The PC Games Based on Films We Love

We’ve all got a PC, so let’s put them to good use.

We all have films that we can watch time and time again, that just never seem to get boring. Whether it's a Disney film that you can sing all of the songs to or a spy film where you can play the bad guy and the good guy word for word, each of us has one. If you've already watched that film a bit too much recently, then you might be looking for ways you can enjoy the familiarity of the story without sticking it on again. Playing a PC game can be so much more immersive than watching a film, so getting stuck into one of these titles could be exactly the solution you've been looking for. So, without further ado, here are some brilliant PC games that are based on films that we just can't get enough of.

Aladdin's Wishes
Aladdin was an absolute classic Disney film. Anyone that didn't adore Robin Williams as the genie was clearly watching it wrong, or something. With the catchiest sing-along songs and a story based on an incredible tale from the Arabian Nights. It is no surprise then that there have been plenty of game developers who've taken inspiration from Disney's rendition of the tale. One studio that definitely had more than one viewing of the film was Real Time Gaming. This studio is the creator of the online slot game Aladdin's Wishes. Jasmine and Genie appear alongside Aladdin in the game, with Aladdin's face symbolizing a win. The reels are made up of exotic pottery, jewels, and even a swinging monkey. The magic lamp is what you really want to land on though, three of these triggers the Aladdin's Wishes feature, allowing the player to choose from five lamps, with the possibility to win 25 free games or a multiplier on prizes. For those who are used to slot games, this one will be incredibly simple to pick up. For those who are beginners when it comes to this genre, it's worth checking out the best places to play. At they have independently reviewed loads of online casinos that provide this slot game. There is lots of information on who provides the best bonuses for new players too, so even though this game has a great RTP ratio of 95%, you could still make your money stretch further.

Project 007
Here at, we are big fans of the James Bond films, so much so that we've already covered the history of the PC games based on them. However, very recently a new project came about to create a brand new James Bond PC game. Currently, the title is Project 007 and they're actively recruiting people to help out. Whilst this does mean you can't actually play the game yet, the good news is that you can watch a teaser for it at The developers, IO Interactive, have made it very clear that this game will not just be a rehashing of a James Bond story that is already out there, but rather a completely new tale. If you're more of a purist and want to play through a James Bond game that stays true to the film and books then 007 Quantum of Solace comes highly recommended. This game is based on both Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale. It takes a first-person shooter style, allowing you to play as the man himself. What could be better?

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
There have been a whole host of Harry Potter games, thanks to the huge number of films they've got to go on! Sometimes though, the original really is the best. Though the budget was smaller for the first Harry Potter film, there was something charming about the naivety of the actors and the general feeling of awe that oozed from every scene. Perhaps because of the brilliance of the film, or perhaps because there wasn't a formula to play to yet, the first video game based on the Philosopher's Stone, was genuinely brilliant. With graphics that at the time seemed incredible, but looking at them now seem dangerously close to retro, this one is a blast from the past. You take the role of Harry, of course, and spend most of your time sneaking around the castle trying not to get caught by teachers as you get up to magic and mischief. When you're not up to no good, you're usually careering around on your broom. It's a brilliant fun game that really has stood the test of time.
