  1. If you can get past Iron Man’s head-scratching learning curve, what are you left with? A game that’s far from perfect, but still better than a lot of movie and comic book tie-ins that have come before ( *wink* Catwoman).
  2. Overall, the Iron Man title on the Wii lacked the spark that the film had; however, it’s a huge step up from last year's A2M film franchise adaptation, known as The Golden Compass. That said, if players are looking for a film to game adaptation that actually reflects the film, they should look elsewhere.

    If you're expecting this to be more than the average licensed game, though, you'll be a bit let down. [June 2008, p.88]

    Webster's New World College Dictionary Fourth Edition defines bland as "tasteless, insipid, dull, etc." I describe bland as "Iron Man."
  5. 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.

    Iron Man is your classic film tie-in; it reeks of under-development and simply isn't worth your time or money.
  7. It may come as no surprise to you to hear that Iron Man is a poor game, everything about it just screams mediocre, unfortunately at this rate we may never see a decent movie/game tie-in because for every one that is half decent follows another twenty that are for want of a better word, garbage.
