    Thunder Tier One is an exciting tactical feast for both solo players and squads alike. There is some wonkiness to its AI, but its tense shooting mechanics and focus on information and visibility make it hard to overlook for fans of hardcore military shooters and tactics game experts alike. It’s not an easy mission, but it’s one you should definitely take on.

    Thunder Tier One is a good game. It has a decent amount of customization options, features a good tactical system that will entertain those looking for a tactical fix, and doesn’t really do anything groundbreaking or genre-changing for tactical shooters. It’s simply a good game with hopes for more content in the future.

    The top-down tactical shooter Thunder Tier One offers a realistic and engaging singleplayer campaign, unfortunately ruined by AI partners who are too prone to ignore orders and cause havoc. The multiplayer is fun and shootouts are hectic, but there’s also a distinct lack of modes and the progression system isn’t too exciting. We don’t doubt Krafton will keep the game patched and updated though.
  4. Thunder Tier One is a production that has decided to fail of its own accord, while it will be successful in general terms.

    In addition to the few inaccuracies of the aim or the artificial intelligence of the allies making solo progression quite delicate, it is for the moment by its lack of content that Thunder Tier One sins. By relying on the community to enrich the game with new maps and missions, KRAFTON Inc risks seeing its game falling into oblivion, which would be regrettable given the pleasure that can be taken in completing missions in cooperation, which will require tactics, communication and planning to be carried out “properly”. A real potential that is not yet fully exploited and that fans of this singular genre might find a little too thin.

    While it does have its downsides when playing alone, Thunder Tier One is, overall, a solid wartime strategy game. It encourages its audience to contemplate their actions clearly instead of rushing in headfirst. The combat itself is rather simple - players point and click at enemies to trigger their weapon - but the sense of realism is impressive for the nine-mission campaign, and the ability to play the entire game with friends is a bonus.

    Playing Thunder Tier One feels like babysitting in a warzone. It is stressful, annoying and overall just not enjoyable, especially when playing alone.

    Fantastic little tactical shooter with beautiful graphics, great maps, great sound and funky gameplay. The control is logical and easy toFantastic little tactical shooter with beautiful graphics, great maps, great sound and funky gameplay. The control is logical and easy to internalize. The tasks themselves on "Arcade" (Easy) sometimes quite demanding, and the missions offer many ways to get to the goal. The A.I. is in need of improvement, but overall it is a great game! The customization options of the characters are also the icing on the cake. Simply beautiful! :) I really like it and I have nothing wrong with it so far. The whole thing seems to be quite short, but I am in good spirits that content is submitted here later. In addition, the game offers various MP options which keep you happy. If you feel like an arcade military sim from a bird's eye view, you should access it! Finally something different than always just first-person. :) Expand
