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...
Excerpt: All in all, Captain America: Super Soldier for the DS is, as might be expected, your typical licensed movie tie-in game. There are enough good ideas here to keep it from being utter trash, but just barely.
Pros: Variety in stages keeps things fresh…ish.
Cons: Reeks of being obligatory lip-service to the DS’s crazy-huge install base.
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.
Conclusion: As movie tie-in games go - especially on the DS, Captain America: Super Soldier is an admirable title. Although the visuals aren’t outstanding, they rarely are on the Nintendo handheld. The audio though, is quite good for the DS, with the dramatic music score is a highlight.
Conclusion: Gage wrote his original story for Captain America: Super Soldier so that the setting coincides with the upcoming movie of the same name, but he infused the game with immersive twists designed to enhance gameplay alongside all-new cinematic action sequences.
