  • Summary: Kind of a disappointment.600 foot flight ceiling,some difficulty hitting enemy and not a good game for beginners.Playstation One's Soviet Strike was a better game by far.

  • Summary: The game is horrible. The graphics are terrible, it's hard to navigate the chopper and when you do get the hang of it good luck passing a mission.

Nice change of pace from fixed wing fighter plane games...

  • Summary: So far, I've only beaten the first level so this is just first impressions, I guess, but still a lot more fun than I expected. I haven't read the professional reviews and I don't want to, quite frankly. I played the training ground first, which you should if you're smart, so I got the controls down. Learning the controls is not as difficult as others would have you believe. I was really surprised how fun this game was.

simply splendid

  • Summary: TS:OP is a good game,although sometimes it's hard to see or to even complete the level but i'm up to a challenge. I like to use the maverick and firestorm mostly but rockets aren't too good. Also they could've put a co-op mode but oh well. graphics are great sound is great the only thing that's not great is the fact that the enemy has guided missles and other hi-tech weapons, but overall it's a great buy.

Realistic Combat Physics

  • Summary: This is another one of those underrated bargain bin classics, it's a shame that TSOP has been bashed by "professional" game critics who seem to think they know what makes a video games fun. Make no mistake; TSOP isn't fun at the arcades, but it is a realistic flight sim. First off, there is no AIRWOLF turbo button to outrun missiles and dogfight jet fighters(sorry Fireblade fans). The fact is that there is no such thing as a supersonic helicopter.

Tough Learing Curve but Well Worth It.

  • Summary: At first I found the controls difficult but like every other game it just took some time. Relative to Fire Blade (Midway) TS:OP's controls are golden. My standards on graphics and sound aren't too high so I found TS:OP's acceptable. Missions proved challenging, painfully so at times, on the first play; replays offered a lot of "fly and destroy" fun. I didn't notice a lot of differences between the difficulty levels.

This game kicks ass

  • Summary: It took a couple of times to get the hang of it, then when I knew about the weapons I could choose at any time after each stage WOW it's just great....but I then realized that I needed the 8MB chip to save the game that's just a hassle but overall 5 stars.

Leaves alot to be desired.

  • Summary: After playing this game for 5 days, I feel that it is not as good as it first looks. The grpahics are nice, but not sectacular. The Flight controls could be better. The enemies at times are super tough. This can be very frustrating. If you find yourself easily annoyed at doing the same mission over and over till you get it right then avoid this game like the plague. There were a couple of good chopper games out on the old Psx.

Pretty Good Game~

  • Summary: This is a pretty good game, if you like war and helicopters, you will love it. If you are unsure between a couple of flying games I also have Ace Combat 4, and Top Gun. Stay away from Top Gun, Ace Combat is so much better than Top Gun. But if you want the a little helicopter fun, Thunderstrike will take care of it.

Great for the patient gamer!

  • Summary: Thunderstrike is a great game if you have the patience for it. Don't expect to pick it up and start gunning down and bombing everything in sight. A couple of hits and you're done. This game requires strategy (a refreshing change of pace for this genre). Graphics are pretty good, gameplay is great (once you get the hang of it). The missle cams, bomb views and zoom cameras are excellent extras that really add to the enjoyment of this game. Recommended!
