Almost every object is their to be thrown or destroyed.

6. Rocky Legends (2003): This game is based on the first 4 Rocky films and has movie clips throughout. Rocky has to fight Apollo, Mr. T and the Russian giant. Train in the meat locker with Rocky and then fight for the Title. The graphics are lame but the sound effects and the game play are outstanding. I really like the whole story behind The Rocky movies.

7. Rambo (1985): This game is loosely based on the Rambo films. The cut scenes are based on the Rambo film but the levels and game play are completely made for the game. You are a one man army loaded with skills, heart and oh yeah. weapons ranging from bazookas to bow and arrows. I am not a wrestling fan but, I am really hooked on this game.

8. Jurassic Park (1993): This film has had many games made from it including the original arcade version. You must escape dinosaurs while driving in a car. It's Pole Position meets Godzilla in this high stakes race to save your life. Cut scenes direct from the film are featured in this game as well.

9. Saw 2: Flesh and Blood (2010): This game has you stuck with others in a house filled with traps that you must escape from or die, just like the film. The game has Jigsaw and other extras made just for the game that will make you jump. It's an M rated video game because of the gore and violence especially if you get caught in a death trap set by Jigsaw.

10. Robocop (1989): In this game, your character is half man and half machine. You drive in a high tech car and shoot hi tech weaponry. Beat bad guys down and keep the city clean. The game does not have great graphics but it's very fun and stays true to the Robocop plot.
