In the past, video games based on movies have generally been bad. Superman 64 and Aliens: Colonial Marines are two prime examples, but there are countless others. Thankfully, developers have taken a different direction in recent years. Rather than simply releasing a game as a marketing tactic for an upcoming movie, developers are creating separate experiences set in the world of a film but with a unique story to tell. In this guide, we’ve rounded up the best video games based on movies.
These don’t necessarily have to follow the same plot as a specific film but could also be simply set in the same film universe.
Games that star the iconic wall-crawler have been hit or miss for years. For a hero as popular as Spider-Man, that always felt like a waste, especially considering how much potential there was to make a great game with his specific powers. Thankfully, the perfect developer was given the chance to make that game, and boy does it deliver. The swinging is near perfection, the combat fast and focused, and the story as gripping as any comic or film.
