Games Based On Movies
« on: May 22, 2012, 21:44:56 PM »
The vast majority of people agree that most games based on movies are terrible. However there are a few good ones out there and earlier on I was trying to think about some and it brought back some memories.

Atari 2600: Ghostbusters, Pigs In Space, Empire Strikes Back, M.A.S.H, Buck Rodgers
Megadrive: Dick Tracy, Terminator 2, Alien 3, Rambo 3, Batman
Atari ST: Hudson Hawk, Batman, Robocop 3, Predator, The Adams Family
Mega CD: The Terminator, Batman Returns, Hook, Cliffhanger, Dracula
Atari Lynx: Batman Returns, Dracula, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, Alien Vs. Predator
Saturn: Alien Trilogy, Die Hard: Arcade, Batman Forever, Casper, Die Hard Trilogy
Jaguar: Dragon: Bruce Lee Story, White Men Can't Jump, Alien Vs. Predator, Highlander
Gameboy: Terminator 2, Robocop, Universal Soldier, Batman

Not saying much, I am actually trying to think of another Bond game that is any good.

Gremlins also appeared on:

2600 (differs to 5200 ver.i think).

Gremlins:Unleashed on GB.

There's a TEXT adventure on BBC, C64, Speccy etc (Gremlins:The Adventure).

Gremlins 2 had good few differing versions:

The New Batch on Nes/GB, differs from the ST/C64/CPC/DOS+Speccy game and there's another take again, on DOS only.

The Spy Who Loved Me on ST/Amiga was pretty good as well.

C64 version rather rubbish though.

There is a 2600 version of Gremlins but it is nothing like the 5200 version.  Totally different games.  :)

Gameboy:Universal Soldier

*Cough* Turrican *Cough*  :)
Spiderman 2 on the PS2 which was lovely just to explore the city
The only one that instatntly comes to mind is Star Wars Rogue Squadron III Rebel Strike on the Gamecube which absolutely rocked!
