  • 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. Were this a non-licensed product, it would be a below-average action title with little to recommend. The fact that it stars a popular super hero definitely helps, as does the passable plot and enjoyable script, making Iron Man 2 a title that’s just barely worth playing.
  2. A twisted shrine to mediocrity. [Aug 2010, p.104]
  3. Iron Man 2 seeks to outperform its predecessor with improved gameplay, better graphics and a bigger universe seen in the comic books. Despite being a funny game, it doesn't meet the minimum required for the current generation and remains halfway in all aspects. Only for fans of Iron Man and Marvel Comics heroes.
  4. The score is deceptive. There are worse superhero games you could be playing. In the end, though, there aren't any secrets that don't apply to gamplay so there's not much reason to revisit this.
  5. A typical videogame tie-in that will last no longer in the public's memory than the film. Play it if you must, but don't say we didn't tell you so. [Issue#60, p.99]
  6. A poor-quality marketing tie-in. [July 2010, p.81]
  7. 16
    Sega Studios San Francisco's final game, Iron Man 2, based on this summer's movie, combines the worst pitfalls of both genres, leaving me with one simple conclusion: Iron Man 2 the videogame is not for anybody.

    Beware, I can almost promise you you'd be better off burning your money. A game with such a cliched gameplay it's annoying, so you have a BAD time playing it, so yes, you would actually be better off burning your money, in a pit of fire. The controls are terrible, while the graphics are pretty good, but not appealing enough to average out this mess. Expand

    ok this is something so bad you would be better off just throwing your money into the fireplace to use as firewood. when that is a better use of money then buying this game you know something is awful
    pros: well it is 1000 times better then the first iron man game which had nothing good
    cons: really short, bad gameplay, single player WTF, gamecube graphics, terrible CGI, war machine had more useful stuff for me so playing as IRON MAN was pointless, bland voice acting, story
