In terms of its overall look, gameplay, and storyline, Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters is an exceptionally good movie tie-in game. The graphics are fantastic (and, with special glasses included, can be viewed in 3-D on any HDTV); the controls work incredibly smoothly; and there’s a great deal of suspense and mystery worked into the plot. Part of the draw of the Green Lantern character has always been the diversity of his powers –- he can use his ring to create anything. And while you’re obviously limited within the confines of the game, you’re given a pretty broad array of powers to choose from. You’ll earn more as you play, and can cycle between them at any time. Rise of the Manhunters isn’t a truly spectacular game -- the developers could have worked more variety into the missions (far too many involve shutting down teleportation gates) and the robot goons are not the most compelling villains – but it’s a very good game. And frankly, that’s far more than we usually expect from a movie tie-in.
