Like other late 80s plastic-bodied SLRs of its type, its plastic construction belies its capabilities.
This camera will give you the manual, aperture priority, shutter priority, and program exposure modes which were developed throughout earlier decades; it also delivers multiple metering modes which are, as a rule, substantially more sophisticated than what some of those earlier stylish chrome bodies can offer. See link to Canon's website at the end of this listing for full details.
Bonus: this camera uses EF-mount lenses. If you already own full-frame EF lenses that you use with a DSLR, most or all of your lenses should be transferable. You should always check specific compatibility lens by lens and body by body, but if you enjoy shooting both film and digital (or are digital-only with a stable of EF lenses), this cross-compatibility lets you put the money you would have needed to spend on new lenses into film instead.
Per Canon, "Developed as the high-end version of the EOS 650, the EOS 620 has the following features not found in the 650: Shiftable program AE, autobracketing up to ±5 stops in 1/2-stop increments, maximum of 9 multiple exposures, and uniform EL illumination (the world’s first on a camera) of the external LCD panel."
