If people were confused why anyone thought it was necessary to make a feature film based on Milton Bradley's Battleship, then, then they would have been downright confuzzled by the notion that said film should also have a videogame adaptation. But it happened; and it did.

To Accompany Universal Pictures' 2012 movie Battleship, Activision's Battleship: The Videogame can now be found in Australian stores for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
BATTLESHIP follows elite demolitions specialist Cole Mathis as he clashes against an aquatic-based extraterrestrial peril in the sand and sea of the beautiful Hawaiian archipelago. Trapped in a veritable communications dead zone, Mathis must command the U.S. Navy fleet in a “siege on the sea,” while simultaneously rallying the troops on land for a terrifying “war on the shore.”
Intrepid reviewer Dave Kozicki trudged through this one for AusGamers and you find out his thoughts in this review.

Reminds me of Death from Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey.."You have sunk my Battleship!"

Regarding the first paragraph, the chronicles of ridd*** game was one of the best I ever played. ;)

Damn you Nerfy! That was one hell of a game.

I stand corrected, though technically it isn't a movie tie-in, it just features Ridd*** (and Dave heads for the hills with his "Get out of Jail free" card intact)

Fair enough, I was going to mention Star Wars as well, but the good ones are so far away from the content of the movies that it felt like a cheap shot. ;)

Ridd*** was released around the same time as the second movie, it was definitely a tie in.

Butcher Bay was great, but def not a movie game. 007: Everything or Nothing and Westwood's Bladerunner were also great imo, but same deal.

The SNES era star wars games are the only film games that I can recall being genuinely good, but of course, they weren't rushed to release alongside their movies.

I enjoyed the movie, I thought it was fun action movie; it doesn't take itself too seriously.
