When you think of current video games that are based upon things such as movie and cartoon franchises, your stomach tends to turn and get upset. Well, mine does anyway. Generally speaking, such games receive extremely low review scores and are panned by gamers, with only a few that manage to reach decent recognition and actually deserve that praise. Perhaps the last really great example was Spider-Man 2, which was released around the same time as the film. I had a lot of fun with that one, and I don't think I know anyone who looks back on it and thinks, "What a piece of fuckin' shit."
(The Thing was pretty damn good too...but moving onward...)
