Review of Captain America: Super Soldier for Xbox 360

Is Captain America: Super Soldier just another movie tie-in game, or does it bring something fun and above average to the table? Read on to find out!

Sound: Even though the actor from the movie, Chris Evans, voices his in-game counterpart, that’s just not enough to save this title from a weak musical scores and generally mediocre (with some exceptions) voice-acting. Sound: 5.5/10

Presentation: When it comes to visuals, this game has a fair amount of ups and downs. The ups are that the action sequences are well choreographed and the scenary represents World War II-era architecture impressively, but the downs are that character models move stiffly, camera angles are sometimes a problem and the overall graphic quality of the game could be more polished. Presentation: 6.5/10

Gameplay: Captain America excels when it comes to combat. You start with a simplistic control scheme and combat system, but the game spices up when you throw Captain’s shield into the mix, adding a fun and unique element into the gameplay. The platforming sections are a bit of a letdown, though, with everything consisting of tapping one button in a QTE (quick-time event) format. Aside from those two things, there are also the occasional puzzles which are fun at first, but eventually grow stale. In the end though, the combat is fun enough that you’ll want to keep on playing to the very end. Also, one additional little thing I noticed while playing is that unlike most movie tie-ins, this game sports gigantic non-linear maps and loads of collectables , which really shows the developer’s effort and pleasantly surprised me. Gameplay: 9.5/10

Multiplayer: N/A

Length: On my first playthrough, I beat this game in just under four hours. So this is definitely not a long game by any standards. Length: 3.5/10

Overall: Captain America gets 6.3 golden stars out of 10. Although it isn’t the most polished game, and it can be completed in a very small amount of time, I still recommend renting it just for the amazing gameplay.
