The ORN Empire has created a powerful battleship known as the Plealos, or the Preareos. With this battleship, the ORN Empire resumes their attack on the Galaxy Federation. In the ensuing attacks, the Galaxy Federation affiliated planet Reda is destroyed, and the planet Nepura, aka Nebula, has been captured. The Galaxy Federation soon learns that ORN houses Plealos deep below Nepura's surface when it's not in use, so the Galaxy Federation sends in the FIRE LEO-02 Exceliza as the opportunity to destroy ORN's bases in Nepura and to destroy Plealos.

Dull shoot-em-up indeed
4 June 2006 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

I was drawn to Thunder Force II because it looked like a rather formidable R-Type clone (though, to be fair, the original Thunder Force came out a good while before R-Type) and I do enjoy side-scrolling space-shooters.

What a shame that it had to be so generic and uninspired. Thunder Force II is very lame I am sorry to say. As well as having cool music and hectic gameplay, the one thing that made R-Type stick out from the rest were the amazing bio-mechanical enemies. The enemies in Thunder Force II are among the most generic you could imagine.

Each level consists of 2 different stages. The top-down 360-degree scroller and the standing right-scrolling side-view. Neither offer any kind of innovation and do not take any kind of advantage of the Sega Genesis potential.
