Thor: God of Thunder Review


God of ?eh?

Interesting rune system, plenty of combos and upgrades to purchase

You don?t really need them, unclear where story fits in relation to movie

Thor: God of Thunder- NDS


In Thor: The Video Game game, Thor battles through the numerous worlds of Norse mythology to save Asgard, the capital city of the Norse Gods. Players will wield the iconic Mjölnir, Thor's legendary hammer, to fight his enemies in this unique Nintendo...

Thor: God of Thunder Review for the DS



Amazing pedigree; Responsive combat controls

Terrible execution; Tacked-on touch screen support; Lather Rinse Repeat, Lather Rinse Repeat, and so forth; Moves don't upgrade and super moves don't always work; Flat 2D, no old-school beat-em-up depth

Thor: God of Thunder (DS) Review


The video game version of the Marvel blockbuster is out; is it a hit or another failure for the movie-related video game genre?

Thor: God of Thunder Playtest – Possesses The Power Of Thor


Thor spans both DS screens, so there's a lot of vertical room to move around in. Luckily, combat is designed around this aspect of the game, which is great.

Thor can also perform Ninjitsu-like moves, Shinobi III style. You can choose between different Ninjutsu moves using the L button, and once your “godly power metre” is full, tap the touchscreen to use one of these. Lightning strikes, powerful winds…you...

Thor: God Of Thunder


Sometimes old-fashioned is a good thing. And sometimes it's just old-fashioned.

Given WayForward’s adherence to the classics, the company should remember that a colorful, barely interactive background is one of the chief pleasures of the beat-’em-up. Games like this require a constant stream of landmarks and colorful...

Thor: God of Thunder


The game plays much like others of the genre; like Ninja Gaiden and God of War, with a button for melee attacks, blocking which can counter and reflect projectiles and magical attacks, which you can select. These attacks, which take the form of...

Thor: God of Thunder Review


This game adaption is less "god of war and thunder," and more "god of snore and blunder."

Though the initial trailers were unconvincing, I'm happy to say that Marvel's first Thor film looks to be a winner. Relative newcomer Chris Hemsworth reportedly turns in a commanding performance as the titular Norse god, a supremely well-respected...

Thor: God of Thunder Nintendo DS Review


If you grew up playing Super Nintendo and Genesis or just have a soft spot for 16-bit beat-em-ups, Thor offers several hours of monster bashing fun. Obviously, you play as the Norse god, charged with saving Asgard from a troll invasion.

Attractive 16-bit style graphics, action across both screens, humongous bosses, a variety of runes to equip

Supremely repetitive

Developer WayForward is like a box of chocolates. As Forrest Gump would say, you never know what you're going to get. The company's responsible for Ping Pals, one of the worst games on DS, as well as Contra 4, arguably one of the best. Sega's Thor: God...

Thor: God of Thunder Review


Impressive boss battles aren't enough to save Thor: God of Thunder from its shallow combat.

Memorable boss fights against massive foes ; Attractive visuals

Shallow combat ; Action rarely changes in any meaningful way

In addition to the Story mode, there's a Survival mode in which you see how long you can stay alive while fighting off wave after wave of enemies. The combat is no more exciting here than in the Story mode, so there's little reason to bother with this...
