Retrospective Reviews is a new regular series at PopGeeks that looks back at great games that you may have missed when they first released. The idea is to introduce you to the titles in an honest and frank way with the hope that you go back and play them if they sound appealing to you. We’ll be looking at a vast variety of genres over the coming months so there should be something for everyone.
Sequels are an integral part of the gaming industry. Just like with other entertainment mediums, successful titles are seen as perfect examples for further exploiting. It makes sense, as fans who have already enjoyed a particular game are likely to want to purchase further entries in the series. This makes sequels a sound investment for publishers and developers who might not want to risk creating a brand new intellectual property when they know they can make a profit with another instalment.
