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.

    A twisted shrine to mediocrity. [Aug 2010, p.104]
  3. If you enjoyed the movie, the game may potentially be worth a wait, but as with most movie game tie-ins, the game just isn’t up to scratch and will no doubt be found in the bargain-bin in a shop near you soon.
  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. Iron Man 2 suffers from the same lack of energy as the first game, and despite a few interesting ideas, comes up short. Save your cash and go see the movie instead.

    A poor-quality marketing tie-in. [July 2010, p.81]
  7. This could possibly be the worst hero game since Superman 64.

    Iron Man 2
    about what you would expect.
    Iron Man 2 is an action shooter game where you can play as either iron man or war machine, some missions you even switch between the 2,
    This is your standard budget tie in game, the voice acting is bad, the story is just background noise, controls feel too floaty, and its insanely repetitive.
    Iron Man 2 is fun though in spots, this is a very short game, only 8 missions, the entire game won’t last you longer than 5 hours.
    Each mission has a new objective and setting so the levels do feel fresh, you won’t get bored.
    But the gameplay doesn’t switch up at all, it’s a back and forth between defend allies and get to each checkpoint activate the thing and kill everything in your way.
    The game would have been much better without the defending sections, they drag on way too long, and if you get ahead of the slow moving allies you automatically have to restart from the last checkpoint, it’s annoying... you can freely fly or land on the ground in iron man 2 in any and all moments, but flying can be a little too fast so by time you’re warned you’re too far ahead, it’s too late to stop yourself.
    Combat though is fun, you’re given a variety of weapons that take just a tad too long to reload without the option to manually reload...you’re given freedom on the weapons you use, and hold up to 4 at a time, but this slow reload time, and only being able to carry 1 to a couple shots in a clip handcuffs you into using quicker weapons with less damage in one of your slots
    Iron Man is also given a bonus chest blast attack, but both war machine and iron man have a special fury move that either brings out a gun that does insane damage, or makes you invincible, I honestly never really used this because the game does a poor job of explaining it, you’re told it’s there, but there’s no explanation of when you can use it, or some sort of indicator that sticks out to tell you your meter is full… there is an indicator, but it matches the color of your health, which leads you to having to actively look for it if you’re curious….poor design for a game where taking your eye off an enemy can lead to your death
    At the end of every mission you’re awarded points to spend on weapons and upgrades, you’re also awarded new suits of iron man’s past that you can freely wear in game.
    Iron man 2 is fun at times, completing the objectives, finding what I’m looking for in buildings, blasting at enemies while I explore the land... it has its moments... it’s just a shame that these moments only make up about 30% of the game.. The rest of it is a boring drag
    With there being nothing here but a mind numbing time... no good story, no real level design... there’s no reason to ever play this game
    Well, maybe trophies.

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. Collapse

    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 useok 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
