I had the opportunity to play Thunder Force VI a few months ago and was pleasantly surprised by the game’s smooth controls and design. The game’s graphics are impressive for a Playstation 2 title and the weapons system allows for varied gameplay. Today, on my third playthrough of the game, I recorded footage of the introduction video and Jungle Stage to share with Brainstorm Warning readers.
Thunder Force VI was only released in Japan, but the game’s menus are in English, making the title import-friendly. Thunder Force VI is immediately accessible to shmup (shoot-em-up) novices and experts alike and isn’t as ruthlessly difficult as many other recent shmup releases.
