Summary: Thor: God Of Thunder takes players through a spectacular, epic-scale original third-person adventure. In the game, Thor battles through the numerous worlds of Norse mythology that span realms ranging from primal worlds of fire and ice to extraordinary planets inhabited by Frost Giants and Trolls to...
Summary: I love Thor, but this is not a videogame worthy of the God of Thunder. I wish the development team that gave us Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2 would come back together and make all the Marvel comic movie games. Because this does not cut it.
Excerpt: High Impact’s effort may copy God of War’s on a basic level, but it fails to succeed at doing justice to it in any way. Sure, you’ve got your basic melee attack, a power attack, a variety of magical attacks, and grapples.
Excerpt: Like the character it's based on, this middling movie adaptation is all brawn and no brains. Lackluster combat, uninspired level design, and an overlong campaign mean this is one of 2011's more un-Thor-tunate releases.

Excerpt: You may draw your own conclusions on Thor: God of Thunder, given it’s a movie tie-in game. It’s hardly a prestigious title to carry, and conjures up some of the worst that gaming has to offer.
Pros: The variety of worlds is interesting., Voice acting from the stars of the film is good.
Cons: Frame rate issues., Game breaking bugs., Frustrating character handling., Enemies can be hard to differentiate., Generally makes you want to throw your controller through the screen.
Conclusion: Wieder eine Film-Versoftung mehr auf dem Markt, die viel Potential auf der Strecke liegen gelassen hat.
