Jammin'! This game sure rocks! Gate of Thunder has to be one of the most well orchestrated games I've seen in a long time--maybe even ever. With non-stop action Gate of Thunder really keeps you busy. An excellent pack-in choice for the Turbo Duo.

Easily the best side-scrolling shooter ever made. I'm generally not one for shooters, but this is the best I've ever played. The graphics are crystal clear with backgrounds that change before your eyes. The control of your ship is perfect; the collision counter is right on the money. The music absolutely rocks and must be listened to. The sound effects are awesome and make you feel like you're there. A great game to pack in with the Turbo Duo.

TTI has done it big this time by releasing easily the best side-scrolling shooter ever into the U.S. Market. And it's one of the pack-ins for the Turbo Duo to boot! What more could a gamer ask for? The soundtrack kicks butt, the sound effects rock, and the graphics just blow everything away. Plus, this game is fast--it doesn't let up on you for one minute. I found myself wishing for more when I solved the game, but I'm satisfied to play it repeatedly. Not a game for the timid or beginner player, Gate of Thunder is a must have in every Turbo gamers permanent collection.

Way cool, dudes. Gate of Thunder kicks. The fast-action play is totally non-stop, the graphics are stunning, and the soundtrack really rocks. An ideal choice as a pack-in for the Duo.
