    It's a simple game, but still engaging and fun. With good graphics and better control, fans of the movie should give this title a try.

    If you’re a fan of endless runners and can put up with the game constantly asking you to post to Facebook or purchase more ISO-8, then you find this a fun diversion while you wait in line to see Iron Man 3 in theaters.

    The overall lack of accessibility knocks Iron Man 3 down several pegs, but considering the unimpressive history of superhero video games, this one still manages to shine, with its intense flying, daily challenges and fan service. Money improves this title considerably, but you don't need to spend it to have a decent time.

    Iron Man 3 is a fun free game and a very solid diversion, but slow progress saps its long-term appeal.

    Gameloft’s Iron Man 3 is not too bad, but it’s not the kind of game you will remember for ages. Considering such a powerful Hollywood franchise, creating an endless runner instead of a sandbox could be seen like a big waste. Especially when you find out that there are many endless runners better than this.

    Iron Man 3 – The Official Game (Free, Universal) delivers a great feel for playing as Iron Man, but that wears off after a few redundant flights. The base gameplay just doesn’t do enough to make you care to keep going to reach the minimal story elements, and new environments.

    This isn’t a “decent” endless game. Even the less than impressive ones understand the importance of being able to start a new game quickly. And making players have to wait and/or pay to repair their suits so they can get back to it faster only makes it that much more insulting.

    This game has really improved since its launch, both in content and in gameplay. The freemium aspect was dumbed down overall and it makes for a huge difference. It is really enjoyable when you start getting the hang of it and remember to close all running apps, as it is memory heavy. Don't be fooled, though, you'll probably enjoy this game the most if you are the completionist kind. Expand

    This free movie tie-in game does fan-service right by having classic characters from the Iron Man fiction, but it stumbles when it comes to gameplay. It's an infinite-runner with next to no plot, but has classic villains and decent graphics. The game starts off interesting enough, but when you actually start to spend some time with it you begin to realize that it's just not a polished enough experience to be worth keeping around for more than the 15-20 minutes it takes to see what it has to offer. As typical in infinite-runners you spend most of your time dodging obstacles. This is easier said than done thanks to the awkward controls. Tilting with the gyroscope controls works well, but the touch screen controls are worthless allowing you to either tap the screen or slide your finger across it. Tapping the screen is inaccurate and can be disorientating do to the speed of it, and sliding your finger isn't fast enough to allow you to dodge objects. So stick to the gyroscope controls for this one. When you're not dodging objects you're shooting enemies, which is also awkward thanks to inaccurate touch screen controls. Boss battles can be fun but they don't save this game. The whole experience is just way to mediocre for me to recommend, and when you consider how everything from repairing and upgrading your armor is tied to a timer that the game encourages you to spend a special in game currency (that can be purchased with real money, go figure), and this game just isn't worth your time no matter how free it is. It might be worth a look to the Iron Man super fan, just don't expect to spend any real time with it. Expand
