  • 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.

    Iron Man is strictly about the suit. It's almost like the video game was based entirely around the suit, with a few levels thrown in for good measure.

    The levels are linear, the visuals are ho-hum, the story is lame and the cutscenes are bad. This game doesn't excel at anything.
  3. One of the poorest movie tie-ins to date, IM: TOV is ugly, tedious, boring and broken. [June 2008, p.60]
  4. Enough effort was put into the gameplay and graphical design to keep it from crashing and burning, but not enough to inject it with any sort of life or appeal.
  5. 42
    I hesitate to say that Iron Man is dumbed down for the Wii, PlayStation 2, and PSP, since hardware limitations likely necessitated such a distinct iteration, but the resulting experience is a by-the-numbers affair unlikely to rouse most action fans.
  6. In case you’re not interested in Tony Stark’s adventures, there are much better games.
  7. Even fans of the comic won’t have fun with this piece. At the beginning, the permanent explosions are quite entertaining, but soon they get as boring as the monotony of a firing machine gun. No, thanks!

    It's a game which has big open world bits, in them is boring objectives, finish the open world bits to listen to tony stark make lame jokes, watch the credits. It's that simple, it's that boring, and really should have been better. I would like anyone who considers buying this game to instead buy batman. Expand
