Captain America Super Soldier Review

Looks terrible but plays okay

Captain America is similar to the recent Wii Transformers game - it looks like someone was sick on a battlefield and it's too short.

Unlike Transformers however, this does offer some solid gameplay.

First things first though. The graphics are unacceptable, especially since it was developed by High Voltage, who often harp on about the visuals in their Conduit games. Environments are dull and the Cap'n himself runs like he's smuggling woodland creatures in his tights.

Bat's The Way To Do It

Get past that and you have a game that tries its best to rip off the good bits from Batman: Arkham Asylum.

Combat is interspersed with reversals and fancy slow-motion bits, you gain experience which can be spent on enhanced abilities and you can fling your shield Batarangstyle to stun enemies.

Ultimately though, its length and lack of replay value mean you should probably rent it instead.

    Why are Xbox/PS3 pictures mixed with the Wii pictures? Some people might get confused and disappointed when they realise what it really looks like.

    I wondered why the difference in quality between pictures was so huge...

    No offence to zelda, but it does look like a zelda game with more up to date features... but thats just my opinion

    Same as said above , it's really odd that there are screenshots from other platforms mixed in .

    Was a good review though , think we all new this would be a bit of a stinker :)

    I'm annoyed that you mentioned the graphics more than the gameplay.
