Why do movie tie-in games always suck?

An article exploring why movie tie-in games always suck. (Culture)

Because they're rushed and have a much lower budget than their movie original.

And bad devs maybe.

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.

interesting article.

one thing though.

"There’s been a fair amount of crap in the past decade, the Iron Man games were complete write-offs, even the voices of Robert Downey Jr. and Don Cheadle couldn’t save them, although I’d be hard pressed to offer examples in which Don Cheadle’s intervention has ever made anything better, to be honest."

here's one
