Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh to Head HALO Adaptation
game: Halo
news | 10/04/05 | Shawn Rider
In an announcement sure to get gamers everywhere all worked up, Microsoft announced at the X05 Amsterdam expo that Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh (creators of the Lord of the Rings film trilogy and the upcoming King Kong) will be Executive Producers on the upcoming Halo movie. The news also means that Academy Award winning New Zealand effects house, Weta Digital, will also be involved in the movie, which is another great sign. It looks like Halo might just set the bar a little higher for the old game-to-film adaptation, just as it did for the console-based FPS and again for console-based online multiplayer.

Conker Live & Reloaded
game: Conker Live & Reloaded
review | 08/15/05 | Laurie Taylor
Conker was pretty much mindblowing when it came out for the N64. Of course, that was back in the day when GTA looked a lot like playing with Matchbox cars. Now that the gratuituous naughty humor is a bit more common in gaming, how does everyone\'s favorite raunchy squirrel hold up? Check Laurie\'s review for more.

Video Game Theory: The Videogame to Movie Craze: A trend that has to end?
Articles Archive | 03/05/05 | Chris Martin
Using many of the same storytelling conventions as the movie industry, it's not surprising that game plots have been turning up on film pretty consistently these days; few, as of yet, are really any good. What makes it so hard to turn a good game into a good movie? Is one medium really incompatible with the other? Chris doesn't think so, and he explains his views in this excellent and informed perspective of game-to-movie adaptations. If you don't want to lose faith in the movie industry's ability to make competent movies out of what should be excellent source material, this is an article you need to read before catching films like Alone in the Dark.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
game: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
review | 04/21/04 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Years after amazing worldwide moviegoers, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon is adapted for the interactive environment. So I know what you're thinking; it's another huge movie that is now also a videogame and we all know that means it's going to suck. But wait! This is a foreign language film not a Hollywood blockbuster, and the movie had cool kung-fu videogames can make cool kung-fu too! And they can't possibly have rushed it to time the release with the movie, the DVD release, or even the two year anniversary. Maybe there is hope after all... nope. Never mind. It sucks. Click here to find out why it disappoints so profoundly.

game: Max Payne II: The Fall of Max Payne
review | 11/01/03 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Want to make a legend? Here's the recipe: Take your usual action videogame, add a half pound of cool, two cups of kick ass, and a teaspoon of uber style. It worked last time, and Rockstar's latest, Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne: A Film Noir Love Story, improves on the origional title in almost every aspect. Click here John Woo style for the whole story.

The classic action film The Great Escape finds itself on the Xbox, 40 years after wowing audiences on the big screen. Combine stealth action and a famous story and what do you get-- A brilliant idea or another movie-to-game lame fest? Both, and Jeremy tells us why right here.

Pirates of the Caribbean Preview
game: Pirates of the Caribbean
preview | 06/05/03 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Bethesda is sticking with their proven formula of creating very deep RPGs with very pretty graphics and hundreds of hours of gameplay. Pirates of the Caribbean merely shares the name of the film; make no mistake that this is really a stand-alone game hoping to attract some duly deserved attention with name recognition. And there\'s no doubt that this is a contender for best pirate game ever.

Spider-Man 2 Preview

preview | 05/26/03 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Activision is still early in the development of their latest Spider-Man game, Spider-Man 2, which is set to coincide with the release of the second film. This time around, Spidey has access to the streets of Manhattan, and thanks to a liberal dose of THPS4-style mission assignment, he now takes on side missions for a much more robust gaming challenge. If you enjoyed the last game, then this one should be on your list.

INTERVIEW - Niel Wiser, President & Founder of UltraPrime Network
Articles Archive | 01/19/03 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
The Evolvers: A well selected name for what could constitute an entirely new perspective on massively multiplayer gaming. For years there have been videogames that have attempted to mimic the look and feel of Hollywood: vampire slayers, star trekkers, bounty hunters “ slews of voice actors trying to mimic other people in the name of a good videogame. It's amazing how rarely they succeed. Similarly, there are times when storylines built with the controls of a console or played out on the screen of the PC are used to produce a feature film. Resident Evil. Final Fantasy.

game: LOTR: The Two Towers
preview | 06/11/02 | Monica Hafer
The Lord of the Rings franchise has been fractured -- games are coming out from both Sierra and EA. EA has the movie license, and that will make all the difference. So far The Two Towers looks amazing, what with the hordes of orcs to cut down and the incredible interplay of film footage and game graphics. Click here to be amazed.

Tron 2.0 Preview (PC)
game: Tron 2.0
preview | 06/04/02 | Aaron Stanton
Let the eighties nostalgia well up in you, for Tron is not gone for good. A new movie and videogame will revive Tron, and for that we are grateful. Tron 2.0 is an FPS (that data disc is way, way cool) that has you sucked back into the computer. With graphics that look about as good as the original film, this is going to be fun. Click here.
