Using the advanced technology in IronIron 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.
  2. 50
    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 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

    THIS GAME SUCKS!!!! I hope its better on xbox or ps3 cuz the camera is impossibly difficult and stupid and sucks ass. I wasted 30$ to beTHIS GAME SUCKS!!!! I hope its better on xbox or ps3 cuz the camera is impossibly difficult and stupid and sucks ass. I wasted 30$ to be annoyed and dissapointed this game looks as plain and unimaginative as any UNFINISHED DEMO would,. THATS RIGHT IM COMPARING THIS SUPPOSEDLY COMPLETED GAME TO AN UNFINISHED IDEA. The dumb bastard wont even shoot in the right direction! he doesnt fire his weapon based on enemies around him or what direction HE IS FACING but what direction the hell spawn CAMERA is facing! and YOU PAIN STAKINGLY have to constantley keep the camera in check and control it with your R3 thumb or you will be staring at a walll or some other god forsaken horrible angle for more than half the time. Iron man operates like 2d glitch in a polygon 3d world. THats right I said poltgon THE GRAPHICS ARE TERRRIBLE! This game has to be the first draft they through together and push out just to slap somthing on ps2, or maybe they made it suck soooo bad on purpose so you HAVE to go buy a NExt Gen system. But its not Fair to ps2 gamers THERE WAS NO LOVE OR EFFORT PUT INTO THIS HORRIBLE PEICE OF CRAP. Id rather have diareeah and watch history channel all night than to pull my hair out over handicapped and absolutley RETARDED game mechanics. not too mention bad bad bad graphics and an annoying voice proprlled plot that traps you in to its story and doesnt let you skip ahead! THE first levels are baby step tutorials like wiggle the stick and now jump, and all your other basic moves like a simple punch are disabled until you fufill the games stupid kindergarden gamer school request.Its half made for retarded kids, half made to make you angry, and half made BY retarded kids. Liked the movie! The movie is GOOD! but This game will make you want to write SEGA A NASTY LETTER and DEMAND YOUR MONEY BACK! Collapse
