Sega has displayed the actual suit, as well as the mighty shield, from the movie "Captain America: The First Avenger" as a tie-in for its Captain America: Super Soldier game. The display is actually pretty impressive. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the game.

The game feels too linear. From the snippets I've played, there is no exploring and at times it feels like your character is being too directed. 

Despite what the developers say, the game is a basic room-to-room button smash fest. I normally like that, but Captain America has limited moves -- punch, kick, shield attacks and dashes.

Captain America's best ability in the game is his athleticism. Captain America is an acrobat, swinging and hopping from ledges and walls. He is also able to deliver massive attacks in midair.
