'Captain America: Super Soldier' Is Basically 'Batman: Arkham Asylum'

MTV Multiplayer writes: "Sega's last two attempts to make a Marvel super hero game were two mediocre "Iron Man" releases which failed to crack 50% on Metacritic. Clearly something wasn't working with the formula, so Sega's decided to try something new for 2011's "Captain America: Super Soldier." They've brought in a new developer, Next Level Games, whose previous successes include "Punch-out!!" for Wii and the "Mario Strikers" series. They've also decided to examine how other super hero video games have succeed and follow that formula as closely as possible."

My only issue with a captain american game is the diversity. Is Captain America a diverse enough character to a player entertained? Batman has gadgets, but the Captain only has a shield.

The combat looked IDENTICAL to Batman, even the same moves. They need to really up the ante if they want a competitor super hero game similar to Batman:AA.

Agreed...Plus I don't think Captain america is as popular comic character as a Batman.

Sharingan_no_Kakashi2986d ago (Edited 2986d ago )

yes he is. Among the general public? Not even close. Batman has lots of movies and is really popular with the ladies. I havent met a girl yet whose favorite hero isnt Batman. Captain America just hasnt gotten the big screen treatment needed to be as popular among non comic readers as Batman. Oh well,.......... he's got my vote at least.

On a side note it's usually DC that tries to copy Marvel, so I find this a bit ironic.

@ExgamerLegends is right amongst the comic book community Steve Rogers is huge. That doesn't mean it will translate to the public.
But His Sheild will offer up some interesting game play if done properly, I'd like to see what they do with that aspect of the game.

"My only issue..."

Mine is that this is being made by the developers of Iron Man......failure alert!

JsonHenry2986d ago

So it is basically really good then? :)

unknownhero11232986d ago

we'll see. you can copy things and still get a crappy game. honestly, I'm not holding my breath for this.

likedamaster2986d ago

Being like Batman:AA is definitely NOT a bad thing. Having a different character and especially someone like the Cap'n is even better.

dragonyght2986d ago

lol they trying to ride on Arkham Asylum AAA success thats a bad sign

Chromer2986d ago

If they decide to follow AA's model for making a superhero game, we can have a pretty decent game that just feels like AA. That doesn't sound exactly bad to me.

So its "basically" an amazing game?....meh, not so much. Doubt it.

HOSe2986d ago

it takes place in/around a castle.. wtf?

dorron2986d ago

Maybe it's not Batman:AA but if it's 75% good in reviews it should be interesting to try it out. I remember having a hell of a good time with Wolverine's game too!
