* ''VideoGame/ZoneOfTheEnders'' sold well [[JustHereForGodzilla mostly because]] it came with a demo for ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2''. The game itself was decent enough but suffered from repetitive battles, criminal shortness and [[{{Wangst}} whiny]] and cliched characters, leading to a somewhat mixed reaction. As such, many people who liked the original concept were happy to see the sequel tighten up the controls, give you twice as many options in battle and include a long and interesting plot to follow. They were even more surprised to see whiny and annoying characters in the first game return in style, having [[TookALevelInBadass leveled in Bad Ass]] in the intervening time between games.

* Even though it's not technically an Avengers movie, a lot of critics maintain that ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'' is the sequel to ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' that ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'' should have been.

* ''ComicBook/GodzillaKingdomofMonsters'' was criticized during its publication for its [[DecompressedComic slow pacing]], unpleasant artwork, overly cynical tone, lack of focus or momentum, shallow and mean-spirited social commentary, and excessive pop culture references that became dated within months. Its sequels, ''ComicBook/GodzillaOngoing'' and ''ComicBook/GodzillaRulersOfEarth'' surprised fans by fixing pretty much all the problems present in the first series, and most readers now skip ''Kingdom'' entirely due to how little it contributes to the overall storyline.

* ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'' was highly received, but the series height came in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' with improvements to combat and reductions in [[LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading elevator trips]], while building on the successes of the story and character from the first game.

* The original ''VideoGame/{{Karateka}}'' is well-known for its use of {{Rotoscoping}} to achieve impressive sprite animations for its time, but [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny is a pretty dull and archaic fighting game by today's standards]]. The remake overhauls the core mechanics, maintaining the feel of storming through the BigBad's island fortress to fight off a few dozen foes while turning it into a fun game with emphasis on timing and discipline with incentive to replay it for the [[GoldenEnding best ending possible]].
