  1. 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.
  2. But even the most generous, gameplay-not-graphics players will have a difficult time locating where the fun and value is in this title because it’s just so sloppily presented and at least ten years behind practically everything else on the market.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Overall, I can only recommend Iron Man 2 only for hardcore fans of the Iron Man series and only for short gaming sessions. There are too many weaknesses in the game, beginning from lousy sound up to pretty bad gameplay.

    If you want to be Iron Man, go get Marvel Ultimate Alliance or something, because this isn’t cutting it.

    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]
  8. 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.

    This is awful. [July 2010, p.61]

    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]
  11. Iron Man 2 for the Wii is another example of how a movie tie-in game can go horribly wrong. It isn't a very technically sound title, as issues with the controls and graphics bring attention to the game's lack of polish.

But yeah, the gameplay is shallow and unabsorbing, the graphics are vomit-inducing, and there's about two days worth of casual gameplay. So, in other words, you can beat it in an afternoon and still have time to go to the movies or something. Seriously though, why on God's green Earth would anyone actually like this game?
