An article exploring why movie tie-in games always suck.
Because they're rushed and have a much lower budget than their movie original. And bad devs maybe.
Some are ok, Kung Fu Panda is a great game :P
Cause they want to make a quick buck out of it. Sometimes there´s a decent movie tie-in game but that´s only because some companies demand a certain quality for certain franchises even in videogame form.
Movie tie-in games typically get 9 months of development, when really development should start two years ahead.
Except for Star Wars. Lord of the Rings. Spider Man. Goldeneye...
As soon as this guy said Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy sucked I stopped reading.
