Dark Thunder Review by Duke Dark Thunder

Review by Duke

Released Sep 5, '14 , Written Aug 28, '14
Intro

Dark Thunder is a gay site with all black guy content. It's been around for a number of years and has nearly three hundred photo galleries and just short of two hundred video scenes. The videos are heavy on the hardcore and then photos tend to feature more solo guy shoots. The guest tour gives a good look at the mix of content and guys that are available to members.


The Pros

  Black Guy Gay Content, Hardcore Video & Solo Photos.

Dark Thunder has niche gay content with all black guys in hardcore videos and solo guy photo galleries. Most of the videos are hardcore guy/guy and even groupsex plus they drop in the occasional solo jerking off shoot as well. Photo s are much more solo guy focused with softcore and jerking off. In addition to the black theme the guys also have very fit and athletic builds.

  Some HD Videos, WMV Downloads & Flash Streaming.

Video options are consistent with full-scene WMV downloadable files and in-browser Flash streaming. They do have the basics covered with both a DL and online viewing option. There some with HD for both formats with 1280x720 on the downloadable WMV.

Other Good Stuff:

  • All content items are date-stamped with update videos showing when they were added to the site. I like that they have kept the gallery dates online despite the lack of updates there.
  • HD scenes are tagged with a little 'HD' icon which is a useful bit of info.

The Cons

  One Download Option, Only a Smattering of HD Scenes.

Nowadays we're seeing more and more sites with a wide array of content download options but Dark Thunder is quite limited with just the one WMV. The bulk of them are standard-def and not at the HD level. Even the HD here is lower end specs of 1280x720 2000k. Not all newer updates have the high-def level so that is hit-and-miss with specs more like 850x478 or 640x480.

  Sluggish Video Updates, Galleries Aren't Updating.

Video updates come at about once every two weeks which is slower than you'd typically like to see from a site like this. The last photo gallery addition is dated from a few years back in 2011 so that section is in-active at this point. Dark Thunder has been around for about six years yet it's still an average sized collection.

Minor Negatives:

  • Pictures quality is average at around 900x600 and there aren't any zip files for saving the galleries.
  • No video file size or spec information is provided for the downloads.
  • The trial is limited access so you do need to be a monthly member to have complete access to the content. There's also a pop-up ad that comes when you exit the tour.

Bottom Line

A straightforward black gay site with hardcore videos & solo guy photos.

Dark Thunder has been a steady site for a number of years with a mid-sized collection of content. The videos continue to be actively updated every couple of weeks. The pictures archive is actually a bit larger in quantity but the dates don't show additions in a few years now. Content does have some HD videos but by today's standards the quality of those and overall content quality/options cover just the basics and nothing more.
