Gaming age Review - 1942: Joint Strike

Aaron Vaughn Writes:

"Way back in the day, kids had a collective gathering spot which was called an arcade-usually filled with machines which granted playing time when fed coins. Most of these arcade cabinets ate up our weekly allowance or earnings, but then console gaming came along and ushered us back into our houses; reminding us that it was okay to be hermits. Those of us who remember the more social glory days of coin-op fighters (and the real fights that could break out as a result of them), light gun shooters, and shootemups will appreciate the online arcade-style games which welcome some of these genres back into our lives at what many will see as a reasonable price point.

1942: Joint Strike is a throwback to Capcom's arcade 194X series, which puts players in the cockpit of a fighter plane looking to take on some sizeable foes. The WWII-themed shooter is presented on a 2D plane with 3D graphics-- and HD this time around. This change neither harms nor helps the game in presentation or gameplay-it just makes everything a perfect fit and sharp as a razor on an HD set." (1942: Joint Strike, PS3, Xbox 360) C+/A+
