I wasn't going to be buying it anyway, but gee whiz this looks weak, gonna sell big dollar though.

As most of the comments outline it's just a generic action game from last gen with marvel character skins, bland attacks with no weight

There is something so inherently wrong about the modern incarnation of Thor.

The gameplay also looks quite slow, I tend to hate action games when it feels like you're wading through treacle. Early build, but I doubt the final product will change that much.

Had to laugh when it switched from big dramatic cutscene to actual gameplay and Thor's attacks started making little 'tink' noises like he was hitting them with a toffee hammer.

I played the first two, not sure if there were more, and they were a lot of fun, being able to try different sets of characters together to find out special combos. This new effort does seem a bit of nothing, though, especially given that it seems to have in production for ages.

I don't know if it would feel different if I were actually playing it, but I find it really hard to read what's going on. It's not obvious where attacks are coming from or if Thor is even being hurt by anything. What am I supposed to be looking at here?

Doesn't seem like much of a superhero power fantasy with Thor's hammer barely denting robots either.

Ultimate Alliance 3 came out on the Switch last year.
