Thunder: The sound of planes in Thunder Force VI, of car engines in Gran Turismo 5 Prologue Spec III, the sound of applause for the fighters in Togeki 08 Super Battle & more


Thunder Force is one of the long living classic series that pushes the limits of the consoles which the games are published on. The first game was released in 1983 as a horizontal scrolling shooter.

As the games developed, new elements are added to the series, like enabling a 360 degrees scroll function and introducing more planes and weapons for every new installment.

It inherits the adrenaline pumping game play, the voluminous amount of weapons and stages. If you are sick of the gimmick filled games and is dying to have some traditional shooting fun, Thunder force IV is the game for you.

A star studded cast of sound producers are working together to hit you with full thundery force. The list of composers are: Tamayo (Rayforce) Sato Tsuyoshi (Raiden Series) Furukawa Motoaki (Gradius II) and Kaneko Tsuyoshi (Sega Gaga)

It has been 6 months and more since the game was upgraded to Spec II via a downloadable patch and gamers are all craning their necks for Spec III, a new update. While owners of the old GT5 Prologue can download the Spec III patch off the net, those new to the game can get this completely updated game via a Blu-Ray Disc.

The modifications that went into the game include the addition of new cars: GT from Citroen, Ferrari California by Ferrari and Evola by Lotus, resulting in a total of 74 cars. A new reward system is used in all the events, you get more prize money by winning and the developers have readjusted the difficulty levels of the races.

Time trial penalties are removed, instead the time records you set would be deleted all together if you break a rule. The execution of techniques such as drift will differ slightly. Other technical aspects such as sounds and manuals are all adjusted.
