  • Summary: Iron Man, an explosive third-person action shooter game that pits one of the world's most renowned Super Heroes against unspeakable odds, draws its story from the upcoming movie while also incorporating story elements from original Iron Man comic books. Using the advanced technology in Iron Man's suits of armour, gamers can take advantage of the wide array of high-impact weapons to strategically annihilate any enemy force standing in their way. Before tackling stunning and immense open battlefields, players can customise their armour suit as they encounter progressively more vicious enemies, and fight in epic battles that could challenge even the toughest Super Heroes.

  1. Despite some major frustrations with the lack of diversity in gameplay, I did like the game.
  2. 62
    It's fast, fun, and challenging, but you'll have to be a bit accepting to some of the awkward design decisions to get your enjoyment out of Iron Man.
  3. 60
    There's nothing awful about Iron Man for DS, but there isn't really anything that spectacular about it, either. Shmup fans already know they can get great, stylish games online, so this one will probably be left to young fans of the movie.
  4. The DS version trumps the PSP edition, but it's a hollow victory - this is lightweight stuff that many players will find is only entertaining for a worryingly short a period of time.
  5. If you're a huge fan of Iron Man, this version of the game might be worth a rental. But, if you're just looking for a solid action title on the DS, this is not the game for you.
  6. You might think that having a 360-degree shooting radius would make the game easier, but that's offset by the fact that you can be shot by enemies offscreen. [June 2008, p.90]
  7. Getting past the faulty controls will get you a decent story, but Iron Man has little to no replay value, no multiplayer, and is just another forgettable game-based-on-the-movie type.
