What's your favorite movie licensed video game?

With so many out there and not a lot of them get great reviews, I was wondering if there was a hidden gem that you love above all the rest.

For me, nothing comes close to "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers". It was tough and challenging and I couldn't wait to see what was next. And the successive "Perfect" kills was awesome!

The thrill of finishing after so many hours of hardwork was second-to-none.
Of course, I haven't played "The Return of the King" yet, but this was one that just stayed with me.

Star Wars: KOTOR. By a mile.

The Two Towers was pretty good as well. ROTK I thought was a little overly difficult with the mission objectives being unclear and taking some trial and error to figure out.

I haven't played a lot in recent years, but I really liked "Spider-Man 2". The repetition was a drag, but swinging around New York City -- even if I wasn't playing through a mission -- was some of the most fun I had this entire past generation.

Chronicles of Riddick since it went beyond what was in the movies and filled in things that were alluded to in them. So instead of just replaying what happens in one of the movies you actually get to experience/expand on the universe created by the movies.


I also thought Alien v Pedator (the console version, but the PC was enjoyable as well) was a nicely crafted game, it's hard to do a RTS for the console but I think they did a good job. Although while, like Riddick, they expanded on the universe created by the movies/comics, the story in the game left a lot to be desired.

For a third recommendation Tron Killer App has been enjoyable so far as well. I'm not sure how far into I am but I like they way it's does the weapons/equipment and racing the light cycles is fun However the Xbox version atleast is a little buggy at times.

IIRC I thought it was the other way around. I went straight through ROTK but the tower at the end of Two Towers hung me up for quite awhile (or do I have them backwards?).

I also really liked LOTR: The Third Age and KOTOR as well.

Tower was at the the end of TTT, it was kind of an extra level though, just had to keep beating guys and going up to unlock something (isildur I believe).

either Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, or Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. both were a blast to play and I'm usually not a fan of movie licensed games.

I always enjoyed the Gameboy version of Batman (1989).

Rogue Leader for GameCube is probably my favorite. I like the sequel, Rebel Strike, but the gound missions kind of drag it down a little.

I liked KOTOR, 1st Rogue Leader, and Battlefront of the Star Wars universe (plus all the SNES trilogy), Goonies II was cool too but I held off playing it for the longest time because I wanted to the first one first, Goldeneye, but probably my favorite was Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure for the PC. Not really but still sort of fun.
