Captain America and The Avengers es un título normalito de lucha callejera cuyo mayor atractivo es la licencia de Marvel. Resulta entretenido jugarlo con un amigo para manejar a la Visión o Iron Man para enfrentarse a un centinela o a un montón de enemigos clónicos, pero a la larga se vuelve repetitivo y anodino. Gráficos simples, música sin personalidad, control poco fluido... Cabe añadir que la versión arcade o y la de Super Nintendo resultan superiores, por los gráficos mejorados con más detalles, escenas entre acto y acto, mayor reto al jugar, acción más fluida y la posibilidad de jugar con tres amigos más.
The Video Game Critic
This game packs no less than twelve different boss characters, my favorite being a hulking robot that fills the screen in stage two. The beginning of stage two plays more like a shooter as you fly through the air while inexplicably blasting flying scuba divers spiraling out of control. The text dialogue provides an unexpected entertainment bonus, serving up dramatic exchanges like: "You can't escape!" "You will be the one escaping!" Marvel comic fans will also appreciate how obscure elements of the comics have been incorporated into the game. For example, during the shooting stages you're accompanied by a tiny character named Wasp. On the whole Captain America and the Avengers is average fare, but comic fans can probably bump up the grade by a letter.
Defunct Games
Captain America and the Avengers can be a lot of fun with a friend alongside, but most serious gamers should just avoid this disappointment. There isn't a whole lot here to grab on to, which is probably why it's not as fondly remembered as Konami's X-Men. Captain America, Hawkeye, Iron Man and even Vision deserve better than this.
Power Play
Möglicherweise haben die Programmierer von Captain America and the Avengers das Mega Drive mit einem Master System verwechselt. Nur so kann ich mir das Ruckeln, die farbarme Grafik und das schreckliche Geflacker erklären – insbesondere im Zwei-Spieler-Modus. Nur die Musik verwöhnt den Spieler mit gelungenen Kompositionen. Doch das allein kann nicht über die häßlichen Grafiken, das witzlose Spielprinzip und die erbärmliche Programmierung hinwegtrösten.
Data East's abysmal superhero cash-in is one of those titles where the worthlessness of the adventure is established from the very first level. It's a mess of boredom, stupidity and hilarity that encapsulates Captain America and the Avengers, marching you through waves of dull attackers so you can fight Whirlwind. "You can't escape!" exclaims Captain America before this battle, to which Whirlwind senselessly responds: "You will be the one escaping!" But the only one wanting to escape this rubbish will be you.
