    We all know movie based games suck, but once in a while there is one that actually stands out.

    What are some?

    For me it is the Lord of the Rings games. I though both the 2nd and 3rd were very good games. Both had excellent combat tactics.

    Spiderman (only the first one), Lord of the Rings, and Enter the Matrix are probably the only Movie-to-Game ports I've enjoyed.

    Stranglehold, though that's more of a sequel to a movie.

    ET on the Atari 2600 was a classic... for the wrong reasons

    Goldeneye and LotR:BFME2 are the only 2 I've had that I've enjoyed

    Another vote for Goldeneye - finally a game that didn't just tack its licence onto a sub-standard platformer and hope that that would be enough to shift some units.

    Goldeneye is awesome.
    The Godfather was also good fun.

    Though I never got into it, Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay was supposedly quite good.

    All those were very good even though they aren't exactly games of movies.

    I'd have to say Goldeneye is far the best movie based game. Though, technically speaking it's a boo based game :D

    Hmm true. I guess more movie franchises...

    Goldeneye or LOTR for me then.

    Oh my god remember when you fell into the holes o_0 it was impossible to get back out! I think that game was in the top 10 worst games of all time list.

    +1 for Goldeneye on N64. One can count on 99% of movie based games and game based movies to completely blow.

    Lord of the rings action games for the PS2....those were nice. I sucked at it until I figured out the parry system.

    Spider-Man 2, a lot of the earlier Star Wars games (Jedi Knight 2, Rogue Squadron 1 and 2, etc)...that's about all I can think of.

    Only the first one? You must be confused...the second one was the good one.
