Fun way to kill some time (and some monsters)
on December 25, 2012
If you're in the mood to smash things with a hammer, this is your game. A side-scrolling beat-em-up, it's a good way to kill time in the doc's office, especially if you like Thor. The story is sort of a throw-away, but it doesn't serve as a prequel to the events of the film - no spoilers, but you do get a sense of some of the characters' personalities. The graphics are standard sprite work, looks good for what they are, just know this is a 2-D game (less God of War, more Castlevania, minus the branching paths).The boss battles are some of the best I've seen on DS - monsters that take up the whole screen, and you get to fry them with lightening - what's not to love? When you finish, there's a side quest that isn't anything major, but you do get to see Lady Sif and Warriors Three in action, which is cool.
If you don't like Thor or pressing one button many, many times, this isn't the game for you. Otherwise, it's a good, short time (3-4 hours).
