Gaming Nexus: 1942: Joint Strike Review

Gaming Nexus writes: "I wasn't the biggest fan of the 194X series when it was in the arcades but I do remember playing the game at various arcades growing up. This was mostly because I could barely get through the first level on a single quarter which frustrated me to no end. I got my top down top down shooters fix from Xevious guy as I enjoyed the pacing and the ground attack element just a little bit more. That aside the franchise has been around for years and there's a reason for it, it's pretty damn good.

1942: Joint Strike is not a remake of the classic arcade game (like Bionic Commando:Rearmed) but rather a new iteration of the the classic series that's been adopted to this generations HD consoles. The move to HD consoles brings a lot of changes, the biggest being the change in the shape of the screen. Capcom has embraced the fact that the screen is now wider than it is tall which changes the game in subtle ways. This is most noticeable with the included co-op mode as each player has a bit more room to roam." (1942: Joint Strike, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) B/A+
