Double Dragon and Super Mario Brothers were particularly awful
has never been a good film of a game. Ever.
Good games of films include Goldeneye, Chronicles of Riddick and a surprising number of Star Wars releases.
but there are a fuckload of game adaptations on the way it seems, so maybe you'll find something you like!
I thought Street Fighter was enjoyable though!
Chronicles of Riddick. The sneak kills were properly satisfying, as was that last bit with the big.. thing.
pwning my way through Harry Potter on the PS2 and i dont like HP
But for the 'other side' I suggest:
- The Indiana Jones adventure games
- The Star Wars simulator games
The original X-Wing totally owned me the summer of my A-Levels...and was the reason I failed them. Whoops.

THANKS UWE BOLL (although it's stone cold FACT that the first Mortal Kombat movies stands head-and-shoulders above all game-to-film adaptations before he even got involved).
Films-to-games: hell, that includes Ocean's legendary 1990's run on the 8 and 16-bits, so a win is assured. Batman: The Movie (FUCK DID YOU SEE THAT I JUST HIT THE JOKER INTO THE ACID WELL HE WASN'T THE JOKER YET BUT YOU GET ME), T2, Rambo, The Untouchables (the saving-the-pram level; the final level, hilariously titled 'Nitty gets his'), Total Recall..
LOL - we'll all be very dead by the time that's released. Also, can't wait for Duke Nukem Forever, should be out this year, right?
whilst listening to My Vitriol's second album and The Chinese Democracy!
Silent Hill was actually pretty good. Not great, but decent enough...
clearly is the undisputed winner at movie licences.
And Street Fighter: The Later Years
That made me giggle. The Minesweeper one that is.
