Movie-based game

A game based on a movie. They all tend to be really bad, with the exception of a few games like GoldenEye 007, Spider-man 2 and The Chronicles of Riddick. Also known as a "Licensed Game".

The reason these games often suck is because the development is usually rushed. The movie studio often asks the developer to release the game within days of the release of the film. While the movies may get a year or two to film, movie games get maybe 9 months.

In some cases, such as the game Fantastic Four and Pirates of the Caribbean, the game was in development but was not intended to have any relation to the movie. In the cases mentioned, Fantastic Four was supposed to be based on the comic book, while Pirates of the Caribbean was just a normal pirate game. This shift in direction forces developers to go over their game and change it to fit the movie, taking up more development time.
