Thunderstruck was a great game before Microgaming began developing Thunderstruck 2. The original game still has a huge following, but that is not likely to last for long. The reality is that that the developers have managed to create something that is so much better.
The old video gaming platform that was being used for the original Thunderstruck was good, but it certainly needed updating. Whilst Microgaming was among the best at the time, it was quite apparent that some of the newer slots being released were nearly on par with theirs. As Microgaming prides themselves in being the best in the industry, it was only natural that they were going to bring another slot out sooner or later; the Thunderstruck 2 was born.
