10 Terrible Video Games Based On Movies

WC writes: Video games based on movies on the whole are, let’s face it, a load of old tosh most of the time, and it’s not hard to see why; developers blow all their cash obtaining the license to adapt a popular film, and have little left to actually pump into, you know, hiring programmers with a fully functioning cerebrum. Hence the reputation video game adaptations of movies have earned as generally being ropey, with only a few notable exceptions, such as Goldeneye on the N64. Here are ten particularly offensive instances of a studio throwing quality to the wind in favour of a quick buck. (Fight Club, Jumper: Griffin's Story, PS2, PS3, Retro, Wii, Xbox, Xbox 360)

I always remembered Friday the 13th as one of the most horrifying games I have ever played.

Battleship: the board game : the movie :the game : the book.

Lets face it, we need more books based on video games, as much as battleship needs a longer title.
