    Default Very odd movie based games

    What were some of the weirdest movie based games you ever played? Not best or worst, just.... really odd.

    ET (thought I'd get that out first)
    Baby's Day Out for Genesis
    Rambo for NES
    And don't bring up that stupid girlie Aladdin rip off! Shantea?

    Didn't dwarves hop around and knock you in the knee caps in Total Recall on NES? Can't remember, been a while.

    Other than that Beetlejuice, and Friday The 13th on NES were both pretty whack.

    What the hell was up with Friday the 13th anyway, I couldn't figure that game out. Course I haven't played it in years. All I remember is that sometimes I would go in a door and Jason was there, and sometimes he wasn't, hell if I knew back then, I just turned it off.

    Jaws was weird but kind of addictive, but Nightmare on Elm Street sucked. As far as TV based games Airwolf and Knight Rider for the NES were terrible. Airwolf was a little better but not much. Come on KITT never ran out of shield and didn't have a machine gun.

    I have to agree with Hellstar on this... nothing was more dissapointing then being killed by a cordless jumpying vaccum cleaner in HA2.

    Unfortunately, you ar correct. They also wore pink jogging suits. And the other enemies included people walking out of alleyways and guys in trash cans with Nerf ball guns.

    Well, the movie was weird, but the game's weird too: Moonwalker.

    Use dancing to controll/ defeat zombies, then transform into a robot and rescue children.

    I'd go with Cliffhanger.

    2'nd would be Dracula or Frankenstien on multiple systems.

    Bebe's kids. Yikes. Also, Double Dragon on the MVS. It's actually based on the movie and has digitized movie scenes.

    Jaws was on the NES. It was pretty boring to me. You basically move a ship around on a map and wait to get the message "You've hit something!" (I think). Then you're a little swimmer with spears you throw at various jellyfish and sharks (and Jaws of course). Hit him enough times and win.

    Come on now, I think that Nightmare on Elm Street is a damn good game. What other sidescrolling action game boasts four player action on the NES? Offhand, I can't think of any.....IMO, another fine job by Rare.

    Ok maybe I was a little harsh. It just didn't seem to fit the movies well enough for my tastes since I am a big Nightmare on Elm Street fan. The four player thing never was a factor for me since I never had a four player adapter.

    This game has led to the most unanswerable question in the universe:


    Why do the spiders dance with you?

    I've got to go with Rambo for the NES. Never in the history of license-based movie games has there ever been a title so utterly cracked out. Watch Rambo fight bosses, whose heads bloat up into freakish caricatures whenever they're hit! Witness Rambo save his girlfriend by intentionally avoiding her in a later stage! Gasp as Rambo fight such deadly enemies as spiders and the dreaded moths! Finally, scratch your head in disbelief when Rambo returns home from his tour of duty and throws kanji at the officer who betrayed him, turning him into a small frog!

    JR

    P.S. You can actually go BACK to Vietnam if you lure the frog to one of the North/South portals, then use it while the frog is standing on it. Why? I don't know. It's just one of Rambo's many strange mysteries.

    Well, in that case, I think I can see your point of view. To be honest, about the only time I do play that game is with four players, so that's probably the reason I like it so much. As a single player game, it probably is underwhelming, but I always thought it was cool to play a 4-player action game.
