Lords of Thunder is an extraordinary (shmup) game that is a blast to play!

The gameplay in this sidescrolling (shmup) is quite unusual as I will explain in this section. This game is one of the most difficult (shmups) I have ever played as there are hoards of enemies the likes of which I've never seen before. Luckily however, players have enough health to survive a few hits plus can buy extra health, bombs and weapon upgrades among other stuff at the shop before the level starts! Your weapon depends on what armor you choose to use for the level you select. It also can gain power and be upgraded by either collecting certain items or purchasing it at the shop. You can use the points you earn from those crystals you collect after destroying enemies to pay for it.

This game has over 5 levels and takes a Megaman approach as the stages can be played in any order exept the final stage.

Graphics & Sound
The graphics are colorful and absolutely stunning. The models used in the game are detailed and the scenery is unbelievably detailed for a game in the mid 90s! The music in this game is some of the best ever used in a (shmup) game as it uses awesome heavy metal music that sets the mood for the incredibly high level of action in this wonderful game.

Bottom line: This is one of the most challenging games on the Virtual Console service as well as one of the most visually impressive Turbografx-CD games. It has a rockin' soundtrack as well as gameplay that is superb! At 800 Wii Points this is one game (shmup) fans and gamers who want a challenge should not pass up!

Score ☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆ 10/10

10- Perfect This game is nearly perfect, and has little if any flaws, and is a blast to play!
