those looking for an easy platinum, look no further! captain america is that easy platinum.
when playing it's good graphically, and story is good too.
but the backgrounds are not as detailed as say arkham.
and story is not as deep or twisted as arkham.
the game plays, feels, looks, and sounds like a watered down arkham asylum. (which is not a bad thing, because arkahm asylum was a great game) so the source copy material was great to begin with, watered down a little still makes a good game.
much better than thor, better than green lantern. n
this is not really a movie game. this is a totally seperate story.
enjoyable and easy. what you will be doing most of the time.
exploring a castle for collectables (they give you more than you need, some are highlighted on an inscreen map for you, and most are along the necessary path.
occassionally run into 4-8 hench men. there is no trophy for difficulty level, and if you play on easy, they fall down by blowing on them :)
beat 4-5 bosses (cake on easy) thats it, end of game. just a frew challenges that usually take 1 try. 2 or 3 may take you 2 trys.
what you finished the game and missed a collectable! shame on you! well once beaten feel free to roam the castle in free roam, and use the sewers (teleport me to a level) to go where you need to finish off your platinum.
ok got the the idea yet? easy platinum that is good and fun to play so what you waitin for click rent now!
Color me impressed. I took a chance on buying this game based off some youtube videos I've seen. One of the best movie-tie in games I've ever played, but it's not without its faults.
The gameplay is HEAVILY inspired by Batman Arkham Asylum. From the vicious takedowns, various melee attacks and acrobatics, throwing the shield like Batman's boomerang, etc, it draws much from Batman AA. The combat feels extremely fluid.
However, the game does feel slightly rushed to match the timing of the movie release. The frame rate suffers from time to time. Graphics aren't bad, but for this point in next-gen gaming, should look better. It's far from horrible per se, but there is definitely room for improvement.
The game is relatively short. The campaign took roughly 6.5 hours. Adding in collecting artifacts, news reels, schematics etc with the challenge modes, it took around 10 hours total to get the easy platinum trophy. Hard to recommend as a full priced purchase due to the length, this game is perfectly suited towards GameFly.

I'm sure after reading everyone else's reviews, you'll get the idea that Captain America is an entertaining game, but not without a few flaws of course. These can be overlooked because once you start getting into the flow of combat and the endless amount of collectables to discover, you'll notice that minutes of gameplay turn into hours. And yes, just like everyone also has been saying over and over, the gameplay resembles Batman Arkham Asylum. Is Batman the new trend-setter for this type of 3rd person combat now? Just like any game remotely resembling God of War is going to be accused of copying GOW lol
Graphics = Decent
I have to say the gameplay is pretty slow. Cap America moves slow, the reaction times of most enemies are easily predictable because it seems like you have all the time in the world to dodge when you see them coming. Otherwise, it's a decent movie-based game than most...definitely worth renting but i wouldn't buy.
