1942: Joint Strike (PS3) - Review

15 June 2009
  • Excerpt: Classic top-down shooters have always been a blast to play. Having to face off against wave after wave of multiple types of enemies at once has been the pinnacle of this genre. There have been many games, like Ikaruga, that have tried to change up gameplay mechanics, but most of the time the games always fall back onto the genre's core style. This isn't a bad thing though. It allows the player to reminisce about all the games of this genre that have came before it.

1942 Joint Strike Review

13 August 2008
  • Excerpt: With all the classic titles that are getting a downloadable reworking, I’ve been waiting for a game to capture more then just the look or name of an older title.

1942: Joint Strike review

1 August 2008
  • Excerpt: Back in the golden age of arcade parlors, a time when the Nathan's Game Room still functioned as a sort of analog social networking service, Capcom had a little coin-op quarter sucker called 1942 . It was a top-down vertical shooter in which one or two players piloted fighter planes through the Pacific theater of World War II. The game saw four follow-ups before the end of the millennium, but only scattered ports have emerged since then.

1942: Joint Strike Review

8 February 2008
  • Excerpt: The 1942 series has been around for a long time and has seen several arcade and console releases. 1942: Joint Strike is the first game in the series to hit the next gen consoles and it is the first to feature online co-operative play. Joint Strike maintains the series traditional top down 2D shooter gameplay, but updates it with high quality 2D graphics. The game is available on both the Playstation Network and Xbox Live as a download.

1942: Joint Strike

20 August 2008
  • Conclusion: För 1942: Joint Strike är genren i sitt esse, där ursprunget inte är glömt och igenkänningsfaktorn är hög trots högupplöst grafik. Intensiteten känns dock gångad med tusen, eller så har jag blivit för gammal för snabb shoot ’em up-action. Antalet fiender är hysteriskt högt och på de svårare nivåerna är det endast på grund av det faktum att man inte dör av en träff utan istället har en energimätare som blir min räddning.
  • Pros: Intensiteten, nostalgin, utmaningen
  • Cons: Simpelt, kort.
