1942 is one of the first shoot-em-up video games of it's generation, and one of the best I have played in my childhood and in my teens once again. This game takes place during World War II, when the United States fights against the Japanese after the attack on Pearl Harbor which occurred 70 years ago. Now this game gets harder and beastly the more you progress, and now it's time to review this great classic game.
Plot. 1942, the year in which the United States joins the Allied Forces (United Kingdom, France, U.S.S.R) against the Axis Powers (Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and Imperial Japan) in World War II, one of the world's greatest conflicts of all time. In this game, a pilot who flies the plane named Super Ace (modeled after a Lockheed P-38 Lightning), must achieve his goal of flying into Tokyo and destroy the entire Japanese fleet.
