Excerpt: Captain America: Super Soldier doesn't stray far from the template laid out by Arkham Asylum . This, however, is a positive, although following the same blueprint doesn't always end with the same result. It's the videogame equivalent of a cover band; all the words are there, but the "spark" is missing. Super Soldier is an odd mix of really good and really bad visuals. Captain America, as well as most of the main cast, looks fantastic.
Conclusion: And that was collecting whatever I could, going off the beaten track at every opportunity. I recommend you either pick this up cheap (£5/$8 max) or rent it. For achievement whores, it's as straightforward a max as you'll ever encounter. For everyone else it's a by-the-numbers licenced movie game that doesn't do anything particularly daring but is quite fun while it lasts.
Excerpt: Captain America has been one of my heroes for an eon. He fights for America, and combats evil. In many ways Captain America is what many young men want to be. Especially those that consider joining the military. We had dreams of fighting evil and defeating them. Sure Captain America is not real, and the military has a different life than what the comic books and movies show. But still there is something about Captain America.
Conclusion: More than anything else Captain America: Super Soldier is a short but enjoyable experience. It is a game that comes out during one of the slowest periods of the gaming year and capitalizes on that with a solid outing .This is not a game that will win any year-end awards but is worth at least checking out for those who have a yearning for more Captain America.
Excerpt: The chances are you have experienced Captain America at some point in your life, whether it be the summer’s successful foray in the series of Marvel movie blockbusters or one of the thousands of comics released over the years. Captain America: Super Soldier makes an attempt to put you directly in the shoes of our hero from the other side of the Atlantic, but it’s a fairly bumpy ride and one probably best left to those who love Cap the most.
Excerpt: Captain America: Super Solider could well end up being the best surprise of 2011. It's quite fair to say that SEGA doesn't have a great track record when it comes to its Marvel titles (Thor anyone?), so I went into this expecting the worst. What I got was a heavily Batman: Arkham Asylum inspired action title from Next Level Games which, while a little rough around the edges and clearly in need of its own dose of Super-Soldier serum, is a fun comic-book romp with...
Excerpt: Captain America , however, is a pretty shameless clone of Batman: Arkham Asylum . It's not terribly original, but it looks okay, plays well, and had the sense to steal from the very best. It may be a result of the soft bigotry of low expectations, but I can actually recommend this game. It's a solid C+ if you judge it by the standards of the rest of the games industry, but when compared to most movie tie-ins, it's Citizen Kane .
