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. 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.
Playing as gifted pilot Hal Jordan -- the first human Green Lantern -- gamers create an arsenal of ring constructs and take flight in outer space and beyond to restore intergalactic order. Use the Power Ring to build an array of weapons from green energy to defeat the Manhunters -- an evil android race bent on destroying the Green Lantern Corps.

- Team Up and Battle Together - Gamers will have the ability to team-up and battle the Manhunters in seamless drop-in/dropout local co-op gameplay as Hal Jordan or Sinestro.
- Take Flight - Soaring across the universe in intergalactic fl ight, gamers will dodge past asteroids and blast through planets while destroying armies of Manhunters.
- Green Lantern - Rise of the Manhunters for Xbox and PS3 includes the likenesses and voice talent of Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan.

The gameplay is fun. You have your standard and heavy attacks, blocks, dodges but then you also have an array of constructs you acquire and unlock as you go through the game. There is enough variety in my opinion to give you the feel of being a Green Lantern using its imagination to create weapons. The controls are easy to learn as well so you dive straight in.
The coop multiplayer is a good feature and the occasional flying episodes are a good change of pace (although those controls were a little harder to get used to).
The graphics are good, although I haven't experienced them in 3D. Some of the facial animations seems a bit 'creepy' (for lack of a better term) due to the skin textures feeling a bit off and some of the facial movements looking off as well.
It goes into some of the lore of the game, including some of the recent aspects (I won't say what as they would be spoilers).
The biggest downside to this game, to the point where I thought why did I bother buying it, is that I completed it in approximately six hours. Albeit I was playing on easy but I managed to unlock most of the upgrades and collect pretty much all the hidden items. I feel being able to complete this game in a evening and a short morning play session is an extreme diapointment. Combine this with the fact it costs the same as games that can be about 10x longer I really don't think it is worth getting it. For me there is little replay value. As I mentioned I unlocked the majority of the upgrades so there isn't a push to try out the stuff I skipped.Read more ›
Because of the rep movie games have, and the fact that not much was shown of the game nor were there any reviews that I saw before I played it, I was worried that GL would follow the trend and not be very good. However I was very pleasantly surprised to find that Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters is a very fun experience, and something all Green Lantern fans should play.
It was very cool to be playing a game and hear all these references to GL lore mentioned, such as yellow Fear energy, violet Love energy, and you can even find hidden blue meteorites that contain Hope energy that raise your health meter. Not to mention visiting Zamaron, home of the Star Sapphires and Biot, home of the Manhunters. The gameplay is very solid too. Dare I say that it reminded me of God of War in some ways? You have a light fast attack, and a heavy attack that can be used together to form combos, and theres also a grab move which can be used to throw enemies or spin them around and then slam them into the ground. An evade move is mapped to the right analogue stick also, with a dash-attack move on R1, and a shield on L1. Then you have your special construct moves which use up your ring energy meter. These are unlocked as you progress through the game and can be mapped to any of the face buttons while holding either L2 or R2, giving you a max of 8 special construct moves that can be used. There are other constructs too, so its up to you to decide which ones you want mapped to the buttons. The constructs include a giant hammer, a baseball bat that can knock enemy projectiles back, a jet plane and a mech suit! All very cool and fun to use.Read more ›
With a lacklustre storyline it's up to graphics, level design and gameplay to make up some of the ground. Graphically, `Green Lantern' is not an ugly game, but there are so many better examples out there. Although the backgrounds look impressive, the characters themselves are a little underdone. Perhaps the weakest element of the game is the level design. The levels all feel like the same thing over and over again as you have to fight hordes of enemies on a planet with a different colour palate. There are some hidden extras to be found if you go off path, but these are few and far between.
Linear level design is not always a game breaker if the game you are playing is actually good fun, `Green Lantern' borders on not being so. The fighting is incredibly generic and requires you smack buttons until the enemy dies. One nice touch is the different powers the ring can produce. You can map up to eight of these onto the d-pad and produce some amusing combos including a Gatling gun, giant robot and a hammer. Even with this variety of weaponry, the melee combat becomes increasingly samey throughout so that the last hour becomes a chore. On a positive note, I did manage to complete the game as it was easy enough to pick up and play.Read more ›
