This month's category is Licensed Games. Please review a game that uses a non gaming licence as its theme - Films, TV, books, comics etc.

Review Qualifications
1. 500 words minimum
2. Ideally contains images (preferably use images from the game’s entry, then from your personal gallery, and external images with appropriate attribution as a last resort)
3. Review must be posted to Video Game Geek during the duration of the contest. Take into account the amount time it might take to get through geekmod. Reviews already on the site will not be accepted!
4. The review can't have been published anywhere (Geek or elsewhere) else before it is submitted to the contest.
5. Must fit within the contest’s category, broadly considered.
6. Winners must wait one contest period (i.e. one month) from their time of winning before submitting another entry.

Please link to your review using the [ thread=][ /thread] geeklink.

There is also a discussion thread which can be found here

The votes have been tallied and my dubious maths double checked and the winners of this month are as follows.

PlayStation.

I just submitted my review of this bomb to geekmod. Cleared.

I watched the "Die Hard" trilogy again so that I could better appreciate all of the opportunities that were missed by this game.

This review is V.I.P., a video game based on a TV show staring Pamela Anderson. What could go wrong?

Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future. H.G. Wells
