  • Summary: Based on the Franchise Pictures movie of the same name, A Sound of Thunder takes you to a future where time travel is possible. Things quickly go wrong when someone alters the past, creating a sequence of time ripples that mutate the present-day world. Now you must solve the mystery and sort out a mess that just might mean the end of human existence. You'll solve puzzles, manipulate items, interact with other characters, and eliminate mutant creatures and plants. In addition to a single-player mode, the game features both cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes. Expand

  1. This is one of the few times that a GBA game has actually piqued my interest in seeing the movie that it was based on.
  2. 75
    It's definitely worth the price of admission if you can score three other players and some link cables, because this game offers some surprisingly decent deathmatch action that only needs a single cartridge for the network.
  3. The 11-stage, single-player Story mode presents challenging lock-and-key puzzles, but the enemies are incredibly similar and tend to be easy to defeat. [June 2004, p.122]
  4. Though far from bad, A Sound of Thunder just seems to be going through the motions to deliver an isometric adventure game filled with fetch quests amidst bland levels and typical looking puzzles. [Apr 2004, p.71]
  5. A Sound of Thunder is chock full of some of the worst box-pushing tasks I've ever seen. Then again, it's also home to some of the worst driving controls and blandest graphics I've seen, so I guess that shouldn't shock me. [Apr 2004, p.110]
