"In brightest day, in blackest night..."
A solemn, masked hero floats above the Earth. In the darkness of space, his only light comes from the emerald green glow of a powerful ring. This is the memorable image that greets you as you start an incredible journey into Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters on PlayStation 3.
Set within the same universe as the Green Lantern movie, Rise of the Manhunters instantly impresses with slick cutscenes introducing the superheroics of this DC Comics icon. These animated sequences complement the sharp and well-animated in-game visuals as the spectacular scenery and backgrounds create an epic feel to this grand space opera. And it's a stunning sight to behold if you play using a stereoscopic 3D compatible TV.
Shining just as brightly as the graphics are the excellent voice acting and booming soundtrack, creating an intense atmosphere and genuine sense of urgency to the missions. Rise of the Manhunters is an exciting affair where every action is dramatic, whether it's the explosive crackle of green energy from the Green Lantern's Power Ring or the constant attacks of the mechanical Manhunter menace.
Want to shed even more light on our emerald hero? Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters also comes with trailers to the motion picture, and animated movie Green Lantern: Emerald Knights. Take a look and let them be your guiding light to the brilliant world of DC Comics' dazzling hero.
The universe is in your hands
The Green Lantern's Power Ring is one of the most potent weapons in the universe - and now you command it in Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters on PlayStation 3. Tasked with protecting the universe alongside the fearless Green Lantern Corps, you control gifted yet cocky test pilot Hal Jordan, who's been thrown into a war against a corrupt android race called the Manhunters. You must survive 10 challenging levels against this vengeful force using the power of your Ring, which can create a variety of hard light weapons.
Don't worry if you're a little green when it comes to superhero experience. There are three difficulty levels to choose from to match your ability, with the chance to lower the difficulty setting during the game if you're finding a particular section too tough. Tutorials and on-screen hints also offer handy advice if you're uncertain about your next objective.
Engaging and action-packed, Rise of the Manhunters fires you into an entertaining adventure that makes you feel as powerful as the emerald knight himself. Your attacks can range from energy swords and giant fists, to baseball bats and mechanical armour, with many upgrades and power-ups available. Because button mashing is not the style of a Green Lantern, you can chain together punishing combos and create your own fighting style to destroy your evil opposition.
With finishing moves, brain-teasing puzzles, spectacular boss battles and flying levels where you can change into a blazing fighter jet, Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters is an enthralling experience which makes you feel as super as the comic book hero.
Master the ring together
Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters on PlayStation 3 makes sure that there's no need for your friends to be green with envy while you save the universe. This is one epic space adventure where a second offline player can drop in and drop out whenever they want for a super team up.
While one of you controls humanity's first Green Lantern, Hal Jordan, a friend can step into the emerald boots of arrogant mentor Sinestro and fight evil alongside you. The game's varied combat system makes co-op play a joy as you set each other up for combos and combine attacks using your Power Rings' amazing hard light weapons.
Smashing the Manhunters together is great fun and adds a whole new level of enjoyment to the game. Do you both have the willpower to use the Power Rings and battle through 10 intense stages of superhero action?
