Over dit spel

Desert Thunder is an arcade-style action tank game for the PC. Ripped from today’s headlines, the storyline immerses players into the heat of a desert-based military conflict. Players will tear through desert, urban and industrial settings in their experimental battle engine, the Abrams M1A6 Advanced tank that’s loaded with awe-inspiring devastating weapons and armored to near indestructibility. You are the commander of a top secret M1A6 experimental tank division in the Armor Task Force. Your mission was to lead the northern front of Operation Desert Thunder, a secret military operation to overthrow a terrorist faction that has taken control of a peaceful Middle Eastern country. Your mission has been compromised, your small battalion devastated. Left with no alternative, you must complete your mission to reach the capital city and rendezvous with allied forces.

The only interesting thing in this game is the hotdog trucks. I blew them up. I may not have the right to speak since I haven't completed the game fully yet but i have 2 hours into the game with 3 more levels to go. Jeez thats a 3 hour game. But the length of the game is good considering you will not want to play any more after the first hour. The fun moments are there when you blow stuff up with some new tank shells/bullets but besides that and a couple of new enemies this game lacks gameplay variety. One tank and 8 boring levels with some fun moments to be had. 2 of those levels are 20 minute survival missions that rot your brain cells with the same respawning enemies for 20 minutes. Its short 3 hours and a boring 3 hours. Its a good thing I got this game for free. "10/10 Its ok. Needs more hotdog trucks." For more on Desert Thunder stay tuned on IGN.

Primitive. If you'd play this game the first time, you wouldn't miss much if you just skipped it.

This game is plainly about driving around with a tank in a desert and shooting at stuff. It's very short, just 2-3 hours. The graphics are very basic and the controls are quite slippery. The game doesn't feel fun at all to play.

Low-res tank battles out in the desert, with the usual obstacles (mines, etc). Clunky, to say the least, but still kinda fun...

Touched a tree, it exploded. Touched a rock, it exploded. Touched a person, he did not explode. Game needs to be more consistent with its explosions.

The controls are horribly laggy, especially if you're trying to use a mouse. There's no option to invert the mouse, by the way, and the top end resolution on the game well below what a modern monitor can use. All in all, it feels (and looks) like a PS2-era game. It certainly isn't worth more than a dollar, tops, although some modding could help.

Only 8 missions, and I took 8 minutes on the first - do the math. Realism? Look elsewhere; straight arcade action. AI - not particularly smart. UT2003 under the hood, and yet no multiplayer. I feel like throwing up... barf... guess I did. Bargain bin material. Fetish for explosions? Get it.

Desert Thunder is bad but in a good way... Yes it's laggy and dreadful. But I love it!! When I saw the "HIP" games logo pop up I knew I was in for a treat!! Like watching boys boys boys by Sabrina in a wine bar in East Grinstead....I have played a few HIP games before most have crashed and bugged out half way through, but they were cheap and fun! I think I bought their whole catalouge in Zavvi for £1. Raise a glass of scrumpy and have a laugh!!!

Pretty cool game. You can relax for a moment. The graphics is a little weak for these times, but it does not interfere with playing.
We go in game one and the same tank. We have the task to defeat rebels. In this game there are 7 or 9 missions. I do not remember. They are varied, and some are very hard.
You can complete the game in a few hours, but it worth it.

I recommend for a small price.

It's rare to find a true gem such as the game "Desert Thunder". Released in 2003, this jawdropping Unreal Engine-powered masterpiece boasts unmatched excellence in virtually all categories - graphics, gameplay, soundtrack, story, cinematics - you name it. This is definitely a game that you will not regret buying. It is worth every single penny you could possibly throw at it, and then some. It is quite simply an amazingly unforgettable experience.

Seeing as you all know I'm a large fan of the great game Desert Gunner (which I also made a review about, go check that out and buy the game it's amazing), I am also a huge fan of Desert Thunder. Although this game has quite some age, being released in late 2003, it is a very HIGH QUALITY game. It consists of high intensity, strategy, and lots of patience. This game should only be tacked by the top of the line gamers. If you're not a huge gamer, don't even worry! I'd still recommend purchasing this wonderful game. Overall, this is one of my favorite games, tied with Desert Gunner (which if you don't already own, you should purchase as well). Seeing as the price is right for only $9.99, I encourage all steam users to purchase this game. If I had to rate this game out of 10, I would give it a rating of atleast 10, if not beyond such as an 11 or 12. It is very exciting and gets you wanting to play for hours on end. This game is very addicting and great to play amongst your family and friends when together. Although it isn't multiplayer, it is a great way to have fun with friends whether you are with eachother in real life, over the phone, or on an online chatting mechanism such as Skype or Teamspeak. Once again I highly encourage all steam users to purchase this game. The graphics are great, the controls are on point, and the fun is non-stop.

Hurry! Don't wait, you never know when prices might go up. And if you already haven't checked out my Desert Gunner review, please do so.

Great development from BrainBox Games. Well planned out. Much better than many games which have recently been published and released.
