View Full Version : Underrated games that deserve sequels? (ie. The Darkness)

This has undoubtedly been talked about before, but in the off chace that it hasn't been, here goes.

Everyone here is obviously a K & L fan, and you all know it's very underrated game. So I'd like to bring up other games that are underrated that haven't had the good fortune of getting a sequel.

To get the ball rolling, I'll list a couple of games I've played that I consider underrated and that I believe deserve sequels. Also if you want, you can post a short summary of the sequel's plot, and improvements you think should be implemented. This isn't limited to games available on the latest generation of consoles by the way.

Since I don't know if anyone will care that much about this thread I'll list one for now, if this thread can gain a little more popularity I'll list another.

"The Darkness"-Developed by Starbreeze Studios and Published by 2K.

With this game you either loved it or hated it. It came out in 06 I believe, 4 years ago. It was the first game I ever purchased for my PlayStation 3. It was a video game adaptation of a comic book series (and on that note, I think more games should be adapted from comics/books, etc) but it wasn't a Marvel/Superhero/Stan Lee comic. I'm not that into comics but I believe it was a erm... "under the radar" sort of comic? Kind of like Kickass or Watchmen, just not as popular.
The games plot revolved around a hitman for the mob in New York city named Jackie Estacado. The game begins on Jackie's 21rst birthday in the middle of a hit on a foreman at a construction site in New York City. Fast Forward a little bit and Jackie winds up getting betrayed by his Uncle, the psychotic Don, and almost get's whacked. Throughout this crisis Jackie has been hearing voices in his head from an unknown presence. It is at the point where he is almost killed that the presence reveals itself, The Darkness, a demonic force that lives inside Jackie's body, when the force awakens inside Jackie he gains Demonic and terrible powers, which he uses to vicously murder his attackers.
The rest of the game consists of Jackie using his new found power to get back at the Don and keeping his friends and family safe, all the while trying to figure out what has happened to him.
In all seriousness, this backstory puts any other Super powered protagonist's backstory to absolute shame.
The game plays like a first person shooter, Jackie is able to use guns he picks up on his journey or from his victims, but he is also able to use the powers gained by the Darkness, like a long demon like tentacle he can use ti impale his enemy's or pick up cars (Sadly no Helicopters :() but that's not all. I won't spoil the other ones but they are very unique and you can have a lot of fun with them when deciding how to defeat your enemies.
The game has a strong story, great voice acting, chilling soundtrack gritty yet realistic environments, fun side quests, a lot of guns, and for the time very nice graphics. The game's major flaws were it's A.I. and some of the sholting mechanics. Oh and some people complained that the story wasn't good which is a lie. But in their defense, the ending of the game is pretty, pretty damn lame.
The game had a multiplayer mode that failed miserably, environments were lame and it had almost no connectivity with the things featured in the game, and finding a game with even half a full amount of players was considered a myth.
But this game will stay with you if your like me, you'll want to replay it a bunch of times and replay different chapters to play through your favorite moments, even getting the achievements is really fun. Find a copy of this game and play it! Rent it, buy it, whatever, it's awesome. It's for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, I don't know about the PC. A Demo exists on the PSN which I guess should mean one exists on XB Live.

Improvements, Sequel summary, etc.

The game needs an overhall with it's A.I., the men would often stand around an do nothing while you massaced them, or when you used some of their powers they were oblivious until their final moments.

Other than the ending, the game's main problem with the plot was it's inability to touch upon things, seriously, this guy basically has the devil living inside of him, but he never tells anybody about it, ANYBODY. The only people who ever do know are really your enemies who never last long to tell the tale, or ONE select good guy who I won't spoil, but basically, he never tells anybody and he only questions anything related to The Darkness about 3 times in the game. I'm not saying the protaganist is stupid, it's just that there are some things you think he would mention like "Oh yeah guys BTW, I have Demon powers that's how I survived that..." Basically the games need to add more depth when explaining things, there's enough depth in the initial story, it's just the other stuff. This is rarely a problem with the game but I mention it only to be honest.

