While the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the upcoming Thor movie tie-in game embrace the thunder god’s movie appearance, Red Fly Studios’ version looks a bit more like World of Warcraft exploded in New York City.
Graphics aren’t everything, of course. I’ll take a fast-paced cartoony game to a slow and stuttering graphically complex title any day, and Thor: God of Thunder for the Wii just might fit the bill. Then again, given Sega’s track record with Marvel movie video games, I’m not holding my breath.
Thor: God of Thunder hits all platforms on May 3, making it the perfect disappointing birthday gift for any Kotaku editor that might have been born on May 1.
