    This game only confirms our anti-Thor prejudice. He IS crap. [June 2011, p.64]

    On the whole, Thor: God of Thunder is probably only going to be for people who are seriously hardcore about their Thor, as it's clear the Wii version did not get the lion's share of the development resources.

    Despite Thor: God of Thunder's terrible movie-gameness, I cannot totally bring myself to hate it; after all, I legitimately enjoyed the combat. Sure, it wasn't "good" by any accepted definition, but I did find it fun. Unfortunately, the rest of the game is just unqualified terrible.

    Now this was a surprise to say the least. I ended up watching a friend play it at their place after he picked it up, and while it had it's moments of grimness from some QTE mishaps, shoddy voice acting, and pretty blah music, the game was fun. Not terribly long, but the combat is pretty deep if you are willing to follow it in. In terms of combat, boss fights were pretty epic! I was awe struck at the size of Surtur and Ymir, and I swear I've never seen whatever that fire effect was going on in a Wii game before. Maybe we were just seeing things. To be fair the Wii graphics in general for every third party game tends to suck, we know this as gamers. Thor does pretty good overall at looking nice, and while occasionally there are areas where the graphics fall flat in Thor, they make up for it by being over the top during massive storm power usage and combat sequences! I definitely felt like my friend and I were wielding Mjolnir, empowered as a god as we laid waste to our enemies. Multiple cyclones, some sort of cage thing and lightning storms going on at the same time while beating a troll to a bloody pulp was incredibly gratifying.

    All in all this game is pretty good. It's at least worth a rental. I was never a huge Thor comic fan, but clearly this game pulls from God of War, albeit in its own way, to a decent success. As an additional note, I just looked it up on Amazon and apparently it's only $40 bucks too, which is about as much as I'd be willing to fork over and actually seems like a fitting opening price point for the title. All in all, a pretty solid Wii action game that's fun while it lasts.

    O jogo bom, a jogabilidade legal, tem muitos movimentos pra se fazer e pra desbloquear. gostei bastante dos gráficos também e a dublagem também razoável. O que eu não gostei no jogo foram as constantes quedas de FPS que, infelizmente bem recorrente no jogo. Mas tirando isso um ótimo jogo. Full Review »

    I really enjoyed the multiplayer levels a lot. My friend got the sniper rifle and I used the tank. Buyer beware: LOTS OF BLOOD. My little brother had to leave the room after a few minutes. He still has nightmares about what he saw. But in the game's defense, I think it was very anatomically correct about everything it showed. Organs are nothing to be ashamed of. Great game, thanks Blizzard! Full Review »
