Making a sequel is arguably much harder than making the first game.

Not only do you have to come up with ideas to advance the established formula, you also have to stay true to the original release and not jump the shark (we're looking at you, Saints Row).

Although there are plenty of gaming sequels that fans have hailed as all-time classics, there are also times when it goes completely south.

The more a sequel tries to differentiate itself, the more it risks being completely rejected by its fanbase and ending up like any of the following games.

It's not just about how the game plays, though. There can be a whole host of other factors that determine how fans will react to a game. Even something as simple as a graphical change can inspire the fans to revolt. Wind Waker, anyone?

Chances are you've missed out on one of these rejected sequels, and that's a big shame, because they're all genuinely brilliant.
