Zzap!
Literally arcade perfect all the way through with the coin-op's attract mode and the level completion screens. There's even a Spectrum – i.e. mass attack – emulator hidden away in the game! Effectively they ARE the graphics from the coin-op but unbelievably they've been improved upon! A host of near perfect samples together with a moody title tune and enjoyable inter-level music. Instantly playable even if it didn't have the Thunderbolt name to attract the gamesplayer. The more you play it the better it gets and boy, is there a challenge in this game! We're not talking an Amiga conversion of the coin-op here; we're talking the coin-op in an Amiga!

Amiga Joker
Natürlich ist Operation Thunderbolt trotzdem absolut ungeeignet für Leute, die Kriegsspiele verabscheuen, denn an Brutalität wurde wirklich nicht gespart. Wer dagegen seine Aggressionen am liebsten an Terroristen und Miezekatzen ausläßt, wird seine helle Freude haben – zumindest bis die BPS wider zur „Operation Index“ schreitet! Und das kann in diesem Fall nicht sehr lange dauern...

Amiga Action
Every so often Ocean produce a storming arcade conversion. Operation Thunderbolt was just that. Released in the late eighties, it received heaps of favourable reviews and sold by the lorry load.

Power Play
Das Spiel ist technisch sauber programmiert, die meisten Elemente des Original-Automaten sind vorhanden. Trotzdem ballert man nur recht lustlos in der Gegend herum, das Spielprinzip gibt auf die Dauer nicht viel her.

Amiga Power
Utterly mindless genocidal slaughterfest; perhaps the best Op Wolf game to date. More of the coin-op's appeal is down to the cabinet-mounted Uzi than you might think, leaving the Amiga version somewhat 'flat'. Everything you could expect a conversion of Operation Thunderbolt to be.
