    Unsure about this game, Griptonite are working on the Nintendo ones and their games of late have been ok to poor.

    Terrible cover, what was wrong with the movie poster?

    Do they realize that Martian Manhunter is a Super Hero of the DC Universe? Rise of the Manhunters just makes me think bad things of this game.

    The Manhunters don't have that much to do with the Martian Manhunter. They are robots who where created by the Guardians of the Universe prior to them starting the Green lantern Corps.

    This isn't a game of the movie, is it?
    Just a game cashing in on the new movie, with a different storyline altogether.

    Its what they do now, Sega did the same with Thor, Captain America and Iron man 2.

    In theory it would make for better games (like Spider-Man 2 wasn't anything like the film) but in these cases...

    Ugh. Doesn't even look like worth a try.

    It's a shame they couldn't have made a watered down version for the wii, similar to how they did with Spider-man web of shadows. it lacked the polish and shine of the 360/PS3 versions, but was the same game.

    I was really going to download this, but it looks like it was made to target infants who can barely hold a controller. This is pretty much in line with the new Spiderman TV shows where Doc Ock has a head shaped like a fucking hexagon, and Batman Brave and the Bold where Batman sounds like he's a damn teenager and robin a 4yo.

    Overall as far as games go this looks like a rehash of Batman Brave and the Bold also on Wii, typical combo bullshit with little variance between games, same types of combos just overlays, different bosses and story lines that look like they were tossed together.

    It would be neat if for once they got someone onboard the actual comic studio to work on the plot and such for the game, I'm sure it would help a lot in coordinating all efforts and producing a game that is actually good.

    That is actually of the 3DS version which appears to be an "upgraded" port of the DS one. Griptonite have gone downhill so much.
