Thor: God of Thunder is a third person adventure based around the Marvel smash hit of the same name. Boasting an all-star cast including Tom Hiddleston, Jaimie Alexander and Chris Hemsworth. Thor: God of Thunder was released on May 3rd 2011 and available on all major consoles on launch. Players take control of the powerful Norse deity Thor, wielding his famous hammer the iconic Mjölnir over a number of worlds including the main films set piece Asgard. Players will use an array of melee combinations, elemental attacks as well as solving a few light puzzles along the way, battling an assortment of monsters including both the movie’s Frost Giants and Trolls there is some fun to be had however the problems with the game show up from the start and continue to the very end. With uninspired voice acting, dull cut scenes, a bad control system and awful camera cuts the game feels more of a chore to get through than a challenge.
Players can also level up and upgrade the Norse god which truth be told can result in some pretty satisfying attacks with the Mjölnir but nine times out of ten these moves although look pretty cool, the sluggish controls make them awkward to pull off. Thanks to all these continued problems you never quite feel in the game, in control of Thor or even part of the Universe they have tried to recreate. In hindsight there are just better games out there to play and spend time on but if you really must get your Thor itch out of the way surprisingly go for the Nintendo DS and Wii version over the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, these are actually a lot better albeit still suffer the same fate in the end.
