First off, I'm giving this a 3 strictly because I feel it needed points for effort and War Machine. I remember a lot of talk about how the last game was a little overbearing with its constant barrage of enemies, in which i did not agree with until this game came along. I immediately found the simplest of foes to be insanely difficult only because of the uncooperative camera, single-button mashing combos and an insanely confusing HUD. But what really got me was the upgrade system. I've never been so lost with what to do in a game in my life. I felt like I needed to be some kind of Technical Savant just to understand what kind of weapons to use for which suit. I spent more time trying to upgrade than I did in actual gameply. I've been playin for less than 2 hours and I'm more than half through and I just could not have been more disappointed with a movie-to-game tie-in. Ever. Superman Returns was better...yea

Well its better than Iron man 1...But not by much. The game is only 8 levels, I beat it in 3 hours on hard mode, so its not a long game. The difference between playing as Iron man and War machine is a mini gun so don't expect much there. The customization of weapons and suits was a pretty good plus but not enough to pull this game out of the fire. The changes to the flight controls are certainly...different good or bad I'll let you decide. I found them to be a pain at first but I got the hang of them eventually, not to say that I liked them but that I could use them. The weapons system I actually liked, targeting was good but his range is awful. Also the destructible environment was a nice change of pace from Iron man 1. Overall I would say rent don't own this one unless your a die hard Iron man fan.
but i was a little disappointed with this game, the graphics were a little weak... the ones from the 1 game were better... give granted they if you played the 1st iornman you will notice that.. also the controls are better pretty simple..
the story is pretty good and for those of you who haven't seen the movie yet and don't to play the game till after you seen the movie... well don't worry about that because this game story is NOWHERE near the story in the movie.
overall it is a fun and quick game I played it and got all the achievements for it in about 6h total time....
