    Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters on 3DS is a bit on the easy side, and there are some shortcomings such as occasional slowdown, especially within combat. If you're a fan of Metroid-style exploration, though, or the Green Lantern series itself, and are prepared to accept some flaws, this is not a bad buy.

    Even if you do decide to trudge through to completion, the game is far too easy to complete, so the scope of the Green Lantern's inventive green energy construct power is yet to make a successful transition to video game land.

    There are alternative costumes to unlock, the comic cutscenes are interesting, and I like the interpretation of Hal Jordan, but Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters is just a bad game thanks to the slow gameplay.

    For a 3D game, this really lacks depth. [Aug 2011, p.89]

    Do you pine for a game where it takes the best part of an afternoon to kill an enemy? Then this is the uninspired film tie-in for you! [July 2011, p.64]
  6. Just feels like an unfinished mess that's been rushed to the shops in time for the release of the movie it's based on. [Aug 2011, p.99]

    This game looks bad, plays bad, feels bad, and is just bad. Its a shameful cash-in that hurts the reputation licensed titles have been building up. Go and play The Amazing Spider-Man if you want a good super hero game. Full Review »

    This game is not the greatest game out there. Though the graphics are passable for a new console, the frame-rate drops to a snail's pace if there are more than one or two characters on screen. if you like button mashing games then this might be worth considering but it does lend credence to the whole "movie tie-in games usually suck."

    IF (and this is a BIG if) the new firmware update and patching of games allows it to be patched so that it isn't such a slug, there may be hope because it isn't altogether a terrible game that you should completely avoid... but that IS a biiiiiig "IF" and delving into Griptonite's track record, that "if" seems less likely to happen. frankly, i'm surprised that Nintendo signed off on this game at all because of the woeful bugs that make this game nearly unplayable. seriously, Griptonite, what the f*** is wrong with you? do you not know how to build a game within a system's specifications? I purchased this on sale for $15 and i still think i paid too much for it. Shame, Griptonite, Shame on you... YOU SHOULD KNOW BETTER BY NOW.

    Licensed garbage concurrent with everything that Griptonite has made. A waste of time and money. You better of spending it on another Nintendo re-release than wasting money on anything this company does. Full Review »
