Books/Games That Should Be Movies #7

Battle Realms

The Battle Realms game is one of my personall favorites, and...I KNOW, I know! most of you dont play games and dont really care about them, but the tittle sais Books/Games and well I think that going from book to game keeps it from becoming boring. At least for gamers that is. What? you want me out? Well SHUT UP! Im still gonna write this

Story: The plot mainly revolves around Kenji, last heir to the Serpent's Throne. When he returns from exile, Kenji comes across bandits raiding a peasant village. He can choose to either kill the bandits and save the peasants, or, he can side with the bandits and kill the peasants. If he chooses to save the peasants, he will follow the path of the Dragon clan. If he aids the bandits, he will follow the path of the Serpent clan.

In Kenji's Journey, the player may choose which territories he or she wishes to attack first. Taking specific territories might give benefits, and other Zen Masters may join Kenji. Later on, the player can summon these Zen Masters from the Keep.

In the Battle Realms expansion Winter of the Wolf, the player follows the story of Grayback, a wolf miner who started a rebellion to free his fellow wolf clansmen from the clutches of the Lotus and Serpent. In the process, Grayback must defeat the sorceress Yvaine to stop the snow blizzard from killing his clansmen.
(I know you have no idea of the main plot, the review sucks but it was the best i could find without making a personall one)

Why It Should Be A Movie:
Well for starters the storyline is not too large, and extremelly interesting! The world is deep and has a suffice backround storyline, that leaves many to the viewer, or gamer's imagination, without having an immediate effect on the storyline. The storyline itself has twists and turns, and although it is nothing too special or unique keeps the interest to the end. Also with the expansion out, it makes the movie able to be a 2 episode movie, starting with Kenji and then show the events of the Winter Of The Wolf, or vice versa. Anyway, the game has many elements of Asian fantasy (hell of all the clans only the Wolf are not as if they are drawn for a Kung-Fu martial arts or whatever Asian-y like movies) so the movie could be a great combination of martial arts and raw combat as demonstrated by the Wolf Clan. I think that it would be a great Asian movie.
