10 Best Movie Based Games

Tuesday, February 8 by Louis Yang

Movie-based games are seldom good, but here are the 10 best movie-based games of all time. These are the games that surmounted the movie game stereotype and succeeded at being good games! They may be different from their respective movies, but as stand-alone games, they're equally enticing.

  1. Scarface: The World Is Yours The game continues the story of Tony Montana after his days as a drug lord, but with a twist. The game pretends as if he survived Solsa's raid and is out for revenge. A very Gran Theft Auto-esque game, but with its own signature style. The voice acting for Tony is pitch perfect and you'll marvel at the ability to play as the iconic Al Pacino's Scarface.
  2. The Thing A game based on John Carpenter's ''The Thing,'' which was based on a novel, ''The Thing'' is one of the forefathers of modern third person adventure/horror games. The Thing gives the player are real feeling of being stranded in the Antarctic with an alien being possessing members of your crew.
  3. Blade Runner Mostly a point and click adventure with some combat mixed within, ''Blade Runner'' the game has incredible replay value and offers players an alternate view of life.
  4. Tron 2.0 A game that's just like the movie, it's all about the lights. Tron 2.0 takes its bland counterpart and spices it up with quick-paced gameplay and the infamous blue motorcycle races.
  5. GoldenEye 007 The granddaddy of first-person shooters, GoldenEye gives players a genuine feeling of being James Bond infiltrating a Russian base and rescuing the damsel in distress while saving the world. This game is timeless and will always be imitated but never duplicated.
  6. Batman Begins: The Game A game based on Christopher Nolan's "Batman Begins," this game allows players to become Batman and become one with the night to hunt down Ra's Al Ghul and his minions.
  7. GoldenEye 007 2010 A remake of the original masterpiece, but this time, James Bond is modeled after Daniel Craig instead of Pierce Brosnan to keep up with the modern movies. This game improves on the original by adding more epic cutscenes and a more coherent storyline. However, it's questionable whether Nintendo did this save cash in on the original's success and end their losing streak.
  8. Star Wars: X-Wing Vs. TIE Fighter A first-person view of battle as either one. It gives a genuine experience of being part of the Star Wars universe. The game was designed for multiplayer gaming because single-player doesn't have much to offer.
  9. Die Hard Trilogy Officer John McClane takes on baddies to save the day. Each game of the trilogy is unique to itself and are each equally good. It allows players to relive life as McClane and feel as if they were Bruce Willis kicking butt.
  10. Disney's Aladdin Not one for the combat freaks, but the music, beautiful art and free-feeling gameplay makes it a expansion of the imagination. Loyal to the original plot, this game is platforming at is very fines.
