Here’s the pitch. Thor: God of Thunder is a hack and slash action game based on the hit movie from Marvel Studios and director Kenneth Branagh. Mind. Blown.
Remarkably, the Nintendo Wii and 3DS versions of Thor: God of Thunder are better than the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions, and a cut above most other movie tie-ins. Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston also post good performances.
Side bar. When I went to school in the late 1980s, the mythic character of Thor was also popular from his appearance in Atari’s Gauntlet. One of my favourite memories is of being in a drama class and my friend Jason getting into character and proudly proclaiming “I’m Thor! From the Gauntlet Family!” Bless him.
