Movie Tie-in Games

4Player-"Everyone should be aware by this point how awful most movie tie-in games are. Not only does a studio have to try and adapt a movie to fit into a video game format, but there's also the time constraints to ensure the game releases in time with the movie. It may seem strange for a studio to shell out the cash for a video game just to promote the movie, but that is the intent behind most of these games. And, really, who can blame these developers for just pushing something out of lesser qualty? The game is just a marketing tool in the grand scheme of things and the pressure of the release date is enough to make any studio just breeze through these projects." (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
