  • Summary: Packed with favorites from the movie and comic book worlds, Iron Man 2: The Video Game offers gamers a chance to choose between Iron Man and War Machine, as they battle through hugely destructible indoor and outdoor environments. 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. Iron Man 2 is a decent action game, with nice controls and hundred of enemies to eliminate. Graphically, the armor of Iron Man is well done and the frame rate is fluid and stable, but the stages are poor and lack in detail. Fans of the superhero will probably appreciate.
  2. Iron Man 2 is better than your average movie game but it's still rather short and limited in scope. The visuals are great and the controls work well, but I have a feeling HVS could've done a lot more with the property if they had more time to work on the game.

    If you want to be Iron Man, go get Marvel Ultimate Alliance or something, because this isn’t cutting it.
  4. The Wii game was disappointing at best. The controls aren't problematic, which is the best thing I can say and something that should be expected coming from High Voltage, but everything else about the game just screams quick movie cash-in.
  5. Sega struggled to deliver a compelling superhero experience with the first Iron Man game, but even now, armed with a new developer and second playable hero, the sequel falls similarly flat. [July 2010, p.88]
  6. Rome wasn't built in a day, but Iron Man 2 might have been. The game had potential, but a rushed production and poor craftsmanship diminishes the joy of controlling Iron Man.
  7. Imaginative, entertaining, great visuals, user-friendly controls, bug-free, spicy dialogues. These are all what Iron Man 2 lacks. Save your time and money for any other game. [Issue#192]

    Yeah, it's not really worth playing. The movie it's based on is great, but this is not. So yeah, this game isn't really all that fun. If you MUST have it, then fine. Expand
