Die Hard Trilogy = epic

"Are you aiming for these people?!"

"why yes I am!" - SPLAT!

also, you could drive a hotdog van.

Die Hard Trilogy was totally awesome... I love that game. For me the 2nd part was best, break out the GCon from Time Crisis and start cooking some fools!

Is it wrong that I quite enjoyed the first few levels of Jaws? I really enjoy the Street Fighter movie too (although *not* the game of it)...

For some reason while reading this I thought: Doesn't LOTR deserve a mention? It was pretty fun.

Oh and 007: Nightfire was pretty decent, not even close to the film, but it was a fun game.

My favourite movie tie-in, which I recently started playing again, is Scarface: The World is Yours.
Basically GTA with an 80s Miami twist and lots of swearing in foreign languages.
Has an awesome soundtrack too.
Definately worth a look if you like Scarface the movie. :)

Damn Tron 2.0.....

It was the only game that would continually 'BSOD' my system in 2004.

Never did figure out what caused it, but i suspect it was Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy 5.1 drivers.

"the ego-driven sequel was unapologetically awful"

No your wrong.....TCOR is a modern day classic......ITV2 show it every 2 days, therefore i am right and you are wrong....:))

I take great issue with this article, and it is entirely to do with the fact that only a couple (Aladdin and Die Hard) of the games mentioned are actually games based on films. The rest are either too loosely based on the film, or simply based in the universe. Only the two games mentioned are actually good and based on a movie.

The Thing, Riddick and Goldeneye are all based on actual films too...

Also, Goldeneye was amazing, I can still remember when I got my N64 and first played it. Those were the days, when you didn't have to sell a kidney to buy a console...

Tron 2.0 was a sleeper, had so much fun back in the day too

Trying to escape the disk format as it engulfed the entire level, as you tried to jump to a new partition was especially inspired... as was trying to download abilities as you were being attacked and cursing your slow download speeds :D

Crap, how did I forget Goldeneye?! Sorry, add that. Damn I loved that game.

But Riddick is not based on a film, it is based in the universe, and is a prequel to the films. And The Thing is based after the film.

I was unimpressed by most of the LotR games, though. Only Battle for Middle Earth II was half decent.

As it happens, I've just stumbled across my old copy of Blade Runner which I'm going to install in DOSBox on the Wife's NC10...

Spooky, I was just thinking about how awesome the Die Hard Trilogy was last night at work

Oh the hours I spent playing Die Hard. Its amazing how good the three games were. Yippiekayay @#$%!

Somebody nicked my PS1 disc of Die hard Trilogy (not the box though, just the disc), no idea who... The 2nd game was my favourite (<3 light gun games)

I think the X-MO: Wolverine game should have had a mention, I've really enjoyed playing it (in shortish bursts) over the last couple of weeks (+ it's got to be better than the film). If You've played "Viking", you'll know what to expect as it's very similar.

Alan wasn't pulled into the computer - Flynn was.

some of the LOTR games should get a mention at least.
the ones based on the ps2 (the ones named after the films) were half decent rpg/half n slashes.
The RTS ones based on the pc at first (battle for middle earth) and they were solid games

You mention that Tron 2.0 is for PC, Mac and the Xbox 360 when it was indeed for the original Xbox, not 360. Sorry to be a bit of a geek but the 360 didn't come out until 2 years after Tron 2.0:)

Disney pulled a load of great platformers based on their games out. I remember The Jungle Book was an equally decent platformer.

Good list, some excellent games in there. I'd like to add another couple to the list: Robocop vs The Terminator for pure unadulterated violence (and you get to nick Ed-209's gattling guns, sweet!) and Terminator 2: Judgement Day, one of the finest light-gun games on the Amiga.

Which actually reminds me, the finest combat flight sim on the entire Amiga range was a WW2 game called Reach for the Skies, also based on a film. I reckon there are actually a fair few decent games, they're just hidden under a mire of crap.

I remember having loads of fun with Cobra, Robocop and Batman on the speccy too.

One Disney game I always wanted but could never find was Timon and Pumbaa's Jungle Games. A collection of little almost-party games, before Nintendo ever came up with the idea...
