The best video games based on movies | Digital Trends Spanish

Video games based on films are often forgotten, generally because they are not able to reflect the essence of the original film, as is the case with Superman 64 Y Aliens: Colonial Marines. However, in recent years developers have taken a different direction. Instead of releasing a game to advertise a soon-to-be-released movie, studios have been creating different experiences: they put us in the universe of some movie, but they tell us a totally different story. Next, we leave you the best games based on movies.

Since you are here, you may be interested in reviewing our list with the best (and worst) movies based on video games.

Alien: Isolation

Your goal is not to shoot everything that moves. Encounters with a xenomorph will be brief and anxiety will overwhelm you as you try to outrun the beast. Almost the entire game focuses on sneaking through narrow corridors and using tools to evade the creature, not on defeating it.

Marvel’s Avengers

video games based on movies

Although Marvel’s Avengers It’s not exactly based on Marvel’s multi-million dollar movie franchise, it borrows a lot from it. In addition to Kamala Khan, you have access to the same list of Avengers: Thor, Hulk, Iron Man, Black Widow, and Captain America. Despite Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics receiving a lot of criticism for Gaming Items as a Service, Marvel’s Avengers it is still an action game with a single player campaign that you can enjoy.

After the 15 to 20 hours of the campaign, you will spend your time putting together your own version of the Avengers, taking on the baddies in a variety of scenarios that will become familiar to you. Each hero has their own skill tree, and if you want to unlock them all, you’ll be hooked for hours.

Jurassic World Evolution

Jurassic World Evolution, one of the best video games based on movies

Jurassic World Evolution is the last thing one would expect from a title based on Jurassic park. It’s a simulator in which you manage a dinosaur park that spans five islands. Evolution includes the voices of Jeff Goldblum, Bryce Dallas Howard, and BD Wong, and focuses on three types of skill trees: science, entertainment and security. Although the dinosaur park simulation is a bit of a strange genre, it works well here because it was developed by Frontier Developments, a studio that has a good grasp of the simulation genre.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War

Shadow of War, one of the best video games based on movies

Same as with Star wars, there are many games of Lord of the rings and most are not good. The two titles of Middle-earth (Shadow of Mordor Y Shadow of war) are a good exception. In both you are Talion and you share your body with the elf prince Celebrimbor. Your goal here is to stop Sauron.

Shadow of war is a prequel to the movies and while the universe is interesting to fans of Lord of the rings, we include this game also for its mechanics. In the game, you will have to face Sauron’s army of orcs. As you defeat the members of this, others, more and more powerful, will take their place. Neither tour will be the same as the other, as the enemies you make in the game will be determined by who is higher on your blacklist.

GoldenEye 007

The Nintendo 64 is not the best platform for shooting games, with its low fidelity graphics and inaccurate controls. However, thankfully, you can find a redesigned version of the game available for download to your pc for free.

John Wick Hex

Hex features expertly created animations in neon-filled settings. Although probably a triple A study could have fabricated an experience of John wick more visceral, Hex is a good title that offers a unique version of the franchise.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
