  1. The movie is good; the game is not, so save yourself the heartache, the pain, and a few hours. I, on the other hand, was not so lucky, but that's life.

    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.

    This is every bit the under-developed movie tie-in. [Aug 2008, p.63]
  5. 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!
  6. A depressing, boring, frustrating mess, 'Iron Man: The Official Videogame' is nothing short of abysmal. Wait for the film to come out on DVD.

    If Iron Man Wii looked better and played smoother it would at least be bearable. But it doesn't and it isn't. [Issue#23, p.62]
