    Far, far, far better than Einhander which is soporific and far better G-Darius. TFV is unique and probably the best shoot on PS.

    Definitely for the hard-core shooting fan, as most will find it very difficult. No matter how futile it can seem, though, Thunder Force V is a solid, fun game that never makes you feel like you're wasting your time playing it. [Oct 1998]

    An extremely solid representative of the shooter genre, although it certainly doesn't deliver anything you haven't experienced countless times before. Innovation-wise it gets a below average score, but in terms of enjoyment it's a winner. It's fun, it's furious, and it's highly recommended.
  3. Easily as good as "Raystorm" or "G-Darius" and tough competition for "Einhander", Thunder Force V is a shooting fan's dream
