The summer movie season kicks off this week which usually coincides with the arrival of poorly conceived tie-in videogames. Senior Editor Travis Meacham addresses the problems with movie tie-in games but offers hope for a couple exceptions this summer.
The article pretty much nailed it. You can't place an arbitrary date of completion on a game, and expect that anything good is going to come of it. It's unfortunate, because at this point, I automatically assume if a game is based on a movie, it's going to be complete crap. I don't even give the game a chance. I wish the people behind these games would just stop.
I really enjoyed the Lego Star Wars games, and looking forward to the upcoming iterations (Indiana Jones and Batman). Transformers was a poor game I admit, but the PC version was significantly less in price and I happen to be a huge Transformers toy fan, so I am more forgiving on that one.
