** The UsefulNotes/NintendoEntertainmentSystem version of ''Wacky Races'', developed and published by Atlus is quite an enjoyable surprise. It's a 2D platformer where you play as Muttley serving as the VillainProtagonist and help win the race for Dastardly. The music is quite catchy and the bosses are the other ten Wacky Racers. The player can choose which area to go to first and clear three to four levels, then they can choose the next area on the World Map.

* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' did a weird twist on this. On the website, there is a game based on the ShowWithinAShow ''VideoGame/Stinkoman20X6''. It actually manages to be a pretty decent ([[NintendoHard and also very evil]]) platformer (although the creators refuse to update with Level 10).

* ''[[https://www.mariowiki.com/Monopoly_Gamer Monopoly Gamer]]'' is more than just a SuperMario-themed ''BoardGame/{{Monopoly}}'' reskin, but rather, a new way to play the classic board game. New rules, inspired by ''Mario'', help to speed up the game by placing an emphasis on earning points by collecting coins, claiming property, and defeating bosses (yes, this is a board game with ''boss battles''). The introduction of bosses also addresses one of the most common criticisms with ''Monopoly'': the game doesn't end when all other players run out of money (which could take forever), but rather, once the FinalBoss Bowser is defeated. Money is also not the main determining factor in winning, but rather, points earned from coins collected, bosses defeated, and property collected are tallied.

** The 2004 game was created by Volition, the same developers of ''VideoGame/RedFaction'' and ''VideoGame/SaintsRow''. In fact, The Punisher is on the same engine as the Saints Row series, and it shows. Like the gameplay of Saints Row 1 and 2 but also want to torture people and brutally kill them? Look no further!

* ''Anime/SwordArtOnline: Hollow Fragment'' is a surprisingly enjoyable action-RPG based on the anime series, featuring deep mechanics and an interesting WhatIf story that provides the basis of a series of AlternateContinuity games, the Vita version's BlindIdiotTranslation and PS4 port's performance issues notwithstanding.

* EA's ''VideoGame/LordOfTheRingsTheTwoTowers'' and ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings: The Return Of The King'' were very popular and well-received for their top-notch hack-and-slash gameplay and faithfulness to capturing the feeling of the films, due in no small part to getting pretty much the entire cast to voice their characters and using Howard Shore's [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic epic score]].
** As were the ''Battle for Middle-Earth'' releases.

* TheLordOfTheRings film trilogy has garnered a lot of licensed games, several of which were top-notch in their genre.

** As were the ''Battle ''The Battle for Middle-Earth'' releases.was a very good RTS with an EvenBetterSequal featuring 6 distinct factions, elaborate base-building mechanics, a large roster of heroes, very mechanically detailed units with lots of upgrade options, a large array of special powers to spice things up (different between factions), custom hero creation, a lavish campaign, and a TotalWar style conquest mode.

* ''VideoGame/DextersLaboratoryDeesasterStrikes'' for the Game Boy Advance has good controls, good level structure, a pretty solid soundtrack, and quality respect to the source material (It's definitely like you're playing an episode in [[WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory the cartoon]]) make ''Deesaster Strikes'' a pretty decent game overall. It has certainly fared a lot better than other Cartoon Network-based licensed games at the time.

** There are also {{Lego}} games made before these, which are also well-liked by the people who played them. Among the most well-known are ''VideoGame/LegoRacers'', ''VideoGame/LegoIsland'', and ''VideoGame/RockRaiders''. There is a side effect to the people who loved these, however; if you loved them, chances are you hate the licensed ones mentioned above, as many complain they are [[ItsTheSameSoItSucks too similar]] to each other, so they get excited whenever a non-licensed one is announced.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}: VideoGame/DawnOfWar'' was considered a generally fun RealTimeStrategy game and was well received by the gaming press. The sequel looks to be pretty good as well.