The last improvement really is that of almost every other sequel today, better multiplayer, more guns, more powers, better graphics, etc.

Sequel Summary (Contains SPOILERS):
Since the ending of the game is still confusing to me and I never read the comics, I'd say the sequel would either revolve around Jackie not actually being "taken over" by The Darkness, or breaking free of it's control, he regains control OVER The Darkness and uses his powers to either Find a way to bring Jenny back to life or save her from hell (there's a nod to this toward the fourth act of the original game) and by doing so fighting more minions of The Darkness while also engaging in the aftermath of the Mob Massacre from the original game's ending OR the game would follow a completely new character not related to Jackie (Jackie had no sons and his only chance was with Jenny who died so his bloodline ended therefore no relatives of Jackie would live, and live with the Darkness) who has now been cursed with The Darkness either being the first in the line or like Jackie inheriting it from his Father thus creating a totally unrelated story to the original but still featuring The Darkness. I'd much rather have a continuation of the first game.

Well I don't expect you to write that much but if so go right ahead. This game does have a "planned" sequel, but other than that there's no new information and apparently Top Cow won't be developing it.

Yes you can post a game that has a "planned" sequel, because that doesn't exactly mean it will happen.

And please do not troll this thread for being so unrelated to K & L. That's why it's off-topic. I'd love to make a thread related to K & L, but seriously, I think just about EVERYTHING has been covered by now.

Edit: Don't worry everyone I have fixed the crisis! The correct developer is now properly listed.

I'd say Beyond Good and Evil desperately needs a sequel, but I think one's being made.

So, I think there should be a sequel to Psychonauts, since the ending of the game totally set up for one ("The leader of the Psychonauts has been kidnapped! Are you a bad enough dude to save him?").

The plot was about this camp set up to train kids into becoming psychic soldiers. A circus runaway named Rasputin (Raz) crashes the place and gets sucked into a conspiracy involving a mad scientist who makes people sneeze their brains out, an insane asylum, and a giant, mutated lungfish.

I think there should be way more brains to explore, like go around, put the door on random people's heads, and maybe unlock a bonus level. Psychonauts was a genius game and absolutely hilarious, so I don't have much to add on...except that there shouldn't be another Meat Circus (insanely hard level at the end of the game way worse than anything else). Also, make the final boss actually difficult this time.

Keep the NPC conversations up, I liked how if you explored you could overhear all these weird, creepy, surreal things that reveal dark secrets of the other campers (the blue kid with the tinfoil hat talking about how the squirrels tried to get him to kill people, the two insanely happy, peppy campers sitting on a roof and talking calmly about maybe committing suicide or killing a ton of people, the Russian kid acting as hired muscle for the short, wimpy kid who basically became a Mafia don, etc.) Keep all the dark crap, and make sure that there are more levels like The Milkman Conspiracy, which was honestly one of the funniest things I've ever seen/played.

Watch the first part right now. Seriously. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OF7aIWxfgnA

I'll do that, thanks for your input the game sounds sickly hilarious, which is something I appreciate.

Edit: It's a little long so It'll take me a bit to respond with what I think of it. In the meantime check out this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DiRBpZi_nhs it's the opening cutscene to The Darkness, it's truly intense.

The Club. This game had absolutely no plot but it's still one of the most intense games I've ever played. The gameplay is perfect, all that needs to happen is a good story mode and maybe a level creator and the sequel would be everything the original wasn't. Also, it had some pretty awesome box art.

It was universally praised by critics, but didn't sell well at all. I'm one of the few people who bought it. It was an absolutely great game, but just didn't get enough attention.

It's a Tim Schafer game, so of course it was awesome.

Driv3r did get a sequel , Parallel Lines , this one was underrated , very underrated ...
Nevertheless it did got a semi sequel on the PSP , Driver 76 ...
And now a new Driver is being made by Ubisoft , and the plot seems to follow Driv3r's Marvelous Ending (seriously though , if Drvi3r had a good thing about it , it was the ending , it's unforgettable) ...

