Captain America: Super Soldier Review
12 January 2012
Summary: " Captain America: Super Soldier " is an uninspired licence that borrows some great ideas from other games but fails to execute on them. Its short falls in execution will be a disappointment for fans of the Captain, but if you are desperate for a portable hit of red, white and blue try the iPhone game, its actually good.
Excerpt: SEGA's latest super hero game, CAPTAIN AMERICA: SUPER SOLDIER allows gamers to play the role of the red, white and blue hero "Captain America" as he takes on the nefarious Red Skull and his off-shoot of Nazis. It's a classic third person action game but with the inclusion of 3D. With that said, the 3D and special effects of this game actually looks rather impressive.
Excerpt: Stop me if you’ve played this game before. Superhero goes to an island full of bad guys planning large-scale chaos. Rhythmically flipping between each as he goes, he beats up five or ten henchmen at a time. Along the way, he fights a line-up of his classic rogue's gallery, uses a special vision mode to scan his environment, climbs around the place like a ninja, unlocks various powerups, and picks up all manner of meaningless doodads.
Excerpt: Captain America: Super Soldier has spread itself across nearly every platform (and in fact would have been on them all had the PC and PSP versions not been cancelled) and ties into the plot of the recent Captain America: The First Avenger movie, chronicling one of the clashes between the all-American hero and his Invader allies against the Red Skull’s Hydra Army.
Excerpt: With Captain America: First Avenger due in cinemas this month it's no surprise to see a tie-in hitting the shelves. Sadly, Super Soldier follows the template of many a tie-in – it looks pretty, but lacks content to back it up. A third-person adventure, you control the eponymous (or not) captain, modelled well on Chris Evans, as he goes about whupping Nazi ass in 1940s Germany – in a story spun off from the film.
Summary: Serviceable platforming and challenging combat in Captain America: Super Soldier is hampered by a frustrating difficulty curve, repetitive enemy types and some segments that the game could simply do without. Its positive features make this worth checking out for any Cap fan out for a decent time that will last longer than you might expect of a movie tie-in, so while it won't make you commit treason, neither will it make you pin a tiny American flag to your lapel.
