Summary: When I play games that are movie tie-in's, I don't tend to expect much considering that the majority of the time they are rushed out to coincide with the films release date. But as a casual gamer who only plays games ever once in a while, I've found more than a few of them to be enjoyable, if forgettable.
Summary: If you have to get your Thor fix, then buy Marvel Ultimate Alliance by Activision. It's a little older (but still better than this game in my opinion) and heavily features Thor from the beginning. This game would have been really cool 20 years ago, but it sucks in comparison to modern games. Games like Batman: Arkum City are what you'd expect considering today's advances in video game technology.
Summary: As a fan of marvel and Thor in general i read every negative review and decided to give it a shot anyway, I mean its Thor! but i should have listened, this game embodies everything you do not want in a game and now i sit in anger as i see this trash sitting in my game collection, please do not waste even a dime on this game, it is by far the worst game of this century!
Summary: This game has so many problems. First is that it seems like it takes the game about 3/4seconds to respond to certain commands. I feel like this gets worse as the game goes along, especially with the need to grapple and press button combinations in a fight sequence. But even a simple walk+jump together and Thor walks off the edge of something. Which brings me to #2 level design. Most of the time what to do or where to go is confusing.
Summary: In all seriousness this is one of the worst games ever made for the ps3. Look up the reviews at IGN or gamespot, watching them bash on this game is the only entertainment you can hope to get from this garbage.
Summary: One caveat: the grapple feature may be better on the Xbox 360. Other than this possibility, this game is all but unplayable. Boss battles, every one of which hinge on the use of the grapple function, are nothing but repetitious replays of you waiting for the game to give you a fighting chance. Sometimes the grapples work. Most times, they do not. Or you have less time to see the indicated direction of stick before choosing, and if you choose wrong, God help you.
Summary: Ultimately disappointed. I waited and waited for this game to go down in price, and once it became reasonable ($20 in store), I picked it up. I couldn't wait to play it. And I was disappointed to find out that I've played this game before. It is a exact replica of the game Ghost Rider. Thor goes around smashing people with his hammer and throwing his hammer at these blue goblin looking creatures (Ghost Rider used his chain to whip at evil creatures).
Summary: You know that rule about comic book movie adaptations that have really bad tie-in video games? Yeah, that's in full effect with Thor: God of Thunder. From the same crew that was behind Sega's two Iron Man games (and the upcoming Captain America game), Thor puts you in the boots of the titular God of Thunder as he takes on Frost Giants and other assorted baddies, in a style that is pretty much a quasi-God of War ripoff.
Thor Should of Stayed At Home for This Adventure...

Summary: Thor: God of Thunder is a movie tie-in game that could of been very unique and fun but instead turns out to be a very bad clone of God of War mixed with some The Force Unleashed (in my opinion). While I do not own a physical copy of Thor I was given the opportunity to play through the game by a friend and in doing so I was glad I did not purchase the title, despite being a big fan of Thor. GAMEPLAY This is one of the major problem this game has in my opinion.
Summary: Let's be honest. I've played the game... but not played it all the way through to the end. So, as a result, my review may somewhat seem a little bit premature, but I sincerely doubt it. The reasons are numerous: The graphics belong to a game of 7-8 years old. The dialogue, cheesy... The fight/action sequences, reminiscent of Mortal Kombat games, combos and such... Player interface, poor and old-fashioned...
