Best Licensed Video Games


The Top Ten

1 Batman: Arkham City

Fun game

This game is not only the greatest licensed video game of all time and not only one of the best 7th generation video games but it's also one of the best video games of all time I love the boss fight with Mister Freeze, the amazing open world that is like a super prison, a great combat system that makes you feel like Batman, Hugo Strange as an amazing villain and same can be said for Mark Hamill as The Joker, and on top of the great package we have one of the best video game endings of all time with a big surprise with Joker's death.

2 SpongeBob SquarePants: The Battle for Bikini Bottom


An awesome game based off an awesome cartoon. The entire game is almost as good as the platformers that inspired it. So if you haven't heard of it try it. And look at me and tell me you don't like it. - dudesterravensfan

Sure THQ may not exist anymore or be a good video game company like Nintendo or Capcom but this game is one of if not the best THQ and Spongebob game out there sure Creature from the Krusty Krab with the exeptions of the Wii and DS version was a close second but this game is great like Epic Mickey.

3 GoldenEye
4 Batman: Arkham Asylum
5 Spider-Man 2

For a movie tie-in, the developers really took the time to make this game a unique experience. The free roaming gameplay around New York, the mission content not even from the movie (including a strange but fun dungeon created by Mysterio), and the super realistic web slinging system make this game really stand out. When playing this game, I really felt like Spider Man. - Zach808

6 Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
7 The Simpsons Game


8 Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor

I loved the game as much as arkham city and it is one of the greatest games ever as well very similar to lord of the rings and the hobbit which I love.

9 Transformers: Fall of Cybertron

Amazing third person shooter with solid gameplay and a great story, one of the best licenced games and the best transformers game

10 Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion XL

The Newcomers

? Dragon Ball Fighterz
? Cars: Race O Rama

The Contenders

11 Kingdom Hearts

Honest to goodness, it's a great game, let alone a great franchise, however, I can't really call it licensed, due to it not being based off of one specific pre-existing Disney entity. Yeah, it's a crossover, but it's an original story, meaning it can't be licensed.

12 Batman: Arkham Knight
13 The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
14 Star Wars Battlefront II
15 South Park: The Stick of Truth

This is the second best licensed video game of all time whenever you have it RPG and it was made by the creators of south park you know you are in for a great ride and it makes you feel like you are playing an episode of south park so I extremely dig this game and it's now going to be considered as one of the greatest video games of all time even if it came out in 2014.

I liked this game, but I like Fractured But Whole better. BY THE WAY WHY ISN´┐Ż'T THAT GAME ON THIS LIST?!

16 WWE 12
17 Kingdom Hearts II
18 Cars Mater-National Championship

The Greatest Game Ever Made

19 Samurai Jack: The Amulet of Time
20 Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie

The most cruelly forgotten licensed game ever! This game is suspenseful and challenging with, for the most part, great AI! It is in my to 3 favorite licensed games when accounting for a one per franchise rule!

Is good.

21 MLB 2000
22 GoldenEye 007
23 The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay

Awesome great game and the movie was awesome too. They should make more and more games and movies about Riddick. He is cool - Magnolia

24 Toy Story 2
25 DuckTales DuckTales DuckTales is an American animated television series produced by Walt Disney Television Animation. It premiered on September 18, 1987 and ended on November 28, 1990 with a total of four seasons and 100 episodes.
26 The Simpsons: Hit & Run

Why is this so low? This game is fantastic

27 Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage?!
28 X-Men (Arcade Game)
29 NCAA Football 14
30 The Walking Dead: Season One
31 Star Wars: Republic Commando
32 SpongeBob SquarePants the Movie
33 Batman: Arkham Origins
34 Epic Mickey

This game is really good probably one of the best Wii games right next to Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 and Rabbids go home plus Wii Sports.

35 Disney's Planes
36 Cars
37 Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga
38 Shrek the Third


39 Lego Batman: The Videogame
40 Madden NFL 2006
41 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles In Time
42 Transformers: War for Cybertron
43 Dante's Inferno

For what this game is worth, it's a pity they still have yet to make a Dante's Purgatory or Dante's Paradise video game.

44 Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two

Okay I understand that this is very underrated but I really liked the game so much I think that this is a slight better than the original and the ending of Epic Mackey 2 is one of the best in gaming history like as good as ocarina of time and arkham city and I think the gameplay is better in epic mickey 2 as well so it'should one of the best licensed games even if the story is not the best.

It is also a great musical game too.

45 Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3
46 Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny (Gba) Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny (Gba) Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny is an anime television series, a direct sequel to Mobile Suit Gundam SEED by Sunrise and the overall tenth installment in the Gundam franchise.

It's such a shame this game is very underrated. Why? Because it's actually a very fun and easy-to-play fighting game! - PerfectImpulseX
