    Classic Game Room - 1943: THE BATTLE OF MIDWAY for NES Review


    by ClassicGameRoom

    Classic Game Room was the FIRST classic video game review show on the Internet in 1999. Returning in 2008 with new episodes, Classic Game Room breaks out a review of 1943: THE BATTLE OF MIDWAY on the Nintendo Entertainment System NES. What a SHMUP in the SHMUPS genre! The sequel to the classic Capcom arcade hit, 1942 (released to the arcades in 1984), 1943 featured familiar vertical scroller shooting game action. This shoot em up allows you to play as the hero airplane pilot against waves of enemy bad guys in their fighters, bombers and battleships. 1943 came out in the arcades and saw life on the NES in 1988 with this excellent port of an excellent game. It has similar sounds to Bionic Commando in the NES and similar gameplay to 1942: Joint Strike on the Xbox 360 Live Arcade or PS3. In fact CGRHD reviewed 1942 Joint Strike and gave it high marks for being one of the best shooters out there right now. 1943 is easily on of the best vertical scrolling airplane games on the Nintendo and I used the NES Advantage joystick to get this footage. Oddly enough the original Battle of Midway took place in 1942 and starred Charlton Heston. Many sequels have been made including 1944 The Loop Master. Classic Game Room was the original classic video game review show on the Internet in 1999-2000, now on DVD. The reviews on the HD series are reviewing PS3, PS2, Genesis, NES, Atari and Xbox 360.
