This brand-new tale will take gamers deeper into the Iron Man comic world, adding to the excitement of the upcoming Marvel and Paramount Studios film. Iron Man 2 exclusively offers fans a chance to play against enemies such as the unforgettable Crimson Dynamo, not found in the film. Iron Man 2's original plotline sees Tony Stark gifting the world with new technology in order to make it a better place. However, his philanthropic nature isn't enough to keep the bad guys away as Iron Man's enemies have devious designs on the technology. Ultimately, Tony Stark/Iron Man will be forced to fight in epic battles, face huge enemies and in the end, the fate of the world will be left in his powerful hands where he will battle to save it from destruction.

Iron Man 2 takes players into a richer and more interactive Iron Man world. The game allows players to take full advantage of the Iron Man suit as they battle through futuristic environments inspired by the movie and comic book universe. These environments will also offer a new level of destructibility, making each encounter with enemies a more exciting and intense experience. Also new to the game are some powerful hand-to-hand combat styles one of which is kung fu. Iron Man 2 has taken fan feedback into consideration and will have a redesigned control scheme, making it fun and accessible for gamers to feel the power and strength of Iron Man.

Iron Man 2: The Video Game features the voices of renowned actors Don Cheadle and Samuel L. Jackson. Expanding their roles from the upcoming Iron Man 2 summer blockbuster from Marvel Studios, Cheadle voices Tony Stark's close friend James "Rhodey" Rhodes - the powerful War Machine, while Jackson joins the game as S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury. Together they complete a cast of characters that transports fans into a deeper and more authentic cinematic video game experience.

 Better than the first

I didnt have high hopes for this game to be honest because movie tie in games suck most of the time which is a unwritten rule in the gameing world, but this game is surprisingly fun, the part i like most is the fact it isnt based stricly on the film it has its own story and the flight mode has been improved.

If you are a Iron man fan then this game is for you, forget about the first game, this one is better with better graphics a better combat system, flight mode is easier and more fun, and its got more unlockables and trophys :)

Have fun, hope this review helped :)

 It takes a will of `iron` to enjoy this game. . .

It`s common knowledge that film tie-in video games have never quite been a bell ringer, as one of the reviewers before me very correctly pointed out. Either because they are rather expensive for game producers to develop or because these are pressurised by film studios to complete the games in time for the films` release, we gamers have never really succeed in getting our hands on film-based video games that could fully do justice to their big screen counterparts. And, as far as `Iron Man 2` is concerned, Tony Stark`s perked up propulsors , and repulsors alike, didn`t turn out to be as effective as we may have hoped. However, that is not to say that there aren`t a few good ideas here and there, which, if better developed upon, may have just salvaged the whole game. . .

In terms of storyline, the good news is that the game isn`t just a rehash of the homonymous film. Picking up exactly where the events of the movie left off, the tale revolves around some corporate villains trying to steal Tony Stark`s A.I. butler, Jarvis, and using it to create Ultimo, a gargantuan robot capable of melding with human beings. To foil the villains` unholy plans, you will have to don one of Iron Man`s several suits of armour, or alternatively play as War Machine and wade your way through high security military facilities in Russia and Malaysia, fighting down platoons of airborne and terrestrial robot machines till the final confrontation with the brobdingnagian Ultimo.

With all that said, a decent story just isn`t enough to render a game appealing. In my specific case, it took me exactly five hours to complete all eight chapters of the game, and after playing the first two chapters, I just couldn`t help becoming frustrated with the game mechanics and the gameplay in general. As I wailed through the first two missions, it dawned on me that the game did not present any serious challenge whatsoever, realising that all I had to do was finish off the same batch of enemies and proceed to the next spot indicated by the yellow marker on the map. As you blow up helicopters, aerial robots and minions alike, you will also notice that the allegedly innovative armour upgrades aren`t really worth their weight in exchange points. As you destroy tanks and kill off enemies, you will earn a number of points that you can then redeem in Tony Stark`s laboratory in order to update existing weapons and unlock new perks. In this respect, the remarkable part is that you can equip up to four different missiles/repulsors on Tony Stark`s armour suit or on War Machine`s, and yet the catch is that all four weapons, however different they are, will roughly cause the same amount of damage to your enemies. Because of that, it is rather pointless for you to tweak anything, unless you want to find your favourite combination of missiles and repulsors. Thus, the downside is that game mechanics are rather primordial and the game doesn`t present any serious challenge. You could simply float around and blast enemies throughout the game using the same combinations of weapons - or occasionally switch to combat mode - and dodge incoming bullets without bothering to update any of the existing weapons.

Finally, the game does not have any multiplayer function ( as expected from many single player adventure video games) and the hit-and-go system of the game pretty much sums it all. The game might then appeal to trophies aficionados, such as myself, but, for the very reason mentioned above, even more dedicated gamers might find it hard to wail through the eight chapters of the game all over again. My only recommendation is to shun this game like pest, or, alternatively, hire it out to add a few more trophies to your collection.

Firstly, this is an improvement on the first game of the franchise in that the combat controls and general movement controls are a lot easier to get used to and master. The real disappointment for me are the graphics. It seems unpolished and almost ps2 quality in the cutscenes. On the plus side the voice acting is good, even the actor playing Robert Downey Jr's character sounds spot on. Being able to play as war machine and various other iron costumes from the comics is a nice feature as well as being able to customize the weapons for your iron man/war machine suit of choice.

All-in-all this game is worth a try but don't expect to be blown away by the storyline or graphics, nor should you expect a long game to keep you busy either.

Worth a try, maybe worth a rent first though.

 SO BAD !!

This game is just terrible. The graphics, gameplay, dialogue are all very very POOR... also the game is very short, takes about 2-4 hours to complete and this also does not have online... so u get very bored very quickly
