Nice Graphics, Not-So-Nice Game.
Depending on what you look for in a game makes your own opinion different to others. If you specifically like games according to their graphics, this game might interest you. If you are someone (like me) who like graphics, but what really matters is what's in the game, then this game is not recommended to you. There are not many different types of powers and attacks "Mighty Thor and Defender of Odin's Kingdom of Asgard" can "devastate" upon his enemies and sometimes there are so many enemies surrounding you, that you can't punch them before you get knocked out yourself. Also, punching is all you ever do in the game. Fight enemies through all six of the levels (yes, only six). There are no special quests, hidden levels, secret caves and things like that. All you do is run along through six levels punching and throwing your hammer at whoever dares to attack you. Marvel is all about fighting and winning, true, but some flavor would be nice. I got this app when it was free and at first I thought nobody was buying it, so they had to make it free to make some profit. I really think it should be free. If you have nothing to do all day, then why not get this, otherwise rather do something else.
A great game!
Thor: SoA is a fun, sprawling adventure that spans multiple worlds that are inhabited by Asgardians, Frost Giants, and a myriad of baddies with varying degrees of skill to test you.
The story is that Loki has unleashed a new plan against his brother Thor (were you expecting anyone else?) and Asgard. When Sif, one of Thor's oldest friends disappears after seemingly assisting in an attack on the Warriors Three, Thor goes off to find her.
There is more to the story but in the cutscenes, the text is pushed to the side and covered by the character graphics, so I know I' m missing some details here and there.
I've really been enjoying the game, and aside from the issue with the cutscenes, it's a fun adventure any Asgardian fan can get into!
Let's be honest here
Thank god (or Thor in this case lol) that this game is free. Otherwise, it's very pointless for a $3-$5 game. The visuals are very outdated especially when playing on the new iPad and this is supposedly a 2011 game which should've looked better than now (looks graphically similar to Avatar and that's a 2009 game), the combat is very repetitively boring with only a few attacks and enemies. You can't even jump or fly sadly. This is Thor; a demi-god superhero, were talking about for crying out loud,
The only good thing I like about this Thor game is the comic book narration. Everything else is a bore-fest to me. Unless Marvel is willing to hand this to Gameloft so they can enhanced the game graphically and gameplay-wise like what they did with Brothers in Arms back in June, then this app is dead weight.
