Gameplanet Review 1942: Joint Strike

GP reports:

''XBOX LIVE ARCADE is having a hell of a good time lately with a lot of really quality titles being released over the past few weeks. The newest addition to the list is the classic 2D shooter 1942: Joint Strike.

This is not just a basic port however, oh no, this version has been pimped out with a fresh coat of paint.

It seems to play identically to the original arcade game (at least as far as I can remember, I can't say I've played it in quite a few years). You start off by choosing which plane you want to pilot, there are three to choose from with various amounts of health, fire power and speed. So there is a bit of strategy to which plane you will go with. If you are playing two-player co-op (either on one machine or via Xbox Live) you also get to choose a special co-op power to use. (1942: Joint Strike, PS3, Xbox 360) 8/10
