Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters
The Manhunters are an android race, originally created by the Guardians of the Universe to serve as the first interstellar police force. The Manhunters became more obsessed with administering punishment than serving justice, forcing the Guardians to dissolve their ranks. The few Manhunters that survived fled into exile and the Guardians founded a new elite police force called the Green Lantern Corps and armed its memebers with specially crafted power rings. Now the Manhunters are back and out for revenge, readying their forces for a war against the Guardians and the Green Lantern Corps. Faced with destruction, the Corps is looking to you as the newest recruit, gifted but cocky test pilot Hal Jordon, to protect peace and preserve justice. Building on the anticipation of Warner Bros.’ feature film Green Lantern, in theaters June 17, 2011, Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters includes the likeness and voice talent of Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan, who is the star of the upcoming motion picture.
Here we are with the video game based on a movie that is based on a comic. Anyway, some recent movie based video games have been decent and it seems that Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters is in that direction as the PS3 and 360 version of the game is a simple brawler and combos will determine what form your ring will become to finish the combo. The DS and 3DS version of the game will be a simple but nice looking side scroller.
