Ignore what some of the professional reviewers say about this game. It is NOT the worst game of the year. If anything, it was the most over hyped game of 2011, but the hype came from the same critics that hated it later on. Mostly because it didn't live up to their own hype.

Yes, there is button mashing to the game. And yes, the cut scenes are generally left in the 3D mode, so they seem a little blurry. But they are surprisingly short for cut scenes these days, and are easily ignored if you don't want to look at them. Granted, the story wasn't as good as the movie. But you aren't watching the movie, you're playing a story made for a game. BIG difference.

Let's break all of this down. First off, the button mashing. The designers seemed (at least to me), to acknowledge that there is a fan base for Thor beyond the movie. For those that don't know, the character is over 40 years old. He has his traditional comic book version (the 616 world Thor), the Ultimate version (the universe the Marvel movies are based on), the Dimension X series, as well as the movie variant.

If the designers went with any one of those versions, there would have been fans complaining. So they obviously (at least to me), tried to meld them together to some degree. This still didn't satisfy the fanboys out there, since they can only tolerate one version of a character. The one that THEY want.

This amalgam also led to some button mashing. The programmers wanted to give Thor as many of his powers as they could. I remember when the trailers for the game came out. Certain TV critics on a cable show raved about how Thor should be a powerful character, and the trailer made it seem like he would be.

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. What we have here is a bad clone of God of War mixed with a little The Force Unleashed style gameplay. I enjoyed both titles and the hack and slash style of gameplay. However, Thor's execution of this gameplay style was poorly implemented. After the first hour of smashing and electrocuting mobs I began to notice there is very little in the way of enemy variety or reason to even use your combos. Just mashing attack is often good enough (on normal difficulty setting) to get past most mobs with the occasional need to perform a simple combo attack to break a mob's armor and such. Like in God of War, when you kill mobs you will get experience points pretty much and can use them on a grid to level Thor's abilities up. The grid I felt was easy to use despite having a complex look to it. Included in the gameplay are numerous bugs that plague the title. Animation glitches, sound glitches, bad dialogue, poor physics engine the list goes on. While the problems are not game breaking, they are annoying and some of the bugs I ran into were down right inexcusable to have in a game. ( Next objective did not load for me twice during my playthrough. Restarting at the last checkpoint/save resolved it ). My biggest gripe about the gameplay is the poor execution of the grapple.

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. That in itself would only make the game monotonous, but combine that with the dated graphics engine (it looks like an early PS2 game), buggy gameplay, and horrible controls, and you have a game that is flat out atrocious. Actors Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston, who portray Thor and Loki respectively in the film, sound like they're both half asleep, and the game as a whole feels like it was so rushed out of the gate that it comes off as being unfinished. Avoid.

This game it's not as bad as everyone says in other reviews, it's a pretty straight forward game, beat the crap out of everyone in the screen, sure it tends to be repetitive, but the game play it's pretty easy, the graphics are ok, and the story its good. If you are not a big comic book fan or a casual fan, I'm sure this it's not for you, but if you a re a big fan, I'm sure you'll like it. At first I thought it was going to be like IRON-MAN 2 wich I finished in about 6 hours, but I've played so far for about 5 and I'm just at half the game story.

Give it a try, specailly wihthe price it has now.

Hope this helps.

PLAY ON!!!!!!!
