Well, it’s almost the summer, and that means it’s time to start hyping up yet another Comic Book Movie Tie In Videogame. There’s quite a few to keep track of this year, and for once, we have DC throwing its hat in the ring with Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters. Based on what I’m seeing in this trailer, it looks like a dream come true, assuming that your dreams involve a digitized Ryan Reynolds wearing a skin-tight, neon green while bodysuit traveling through space to beat up robots and aliens with fantastical weaponry.
And I know that sounds amazing, but honestly, it looks a lot like most other comic book movie tie-ins: pretty underwhelming. I had flashbacks to those awful Iron Man games. Granted, he does use a bright green F14 fighter jet as a projectile weapon at one point, so we can hold out some hope. Anyway, hit the jump for the trailer and see for yourself.
