It's not working :/
Thor Video Game Teaser
Wow don't know where to start, I am liking the idea of a Thor game.. and I liked the first Iron Man "movie" game, although it had less to do with the movie then it had to do with the comic. And Sega did that one didn't they? I wonder what type of bad guys you'll see in the game, I am hoping someone like Grey Gargoyle or even the Wrecking Crew make an appearance.
The film is going to be incredible- all the posts on this site have concurred, and I am inclined to trust their expert opinions. And when you have Kenneth Branagh, the RSC player who boasted he could "out-Shakespeare Shakespeare" (and succeeded, to a point), directing it what do we expect. It lends a sort of credence to the whole superhero sub-genre that I appreciate.
The video game... we shall see. Generally I have not been a fan of games based on films- they tend to be kind of shoddy (probably rush production to get them out around the same time as the film to build on fan hype and increase sales). But who knows, the trailer looks good, and if the movie is quality enough maybe it will bump up the game quality as well. At least thats what I'm hoping.
It's made by Sega...
Movie tie in + Sega = Fail
Movie tie in games suck. They always have. The closest exception was X-Men Origins Wolverine, where the game was much better than the film. But in that case, it was because Raven was working on mechanics for a great Wolverine game before they adapted it to the "plot" of the film. Also, the story was still not very good. It was all about gameplay and those nods to the comics (like the alternate costumes)
Sorry, there's just no way it will be good. Sega haven't made a good game in a long time, they haven't made a good action game in an even longer time, and Iron Man 2 was an abomination (they exceeded expectations by making it even worse than the first one, which nobody thought possible).
Thor will be bad, Green Lantern will be bad, Arkham Asylum II will be fantastic. Simple, really. :)
Oh, and I'll make another prediction, because I'm just that good. The Avengers game will also suck...
