Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters video: Full Access Playthrough

So, the Green Lantern. A couple of us left the office with the lowest of expectations to see the movie last Friday. Lantern’s a tough property to adapt to screen, the trailer looked silly, and the early reviews treated it as if Ryan Reynolds latest attempt at superheroism would end the comic genre altogether. Not only did no one hate the movie - we all enjoyed the crap out of it! It was like we were seeing a completely different movie as the rest of the critics. We decided to take Green Lantern: Rise of the Something or Others (Manhunters) to see if maybe, just maybe, that too would defy our cynicism. Sometimes you gotta trust your gut... or at least decades of horrible precedent.


Maybe it’s an okay God of War clone when you get to know it, but this was so repetitive in our short time with it, we couldn’t stand it. And neither could the digital Ryan Reynolds. Note to developers: when a character in your own game openly mocks how monotonous the gameplay, maybe you should fix that instead of writing jokey dialogue around it.

    Awesome FAP!

    I love how you guys skipped ahead then just gave up and shut it off.

    Hilarity typically ensues superheroes when the Radar crew is involved

    I thought this game was pretty good, it made for a good rental, I beat it in 6 hours.

    I'm rolling over with laughter at your decision to give up on the game before the first boss battle. "This is still the first level. It's been 25 minutes". HA!

    Green poop! Second FAP of the day, i love these.

    ffffuuuuuuu, I hate this video player so much. Damnit I want to watch the fap in a quality level above "ugly blur".

    Mark Strong was also the villain in Kick-Ass.

    I am still surprised you guys enjoyed the movie. Then again you guys comment on the Difference between Marvel movies and DC movies as the fact that Marvel movies were preocccupied with showing you how the villain gets to that point, mainly being buddies with the hero up until event happens where they go down different roads... Except that that totally happens in Green Lantern with Hammond going evil because his buddy from childhood (Ryan Reynolds) was the more awesome. The thing that was terrible with that movie is just that its Lazy. The script feels disjointed, parts in the beginning and the end are fine but then there's this mishmash of random things. I came out of it thinking I had just seen Daredevil again. Its not the worst out there but its still not very good. Ah wells to each his own and it was a pretty good F.A.P.
  • OneToBoner - June 23, 2011 9:20 p.m.

    Yes! I love these FAPs. I wish you guys wouldn't limit yourselves and just go for an hour.
  • Unoriginal - June 23, 2011 9:18 p.m.

    Sure, hack'n'slashers are repetitive but that was taking repetition to a whole new level. The game looks like it is horribly tiring to play. Love how they just gave up on it in the end xd
  • MonocledYaoGuai - June 23, 2011 9:16 p.m.

    Awesome FAP guys! Also, the Justice Friends show with Green Lantern was just as stupid as you pictured it. In one episode, Sinestro makes a yellow construct bagpipe that fires yellow lasers, and to stop this, Hal fires what I remember to be a green fishing net construct, thus capturing Sinestro. Anyways, it's awesome to see all the Green Lantern stuff, I'm a huge fan.

    I was surprised you guys didn't like the game. I did a review for Front Towards Gamer http://www.fronttowardsgamer.com/2011/06/21/ftg-review-green-lantern-rise-of-the-manhunters-xbox360/ I actually liked the game. And as for repetition, all Hack and slash games have repetition. Even God of War was a bit repetitious at times. I actually enjoyed the game. It is hard to just obtain an idea for the whole game in just the first 20 minutes. Also I wouldn't play the game on easy or normal. Play on Emerald Knight setting. The other two difficulties are a bit too easy.

    Well that was refreshing. I applaud your honesty.

    "New Objective: Kill Enemies" ... Achievement Unlocked: You Killed Enemies Man, I love how you HAD to grab that generator and it didn't tell you, then you HAD to shoot that rock. It's just so intuitive and effortless.
  • philipshaw - June 24, 2011 12:46 p.m.

    Great FAP, I love with all the powers Green Lantern has they came up with a bad GOW clone
  • Yeager1122 - June 24, 2011 4:16 a.m.

    I really liked the part where you killed enemys it was my favorite.
  • NightCrawler_358 - June 24, 2011 3:41 a.m.

    I love Green Lantern, but I personally hated the movie, I couldn't not compare it to the comics constantly. I appreciate people's opinions, but I was honestly surprised when you guys said you liked it. At least we can all agree the game is awful!
  • paganpoet - June 24, 2011 2:06 a.m.

    Usually when FAP and Ryan Reynolds are involved, I have a very different experience than this.
  • ChrisCultista - June 23, 2011 11:24 p.m.

    GOD THAT WAS HORRIBLE!
