This is the TurboGrafx at its best. It's been a common comment of IGN's in the past year or so that the amount of forced-scrolling shooters coming to the Virtual Console has been oppressive, especially since the vast majority seem to have come from the TurboGrafx platform. And while that's still the case (IGN even got another one just last week) it's been a reality that's been worth enduring, if only for the promise of eventually seeing the release of the true masterpieces of the genre that originated with the Turbo brand. One of them arrived in October, in the form of Gate of Thunder. And now, finally, the second has appeared as well.
