Superhero game-conversions would be almost universally reviled if it wasn’t for titles like Transformers: War for Cybertron and Batman: Arkham Asylum (I’ll also throw in a vote for Matrix: The Path of Neo). But for every Batman, we’re given ten Thors. On June 7th (ten days before the movie), Warner Bro’s release their latest movie-game tie-in with Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters.
Developers Griptonite Games also gave us Spiderman: Shattered Dimensions, a title that halted the shocking decline of the Spiderman series with its inventive and well thought out gameplay. The crazy nature of the ring’s powers in the hands of these guys could set it well above the standard offerings of he movie-game genre… the problem I foresee is that Spiderman wasn’t released to a movie’s schedule which may have allowed the developers to express their vision with greater clarity: and with the woeful Iron Man 2 under their belt this may not be a team that can handle working to a deadline.

In brightest day, in blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight
Let those who worship evil’s might,
Beware my power… Green Lantern’s light!
