PS3 Review - Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters (ATemporaryDistraction.com)

ATemporaryDistraction.com: "While ‘Rise of the Manhunters’ might be the official subtitle for Warner Brothers’ latest big summer movie tie-in game, perhaps a more fitting name would’ve been ‘Green Lantern: God of War’. The game drapes its story on the foundation and mechanics laid out by Sony’s popular hack-and-slash action series like a tight-fitting green costume on a chiseled superhero. It’s near impossible not to see the huge debt that Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters owes to God of War, but that’s really not a bad thing at all. In fact, Green Lantern throws in a wealth of creative, cool and incredibly fun ideas, using Hal Jordan’s box of superpowered tricks to their full potential and managing to be a shockingly enjoyable tie-in game."

4 out of 5... i find that hard to believe

I was expecting a cheap, lazy cash-in movie game, but it's actually amazing fun. Like I said in the review, it's nothing revolutionary, but it's a surprisingly great little God of War clone with a creative and incredibly fun combat system.

lol wow. I was actually thinking about picking this game up. I have owned at least 1 movie tie-in game each generation.

SNES - Batman and Robin
PSOne - Die Hard Trilogy
PS2 - 007 games

So I guess this game might be it for the PS3 gen as far as movie tie-ins go.

fair enough..i may try it.. i'll still class it as complete sh!t till proven otherwise though, forgive me for being skeptical but i've played too many [email protected] movie games to have any hope for another.

In other reviews it gets 7 out of 10, so maybe it's really a good game. The only negative they have is that it is really short (5-9h).
