Lantern Ring Recruits is a MMORPG game released for the Nintendo NeXt; set in the DC universe, the players have the ability to pick and choose the Lantern Corps they want to be recruited by, what abilities they have, what construct weapon they use, and even if they want to wield double the rings at a slight power cost.
Being an MMORPG, it has all the aspects of one: customization, grouping, worldwide participation, as well as options. Story is also an important aspect, as the choices you make will determine your friends and foes in the world, what side you're on, or how you're viewed by the other Corps.
The key word to any Ring Wielder is choice; you can choose what ring to start with, what combat style to use, and what faction you want to align with. Over the course of the story however, you can make various choices to decide your alignment with the different Corps over the years. You can hire yourself out to all the Corps, align with just one, or even go rogue with the ring power and look out for only yourself.
While each Corps has similarities (mainly being Hard-Light Constructs), each has their own primary combat role which can be mixed to a certain variety to determine your position on the field.
|Combat Role||Primary Traits||Primary Stats||Associated Lantern Corps||Description|
||Red Lantern Corps|
||Orange Lantern Corps|
||Green Lantern Corps|
||Blue Lantern Corps|
||Star Sapphire Corps|
If you choose to focus all of your effort into one Lantern Corps, you might end up attracting the attention of the Corps' entity, who (if you have enough experience with the Light) will choose you as its new host, greatly boosting your own power, regardless of combat role.
Becoming an Entity Host greatly boosts the stats associated with your Combat Role (though for the Damage Role it just gives you a 175% stat boost compared to the 300% increase for listed stats and 100% boost for others) and greatly improves the effects and duration of your Lantern Powers. An example would be for the Red Lanterns: if you become host to the Butcher, you gain a great deal of Health and Defense and Rage Plasma burns stick with foes longer and hurt more.
