1942: Joint Strike - XBLA Review (Planet Xbox360)

While River Raid and Blue Max preceded it on home consoles, most gamers' first favorite arcade vertical-scrolling shooter was Capcom's 1942. Most recognize it as the first quality vertical shooter of its kind, treading a new path for the wealth of similar titles in the eighties. While it got a sequel years back, with 1943, the World War II shooter makes its first appearance on Xbox Live Arcade with a revamped look and cooperative play. (1942: Joint Strike, Xbox 360)
