    Bioshock 2 may not be like the first one but it's an awesome game and a good sequel

    CRYSIS 2??? Wrong!!

    On the other hand, I've only played SP so the MP could be terrible.

    Crysis 2 was a terrible sequel but standalone it was alright.


    crysis 1 takes a crap all over it though, Singleplayer and multiplayer wise.

    In the words of Tong from Deus Ex HR, "You've got it backwards boy!"

    Deus Ex: HR was one of the best games released this gen. However, the AI is quite appalling, but that doesn't take out much from the overall experience.

    The author of this list plays it pretty fast and loose with the terms 'Best' and 'Worst'. What they really seem to mean is "Games sequels that were better or worse than the preceeding title." Otherwise, surely they can't justify having Crysis 2 or Bioshock 2 in the 'Worst' category.

    Sure, both Bioshock and Crysis were better games in comparison, but neither of their sequels were by any means 'bad' games.

    Resident Evil 6 is not on the 'worst' list, so basically the list is a joke.

    Also, Red Dead: Redemption is not a sequel, it's a spiritual successor. It is not a continuation of the story, nor is it based in the same universe. The only thing similar is the setting, and the theme of revenge. To call it a sequel would be to call Heavy Rain a sequel to Indigo Prophesy, or Marvel: Ultimate Alliance a sequel to X-Men: Legends.

    Dead Space 2 should also be on the 'worst' list.

    Dawn of War 2 was a fantastic sequel. So was Far Cry 3.

    Wouldn't say BioShock 2 is one of the worst sequels, but I guess it works from a "compared to the previous game" standpoint.
    In that case I'd say Mass Effect 2 is one of the worst sequels, removed almost every single option for customization and the game's plot barely advances the overall story.
    And even though it's not a direct sequel or on the list, to me Dark Souls is so much inferior than Demon's Souls.

    I can't believe Final Fantasy XIII-2 isn't on the list, it's a fantastic sequel in my opinion, it fixed most mistakes made with XIII yet people still complained.

    Dragon Age 2 was definitely a terrible sequel. Borderlands was a pretty good sequel and Assassin's Creed 2 is definitely the best of what I have played. Fairly good list this time lol.

    I would have liked to have seen Infamous 2 on the "Best" section. I think it flowed from the original into the sequel well and gave us a new setting that was different from the cirst in regards of how everything was affected.

    I agree with this, I actually quite enjoyed Fable 2, F3 sucked big time & yes why wasn't DXHR in the best list or RDR which is technically a sequel from Red Dead Revolver

    Anyone who became a FF fan around VII will never be happy with the new shit they bring out. I liked FFXIII-2 but I loved FFVII.
