It's no secret that I am a comic book superhero fan. Superhero games, then, are usually quite enjoyable for me. Lego Batman came out just this past week; we picked it up, and love it. Over the summer, for a Co-Op night, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance was the game of choice, and I was happy. Way back in the first Co-Op Classics, we looked at my all time favorite, X-Men: The Arcade Game. This gem of a game was even mentioned in the most recent Co-Opticast. Today, we'll dig a little deeper for a title that wasn't quite so memorable, but was still a favorite of mine: Captain America and the Avengers.
When I was growing up, I was a bit of a Marvel zombie. Batman and Superman were just not my cup of tea, and the Marvel books were just way more interesting, during the 80s, at least. I collected and still own large runs of Iron Man, Thor, the Avengers (East and West Coast!) and all the crossovers I could get my hands on. So, one day back in 1991, when I saw this brand new arcade game, I just about freaked out and ran to the change machine.
