have you played the thor game

My 10 year old cousin made me play it and I thought it was one of the worst games of all time.  I love the movie though

Yeah the game was painful. I put a few hours into it. It drained the will to survive out of me.

I do not plan on it. Saw clips and made me think "is this for the Game Cube?"

Sony are really making disappointing games with the Marvel characters they have been given

Both Iron Man games sucked, and I wouldn't surprised if Thor sucked even though I haven't nor want to play it. But when it comes to superhero movies, it seems that they must always be accompanied by a random and very crappy game. Hopefully Captain America will be better...but the fact that it's being made by the same people who made the Thor and Iron Man games....weeeell let's just say I don't have my hopes up for an epic game....even though I'll still be getting it <_<

It's no secret that 99,9% of movie based games sucks extremely bad since they are rushed half-assed products that are expected to sale based on name alone.

If you're interested in a superhero game, then play "DC Universe Online". It's like the only good superhero game, that exists.
Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions is fun too, but it's too short. Batman: Akrham Asylum is a good game.
 
Games based on movies are garbage, all the time, or am I mistaking?

@Enzeru: You are not mistaking at all, my friend. I would, however, add one small caveat to your overture, and that is that games based on and released as promotional tie-ins to movies are garbage, all the time. That one Riddick game was pretty fun, and the recent Ghostbusters game was enjoyable, but neither of them were released alongside a film; they were meant to be stand-alone products that had to succeed on their own merits. You typical movie tie-in game gets all the hard work and care put into it as the movie tie-in lunchboxes. I should know, I had the misfortune to have played E.T. on the Atari 2600, the game that nearly derailed the entire industry.

Ou, E.T...
I think that game was even so bad then not even James, the Angry Nintendo Nerd wanted to play it!

Thank God I warned my brother not to get this game.

Well here's how it was then:
 
XBox > PS2 > GameCube (graphics)
 
And now:
 
PS3 > 360 > Wii
 
Nintendo is rather behind. 
 
I own and love the games on my Game Cube. But....

Game Cube definitely had a lot of games. But the graphics weren't as good, on average.

Is bluray really all that? Richer color doesn't really doesn't make a difference in my opinion, ps3 and xbox360 are equal in all aspects except for that. It all comes down to the videogames, ps3 has god of war and xbox has halo, just an example.

Exclusives are all subjective to me. I personally don't think Uncharted is all that amazing, but I adore inFamous.

On the other hand, 360 gamepad is far more comfortable than a PS3 gamepad IMO.

Really? I find the XBox control to be incredibly uncomfortable. I don't know why but I don't like how it feels. I like the PS3 controller.

Same here, i can't seem to find the right grip with a xbox controller for some reason. Doesn't feel right.

And PS3 is gonna get Last of Us, so excited for that game.

I''m probably the only person that enjoyed the game. Would of been nice if I was able to finish it before my Xbox broke though.

I meant overall performance. Game Cube might have better graphics in retrospect, though. But Nintendo is still one whole console generation behind as far as overall performance and graphics go. The PS3 and 360 are much more powerful systems with a MUCH better internet layout (bullcrap "friend codes" ....)

I didn't even play that. I thought about it early on when it sounded like it would be an RPG-style game with some combat, where you FEEL like a student at Xaviers who eventually becomes an X-Man - that sounds awesome.

But what we got.... no....

Now if only they'd hire me... I'd make good games.

Ugh... The Wii U has to be the biggest mistake I've ever seen so far. They have terrific ideas for it, but technically, the machine is sub-par to what the "next-gen" should be shooting for.
