Topic: Best, Overlooked Licensed Games

I was recently taken with Alice in Wonderland for the DS, and it got me thinking that there are probably a handful of good licensed games that buck the trend. What are some great, licensed titles that were overlooked by bigoted, jaded gamers such as myself?

...your avatar is the best coincidence in the world.

OMEGA FACTOR FTW. That game was awesome!

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

Yes it was... I always intended on doing a complete playthrough on my GameBoy Player. Never got around to it.

Cars (as in the Pixar movie) on the Gamecube (and PS2 and 360?). Sublime racing game, in every respect. Plus open world roaming!

I always liked Medabots AX on the GBA, but it's kinda simple in retrospect. Then there's the Digimon World series. Omega Factor's a given. Not many other good ones I can come up with that aren't well-known...

The Godfather: Blackhand Edition and Scarface: The World Is Yours.
Two classic movie licenses made into two great openworld GTA-stylees for Wii (and other consoles).

Also Jungle Speed (WiiWare) by Next Level Games, a very fun and extremely polished licensed card game for up to 8 players locally.

Penguins & Friends - Hey! That´s My Fish! by EnjoyUp Games and LONPOS by Genki are two licensed board games for WiiWare. I thought they were quite good, but unfortunately the license ran out and the games are not available anymore.

apparently Tales of Phantasia was technically a licensed game. Based off of some book that was never published. Or so I've heard.

I read mixed reviews about Thor on the DS...
I love Wayforward, but the "License-Curse" has always kept me away.

I quite enjoy the Tron game on the Wii. Marvel: Ultimate Alliance is also pretty good, but that's it for me.

I totally agree with Cars there. I bought it for my son back when he was little and I would find myself playing it as much as him if not more. Some of my favorites are.........

Batman: Brave and the Bold (Wii)
Batman Returns (SNES)
Marvel Ultimate Alliance
Indiana Jones Greatest Adventures (SNES)

Oh, Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine on the N64. Glitchy at times - especially when it would decide not to let you climb a ledge - but man was it good.

These two are the only Liscenced based modern videogames this generation I'll ever need.

Lol, how ironic. I saw the thread title and came in to bring up Alice in Wonderland DS. I guess the OP has already taken care of that

DBZ: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 & 3 for Wii make surprisingly excellent use of motion controls, making them superior to the PS3 versions in my opinion.

The Naruto: Clash of Ninja games (any of them) are also very good fighters, although the motion controls suck in that series, so you'll want to stick to GameCube or Classic Controllers.

Ash: Professor Oak, how's your Bulbasaur?
Prof. Oak: Oh, it only hurts when I sit.
...
Prof. Oak: It's only Chansey if Krabby won't let go. Bye, now.
Ash: I don't think I'm going to call him anymore.
