Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future is a 2D space shooter.
Based on the '87 TV series Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future, this computer game of the same name sends you into the year 2147. Earth is a wasteland, and the evil Lord Dread rules 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.
None of this matters in the game though. Instead, you launch into two space shooter sequences. Part one, the training mission, has you destroy three Dread drones in a cockpit-view shooting range. Part 2, the Attack on Volcania, is a 2D sidescroller in which you eliminate approaching enemy spaceships. If enough hostiles have died, you get to bomb the enemy lair. The ship-shooting / hideout-bombing sequences are repeated until the fortresses shields are finally down.

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.
