Tony and Rhodey both come equipped with their own distinct assortments of fully customizable, earth-shattering weapons, as well as vicious melee combat moves, all of which will come in handy against the likes of Crimson Dynamo and other classic Marvel foes.

  1. Superhero games are supposed to be power fantasies. So far, the Iron Man games haven't done much to inspire my dreams, but at least they're not giving me nightmares anymore. If Sega keeps tweaking the formula, next time it might actually convince me that it's fun being Iron Man.
  2. A twisted shrine to mediocrity. [Aug 2010, p.104]
  3. Iron Man 2 limps onto the scene for several game platforms and is a rusted heap on arrival. The bit of fun to be had does not out weigh the not so fun aspects of the game.
  4. The best thing about Iron Man 2 are the cut scenes, where some competent writing and voice acting makes the game seem like it just might be worth ploughing through, even though it isn’t.

    Iron Man 2 the movie is pretty cool, but the game is the complete opposite. The graphics are poor and look like those of a PlayStation 2 game and the audio isn’t great either. The gameplay is repetitive and there is no atmosphere in the game. Don’t buy this game, it’s too bad and that’s a shame.
  6. One of the worst games this year so far - a soulless movie tie-in with a broken control scheme, crappy graphics, repetitive missions and a terrible story. Just stay away from this heap of rusty scrap metal and go see the movie instead.
  7. This could possibly be the worst hero game since Superman 64.

    i know, i know, why an 8/10?!! this game is one of the most fun in my collection, especially for trophy hunters like me. the gameplay isi know, i know, why an 8/10?!! this game is one of the most fun in my collection, especially for trophy hunters like me. the gameplay is excellent, that is what makes the 8 in the score. however, the graphics are HORRIBLE and there is a lot of lag whenever a cutscene wants to start. i would have given the iron man 2 movie a 9/10. But this game is still really fun (at least in my opinion) Expand

Everything about this screams garbage. I would get locked on to stuff in the distance while trying to kill enemies right next to me. The camera was the worst of the whole game. This game should only be played if you are a trophy hunter but even then it's a maybe. They are easy to unlock but the game is a headache. Expand
