    Captain America: Super Soldier

    Make no mistake, Captain America isn't a special movie-liscenced game. It's just another run-off-the-mill movie tie.in.

    I bought Captain America a couple of days ago, when I went to gamespot to trade-in some games of mine to get some pre-orders. I saw the box of this game, and it's price-tag : 49,99. I said, what the heck, and took the pl... Read Full Review

    Dead to Rights Retribution is an odd reboot to the franchise. But the sum of its parts don't make up for its price tag.
