It's a 6-7 game on mainstream gamesites. It could end up getting 5 on some sites. Unless you're a Thor die hard wait for a price drop. I still Think it's way better than Iron Man 1 & 2.

Yeah, we'll see. I have wanted to play a Thor game, but the reviews are mediocre at best. I do like the idea of unlockable content to collect, I'm just not sure if it's worth the $50. Actually, I hear that the Wii version of the game is a lot of fun, and has bonus levels that take place on Earth. Maybe that's the one to check out?

I'm playing it right now. Is it perfect? No. Is it fun? Of course.

It's not as bad as the previous IM games, if I had to put it up against a movie game, I would say its about a TIH or SM3.

Sega actually took a little bit more care with this game, and it does show. It is a button masher, but you are able to unlock more moves and valor as you progress.

And if you play it, make sure that you destroy all the ice shards in Asgard. Many of them hold the unlockable stuff.

I'm gonna have to wait a while to get it. I definitely want to buy it, but the ol' finances make that a questionable proposition at the moment. Plus, even for as big a Thor fan as I am, it doesn't really seem like it's worth the full, triple-A game price. Hopefully it'll drop to like $40 or $30 soon.

So, as someone who actually liked the first iron man game (though it was a huge hunk of a flaw) and loved TIH, is this worth it?

Sounds like your standards are low enough to like anything, so go for it.

If you liked those games, then yeah, I'd say you would enjoy this one.

I would say pick it up man, you don't have much to lose. As I've progressed through the game, I have had a few hiccups, but it's still didn't take away the fun of it.

Before you start the game, go into the options menu. And you have the choice of playing the game with his helmet or not.


Also, on Marvel.com there's a fun 16-bit Thor game called Thor: Bring The Thunder.

Before. It's not tied to the movie that much, from what I've seen.

Picked this one up today. Took advantage of that Gamestop deal where you get an extra $10 if you trade in 3 or more games.

The game is fun. It's definitely no God of War, but it's a good start for future Thor video games. The combat is interesting. Thor has a lot of different combos and powers at his disposal, but some of them are tricky to pull off because they're one button, or a split second different than another combo. The grapple moves are pretty cool though. Some are tricky, and I do like that the enemy can counter - and you can counter that.

The graphics are good, but the cut scenes are nowhere near as good as they should look. I saw some cut scene graphics that looked awesome - I'm guessing those were for the Wii version, because I don't see them anywhere in the XBOX version.

Overall, it is fun to play as Thor, and the developers did pay attention to what went into the game. Unfortunately, just not ENOUGH attention as they should. It's definitely not a bad game, but it's far from great. It's fun, it's entertaining, and it's a nice warm up to what's sure to be one hell of a comic book movie.

Anyone know if the 4 costumes you're given (movie, helmet, ultimate, and whateverthatis) are the only ones available? I would love to see the Coipel and even classic (as much as I dislike it).

The last costume is Destroyer Thor.

Also, if you want you can change the color of your lighting attack...

Blue, Red, Yellow, Green, Pink, Orange(?)

Destroyer Thor? That's kinda lame. I seriously doubt there's going to be any quality DLC released for this one either.

No, I can't see them adding any DLC. Although, I didn't think they would for TIH, but then it had the multiplayer option. So I guess ya never know.

That's true. I actually traded that in for Thor. Talk about a missed opportunity with a Hulk game. Those boss levels were a joke. Ultimate Destruction is still the single best Hulk game, and one of the best comic based games of all time.

My biggest problem with Thor is the SUPER repetitive combat and the lack of check points. I got to the point where you have to destroy the 4 turrets in the swamp. Got all the way to the last one, took one hit and died. This happened about 4 times. Each time I died....ALL the way back to the beginning.

I'm stuck on the second encounter with Ymir. It's really starting to piss me off.

It got to me too. Beat him until he disappears, then run back over to that ancient ruin thing and try to activate it. He might attack you before you get the thing all the way filled, but just beat him up until he disappears again and start the process over. You'll get it.

Yeah I got it shortly after I posted that.

Pretty much it's; Hammer throw, dodge, wind attack, grapple, chest smash.

Repeat.

Have you tried using thunder powers? I've noticed myself using those more than wind or lighting.

I'm actually stuck on the main boss fight for the troll level. The guy just does the same ground smash attack over and over, and when I hurt him (which isn't much), he jumps up, and throws one of those canisters at me. I have to say, some of the grapple mini-games show hints of greatness in what could be an awesome Thor game. Some of is lighting/thunder finishers are pretty awesome. Just wish they would've paid more attention to the combat, moves, and overall story.

Has anyone unlocked one of the costumes? I can't find a second costume "power up" (don't know how to call it).
Can someone tell me if you have the Ultimates Mjolnir when playing as Ultimate Thor?

At the moment I am stuck in the Asgard Siege level. Don't know how to beat a big frost giant in less than 1 minute. After I destroyed two of his 5 shields, Asgard is falling and the game is over.
Kind of frustrating! Would be great if someone could help me.

Overall I like the game! The graphics are not good but it's a good feeling to play as a god! :-)
