 to 2. 2 is still so awesome it's still the best in the franchise.

Witcher 1-2 springs to mind, and now with 2-3 is looking like a next leap forward too. That series is improving so much with each installment.

I actually wasn't all that impressed with TW2.

Combat is not nearly as good as people say it is.

It was weird in the first one, but just sloppy in the second.

Really?
imagine how the quality of a PS2 game(Killzone) can't compare to a PS3 game(KZ2)... The hardware difference makes the jump in quality only natural.

There are ONLY two possible and viable answers for this question, period.

Skate to Skate 2. I have NEVER seen so many additions to a game in my life, EVER. The ONLY thing they didn't add was my beloved darkslide, but they added that in Skate 3. Massive improvements in camera placement/control, new moves, park design, etc.

Star Control to Star Control II. They took a decent space battle game and made a giant, sweeping, adventure-like driven story with even more ships/races and TONS to do in the sequel.
