  • Excerpt: Though the Nintendo DS is cooling off in the shadow of its successor, we’re still getting the occasional trickle of notable titles for the aging hardware. WayForward (Batman: The Brave and the Bold) has taken up the mantle of one of Marvel’s greatest super heroes, but does the God of Thunder wisely harness the power of the dual-screen? Thor: God of Thunder for DS takes a slight detour in terms of its connection to the movie currently in theaters.

Thor: God of Thunder (DS) Review

411mania.com
20 May 2011
  • Excerpt: The latest blockbuster to hit the big screen is “Thor” and by now you have probably guessed that there is a video game of the movie. Thor the game, like most other games these days, is available across all the big platforms, but this review will be focusing on the Nintendo DS version. Knowing how bad some of these movie tied in games are, I was not giving it much hope, but I decided to keep an open mind about things, after all, things can change right?

Thor: God Of Thunder

AV Club
9 May 2011
  • Excerpt: WayForward is the Amish community of game makers, willfully using the modes, aesthetics, and play of ye olde school in its myriad 2-D adventures. The developer’s games Contra 4 and Shantae: Risky’s Revenge might as well have been made in 1995, they’re so exact in their adherence to that era of design. So too is the company’s self-described love letter to the Nintendo DS, Thor: God Of Thunder .

Ho! A mighty movie tie-in that doth not suck

GamesRadar
6 May 2011
  • Conclusion: I'd like to end by thanking WayForward for not phoning this one in. It's a very capable 2D studio, responsible for Contra 4, A Boy and His Blob and (another licensed game that had no business being good) Batman: The Brave and the Bold. We salute WayForward's efforts here; in other hands, this could have been every bit as uninteresting as the prior Sega-published Marvel games.
  • Pros: Fun, rewarding combat, Runes allow for customization, A 2D love letter to the SNES days
  • Cons: Can still become monotonous, Can still become monotonous, Can still becozzzzzzzz

  • Summary: WayForward set out to push the DS to its limit, and by Odin's beard, it succeeded with thunderous applause. Your jaw will drop from WayForward's pixel-mastery and lush 2D art design, especially the incredible sense of scale during boss battles, and longtime fans of the brawler genre will rejoice in its reverence towards the classics.
