Thor: God of Thunder takes a brutal hammer to the head in this video review with Tom Mc Shea.
I have the movie and I can safely say that half the levels I saw in this video arent even in the movie, but thats to be expected. Movie to video game always fails.
What is actually suprising is that the film industry have not learned that movie to game is always unsuccessful. This game probably had a huge effect on Sega's reputation.
Thank you Tom, I was interested in this game because it does support 3D and is out for 5£ now, but after this review I won't buy it.
Marvel always had problems delivering outstanding games: Iron Man, Hulk, X-Men: the official game, Spiderman, ... are all mediocre, or fair at best. They need to stop laying games whenever a marvel movie is released.
I recently played this myself, just to see if it really was that bad. It is. I'd give it 1 out of 10, lower if that was possible. The worst game I've played in a long long time.
Honestly dont know why I was even looking at this game... I guess I was just curious to see how well..or not.. well.. lol it turned out. People saying this is the lowest score theyve seen--does anyone remember the Kane and Lynch fiasco on GS a few years back... THAT my friends.. was epic. And of course it was BS that he got let go because he gave an honest review.. GS, you make me laugh sometimes for so many reasons lol
When I see a game with a low rating w/ a review, I just have to watch.... sometimes you just need a laugh =D
I was cracking up just thinking about him playing the game in agony haha I feel terrible for you tom
i had to stop watching that trailer because that guy was dead on about this being a suckish game. now i dont usually judge games, i respect all games but this one really burned my eyes right out of my sockets... very bad game, i AGREE!!!
I watched the full review to see why the damn low score and frankly it deserves it. I knew this was gonna be a shipwreck
@j-hova21: Activision didn't MAKE the games, they PUBLISHED them. Raven Software made the great X-Mean games and M:UA(the first one, they also made the second but that sadly wasn't near the quality of the first).
Here's Ah Great Idea,,,,,,,, STOP LETTING SEGA MAKE THESE HERO GAMES !!!! They Shud let Activison Make The Hero Games, Especially Marvel Games..... Look At X-Men And Spider-man, Those Are Great Games, And What Company Made It? (Activision)
Conversation at Sega : "Hey, wanna see who can make a game the fastest?" "Shyeah, but lets make it interesting." "Blindfolds?" "Blindfolds."
I am an ope-mined gamer, but this particular review of "Thor," makes me worry about the possible outcome of other superhero games in 2011, like "Green Lantern" & "Captain America."
@ istuffedsunny. It's not just about the pisspoor graphics though is it? Did you actually watch the review? Sloppy sloppy game that should have been stopped from being released by SEGA way before Liquid said it's finished.
the Only movie games I dont trust are the ones that dont even try to give you any info on the game at all prior to the release date in any way. like for example, Green Lantern hasnt told us anything about the game except for some of the plot & how theres going to be some co-op gameplay for the story and the movie comes out in less than two weeks so I really dont expect it to be good in any way. Transformers and Captain America have given us gameplay demos and previews, so I dont have hi hopes but I expect them to be some good and at least do better than this.
God of War gameplay + great graphics = awesome score. God of War gameplay + bad graphics = terrible score. Amirite? I swear reviewers see a movie-based game and feel obligated to tear it apart, when in fact it's barely any different from the game it's emulating. Graphics make or break a game these days, apparently.
I'm not saying that this game is good, cause it ain't. but as for the difficult part, this reviewer seems to be, well, bad at games. It's not the first review that he has mentioned the difficulty as a bad example. But he loves games that has No challange (i.e fable 2), so maybe you shouldn't listen to ONLY this huy when it comes to games quality. I do agree that the game sucks, but hey, even a blind chicken will find a corn eventually (the reviewer being the chicken). I might be wrong about him, but that's just the feel I get from watching his reviews. He does have a way with words thought that I do like.
PlayStation 1 games are laughing at this games' graphics. Iron Man: The game is laughing at this games' game-play. Super Meat Boy looks like the easiest game compared to this one. Yeah, if some of you, people, lost their mind or are retarded or don't have a life, i would sincerely recommend this.
wow im not buying this one. i dont think ALL movie based games are awful. i really enjoyed the harry potter games up until the last one but, yea this looks suckish
i think this is a little contest, movie game designers have with each other to see who can be a greedier group of rejects.
