    To be fair and transparent, I only played this game for about an hour. But, by God, was that hour terrible. The 3d made the frame rate drop very noticeably, and the graphics weren't very good when operating at full frame rate speed. The gameplay consists of button mashing ONE button. This was an utter waste of money.

    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.

    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
    This game is not the greatest game out there.

    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.

    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.

  1. 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]

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

    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.
