I downloaded the demo off the PSN and thought it could be ok , but when i played it i found that they gave iron man to much power , like 3 hits and blows up a tank or a rocket launcher. So i said ok this is ok , so i rented it from Gf and boy was i suprised when i got it , the mark 1 even moves fast and demolishes tanks and stuff which is impossible , a man in a suit of sheet metal with flame throwers is just unrealistic in the sense of demolishing tanks and helicopters. So i said ok , but then you get the light beam thing and i said oh my god this is so cheasy , i beat a few more levels and said this is to stupid put in in the slip and sent it back the very same day.
I really hoped that after "Hulk: Ultimate Destruction" that developers would have take the cue to step it up for these kinds of games.
Iron Man had potential, but turned out just like the Superman game in a lot of ways, but a little worse. The "targeting system" is useless, unless I missed the instruction on auto-lock? The camera gets crazy when you take off to fly, and you have to hold down a trigger to hover while battling. The controls were fairly smooth until I had to fight. I couldn't seem to take advantage of any super-strength by being able to pick up anything!
The tutorial was frustrating when I had to learn how to dodge, which I still couldn't do at the end of the tutorial.
I'm really glad I just rented this, because the potential is totally wasted on crazy cameras, demanding control during aerial combat, and unusual limitations for a superhero.
Man i have to say this game sucks, not just sucks, but i mean its horrible, could the developers put together a game more faster than this one. or is it just the same as transformers, i mean they need to stop making games off from movies, unless they do it right, i mean the movie was off the hook, best movie iv seen for atleast 5 years. and than they put this sorry for a excuse game and name it iron man, they should of could it C&ap man, or bad graphics man, or just plain Sucks.
