Well as it goes when a game is turned into a movie it ends up like crap and the same can pretty much be said when a movie is then turned into a game (typically its so they can bleed the masses for more money off of the fame of the movie)

Wait, you play as a billionare playboy, but you need to complete objectives to get money to upgrade your suit?

What, is Pepper Potts controlling the purse strings now?

"Now tony, you spent $3 billion on this suit. I'm not letting you spend any more on it unless it gets some use."

Ah, reminds me of that lovely Fantastic Four disaster of a game.

Ouch, just reading that was painful, imagine playing it! Games and Movies do not mix well indeed.... I am still waiting for the I Am Legend game to appear....

Not a single film that became game worth. Neither the opposite except Hitman. What a movie :)

Uhmm.. Final Fantasy Advent Children? That one is an awesome movie. In fact I just watched it yesterday.

Oh, how glad I am that you didn't send it to a freelancer. I might never have forgiven you for that :p

The questions is, since there has never (to my knowledge) been a good movie-game tie-in, why do we always think that this time it'll be different?

Is it because development times are so short compared to decent games? Or is it because developers are bound by the constraints of the film? If we could know the reasons why, maybe we'd get better film-based games.

I'm not holding out any hope, though. I think that movie tie-in games are just another way for the studios to fleece the gullible.

Painkiller Punisher (sorry got mixed up) wasn't bad for an hour or two's slaughter...

Batman on the speccy was pretty good if I remember correctly...

Shame, I quite liked the look of this after the demo on XBL. The demo deffinitly left me wanting to play a bit more any way.

GoldenEye?
Alien Versus Predator?
Doom? (I thought the film was OK)
Silent Hill? (I thought the film was alright)
TRON? (2.0 the games was ok and Discs of Tron was fantastic)

...or anything to do with Pokemon?

Wasn't that Chronicles of Ridick game pretty good? Better than the film in fact! :p

Totally agree, GoldenEye on the N64 rocked, and I have great memories of LANs, Beer and AVP.

Do star wars games count? I've liked a few of those. Like Kotor and rogue squadron!
CardJoe 9th May 2008, 11:57 Quote
I'd say Chronicles of Riddick and most Star Wars games don't count because they aren't strictly based on the film, but a universe tie-in. That said, Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight and Chronicles of Riddick were both awesome games.

They never stop making rubbish licence-games, do they? I have no idea who buys this crap.

Pfft - Stark has the right idea, it's Rogers who's being a tool.

his heart is eventually replaced with an oh-so-subtle glowing ball
minor quibble there- his heart isn't replaced, the little glowy thingy powers an electromagnet that prevents shrapnel from migrating into his heart and killing him.

why he doesn't just go for surgery to get that crap out permanently, i have no idea.

and here's my explanation of why game-movie conversions almost never work:
in movies, you sit back and watch stuff happen.
in games, you put in effort to make stuff happen.

they're practically polar opposites.

I was watching someone play this on a PS3 in HMV the other day, even on a HD tv it still looks pretty poor in the grahics department and I agree that the levels look kind of empty.

As a juxta pose to the good games from good films how about good games from bad films?

One that's stuck in my mind for years was the Speccy version of Cobra, it was a sideways scrolling platform/shooter combo that was an immense amount of fun - which is something I can't say about the film.

just out of curiosity has any game ever received a lower mark, at bit-tech?

Matrix: Path of Neo was an excellent tie-in for the entire matrix series. The ending sucked, but the brothers themselves said there's not much you can do about that.

The Terminator 3 tie-in was also an excellent game. My roommate and I had loads of fun running through that third-person shooter.

Going the other direction (game to movie) I have three titles I always say. Tomb Raider, Mortal Kombat (just the first one), and Super Mario Brothers.
