Captain America: Super Soldier video game is set to be released Tuesday, July 19. Although early buzz for the game seemed promising, the clips released in March told a different story. The gameplay video featured a bland environment, coupled by tons of similar looking bad guys. Unfortunately, reports from E3 did little to change that opinion. Still, despite all this I’m hoping the developers are saving some surprises for the official release. As of now, however, Captain America: Super Soldier looks to recreate the same dull third person action that we’d expect from a movie tie-in. This is unfortunate because America’s hero deserves so much more.
Personally I’d like to see something more than just upgradable powers and beat ‘em up action. Really, anything unique that could set this game apart from other comic book/movie tie-ins would be a breath of fresh air. As far as I can tell the combat looks like a knock-off of Batman: Arkham Asylum, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing as long as the game has its own identity. For now we can only cross our fingers and hope for a pleasant surprise.
Check out the trailer below while you wait for the official release next week.
