Summary: Parents need to know that Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters is a sci-fi action game that contains a good deal of fighting (both hand-to-hand and long-range combat), though most of the violence is directed toward robots (and a few living aliens).

Pros: + Drop-in/drop-out co-op adds some meager replayability., + A few creative power-ring constructs.
Cons: - Follows a rote, by-the-numbers game design with repetitive gameplay., ? Why don’t you have a choice of Green Lanterns in co-op? The GL Corps is huge!
Excerpt: Roaming beat ‘em up First, Captain America and now Green Lantern? Dull superhero season is upon us. The problem with being an achievements whore is that you’ll play almost anything. This is compounded when you write reviews for the bummingest gaming site on the internet.
