I looked at this game tonight wondering why I left it lying there for nearly a year... now I have removed all doubt

I can play some movie based games. However I think exploring what has
basically been seen on the big screen has it's problems. One of them
being the movie has too little action and the result then is constant
padding to it (like the Iron Man game) or it is extremely rushed so you
don't have a decent product. Thor: God Of Thunder is the latter.
The plot differs from the movie. Frost Giants attack Asgard and Thor
goes to Yodenheim and fights them off... Or at least that is the amount
that I have played. Seriously, on Yodenheim there is this one stage
where enemies are constantly trying to kill you while spikes of ice pop
up from the ground in an un-sequenced order.
You really have little chance of getting out of that even on easy mode
and this is coming from someone who has played the Deus Ex games (even
the second one) but unlike the Deus Ex games where if you can't face
the conflict you can sneak around it or some other such tactic, here
you have to fight in conditions like that.
Not to mention that the controls are just bad. The buttons that can be
pressed simply have Thor's hammer hitting other people on it's own...
no lightning, just on it's own. There is one button used to activate a
special attack from wind, lightning or thunder but wouldn't it make
more sense if you had attacks like that to battle the Frost Giants? I
mean seriously, why not electrocute one while spinning another with the
wind while still using the power of thunder and Mjionir to attack
another? Don't say I wouldn't face a challenge that way because when
you make a level more seemingly complex with even stupider decisions in
controls than Deus Ex Invisible War - stop making video games.
So I would only recommend to fans of Thor. I however am not a fan of
Thor and think he is a bland character, someone gave this game to me as
a gift and only tonight when I picked it up again I could see why the
game was one that I put on the shelf. I do believe that superheroes can
make awesome video games it's just... not like this.
