I played Thor today wondering if maybe a game made from a movie would be good for the first time. Well no, it left me with no memory from the movie. Just bored outta my mind. The graphics could have been a lot worse but also a lot better. This type of game i just could not stand after 20 minutes of playing. The animation of the players well sucked. There mouths did not match the lips the action was corny i give this game a flat out "F" or 1. No blood that i can remember (I love blood XD) I thought it would follow the story line of the movie... Okay i did not expect a good thrill outta this game i mean come on just by looking at the trailer for the game you could tell this was a terrible game. A message to all you hard core gamers. Don't buy Thor or any game made from a movie.

Anyone looking to live out an adventure as The Almighty Thor should look elsewhere. This game is horrible & it ranks up there with Bionic Commando & Leisure Suit Larry Box Office Bust. The controls are weak & there is no lock on system for your targets which will have you disappearing in the enemies while getting pummelled. There is no level select option so if your trophy hunting be prepared to play the entire game from the start if you missed one. This is one game that is better used as a drink coaster then entertainment. PS-Did you know that Thor can not fly (at least according to this game).

I was real excited when I received this game but...was quite disappointed. I was expecting an action type game similar to X-men Origins Wolverine. Thor game play slowed very noticeably. His reaction after landing a jump was slow. There were plenty of "stand-by" time, where Thor just stood there for a second or two, then the controlled movement would kick in. It wasn't easy navigating the game also. And fighting the frost giant towards the end was extremely difficult even on the easy level. However, after figuring out how and what to do to destroy the frost giant, it was doable. Fighting the last giant, was odd because R1 to use Thor's fury meter resulted in the beast walking over to Loki and trying to slap him. At that point, it was very difficult to see the gapple indicator. I know Thor is able to fly at will and battle in mid-air but in this game he only jumps and does combos. He does a mid-air thunder clap but why does he need to be prompted to fly? X-men Origins Wolverine is by far the better game. Activision got it right! Wolverine is a brawler! SEGA...well I remember SEGA Genesis it was good at the time but this Thor game not even close to Wolverine. I hope Captain America is better...
