As you may know movie based game usually are not up to gameplay standards. But surprisingly Green lantern on Xbox 360 is pretty good. The controlls are fine. The gameplay mechanics are smooth and responsive. My friend new to Xbox also likes the game. As a fanatic of FPS gonre I liked the change. It played fairly well.

Being a huge fan of the Green Lantern series for many years, I looked forward to this game. Sadly in the end it was just another movie tie-in game that lets you down. The graphics were surprisingly good, as was the voice acting and and the fighting style for Hal was not bad either. However the game was stuck way to heavily on rails. Almost the entire game consists of fighting a group of enemies, then moving on to the next island of enemies. There was no real flow to the fighting. Each group is isolated on it's own island. Only having 10 levels to level up your Hal isn't that great and having the 2nd player be restricted to only what Hal knows just seemed like a serious waste of Player 2. My daughter and I finished the game in just a few hours then went back and tried it on the hardest difficulty and there was absolutely no difference. However after saying all that, if I found this game in a bargain bin for cheap, I would really consider picking it up. While it wasn't the best game I ever played, it should be considered a nice bargain bin gem eventually.
I am enjoying the game. It has some nice sceens and the GL of sector 2814 is pretty true to the comicbook. The manhunters and other GL Corps members are fun to watch. I gave the game a 7 for contant and play.
