Iron Man 2 PS3
on August 11, 2012
This was a fun game. I had a lot of fun in this game. Do not believe the naysayers, Iron Man 2 is a great game!
The controls are easy to learn, and playing is fun.
The game is rather short. I took breaks in between many of the missions. Most movie tie-in games are short since it takes longer to make a video game than it does to make most movies. The thing is, you can play some of the missions as either Iron Man or War Machine, which gives replayability. Furthermore, it takes more than one playthrough to get all of the research. Most of the research can be gained in one playthrough, however.
The game is mainly a third person shooter with some melee, and it is darn FUN to use the different weapons! Both Iron Man and War Machine have four weapons they can switch to use, and each character can use two of them at one time. Blasting enemies is great fun. Tanks, gun turrets, floating turrets and robots (both ground and air) make up most of the enemies, with an occasional Boss fight thrown in for good measure. There are also big tanks which are kind of like mini-bosses. Shooting things is fun! Your character has a shield, which regenerates over time, and internal armor, which does not regenerate. Oh, and ammunition self-replenishes in time, very nice.
In between missions you can spend Research Field Data points on upgrades. You can upgrade the main weapon, ammunition type, add-on modules for the weapons, and close combar routines. As you play the game, you will unlock different armor suits, as well.
Although short, the missions are a lot of fun. I had a lot of fun with Iron Man 2, it is a good game!
