The game industry must be stubborn. Year upon year, it belligerently churns out horrible movie tie-ins with only a handful of games rising above the dirge. Thor: God of Thunder is not one of those bright lights. It is an outright poor game and, moreover, a huge disappointment.
This was a character whose basic powers and abilities should translate perfectly into a high-drama, high-octane action game. God of War is, of course, the template but Thor: God of Thunder doesn’t come close to knocking Kratos from his lofty perch. The license and the character are wasted, and a boundless universe is crushed by unimaginative and poorly executed game design.
The God of Thunder deserved better.
