  • Summary: Captain America: Super Soldier combines a highly athletic combat system with fluid platforming and a highly tuned suite of shield attacks, as Cap explores a massive castle turned military installation. His shield can be employed in numerous ways: taking out multiple enemies at once, deflecting incoming fire back at enemies, solving puzzles, and scaling walls. Players will be able to launch shield-first into the fray with the superior force of the world's first Super-Soldier at their fingertips and they'll need every bit of that strength to overcome a castle that's both an acrobatic playground for the Captain's physical prowess and a house of mystery with enemies and danger at every turn.

    Unfortunately this is one of those games that has been touched by the movie curse which is a shame as the movie was actually quite interesting. But if you enjoyed the movie, you should get a kick out of this and considering the lack of 3DS content, you might want to rent before you buy.

    Captain America: Super Soldier is a fun yet forgettable adventure. Only buy if you're a Marvel nut.

    Captain America: Super Soldier on the 3DS is an experiment gone wrong. With artifically stretches Levels and a monotonous gameplay, it simply grows boring way too fast.

    Captain America: Super Soldier for 3DS has a fair amount going for it. However, for everything it does well, Super Soldier stumbles somewhere else, its most heinous crimes being iffy production values that go so far as to be detrimental to gameplay and a camera that's more maniacally evil than Red Skull himself.

    Captain America fans should only buy this game if they're willing to put up with clunky gameplay and mediocre presentation.

    The 3D judders horribly. [Dec 2011, p.72]

    The obvious conclusion is that Captain America: Super Soldier 3DS is an adaptation of an adaptation. If the adaptation of the movie generally goes wrong, then the adaptation of that adaptation could only be a disaster.

    I must say, I found the game entirely disappointing and will warn both movie and comic books against it. Captain America: Super Soldier hosts a predictable storyline, a repetitive, uninteresting environment, and a series of insipid challenges. It leaves the player unsatisfied and with a haunting sensation of what they could have spent there money on. This game gets old real fast, and just all around isn't worth it. If you must play it, I'd recommend a rental. Expand
