PlayTM: 1942: Joint Strike Review

PlayTM writes: "For those greying gamers old enough to remember its arcade origins, Capcom's money-hungry 1942 was a cabinet-based beast of a videogame. A relentlessly paced top-down aerial shooter, the World War II bullet bonanza dished up a blend of challenge and addiction that demanded the investment of serious coinage alongside superhuman control reflexes from anyone looking to progress further than its first end-of-level boss battle.

By employing developer Backbone Entertainment (Death Jr., Sonic Rivals) to revitalise its beloved franchise via the Xbox Live Arcade release of 1942: Joint Strike, publisher Capcom has opted to throw buckets of aesthetic gloss at the re-imagined series entrant, while remaining ever faithful to 1942's teeth-gnashing difficulty."
