Dipping into the brown bag of goodies is always good and Capcom proves that they are a fully capable developer. We've seen rehashes of Commando, Bionic Commando and now 1942. Is 1942: Joint Strike a weak attempt at cashing in on the XBLA cow or has Capcom hit gold once again on one of their oldest shooters?
I've always been a fan of old school Capcom games. 1942 was probably one of the first vertical scrolling shooters I played after Xevious. There may be others but this series made a huge impact on all fans of shooters. Joint Strike brings it all back in a huge way. There's online co-op, 3D graphics, achievements and leaderboards. Talk about upping the ante!"
