While CAPTAIN AMERICA: SENTINEL OF LIBERTY has players step into the boots of the Marvel Comics character -- as he battles the malevolent HYDRA organization during World War II -- this action game lacks originality and longevity. The single-player platformer has you run from the left side of the screen to the right, hopping over or sliding under obstacles (such as tripwires) and tossing your shield like a boomerang to destroy objects in your way (such as landmines). There is some verticality to the levels, too, as you must climb to different floors, slide down ramps, and find well-hidden file folders per level. Combat against enemies can be handled in various ways, such as using your shield as a projectile to stun them, along with multiple punches, kicks, slides, and ways to slam enemies using various finger swipes on the screen. Special moves and combos can be pulled off, too.

While the game is fun, it borrows heavily from other games like Mirror's Edge and Assassin's Creed. Another issue: the game is relatively short at about 24 levels. Shortcomings aside, fans of the Marvel superhero in search for a somewhat fun action game should find Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty a decent download.
