Wait... Have they even said that they're making this game? Am I the only one that has COMPLETELY missed it? I'm usually pretty updated about recent releases...

It's only for the Xbox 360, Jeff? Oh, okay.

Saw the movie yesterday, was really cool. This will probably suck.

You guys should check out the DS version, as it looks to be the best one.

Can't believe games like this are still being made. Do something interesting with the movie IP.

Game seems better than the last Marvel movie Iron Man2, will actually add this to gamefly to rent over a weekend to burn through it. After watching the Quick Look, Brad especially should look at the Comic Vine page for Thor, seems like that would have most of the answers he's after.

Btw never put salt on watermelon but have done that with cantaloupe.

I relive it quite often via YouTube. As I do with many other moments as well.

This game seems like a game that people spent time on.

I hope they're not banking on this and have lots of crappy cereal and Mountain Dew tie-ins to make up for it, or something.

I can see the marketing team saying "Let's put God of Thunder in the title of this game in case anyone doesn't know exactly which game we are trying to copy." And yes, that game is Clash of the Titans.

I don't know what to think of this game. It certainly looks better than the shitty Iron Man games Sega put out, but it doesn't look nearly as fun as X-Men Origins: Wolverine was.

More movie game trash.  The visuals and animations are slapdash, like most movie games, and the gameplay is nothing but a half-hearted ripoff of superior titles... like most movie games.


I know why studios keep releasing this rubbish, but god I wish people would stop buying it.

Thor has a hammer, so in all archetypes of fantasy he must be related to dwarves or works in metalworks.
