  • Summary: Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters is inspired by the feature film, which brings the enduringly popular DC Comics super hero to the big screen for the first time and which stars Ryan Reynolds in the title role as Hal Jordan, the newest member of the Green Lantern Corps. In the videogame players will utilize over a dozen constructs and take flight across the deepest parts of the Universe to restore intergalactic order by wielding the ultimate weapon: the Green Lantern power ring.

    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. Expand

    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.

    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. Expand

    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. Expand