So Driver is off topic ... which is a good thing , i suppose ...



Back on topic ...

The Saboteur ...

It only came out a few months ago , but Pandemic Studios has been shut down even before the game came out , the chance of seeing a continuation to this game is going to be pretty thin ...
What's stupid was that The Saboteur was a hell of a better game than Lord of The Rings Conquest and a lot less glitchy than World in Flames , but apparently it didn't sufficed for EA ... goddamn it ...

Played through to look through NPC conversations again. This game is darker than I remembered. Let's go through a huge summary:

Campers:
The two really happy campers (Clem and Crystal)were planning a duel ritualistic suicide, while the wimpy kid (Maloof) made a deal with the Russian kid (Mikhail) to keep him from being bullied. He wires Coach Oleander's car to explode and has Mikhail beat a bully half to death. Milka learned how to turn invisible since her mother hated to look at her.

Coaches:
Coach Oleander liked to raise rabbits as a kid, but his butcher father figured that rabbits were only good as meat and butchered them in front of him. Ford had his mind shattered in a psychic battle, and is only sane when near huge amounts of psitanium. Milla worked at an orphanage as sort of a surrogate mother to the kids, but the orphanage burned down one day (she eventually coped with the loss and is very protective of the campers). Sasha's mother died when he was a baby, and he read his father's mind to learn about her only to be rather traumatized when he came across some of the...less clean thoughts.

Asylum Characters:
Boyd was a security guard who was fired, went insane, and burned down his place of employment with molotov cocktails. Gloria struggled to become a great actress like her abusive mother, trying to become great under very cruel teachers. When she did become a great actress, her mother killed herself due to Gloria becoming more important than her, causing her to go insane.

God damn this game was dark. It's amazing, all the crap I didn't notice before.

You know it sold so well because of the story?! It's still being prased as one of the best told video games! What's Hazes story. OH YA! Drug-addled mercenaries wearing glowing power armor trudging through the jungle with guns that want to use the plants there for some sort of herowin drug to help the soldiers fight. Yup your right, thats a good story.

Edit: Although it did have a semi original story, it still was let down by having zero memorable characters.

The voice acting was very good and the facial animation too , i'll give you that much ...

You also seem to miss the point of Haze , it wasn't about Soldiers grabbing flowers to make them go nuts , that was a subplot acting as a common critique that we would have about some rage-infused soldiers that still thinks that war is cool , which is why they all have a severe breakdown at the first sight of blood , but anywya , Haze was about the fact that in present time , 'war' and 'conflitcs' are just two factions fighting each other all wanting the same power , each of them would then justify it as wanting to bring 'peace' and 'save' the people , in the end , as a simple soldier , you can only be on one of the two sides with none of them being actually better than the other ...
While indeed this plot point could have been done a bit better , i believe coming from Free Radicals , who mostly did these humoristic TimeSplitters , it was a nice welcoming dramatic change , and sure as hell made a lot more sense than a shotgun wielding scientist ... you seriously expect me to take Gordon Freeman seriously ? hell , in my opinion , he's actually laughing at all the freedom fighters and abusing his symbol of power ... which could make the story a bit better , but since this was never hinted , the story of Half Life 2 remains a simple justification to shoot down helicopters , zombies , drive a car for no reason , and spot a briefcase wielding crow-like person every now and then , and yet they had to put in all these bright 'philosophical' ideas (like Bioshock) to pretend that it can make things look Smarter ...

i think the forum agreement is that HAZE wasn't that bad. I for one loved the 4 player coop and vehicle segments. the multiplayer was what makes me love it so much though. Example: reble team imprissoned in camp with mantel team watching them. in camp, mantel cant shoot rebels. rebels are handcuffed. rebels can kick mantel. when they leave the base, a siren goes off. if a rebel escapes and calls in a helicopter, he gets all his guns and is sent to save the other rebels. that is a brilliant multiplayer game. 1/12

The canyon part was tough, but I like my games tough. It wasn't as bad as that Longo Two Guns level though. That thing was hard yet all kinds of fun.
Believe it or not, I only beat that game last year, I left it a good few years and went back to it. Marathoned it in a day, I was happy. I know there were level cheat codes, so maybe that's why you remember beating it.

