2011 was an unbelievably great year for SEGA…for the most part. Even the best game company will always have its strings of hits and misses. However, last year I could only really think of one bad stinker. One starring a certain Norse god you will read about later on. With that in mind, I decided to comprise a list of SEGA games that disappointed me in some way. Games that while not outright bad (except one), did not live up to their expectations. If you find a certain favorite of yours on the list, do not take it personally, as this is mainly coming from my own personal view. Read on to find what SEGA games left me a little flat.
Better late than never I guess. Marvel Comics has announced on thier site that Captain America and Thor will be arriving soon for the Nintendo 3DS. The all-but-abandoned games will arrive around the same time as their DVD/Blu-Ray releases. With Thor on September 13 and Captain America on October 25. No screenshots or video have been released for either game.
Unlike the good looking Cap’n America game that SEGA is putting out, Thor has been in development for two years according to PlayStation Universe, and still looks like crap. I suggest overlooking this one. Maybe if you’re bored and up for a good laugh, check it out a few years from now when it’s cheaper than those Burger King 360 games that are everywhere at used game shops.
Anyway, I guess the story is good and somewhat original, and it has a score set by Inon Zur, who composed music for Dragon Age II. Looks like that’s it.

Behind the scenes with Thor
Thor: God Of Thunder
SEGA appeared at WonderCon in San Francisco last week, and showed off their two remaining Marvel games: Captain America: Super Soldier, and Thor: God Of Thunder. Above is a new behind the scenes look at Thor, and a very bad looking Thor trailer for the Wii. Over at the SEGA Blogs, they also included that awful looking Captain America Wii trailer that I previously reported on.
So, what do the SEGAbits readers think of these two games? I think Captain America is looking a lot better than Thor, and I hope SEGA will strive for this quality anytime they ever think about making another license game.
Direct from Comic-Con, here is the teaser trailer for SEGA’s upcoming Thor game. It really doesn’t show off a whole lot, but we do at least see a bit of what could be in-game graphics.
In addition, Comics Alliance has some photos of the game’s concept art. Hit the jump for a few choice examples!
Above is the concept art for both Thor and Captain America. This is to show off what their on screen outfits will look like. I have to say, the Captain America one is passable, but I do not like the Thor one that much.
If you did not know, SEGA will also be making a Thor and Captain America game based on the upcoming motion pictures. Hopefully they turn out better than the Iron Man games.
