Someone else on this planet that thinks Warrior Within is superior to the original in all ways that count? There is hope.
I'm told the combat in the orginal is terrible, so I never bothered to play it.
The combat is not badly designed, it's just really repetitive, The story and chemistry between the leads seems to make up for it for most people but quite frankly their banter made me want to vomit.
In no particular order.

Sure, I'll throw my snazzy hat into the mix.
a) No repeat franchises, otherwise I'd have six games from one on this list.
b) No particular order.

Super Mario Bros. 3
Final Fantasy V
