This is the sequel to Core's Sega CD game, AH-3 Thunderstrike. Like the previous game in the series, this is a helicopter simulator/shooter. It features realistic features like multiple weapons selection, full freedom of movement, and a mission-based structure. On the other hand, it also throws lots and lots of enemy tanks and helicopters at you to blow up.

The graphics in Thunderstrike 2 are drawn completely with 3D polygons, including the helicopter's cockpit. As you track an enemy, the view changes so that it is always in your sights. There are 8 campaigns to complete, each with multiple missions.


Thunderstrike 2 PlayStation Destroying a watchtower.
Thunderstrike 2 DOS You can move the camera in your heli's cockpit.
Thunderstrike 2 DOS A level is cleared when all enemy objects are destroyed.
Thunderstrike 2 PlayStation Gunning down a pirate ship.
