Syndicate - I'm not aware of any sequels to this? Loved this game, used to play it all the time.

Did Syndicate Wars come out?


Head Over Heels was well ripe for a sequel

This was a really hard question, As I browsed my game archive I found to my dismay that almost all had or were sequels but I did find one:

Konami's Superb Zombies Ate My Neighbours. Many a happy hour was spent blasting Zombies, Martians and Chucky dolls. Also the level titles were brilliant: Lumberjack Hedgemaze Mayhem anyone?

So how many of us have posted a game that didn't actually have some sort of sequel actually come out then?

Stunt Race FX. The greatest racer that pushed its host hardware to the limits thus resulting in a series of niggly performance issues that could have been amended with a sequel on a more powerful console. Ever.

Stick the original on DS for starters. I mean, c'mon, Nintendo!

Syndicate Wars did indeed come out for both the PC and PS1 and be warned the pc version is damned hard to get running on a XP pc as I've been trying for a while now.

Now best game that didn't get a sequel well I have a few that I couldn't choose from. First there's the Amiga PD game kung-fu charlies,a brilliant platformer that had you trying to clear the screen of all the enemies. The sound effects were so damn funny. Then there was Universe by core,a game that's disliked by alot of people but I loved it. Bloodnet by Microprose/Game-Tek could have done with a seuqel as there was so many things that could have been done with it. And then Beneath A Steel Sky by Revolution,a sequel was talked about a while back but nothing came of it.
Ooh ooh ohh and a sequel to Discworld Noir, sure the engine was flawed and the pc version was ultra buggy but it had a decent plot and a new character that fit in so well with the Discworld universe.

The sequel to Chase was SCI..

And I reckon it's correct that Ghoul Patrol was the sort of sequel to Zombies...

But whoever said Head over Heels needs a sequel is CORRECT!!

YES PLEASE

Still can't get into this game. I always like games that make you (well, you can skip it which is also good) play through the introduction but once the actual game started I couldn't get into it. I find it hard to follow what's going on in each screen.