I only want a Battlefront 3 if it is more along the lines of the first one though.

Bevacur
5th Jul 2010, 00:27
Exactly. They nailed the atmosphere great in the first game, loved the ghost ship level.
I wish and hope they make the sequel for mature gamers. Not exactly a 18+ but maybe go for a 15+. Blood and swearing in a Star Wars game was unbelieveable.

I think the devs were going for a darker story in the first game.

GrievousOdyssey

Cheat codes ? Me ? Never ...
I must have had a blackout when i passed the canyons then ...
Hell , completing the Prison part was already a achievement for me ...
By the way did you found lots of bounty though ? ...

Republic Commando was the last game i bought for my PC , i'm so glad i finished my PC gaming with that , it was epic , it takes place in a universe we all know but under a new perspective , it's so dumb and cheesy one's got to wonder how come they never thought about this before ? ...

There wasn't even a single piece of soundtrack from John Williams , all were original scores (trivia : same composer who did Bounty Hunter's theme and The Force Unleashed) ...

Of course i'll go bat**** crazy by thinking of the ending again ...

Don't worry about it , happens to me all the time , this is especially true with Grand Theft Auto titles , the missions that get past on my first playthrough easily , i have to replay it twelve times before beating it on my second playthrough , and vice versa ...

5th Jul 2010, 01:08
Redemption is in no way a bad game. But it is a let-down. In two ways...

1.) It isn't a sequel to Revolver. It isn't as funny or cool, or as stylized. It's not as memorable either.

2.) It isn't better than Grand Theft Auto IV, a game that it borrows heavily from. It isn't as revolutionary to games, the story is not near as good, and it's just all around not as big or epic as GTA IV.

And another thing. I'm sick of people praising it like it's the best and only western game ever made. I even once saw a video review where the reviewer said "forget games like Gun or Red Dead Revolver ever happend..." My jaw literally dropped.

Edit: Maybe it's just because I prefer The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly over The Searchers any day.

Brackstone17

I disagree completely. I think the story, while not the most original, was very well done. I didn't see that many cliches. It is one of the few games that actual has a character arc, and that is something I think is very important.

Not enough games have Dinosaurs.

My favorite thing about the game though was it's multiplayer. Which is strange because I ususally prefer a game's campaign mode. But Turok's multiplayer...

It was truly something else. I've never had more fun with multiplayer than I did with Turok.

There isn't another game I know of where just getting across the map meant crossing through velociraptor infested pathways, or where you can make the ultimate most that guy kill in a video game, following an enemy player whose captured the flag and is bringing it back to the base, equipping your knife to make you run faster and then attack the player, activating a swift and brutal execution mini-cutscene, where you shove your blade through his skull.

Epic.

Evil Twin: Cyprien's Chronicles. This dark little platformer had a sweet McGee's Alice feel to it. Unfortunately it was plagued by abysmal camera controls and poor voice acting, soundtrack was awesome though. A remake or a sequel with improvements would be nice.

ShadowMan deserves a reboot but not a sequel because ShadowMan 2: Second Coming sucked balls.

The original Red Dead Revolver deserves a DIRECT/FAITHFUL sequel not the spiritual successor that is Red Dead Redemption.

I want more SPAGHETTI

Rising Sun and European Assault ...

These two console Medal of Honor games weren't exactly underrated since , well , they weren't so good to begin with ...

