- "1942 music" (by Dr. Spa, 17 Jun 2004) [2/10]
Repetetive and boring.
- "Below average" (by abelkadabel, 10 Sep 2004) [3/10]
Although I loved the soundtrack while playing this classic on my c64, I have to say that this tune are a bit below average.
- "Nostalgic" (by 2001RealMillennium, 9 Dec 2004) [5/10]
Well I played 1942 on the C=128 (in C=64 emulation mode) and I recall the music was nice. Alas this .mod I downloaded doesn't sound much like the original. I can recognize the tune (which is short and repeats endlessly as is apropriate for a silly arcade game) but if memory serves me it sounded better on the C=128. I'll check someday, have to blow the dust off the old C=128.
- "Theme inspired from ..." (by Sabal Do'Ghym, 26 Nov 2010) [5/10]
The music of the Commodore 64 version is based on the main verse of Ron Goodwin's 633 Squadron movie score
