Wow, can't believe this hasn't been posted yet. Looks like another God of War/Hero of Sparta copy.

Was just about to post this. It looks kind of like Hero of Sparta, a hack-and-slash no doubt mixed with abilities, mixed with comics. It's actually made by Marvel, wow, that's definitely something new. It even has GameCenter and retina. Could be a good one. Who knows, the game might actually do well due to the movie.

I checked around for some videos when I saw this earlier but had no luck. Screen shots look really good but the gameplay will be the key.

For 4.99? Not until I (we) see a gameplay video. None to be found on YouTube so far either, just checked - it's like this release came smack out of the blue.

This should have ideally been released a couple of weeks back for maximum profit though - the first thing I did when I got back from the movie was search on the AppStore if any Thor-related games were out... haha. Only found Rimelands at the time though.

I'll TOFTT -- it's been a while since I've chanced a higher-priced game. The console version got eviscerated by the critics, so I'm not terribly hopeful.

Was it worth it? Skipped out Fast 5 for Thor, will probably go see it this weekend (and thereafter, be tempted to get the game)... :P
