Not bad, but nothing special either
on May 10, 2008
As any video game/movie tie-in would be, Iron Man is available on many platforms, including the DS, of which this version of the game ends up being the best. Sadly, that isn't really saying a whole lot, but for what its worth, Iron Man on the DS is a fun diversion for a while. Playing as 'ol shellhead, Iron Man offers up a pretty good looking 3-D engine for the DS that is nicely detailed for the most part, despite the fact that the game's camera doesn't do you any favors as off-screen enemies will fire at you. Not to mention that the game is kind of short and offers some clunky controls, and for a game screaming for some touch-screen originality, Iron Man doesn't offer any. There are some good points though that save Iron Man from being a total clunker, including the fact that the game does offer a bit of challenge, and film star Robert Downey Jr. provides some good voice work as well. All in all, Iron Man on the DS isn't bad, but it isn't anything special in the least either.
