    Good game as a whole with some negatives. Repetitive enemies, level design and combat. Long levels become a tedious task and you end up finding yourself bored. Despite this, boss fights are entertaining, however, not as challenging as expected. Runes add a nice touch. Sound isn't amazing but suit the game. Graphics are beautifully crafted as opposed to blocky 3D graphics. The controls are amazing, but as mentioned before combat becomes dull after awhile. Ultimately, Thor is the best 2D side-scrolling action game on the Nintendo DS and is worth your time. Expand

    if you like any of wayfowards other offerings on the ds, then you will love this title. If you love side scrolling beat em ups in general, then you will love this title. ..thor has a good amount of moves and power ups to keep things fresh on all ends. .. boss battles are alot of fun and the control feels great.. the thing i love about wayfowards work, is the 2D animations!.. they really proved themselves to be talented in this field with the best game available for the dsiware, shante... a masterpiece for any platform gamer. if you can find thor for $20.00 grab it ...2 thumbs up for wayforward and sega..im a happy camper.

    Once you're finished, something that should only take about five hours, you can unlock the super hard Ragnorak mode, and maybe then your thirst for challenge will be sated, but at that point, why bother? There may be more moves to unlock and different costumes to flit about in, but by then you've seen all there is to see and honestly, hitting a giant with a hammer is only so interesting, regardless of how many different ways you can swing it.

    WayForward clearly aimed to put out something more than the cheap cash-in and in the process produced probably the best of the Thor games and one of the better movie tie-ins in recent memory.

    The game does get bogged down in far too many unskippable and boring dialogue sequences. [Issue#110, p.118]
