These days, there are so many video games out there; it can be quite dizzying choosing the right video game. If you are a movie fanatic, chances are you find video games based off your favorite movies. Here are some of the top video games based on movies
Harry Potter Game – There is a whole set of Harry Potter video games, one for each of the eight movies they have released. The games are developed for PlayStation, X-Box, Microsoft Windows, MAC and Nintendo game consoles. The first version was released on November 2001 and the game series follows the protagonist Harry Potter who discovers he is a wizard and his subsequent adventure in the wizard world as he received training in wizardry from the Hogwarts School and where he makes friends. Though the game received mixed reviews, I personally like this since I am a big fan of Harry Potter series and own all seven books from the series. The graphics have improved from what it was in the beginning and the game is completely based on the movie.
Cars 2 – This is a racing game based on Cars 2 and is part of their franchise. You get to jump into the world of cars with a new spy theme just like in the movie. The game features many Cars movie characters and you get to compete in world-class racing as well as train and take part in action packed spy adventures. This game is compatible with PlayStation consoles and Nintendo-3DS
Lego Stars Wars – We have this video game on Wii where Star Wars Lego characters such as Hans Solo, Princess Leia and many more take part in different levels of war against Darth Vader and his army. The game is very kid friendly and has more than 200 levels that we have been playing this since last Christmas and have finished only about 50 levels. The graphics on the game is very good and the levels are not too easy or too difficult.
Jurassic Park Game – I grew up watching Jurassic Park and I can never forget how awesome that movie was. The Jurassic Park games were released by Sega and are adapted from the movies and the novel itself. It is a standard action video game with different characters that has to navigate from one end to another to complete the level. During that process, they have to fight and defeat the enemies or dinosaurs that roam the island with various weapons.

The game takes the characters from the movie and brings them to you as you can navigate about 15 different worlds, defeating the Evil Lord Business and collecting everything in your path. If you are yet to watch the movie, beware many scenes in the game are from the movie and may contain spoilers. It is a fun game to explore different worlds, doing instruction builds and much more.
