LORDS OF THUNDER / WINDS OF THUNDER (HUDSON SOFT / RED)

SUPER CD-ROM 2 (ENGLISH AND JAPANESE VERSION)

Since the first Hu-Card games, PC-ENGINE showed the world it was, by far, the best system for shooters, with a great amount of high quality titles. Among many softhouses that have created awesome shooters for this videogame system, Hudson Soft has always shined. Anyone who have ever played a game from Soldier trilogy (Super Star Soldier, Final Soldier and Soldier Blade) know that Hudson had no rival on shooter game, with the honorable exception of Naxat Soft.

 

With the advent of CD, the "shooter-maniacs" could barely wait for the brand new games about to come. Some excellent shooters were released on CD-ROM2 System (Download II, Spriggan, Zero Wing), but the milestone shooter for PC-ENGINE CD was Gate of Thunder, created by Hudson for the Super CD-ROM2 release. Gate of Thunder was the must at that time, until the creation of Lords of Thunder (Winds of Thunder, in Japan).

At the first sight, Lords of Thunder's plot isn't really impressive...you control Landis, a god who has to fight against 6 other gods (6 Lords of Mistral) commanded by the awful Dark Zaggart. A shooter...controling a flying god? Doesn't sound promising, but...
 

It takes the breath away! Lords of Thunder is the definitive shooter for PC-ENGINE! It has a long and well drawn opening sequence, and the game itself is one of the faster and challenging shooters ever released on any videogame system. Plenty of multi-directional scrolls and a truly PERFECT soundtrack! High quality heavy-metal musics, reminding some of best Yngwie Malmsteen or Joe Satriani songs.

 
Lords of Thunder is a really hard game. Who's not used to play shooters wouldn't even pass the first stage...otherwise, if you're a shooter addicted, you'll want to play it for hours. It's certainly one of the best PC-ENGINE games, and one of the best shooters of all-time!
