Tough topic, nothing that really comes to attention, but I'll agree on the original big license: Star Wars arcade.

Alien 3 is a great platform shoot-em-up, thankfully nothing like the film!

There are some great movie licences out there, many of which have already been mentioned, such as Robocop, Goldeneye, Platoon and Batman the Movie.

However, the best for me also happens to be my favourite arcade game of all time - Star Wars by Atari - no other game, (with the possible exception of Discs of Tron - also a real contender if you count the sit-down cab), has made me feel like I was actually in the movie. Amazing what a bit of good gameplay, a few decent movie samples and a bit of imagination can do!

That was the problem I had! Listen to the music rather than play the game :lol:

I don't know if it is too recent..
But how about Riddick?
Escape from Butcher Bay was a surprise (in a good way) game for me

For me it's easily The Lord of the Rings The Two Towers, my first PS2 game and it was truly fantastic.

In fact I'll load it up in a bit and give it a good blast.

There were some good ones and some bad ones but, for me, my favourite movie-based game was Rebelstar II by Julian Gollop. It took some very direct inspiration from Aliens and while it lacked the official licence, it was clearly the best Aliens game ever made and still my favourite Speccy game ever.

Platoon (C64) One in the eye for 'traditional' platform based licences. Even managed to recreate the tone of the film with some superb levels, surrounded by some fantastic music. The 'Tunnel' section is outstanding.

Hudson Hawk (C64) what did I say about platform based licences again? One of the strangest licences gets a great little *cough* platform game. Quirky with some nice puzzle based action.

Aliens Vs Predator (PC) Still the best 'Aliens' game around and that's saying something. Atmospheric and bum clenchingly scary!

bram stoker's dracula for the master system- one of the few good movie tie-ins and a great game that shows the master system to it's full potential
