This week Sega announced their Captain America: Super Soldier video game. Yesterday I gave my wacky thoughts on a First Person Shooter WWII game with Captain America. We all know that comic book video games tend to suffer from the same problems. Perhaps it will be possible that this game will differ from others, especially since it's not necessarily a straight movie-game tie in. 
 
Today, CaptainUseless came across this video from New York Comic Con and wanted to share it with all of you. Check it out: 
    

   
The background noise from the convention is a little loud but at least we get a look at the game, not seen in the trailer that was released. What are your thoughts on this? Do you think it has a chance of being excellent?

"Do you think it has a chance of being excellent?"  

Not a one, but it could be passable!

I bet you have to hit the giant glowing green light on his chest.  :P
 
Where is Cap?  Latveria?

There is also some gameplay on gametrailers.com

HA! Is that Arnim Zola at the end! Cool!
 
Looks okay. Not as lame as the Iron Man game, though the shield throwing looks a little crappy

Another poor Movie Based game. Lets hope that Green Lantern and Thor get it right

A Captain America game made in Japan. Not very American. 
Looks like it'll be bad as Sega's Iron Man games.

This looks as terrible as I was expecting it would... Oh well...

#9 Posted by CaptainGenisVell (313 posts) - - Show Bio

the gameplay looked mediocre, it's the actual controls which worry me as IM2's were atrocious as well as the scenes between gameplay.

I hate the idea of the shield returning!!! they need to make the game believeable. if cap throws the shield it should not come back instead it shoud depend on how its thrown. sometimes bouncing close to a return but not a full return, and other times bouncing out of reach in which cap would have to rely on his steller Martial Arts and or "guns" (always feel cap should carry a gun) but never kill people just injure them in the legs and arms. the idea that the Shield always retunrs is kinda stupid and cheezy. it would also drasticly change the way the game is played and make the player use the Shield more smartly instead of throwing it all the time.

won't know til I play the demo.  Doesn't look bad.

@Invincible Iron Man: Its being developed by Next Level Games, which is actually a Canadian developer. Sega's only publishing. Still not exactly "American" though, lol.
#13 Posted by Dark Cell (445 posts) - - Show Bio

ahh all the neg comments, I actually though it looked allright  
 
They have a good walkthrough of the demo on Gametrailers dot com, shows more of the game mechanics n stuff which I though looked not to shabby. 
 
But they should aim for a Batman Arkham asylum kinda combat system I reckon

It might have just been the way the video was shot, but the colors all seemed far too bright for a WWII period piece. The costume doesn't look nearly as good as they've made the classic look come across in the Ultimate Alliance games.

those ground take downs made it look like it wanted to be Arkham Asylum

The thing is, a demo like this is meant to show off something about the game that will make people go "wow", but everything about what we just saw was mediocre at best...

#18 Posted by War Killer (20287 posts) - - Show Bio

Looks pretty good so far, my only complaint at what I did see was Cap's shield being on his back most of the time, it should be on his arm when he's in combat like that. Other than that, from what I saw this looks pretty good, but the fact that it's from Sega puts my hopes down after having played both Iron Man and Iron Man 2, so you can't really blame anyone for low expectations for this. But I still like to have hope, especially since it's a game based solo on Captain America! :D

To be fair it IS a movie game. Mediocre is the best it can be, imo. 
#20 Posted by ImperiousRix (1050 posts) - - Show Bio

Eeeeh, Cap looked a little goofy and I still didn't get a huge grasp on how it'll play, but it looks passable. 
Shield throwing at the very least seems like it'll be fun.

Can't make a call on it seeing as how it still looks like it's the developmental stages, but I gotta say that I like how this Cap looks more like Cap than Cap does in the Captain America movie.

I'm digging the shield throwing.

After watching these demo's, this game looks pretty well done, I'm looking forward to see what the final product looks like when the game is finished, but so far, I'm impressed! ^_^

If you look at the company's past efforts, you'll see that they've only done sports games (mostly Wii) and Spider-Man: Friend of Foe, so it's not surprising that it's not really on par with current games...

Wolverine is always the go to counter to that response, but I seem to recall there was a few other ones. I just can't seem to recall them at the moment. However I agree, as a rule of thumb they all do generally suck and the best you can ever hope for is one that isn't as bad by comparison.

Little Hydra logo on the robot. I'm guessing it's some kind of Sleeper robot, but with the talking and the video console in the chest (or what looks like one), it could be a revamped Arnim Zola.

Sega stopped making good games after the ps3 came out 
 
i just can't get into them like iron man 2 that sucked

The costume is horrible, I hope he has some better lookin' alternate costumes and we need some super guns fit for a super soldier.

#35 Posted by Lvenger (21143 posts) - - Show Bio

It's a good start. Love the shield work but gameplay is slightly sluggish and needs to be improved

Just looks like any other super hero game...

now this is a trailer, X-Men Destiny take notes! Also Hydra's defense protocol is terrible. shouldn't Cap be using more stealth?

I really wanted this game to be awesome... but I kinda doubt that. I know it isn't a game of the movie, but still it is in a certain way. Movie's games never works out. 
Captain America FPS would be awesome, like a Call of Duty or a Battlefield. But this one reminds me of Marvel Ultimate Alliance, that by the way... was horrible.

Shield Throw looks nice, but it may help if there was a path that could show where the shield would go when thrown.

Though its still pretty far from being completed i'm still saying it will bloooooooow

It's not really comic book games that end up badly (hey! I got a handfull of amazing ones on 8, 16 and 32-bits systems!) but movie games :/
 
This is a game adaptation of the upcoming movie with Chris Evans, right? Right?
(I spot a different title!..)

#46 Posted by G-Man (18876 posts) - - Show Bio
@Eyz: I believe it's set in the time but doesn't directly follow the movie. So it looks like yes and no.
#47 Posted by Eyz (3042 posts) - - Show Bio
@G-Man: Well...Last time a game used the movie as template and then went out its way (Iron Man gam)...it didn't end up that well.. :/
But There's still hope for this Captain America game! I mean, it's not that a complicated game to make, no?
Cap' in the past, kickin' nazis asses and stuff~
:D

@Eyz:
I'm not really sure what the problem is. Maybe game developers think people will buy just based on the success of a movie. They've been getting actual comic book writers to write the games. Could it be that they know how to write comics but not how to write a video game? That was Ryan's (from Giant Bomb) thought. Why can't we get a kick ass comic book video game more often?

Heres the problem i have. with the game so far.  
1:caps face/mask is way off.its like they went for the stunt double. 
2:its early developemnt with sega name atached could throw people from it.Mainly because of iron man 2 sega game . 
3:its got a ways to go to be as atmosphiric as a game from November 19, 2001 .. 
  
  for those no faimailr with it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Return_to_Castle_Wolfenstein 
an http://store.steampowered.com/app/9010/ 
realy when i seen the vid for cap 1st thing i thought of was return to castle wolfenstien with capatian america an how cool that would be.same as i did playing it .back in the day. 
its worthy to watch tho.
