  • 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.

Great arcade retro remake

  • Summary: I'm a big fan of these old school shooters and this one is a great remake. Feels like the old arcade, but with a nice twist, and has co-op play too. A definite must have for Xbox Live Arcade!

  • 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.
