A couple of other games I remember that had pretty bad/terrible sequels I've just remembered are Sparkster (the sequel to the awesome Rocket Knight Adventures) and Final Fight 2&3 on the SNES (which were laughably bad but pricey on ebay 'cos of their OMG teh R@REness)

Hmmmm that's a point, and I thought about starting a thread but it would be too lame (plus it's probably been done). So here are some sequels that I think were better:

Sonic 2
Zelda 2
Street Fighter Alpha 2
House of The Dead 2
Time Crisis 2
Ghouls N' Ghosts
DoDonPachi
Virtua Fighter 2
Alien Breed 2
Creatures 2
Streets Of Rage 2
World Of Illusion
Night Warriors : Darkstalkers Revenge
Gunbrid 2
Super Smash Bros. Melee
F-Zero X
Doom 2
Mega Man 2
Zool 2
Street Fighter 2!
Splatter House 2
Rolling Thunder 2

I thought I was the only person who thought that.

I was really annoyed when I got a nice new TV and the status bar at the bottom (the score and time remaining etc.) was off the bottom of the screen. They used a bit too much of the overscan :(

I suspect Speedball 2 is better, but I'm more fond of Speedball 1 as well.

I have to say I preferred Speedball 2 but they were both fantastic.

Personally, I thought Speedball 2 was much more polished and played better than SB1.
