  • Summary: This game is supposed to be an "enhanced" remake of 1942. But there's absolutely nothing enhanced. Some levels are taken away. You can't save mid-mission, so once you play the game once, you basically are stuck playing the same short game over and over. If you want real sky shooting, try Aegis Wing.

  • Summary: This game is a must for all fans of classic top-down shooters, and fans of the series. If you like shooters, then you'd be a fool not to grab this one up at the $10 asking price.

  • Summary: Looks ok, plays ok but its too short for the price tag. Can't understand that for such a short game it does not loop back to the start but at a harder level. Basically the game ends when you get through the last level which only takes about 25-30 mins.

  • Summary: If you were a fan of the 80s original arcade game, you will love this new upgrade. It is super fun in short bursts trying to get new high scores. And for only $10 bucks you can't go wrong.

  • Summary: A visually engaging and accessible shooter that will please 1942 fans and casual shooter aficionados alike. 1942 does not have the depth or variety of Ikaruga, but 1942 also is not as punishingly difficult.

  • Summary: Great revival of a classic shooter. Very nice graphics and animation with great attention to detail. Coop play is fun and the gameplay is almost constantly intense.