But nevertheless they had potential , lots of it , and i'm sure with today's technology they can evolve into something flawless and great ...
Then again that new Medal of Honor game was rated as still being a glitchy and unsatisfying experience despite having shiny graphics ... oh well ...

European Assault had this idea of giving optional mission objectives , so you can operate as you wish on a given map ...
It's kind of like how some of us envisioned the level design for Kane & Lynch III , well European Assault showed that the thing Can Work and be fun as well ... just needs polish ... ... ... then again we better not count on it with IO ... oh well ...

And as for Rising Sun ... i think this game actually influenced Bioshock a bit ...
No really , play the first level , as well as watching the intro cinematic for the second level ...
I mean it just freaked me out , walking down the hallway with that old song echoing around ? ... Whoa ...

Apart from that small trivia , why does it deserve a sequel ? well because the vision the developers had for this game was really ahead of its time ! ...
While the gameplay was quite 'meh' , it is in the scripted sequences that you see some genius in it , fact it could have also influenced the recent Call of Duties with these scripted and sudden cinematic moments , i have no doubt about it ...
It's also when you unlock the storyboard videos that you get to see what did the developers wanted each level to look like in the begining , and then see how much it had changed in the final product ... sometimes they just altered a couple of sequences , others , well , you can easily guess that what they wanted to achieve just wasn't possible with the technical limitaion imposed to them at that time ... Dynamic lightning , motion captured acting and so forth ...

Not to mention that Rising Sun Was suppose to have a sequel (the game purposely ended on a cliffhanger note , leaving a full year before the capitulation of Japan , alot of things could have happened , not to mention two mighty bombs) , but due to the poor receptions they just pulled the plug ... and now that they've decided to tackle into the Afghan Days , chances of returning to the empire of the sun and finish the fight is almost nonexistant ...

Rising Sun is going to be left in history as one of the least exciting Medal of Honor games to play , but i think it should also be remembered for the ideas it had , not to mention the great bonus features and replay values it demanded ... ... ... i mean some Danish folks might want to take notes , we do like watching storyboard videos and replaying levels in order to unlock previously locked rooms , don't we ? ...

Also note that both games were THX certified games , how come they don't make these no more ? ...
Weird considering how with the improvement of sound quality with this generation's consoles it should have meant Much More of these THX certified games ...

Anywya , as a side note , the 2008 Prince of Persia game ...
Where's the sequel to this beautiful game Ubisoft ? ...
Why are you shoving up Tom Clancy Hawk fighter games ? why are you milking the Assassin's Creed franchise ? why do you pretend you're making a sequel to Beyond Good and Evil ? why don't you just give us another Prince of Persia already instead of giving us that lackluster Forgotten Sands and remastering the Sands of Time trilogy for no reason ? ... or is there a reason for this move ? ...

Rising Sun and European Assault ...

Jesus chritst and i've forgotten to make even the slightest mention to Christopher Lennertz's soundtrack , it was grand , just grand for mere video games ...
Hope the guy gets Michael Giacchino's popularity , eventually ...

In fact i've noticed that the overall quality of current generation's video game soundtracks is surprisingly lower than that of the previous generations ...
You would think now that every game runs in 5.1 surround sound , gets a live orchestra , with reknown film composer tackling the project , you would think that we would constantly have masterpieces !! ...

Nope we didn't ... ... ... i just can't explain it , even God of War III for some reason failed to offer a overall soundtrack as marvelous as the previous ones , no wonder half of the soundtrack came from the old games , and they thought we wouldn't have noticed ... the Shame ...

Yesterday they released the trophy list for the Remastered Trilogy ...

Some of them aren't exactly piss-poor-easy trophies , so if the game actually 'looks better' than back on the PS2 and if they also improved on the sound mixing , then i Might just buy it ...

...
...

Hey , there are worse addictions in this world than being a mere civilised trophy addict ...

The Forgotten Sands a cash-in game ? YOU LIE ! ...

I had that game on my watchlist , the Limited Edition comes with Prince of Persia Classic yo ! ...
