YMMV / 1942

  • Crowning Music of Awesome — Of note especially is 1944's hard rock soundtrack.
  • Ear Worm — The March of Midway, featured in 1942.
  • First Installment Wins — No one seems to have heard of 19XX or 1944. It doesn't help that they're the only arcade games thus far without rereleases or ports.
  • Porting Disaster — The NES port of 1942 has a very poor framerate and an even more annoying rendition of the March of Midway. This was due to Capcom outsourcing the port to a small company called Micronics, who also did their Ghosts and Goblins NES port.
