  • 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.

    The combat's fun, the plot's well executed and the multimedia's solid. If you don't mind a heavy dose of platforming with your non-gun combat, you won't be disappointed by Captain America.

    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.

    While not a cursed bad game, Captain America: Super Soldier is super short… it's not a complete miss, nor is it a bull's eye.

    Captain America: Super Solider could have been far more entertaining than it turned out to be. The supposed sandbox style setup is actually far emptier and shallower than it should be, and the whole game consists of repeating the self-same combat and timed jumping sections over and over again. You will blitz through Captain America: Super Soldier in five hours and still feel like your time would have been better spent elsewhere. Another movie tie-in 'gem'.

    Captain America: Super Soldier is an enjoyable game, but a limited length and several shortcomings sting where it might have shone.

    Captain America: Super Soldier is too simple, becoming a title only recommended for Cap fans.

    A poorly executed licence product. Nothing super about this at all.

    If you liked Batman: Arkham City, you will like this. An excellent world war 2 adventure which has sets the bar for any other upcoming superhero games. Even if you don't like Captain America in general, the game is still good. With a good plot, okay graphics, and epic boss battles, you will never forget this game. Expand

    Movie related games are almost always dismal. This is often due to the developers not bothering to make an effor, as they assume the hype around the movie eill propel the game Fortunately, Captain America does not fall into that trap. This is a really decent effort. It's not game of the year by any means, but it's a genuinely fun game. Solid mechanics and high production values to be found in abundance Expand

    Anyone who doesn't like this game obviously doesn't know what they are talking about. Ok its not going to win any game of the year awards and the amount of collectibles is laughable. However, if u have any video game skills at all and know how to use combat systems for individual games properly than this game is very fun. Throwing the shield couldn't be more fun and the platforming and swinging parts are some of the best I've seen ( I dare you to find a third person game I havent played, try me!). This game is the building blocks of something great. Other than the Arkham series, this is the best superhero game I've played. Enemies can get slightly repetitive but there are some many animations, beating them up never gets old. I just wanna know of there will be a sequel. I hope no one pays these critics bc they're opinions are terrible and I would never go by what they say !&$& spoiler alert -- no red skull battle? Better be a sequel Expand

    Captain America: Super Soldier isn't dreadful. It's not horribly broken. It's not as bad as Iron Man 2 or Thor. It's just drab, forgettable and a missed opportunity. Roll on the inevitable disappointment of next year's inevitable Avengers game... Expand

    A surprisingly enjoyable 5 hour experience. This game is clearly a budget clone of the Arkham series (especially Asylum), but that doesn't make it bad. The combat is rather excellent in fact. The story is simple, but it holds together and gives you a reason to keep moving forward. The game fails to capitalize on its semi-open world (more like semi-open castle place), but they comes down to 2 things that I'm sure would have been improved with more budget and time. 1) The environmental design leaves a lot to be desired. Lots of re-used assets that were boring to look at the first time you saw them. 2) They have jammed so many meaningless collectibles into the environment it is almost funny (if it wasn't sad). I can't blame the developer, in fact, I commend them. The game is good fun. They clearly picked their priorities with a limited budget and I'd guess they accomplished 90% of what they set out to do (knowing it was a move tie-in game). I can't think of a better movie tie-in game actually. I'd probably compare this to the Wolverine game that came out with the first Wolverine movie, but I probably enjoyed Captain America more. Expand

    While this game does have its share of flaws, it is not too bad, and proves that not all movie to game adaptions are bad. The combat is fun and addictive, and is easy to tell that it is influenced by Batman: Arkham Asylum/City. The graphics are average, the voice acting is pretty rubbish (English accents fail at trying to replicate a German one) and the story is fairly lightweight. However, Captain America is a good beat 'em up, and will please fans of the movie. Expand

    This game is absolutely the worst I've ever played, between framerate drops and terrible writing, animations that would be okay 5 years ago, and the complete lack of compelling gameplay, I think paid way too much when I picked this up out of the bargain bin. I mean come on, this is disgraceful. This game is a great example of how almost every marvel game SEGA has ever made is bad. This game was obviously a complete rush, I'm guessing maybe half a year to make, compared to the normal 2 or more year development cycle great or even average games take to make. Expand
