"You can get weapon upgrades, but since you lose them every time you die, i.e. every 20 seconds, they're about as useful as a surgeon with Hemaphobia. On the plus side, the game has fancy new 3D visuals, and a score so epic that you'd be forgiven for mistaking 1942: Joint Strike for a Michael Bay film. Yet this doesn't make up for the fact it has the same dull, repetitive gameplay and outdated mechanics. Just because you've covered your Gran in Revlon and Max Factor doesn't hide the fact that she's still your Gran and your mates are not going to fancy her. Sure, you might like this if you enjoy insipidly repetitive gameplay and have a fetish for the eighties, but in that case you're probably not on Xbox live yet because you're too excited about your new Betamax player."
