  1. Young Thor would have been a very good Mini if it wasn't for some bugs and annoying details. Nevertheless, one of the best Minis out there!
  2. 85
    Above all, as a portable game Young Thor hits the mark. Levels are portioned out appropriately, with an easy-to-follow story and the option of more depth.
  3. Young Thor is a mini that is big on action and fun. It's an enjoyable and simple side-scrolling action title that's certainly worth its small cost of entry.
  4. 75
    The simple, bold graphics, tailored for smaller screens, look fine on the living room telly and the soundtrack is not obtrusive or distracting.
  5. As a full-price game, Young Thor isn't that great. But as a Playstation Mini, it's pretty impressive. The amount of content that was managed to put into this game, whether it's the variety of enemies, the level sizes, the treasures to collect, even the in-game achievements you can earn, is impressive.
  6. As a retail game, Young Thor is merely adequate with its charm and ambition almost doing more than the gameplay can. As a Mini, however, it's the new benchmark for how these things should and can be done, and we can only hope it continues.
  7. For $5 there's enough fun to be had with Young Thor to justify the price, but if you need your games to be highly polished then you'd best look elsewhere. The combat is extremely uneven, and the controls can be imprecise at times.
