Does anyone else enjoy playing movie based games? They are usually really short and easy to play, but it feels rewarding beating games so I always liked them. Toy Story 3 is an example of a really good movie game. Most of them are pretty shit though compared to real games. So does anyone have any recommendations for games based on movies?

The chronicles of riddick games were great, The King Kong game was actually more enjoyable the watching the movie (and took about as long to play through too). I also played the wanted game, which is super short and a bit too easy even on the hardest difficulties, but isn't a bad game and worth a rental for a week or two or to buy heavily discounted.

That's a shame. I still have the originals somewhere.

Had a lot of fun with this one as a kid. Played the shit of both it & The Two Towers on my PS2. Been meaning to replay it on PC at some point soon.

The Battle For Middle Earth 1 & 2 are probably my favorite LotR games, though. The Third Age also wasn't too bad. Both it & the more recent War In The North were a bit of a guilty pleasure. Conquest was pretty lackluster, but I didn't mind it, since it was basically just SW:Battlefront, but with a LotR skin. Still haven't had a chance to play Shadow of War, but Mordor was fairly mediocre to me.

Never played these two, but, from what I hear, they're supposed to be pretty good. It's too bad The Warriors was never released on PC, though. Reminds me a bit of Manhunt, which I quite enjoyed and is basically a snuff slasher version of The Warriors with horror elements and also, fortunately enough, saw a PC release. I wonder why The Warriors was never ported. Copyright issues? Laziness? Seems to have suffered the same fate as RDR in a way.

I loved the movie, but I have no idea what that Bladerunner game is like. Apparently it has lots of endings and everything is randomized so you don't know which of the characters is a replicant. Sounds like sort of a mess, but I guess I'll find out whenever I decide to play it.

I played this back in 2017 on PC and mostly enjoyed it. The squad trust mechanic was pretty half baked & gimmicky, though. I remember how I administered a blood test on one of my team mates just before a hallway that led to a boss and it came up clean, but the second I stepped into the hallway not, but a few moments later, my guy immediately turned into a monster. Couldn't help, but shake my head at the time given how awkward & immersion shattering it was, since I guess the devs wanted you solo when fighting bosses no matter what. The ending was also pretty tedious what with that warehouse filled with C4 (AI would just run into it and blow themselves up, which was funny) and fighting lots of guys with guns that can one shot you, instead of thing monsters. Overall it was OK and I didn't mind the pandering fan references.

I played this for a few hours at one point. There are tons of games like this around this era, basically devs come up with a cool idea for a mechanic, make a game based around it, but they don't even test to see if the mechanic is actually fun before they release it. So many shitty games with an interesting premise.

I forgot about The Warriors. It looked really good but I never got the chance to play it.

Some games that are pretty good but very old are The Lion King and Aladdin for Sega Genesis. Lots of good memories.

Lots of experimentation and middle budget (A and AA) releases from smaller studios.

I liked Spider-man 2 on PS2. It was basically Grand Theft Auto but with Spider-man.

Played Spiderman 2 as a kid on PC but got stuck at one of the early bosses, where it BSODed quite a lot. One of the SpongeBob games used the same engine as GTA3 too.

G-Force is apparently suprisingly great and I think it just got ported to steam

I remember watching this movie when I was 12, and then playing the game later. It's a very fun and addicting game. It's open world that includes character customization, upgrades and unlocks, a fun story, and lots of neat areas to explore.

Same, it was really good. Mini games were really challenging. Would have fucked the cows too.

I loved this game as a kid and hadn't yet seen the movies. I wanted more of it so I opted for King Arthur, safe to saybit wasn't in the same league. Still fun though.

Only one, the game based on the movie minority report. I fucking LOVED it as a kid. It's obviously nostalgia goggles and the fact that I hadn't watched the movie I imagine but i loved almost everything about it. The setting, the futuristic guns, the police, the ost, the scifi aspects, the motherfucking JETPACK LEVEL which fueled my daydreams and sometimes dreams to this day(every so often i'll dream i have that jetpack). I even loved the tutorial level because Tara Strong voiced the instructor and her voice is just so lovely.

I still haven't watched the movie though and probably never will at this point.

I dropped this game after a retarded partner ran in front of me when I was using a flamethrower and died. If there is something I don't tolerate in games it's escort missions.

No Goldeneye? This is a mouse aim hack playthrough. Many of the 007 games are pretty good, especially the ones on Gamecube with the driving sequences.
