Un bon beat-them-all, varié et un peu original, même s'il reste classique.
Thunder Fox is a game that was great in the arcade and decidedly worse at home, much like most of the other conversions of the era. It's a vivid reminder of when home consoles didn't usually know what "arcade perfect" was, and unlike other games on the Genesis, such as Moonwalker and ESWAT, which overcame this obstacle by offering versions that are different yet arguably better, Thunder Fox ended up being a watered-down, straight port that's as still quite playable. The sad part is that it's also quite forgettable.
Power Play
Wer schon den Taito-Automaten gespielt hat, wird Schlimmes ahnen: Die stumpfsinnige Brutalo-Metzelei ist ein Musterbeispiel für Ideenlosigkeit. Selbst hartgesottenen Fans des Genres wird durch die lieblose Umsetzung auch noch das letzte bißchen Spaß verdorben. Freund und Feind marschieren wie fußkranke Zombies durch die gähnend leeren Levels. Der geplagte Spieler ist schon froh, wenn ab und zu mal eine Kiste auf dem Bildschirm auftaucht, die man aus Frust eintreten darf. Das gleiche traurige Bild bieten auch die Endgegner: Riesige Sprite-Klumpen donnern konzeptionslos über den Bildschirm, der Spielwitz versickert derweil im Untergrund.
