Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters :: Wii Game Review

Based off of a not-so impressive movie, Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters for the Wii doesn't have much going for it. Read our game review for more details.

Rise of the Manhunters

The plot for the game is different than the story in the movie. You play as Hal Jordan, the newest member of the intergalactic police force known as the Green Lantern Corps. However, before the Guardians created the Green Lanterns, they used robots called Manhunters. Unfortunately, the Manhunters have gone haywire and are now out to destroy the universe and it is up to Hal to stop them!

Early on, it is fun to go from one side of the screen to the next and beat up everything in your way with your power ring. However, besides this, there is not much else to the game. The Green Lantern power rings can create anything out of green light. In the game, you need to scan items, such as missiles, in order to create them. Even if you scan early on, however, you still need to wait until you unlock the power later on in the game, which is super annoying. Also annoying is the fact that the game is designed so that you have to return to previous levels in order to scan items to use with newly unlocked powers.

You earn experience points for defeating enemies and can upgrade your different attacks. However, the basicring blast ability is so powerful that, if you fully upgrade it, you can pretty much beat the game without unlocking or scanning for new powers, making the game too easy and not that interesting.

Wii Vs. 3D

It seems like the Wii and 3DS version of this game is exactly the same, down to the graphics, which obviously looks better on the smaller and 3D enabled 3DS screen. The graphics are ok, being colorful and cartoony, but there is no voice acting, just text to read. While the game is playable and is free of major bugs, only younger Green Lantern fans will find the whole game enjoyable.
