I guess people have cottoned on to the fact that the majority of movie tie in games suck.

Why bother even asking the question? It's like asking "Where are all the natural disasters and biological plagues?".

I popped one in yesterday, well not really a tie-in but a spiritual successor, Stranglehold. The textures haven't held up well, but the game is a blast.

That game was such a disappointment to me....just felt like a bad Max Payne clone.

I bought the CE brand new for five bucks, because I wanted the HD Hard Boiled, the game was an afterthought. Tried it out, and ended up playing it through, so it was a win-win for me.

They suck. About time we are seeing less of these. Games are their own medium, there is no need to water them down to crappy inferior movies. It is the same thing with game movies.

very good article! i was just talking about this a few weeks ago, the next hurtle is the shovel ware of motion control games and publishers pushing out games so often that are so similar to other games in the market that they never get to latch on with a community making them a waste of time in the big gaming picture.
