Conclusion: While filled with action, the game is a bit disappointing especially after seeing the movie. Still, the gameplay will give you a feeling of superhero-like power as you fly around destroying rocket launchers, powerful tanks, turrets, planes and helicopters. The lack of multiplayer is another downside to the game. With the special appearance from War Machine, you'd think that at least a co-op option would be available.
Conclusion: Seriously at no time did this game display what the 360 was capable of. It felt like a lazy PS2 port (which it probably was). There are so many other games you could be spending your forty quid on - like GTA IV for example, or even saving up for a movie franchise game that actually does bring the feel and atmosphere of the film into the gameplay: The Bourne Conspiracy. Look out for our review of that and don't waste your time with this.
Excerpt: Iron Man was a pretty big "if" for Hollywood. Marvel hasn't had the best track of record of comic book-to-movie releases in the last couple of years, with flops like Daredevil and Elektra and a so-so showing for Spider-Man 3 . Iron Man could have easily fallen in with the failures, but a slick script that goes far but never too far and some very solid acting by Robert Downey Jr, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Jeff Bridges really made the movie.

When I heard that the character model was being provided by ILM, and was basically the same as the one used in the movie, I got excited. Last week, when I saw the excellent Iron Man movie, I got downright stoked. How could they possibly mess up this project that’s so full of promise...
Conclusion: The Iron Man the game exploded on to store shelves the same day as the film and we here at BXB really loved the film! But we can't help but wonder, will Iron Man the game hit the same high flying and action packed notes that it's big screen brother did, read on to find out.
