Warner Bros has just confirmed the previously tentative summer release window for Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters by stating that the game will ship in the UK on June 10th 2011.

Available in old-skool anaglyphic 3D with glasses that ship with the boxed product and stereoscopic 3D for all those with the necessary kit, players will take on the role of Hal Jordan, the first human Green Lantern, and face-off against the Manhunters - an evil android race hell bent on destroying the Green Lantern Corps.

The action-adventure title will also feature seamless drop-in/drop-out local co-op gameplay with Hal Jordan - including the likenesses and the voice talent of Ryan Reynolds - and Sinestro at the helm of the action.

Featuring intergalactic missions including intergalactic flight and the chance to master the Green Lantern Power Ring and conjure "hard-light" constructs, offering "an endless number of combinations," Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters is heading to North America on June 7th and Europe on June 10th.

I gotta say I think this game might be alright - read a little preview on it from ign. - said it wasn't as bad as they thought it was going to be. Defiantly won't pay full price for it, but I might pick up when it's a bit cheaper.

Design meeting: "We got the rights to make the green lantern game, so from here on out, quality doesn't matter...we need a gimmick and big letters on the box art, oh and something that reacts and does stuff when you push buttons on the controller. Get to work."

Well, it can't be any worse than the Incredible Hulk tie-in, so I may as well buy it...

@ 19 - The first movie or Incredible Hulk? The second tie in was WAY better than the first mainly b/c it wasn't linear. It was a sandbx game like Hulk: Ultimate Destruction which is still IMO one of the best "feel like a Marvel character" game.

Is it just me or does Ryan Reynolds on the cover art look like a muscular version of Ben Aflack? Oh and also much rather see Reynolds in true movie of Deadpool instead of Green Lantern. That would be a game worth buying.

The fact it doesn't run along the same story as the movie what with the Manhunter element means it could be ok and turn out being a fairly fun if limited action adventure title like Wolverine was.

@20 - yeah, The Incredible Hulk tie-in (we shall not speak of The Hulk). It was okay I suppose, but with me playing Just Cause 2 and Prototype before I picked it up... not much comparison imo.

@ 24 - I hear ya. The Incredible Hulk was missing a few key things that made Ultimate Destruction great but it was playable. I still need to get on Just Cause 2 but I loved Prototype except for the damage from enemies. Even on easy, if you got swarmed it was a detriment to your life bar. I like feeling super when I'm portrayed as (dun dun dunnn) Super powered.

I'd like to add, The Green Lantern is also the Xbox exclusive character in Mortal Kombat 9. Or at least the video I've seen shows him as such. It could well have been an elaborate hoax, but the WB tie-up is too convenient.

Ha! All the good stuff you guys in the UK get jipped out of and its actually news that you're going to get a mediocre movie tie-in game. I'd be pissed if I were among you guys.
