Proof that good games based on movies are possible

Yeah this was fucking awesome rented it from Blockbusters so many times back in the day
One of the best LOTR games
The Return of The King game was really good also.
I even enjoyed the Fellowship game, even though it wasn’t based on the movies. But it was one of the first games I ever saw where you would shoot someone with an arrow and the arrow didn’t immediately disappear.
Spider-Man 2 (2004) is a solid movie to videogame adaptation. Not perfect by any means.
The kill combos!
The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie game was good.
Those cutscenes where the live action would cross fade to in game graphics were so dope.
It was good, but we had computer games based on movies prior which were good, much like we had super hero games prior to Arkham asylum which were good
Peter Jackson’s King Kong was fantastic
war in the north is a great game. I think a lot of lotr vidya is pretty good, tho.
There has been some truly excellent Star Wars games going back to the 1980s. Some directly based on the movies and some that are just set in that universe with unique stores.
Of course there have been some truly bad ones too…
Yes, this game was super fun when I was 12 and still is now at 29 when I found it in some boxes of my old stuff alongside my PS2. Even had my bro home with me to co-op like when we were kids.
Return of the King was even better.
Don’t forget the original battlefront and battlefront 2. Those both went up to par with the LOTR games
Edit: also LEGO Star Wars the complete saga and LEGO the lord of the rings
Someone clearly wasn’t alive for Lion King on Sega Genesis. Or Jurassic Park, even.
And sometimes the game can be a lot better than the movie.
Like, Wolverine Origins.
Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay is amazing and better than the movies imo
I know it isn’t based on the movies, but did anyone play the lotr third age game? i loved that game, i remember spending hours grinding out levels.
Enjoyed shadows of mordor/shadows of war too
Original Star Wars battlefront games
But good movies based on games, on the other hand…
Chronicles of Riddick: Butchers Bay was surprisingly awesome!
Nobody played Aladdin as a kid?
Same with Lion King.
Both decent games.
The first Harry Potter games blew my mind as a kid. I remember walking the halls of hogwarts with the moving staircase, learning new spells, flying, fighting the monsters and solving puzzles. Also, being affraid of Snape like any other kid (RIP Alan Rickman)
The Third Age was a great jrpg inspired game too.
Wait does LEGO Star Wars count
