Price: $4.99User Rating:
Happening more and more: a movie tie in game’s app. Not all of them are a welcome addition to the movie though: Captain America sentinel of liberty runs (and runs) through 24 levels fighting the evil forces of HYDRA, but the controls are sluggish and gameplay is kinda dull…..
Captain America sentinel of liberty is all about fighting: you can throw your shield at the bad guys, or clobber them, or kick their lights out. All good and gameplay is fluent. Along the way there are all kinds of hazards, such as booby traps and bombs and trip lasers that send in more bad guys. What I thought was kinda funny is that you can earn extra outfits for The Captain (is it me or is that less than masculine?). There are three locations, and each location has eight different levels. If you want to get all the loot you’ll probably have to revisit levels, which can be a teensy weensy bit tedious.
A few people have already remarked that this game looks an awful lot like the Mirror’s Edge app, which at the game’s original price of $4.99 may make you feel like you’re being ripped off just a little bit. Also it’s great they hired an actor to say the Captains lines but couldn’t they have given him more? And why doesn’t the game have the remotest ting to do with the movie? That would’ve been fun, right? Actually, even at the current 80% discount I still say: BORING.
We rate this app 2 out of 5 stars
