I must admit that I am far from computer gaming. So far that this distance can not be measured by words or any other means of description. However, recently the situation has changes as I have discovered a type of games which seem to be suitable for me – games based on movies. I am a great fan of cinematographic art and when a good movie ends I feel a little sad like the part of my life have ended with the final titers. But the games developing the idea of the film is an excellent way to return to your favorite story and even become a part of it since you are playing the role of one of the characters. Here is the list of film-based games I recommend you to play, even if you are not much of a gamer, like me.
1. Spider Man 2. This game was released in 2004. Of course, there were games about superheroes before this release, but this particular game reflects the feeling of being a superhero better than any other game of this type. The creators brought realism to this story. While playing you really feel that you have super power to save New York from evil. The graphics is quite simple; it is a plot and the resemblance with the original movie which make this game worth playing.
2. The Matrix : Path of Neo. The release of this game was in 2005. This game is often underestimated as the other attempts to recreate the universe of the movie have failed. “Path of Neo”, however, presents a decent continuation of this story. A few years ago I was obsessed with this movie, I mean its first part. The game gave me the opportunity to dive into this fantastic world once again. One of the climax points in it is trying to defeat Agent Smith’s clan – operating Neo’s movements can be much fun.
3. X-men Origins: Wolverine. This game was released in 2009 and it resembles “Spider man 2” to some extent. It also provides an opportunity to feel x-men power and become a character you like most in this movie. The relation to the original film is not so close, however, as long as you are provided with various opportunities to kill the enemies you do not care about it much.
4. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. This game does not follow the plot of the movie. Instead, it presents a new and unusual view on the Lucas’s universe. The graphics is far from perfect, but you forget to notice these details as far as you are completely captured by the complicated story. The dialogs are made with perfect sense, and the unexpected twist of plot in the end of the game does not allow you to get bored even for a slightest moment.
5. Disney’s Aladdin. Yes, this game has also found its place in my list as it provides us with finely made game play, nice music and the feeling that you can move and run freely, which makes completing the tasks enjoyable.
