    About time this got dumped.

    It's essentially the same thing as the Griptonite Spidey games....same formula. So if you liked them, you will like this.

    You'll want to bump up the brightness level for this game, most levels are very dark.

    Its quite shit indeed, Griptonite are a one trick pony. I had a lot of respect for them at one point but they just turn out bad games now.

    I understand they have little time and resources to work from and have to do licensed games to make it but so do WayForward and while Thor DS was nothing special, it was clear they did what they can to make sure it wasn't like other licensed games.

    I think he was reffering to the fact that this game has been out for a while, I think it came out about the 7th of June. It seem though the dumping of games on the DS has slowed down since the 3DS's release.

    Won't defend Griptonite, as I agree, they've kinda run those Spidey mechanics into the ground with countless other DS games. But I have to say, Thor DS was a total disappointment for me. It was pretty but mind-numbingly repetitive.

    I'll check this out because, one, I love Green Lantern, and well, I'm curious to see what Griptonite did with this thing. If it's at least as good as the last couple of Spidey games, I'll be content.

    If you want a Green Lantern game, play Super Scribblenauts and add the adjective Green to every object you make.

    Among the Griptonvania games, Shattered Dimensions is the best so far. The constructs look cool though I prefer solid combat system of the spidey games.
