Description of Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future

Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future is yet another awful action game from Box Office, this time based on a 1987 TV series of the same name. The plot of the TV series goes as follows: in the year 2147, the evil Lord Dread rules Earth with an iron hand. Only a small group of high-tech soldiers under the command of the charismatic Captain Power battles the nemesis and his band of Bio Dread henchmen.

Fans of the original – and any gamer for that matter – will be disappointed with this Real Dog. The game is just a lackluster shooter slapped on with the Captain Power name, without bothering to make use of the series’ main characters or anything else. You play the game from 3 perspectives: first-person space shootout in the first scenario, 2D side-scrolling shooter in the second, and finally a bombing sequence in the third and final part. The 2D sequence is the only that’s marginally interesting, but even that is very repetitive and tedious.

If I didn’t know any better, I could have sworn Box Office and Capstone were run by the same people who specialized in wasting precious TV/movie licenses. This is one to avoid, unless playing a boring shooter if something you’re looking for.

Aw come on! JMS is not that bad.

..."Awful" is an understatement. More of a "Defender" ripoff than anything. Makes you wonder if JMS had anything to do with it, because it's just as lame as his writing was for the "Captain Power" series. Hard to believe that hack managed to produce something as worth watching as "Babylon 5"!
