This is yet another week where Nintendo uploads a game we already had on the Virtual Console. This is not the first time we've seen 1942, a couple years ago we had the chance to buy the NES version. This arcade game is better, but you should be careful and not double up. Despite some reservations, I like 1942. It's not the perfect 2D shooter, but it gets enough right to recommend.

1942 isn't much of an improvement over Exed Exes, offering only a small amount more entertainment and dragging on a bit too long. It's nice to see how the 19XX series started, but if you're not really nostalgic about them it's probably best to simply wait for the sequels, as each of them is better than this one.
