www.empireonline.com After that, go to the Game and Watch section beneath and enjoy about 15 minutes worth of some interesting points and mostly good humoured passages. Still, any particular strike your mind? Mine, from that list, would have to be: - World of Warcraft (providing they had that crowd pleaser in :0wned: ) - Zelda: Ocraina of Time - Because it just should. - Metal Gear Solid - Need a good lunge at the military and a good secret service film. - Homeworld - Like Star Wars. Hopefully more Episodes 4 - 6 and not 1 - 3. - Wipeout - Speeding fines at 2000km/h...blowing each other up at 2000km/h...on the moon...in craters.....who needs a plot, eh??

Indeed, Zelda should be made into a movie.

However, It seems that all game-based movies turn out to be over-rated or just fucky-fucky.

Not all, I'm sure somewhere that has been at least one decent game - film conversion. I mean where the hell could they go wrong, with say Zelda? It has a plot and it finishes, so it should be possible.

They are too easy with it. Also, movies, books, games; they're all different. Something might catch your eye when watching a movie, while it goes unnoticed playing a game. It's not that easy just to throw a game's plot (if it has one) into a movie. Much has got to be corrected. But, I do agree, there has got to be a way to make a good game-to-movie conversion.

EMPIREMovie Treatment: Statham is a shoo-in for the cue-balled killer-for-hire, and 47 doesn't talk much either so it shouldn't tax our Jase's acting chops too much either.

Thought the same, if there should be a Hitman movie, it should star Jason Statham!

Well anyway, EMPIRE is a great magazine, I always buy it. Lovely.
