Your controls are sometimes your worst enemy because the targeting cursor moves slowly, occasionally leaving you open to enemy shots. Fortunately, the colorful, detailed backgrounds and large sprites make you keep trying. The sounds are also strong, as when you hear the clink of incoming knife blades. This Operation is a success, generating plenty of shootin' thrills for intermediate soldiers. You'll get a charge out of this Thunderbolt.
The jury's out on this one. When you're playing it alone, it get's pretty boring after a while but with two players it's slightly more entertaining. It's full of death and violence, which is always a plus, but it just doesn't hold up to games like Doom or Alien: The Gun, or Revolution X or even to the Terminator 2 adaptation for the SNES, where you can feel the carnage. Operation Thunderbolt is really nothing special.
