The "Superman 64" of 3DS.....

Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters is an obviously rushed mess of a 3DS title. Graphics wise, the game is comparable to a GameBoy Advance title. Muddy and 2 - dimensional, this side scroller could have been on the GBA and no one would have known different. The 3D effects in the game are horrible and much of the game does not even utilize 3D, meaning that with the slider turned up all the way, the game looks no different than with the slider all the way down. Why this game was even made for 3DS & priced at full retail of 39.99 is a mystery to this reviewer.

The Gameplay is just as bad if not worse. Slow and prodding movement, terrible hit detection. Moving Hal around feels like when you're having a nightmare and your trying to flee on foot and the ground feels like sand or mud, you can't get away fast enough, much like you can't take this atrocity out of your 3DS card slot fast enough.
I played this game for 5 painful hours and quickly placed it back into the Gamefly sleeve and sent it back, all within about 12 hours total.

The worst part about this, is that I really, really wanted to like it, I even played it alot longer to give it the benefit of the doubt and see if the game would get better.... it does'nt. Avoid this game at all costs and wait for something on 3DS that was'nt rushed out the door to meet movie release deadlines. If you want something fun to play in your 3DS, just wait for Ocarina of Time to come out. You've been warned, whoever gave this game a 10 is probably a developer of the game or one of their family members....yes, it's that bad.
