Ah, the movie licenses, they are merchandised as the next generation of gaming and something cool and awesome, but in the end, it's just Godzila's s*** in the form of a DVD/Blu-ray.

But, there are some cases that these games might be Golden Nuggets instead of a 2nd Hurricane Katrina.

So, this is Hypah, and this is the Top 5 Best and Worst Movie Licensed games, the ones that are good are in Cyan and the bads are in Red.


Hey, did you know that Vin Diesel has a video game studios?
No, then you must check out this game, it's bloody fun, it has exagerated violence, the game's stelth focus is good and you can kill enemies with screwdivers.

How awesome is that.
This game is like a mixture between Manhunt, Metal Gear Solid and any FPS, it makes a perfect mix for this genres, and Chris don't worry, you're initially limited to guns at first, so it's not about just running like a retard and shoot, no this game requires more inteligence.

Oh, and Vin Diesel also likes Dungeons and Dragons...Wow, Vin you're a dork


If Riddick is inteligent, Spider-man 3 is plain dumb, the film was horrible for having nothing to do with the comic, too much melodrama, emo peter parker, dumb storyline and they made venom look like Raiden from Metal Gear Solid 2.

The gameplay is confusing, the enemies are overpowered, the fights tooks a long time to the point you become bored rather than entertained and the Black suit doesn't change anything, it just has this rage meter, that takes a long time to fill up and when you use it for 15 seconds, it's already over.

The New York free-roam area interests more, but it quickly becomes dull, and camera mechanics are terrible.

Don't buy this game or your eyes will melt.


Jurassic Park is awesome: It's thrilling, it's exciting, the action scenes are cool and made part of our childhoods, so is Virtua Cop: It's fast paced, it's action-based and that Sega All-Stars Tennis Virtua Cop minigame totally beats the crap of the main gameplay itself.

But, what if we mix togheter.

It makes one of the best arcade games in history, The Lost World really is good at that, it has a great feel when you play, the action is intense, gameplay is overall fun which makes that Rambo game that Sega look jealous and what's more awesome: Dinosaurs!

Not to mention, that when I played in a local arcade, there was a room just for this game, which had a cinema-like screen, THX sound, IMAX cinema quality and now, it's in 3D, oh and it's cheap, it's like every fanboy's dream come true.


Don't get too excited Jurassic Park, you also had your dark years, because a game with similar name to the Sega Game was released for Saturn, Genesis and Playstation.

Animations are poor, gameplay is useless, no seriously, the humans are to weak and there are hard to attack dinosaurs, the dinosaur’s gameplay is dumb and not to mention, the graphics are really, really bad.


It’s Batman; can you get more awesome than that?
The NES Batman was a really good game, it played like the NES Ninja Gaiden, the music was catchy, the gameplay was good, Spear gun is kind of fun and who doesn’t like to be Batman throwing batarangs and punching enemies to death.
Not to mention, it was hard, and that was the fun purpose of the game.

The film Thor was nice, but let’s admit, it had no action scenes and seemed more of a comedy film rather than an action packed film, but Black Heimdall was cool, Asgard was detailed and the humour is pretty good.
But then, Sega having the marvel film license said: “We don’t give a crap about this film’s story, let’s make our own, so we can have money”
And there you have it, A god of war generic Hack n Slash which is as generic as bayonetta, finishers are repetitive, gameplay is dull and the enemies are the same.
SEGA, how can your marvel film games be so bad?
Oh, and I’m not talking about the Nintendo version, they came out pretty good actually, even though Wii version is mindless, it’s still very fun to pick.


Telltale is wonderful at making Point and Click games, they’re usually really fun and have a really complex story.
And Back To the Future is no exception, the game is nicely detailed, the voice acting is superb featuring Christopher Lloyd and Claudia Wells, Fascinating story and has that movie feel from the franchise and really cares about the fans.
If a Back to the Future 4 is made, please make it like this game.


This game is an abomination, it tries to get into that Gears of War-mania, but it simply can’t, the graphics are bad, especially if it’s a PS3 game, the game’s length makes you want to brake this game for wasting your money, unlike shattered dimension, lack of creativity for the enemies and Poor A.I. Don’t believe me, well the enemies stands in one spot and usually doesn’t even shoot you it only shoots like walls and the air.
This reveals Skynet’s worse enemy: THE AIR!
*dramatic music*

Let’s do a recap before we get to the number 1 best:
5. Riddick
4. The Lost World: Jurassic Park
3. Batman
2. Back to the Future: The Game
And now…

Yeah, Goldeneye 007 is the best game on the movie licensed shelves.
Heck, this is a movie licensed game, that you can consider it’s a game.
Later, there would have been Perfect Dark and Timesplitters, but without this game, it wouldn’t have been nothing, great shooting fun, awesome mission, gadgets and guns and the best multiplayer game which proofs that good multiplayer doesn’t have to be online.

Now the worst Recap before we get to the shitty one.
5. Spider-man 3
4. The Lost World: Jurassic Park for Playstation
3. Thor
2. Terminator Salvation

And now…
This doesn’t need a picture, people have pretty much already guessed it, it’s superman 64 Iron Man!
With terrible gameplay, clunky controls, terrible framerate, it’s glitchy, and the camera is terrible, so is linear open world, which seems horribly designed.
Well at least it had good voice acting and good character graphics, too bad that Downey, Jr. couldn’t save it.

Looks like somebody didn't cover the even worse movies. You're missing a lot of REALLY bad s***. I am disappointed in this thread.

I believe the best licensed movie game title belongs to E.T. Atari!
