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: 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.
