Budget title, very linear, short but fun with local co-op

Summary: I wasn't a fan of the movie at all with Ryan Reynolds. Movie was just plain boring and if it wasn't for the awesome Sinestro, I would have walked out of the theater midway. However, I bought the game solely because my kid is a big fan of Green Lantern and we had a lot of fun playing this game together and that is all I ask for when playing games with my kid - that he enjoys it and unlike that abysmal garbage of a movie, this game was actually fun.
Summary: It's OK. A decent movie tie-in game. If you are a die-hard fan of the Green Lantern, you will ove this game. If not, it just feels like a movie tie-in game that the studio farted out hoping to draw in more fanfare dollar. Even at that, the game is much better than the movie was.
Summary: They liked the game, but it didn't let them go very far. I'm not a gamer, but it seems to me that if I pay that much for a game, it should let me go all the way to the finish. The graphics were great, I just wish there was more...
Summary: This grame has grat sound and 3D features. Overall the game is good however some images can be repetitive. The 3-D option makes the colors vivid and does contribute to the visual presentation, though the graphics are fine without 3-D augmentation.
Summary: This game is not that bad. It is filled with action to keep you involved in the game. The graphics are not as good as they could be and the game can be very repetitive. I am almost done with this game and it has not been a waste of time. I like adding games like this to play every now and then vs. all sports and shooter games (which are most games in the PS3 market).
Summary: This game is good. It took 5 days to platinum playing a few hours a night. I found it very repetitive though...one map to the next fighting the same old villains. A lot of people complain about the farming at the end...I didn't have that problem. My solution to make this enjoyable is play on normal through chapter 3 or 4. I was then comfortable with the controls and constructs.
Summary: I picked this game up for $20.00, and thats what it is, a $20.00 game. Surprisingly it does have really good graphics, but some of the fighting scenes are difficult to see as its played in the distance. Thats the best way I can think of describing it. The campaign is very short, about 6-7hrs and you only need half a brain to beat it, no real thinking involved. Very lenear. Fighting mostly the same enemies over and over.
Summary: While I give this one 3 stars on its overall merit, I would have to say it is definitely 3.5 (or perhaps 4 or better) in the genre of movie tie-ins, which generally stink. This game does quite a few things right while also leaving quite a bit to be desired. For me, it provided a mostly fun diversion while it lasted. Gameplay: Obviously very influenced by God of War(right down to the grunts and yells during combos), the buton-mashing gameplay is overall well done.
