Never really played the game, and I never did read the book, but I can say that the movie was pretty good. It wasn't a huge movie, even in its day, but I enjoyed it enough to put it on my "to get" list. The story is interesting, the plot to the movie was pretty good to me, and the character were nicely put together. After watching the movie, I just want to sit down with the book and learn more about the back-story. Overall, I give it an 8/10, with loss of point attributed to it being good, but not the best.
