Top Ten Games Based on a Movie

The motion-picture licence is seemingly as much of a curse as it is a blessing with videogames. Though promising a receptive audience for the release of a videogame tied to a movie, there’s also the famous general rule that, more-often-than-not, games based on films are not as enjoyable as franchises born in the games industry. Many have tried to break free of the shackles of pre-judgement, but have failed for one reason or another. And while that’s Enter the Matrix all over, there are a few that have managed to be more successful. (Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, Culture, Mobile, Nintendo DS, PC, PS3, PSP, Retro, Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader, Spider-Man 2, Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, Wall-E, Wii, Xbox 360)

Riddick was awesome, but some of the choices on this list were a little random. Several games from franchises such as Aliens, Star Treck, Lord of the Rings and others deserve a spot more than Home Alone. Heck, I'd even pick the NES Gremlins 2 game over it.

I really liked The Two Towers. It is really rare that a movie to game adaption isn't an abortion.

rogue squadron isnt a movie game, its loosely based on canon of the movies...

batman sucks too.. so does cars, and wall-e and home alone, etc etc

where is?
lion king on the genesis (done by same team who did alladin)
super star wars (these are actual movie games)
the old indiana jones adventure games for pc
or hell even "the thing" for the ps2 (not great but pretty good)
