Iron Man 2 for iPad



Impressive action game would be at home on a console.

What parents need to know

Ease of play

Auto-aiming makes battles a lot simpler than they would have been otherwise. The camera controls can be a bit awkward at times, but on the whole, the controls work pretty smoothly.


You'll be blasting enemies (mostly robotic drones, but some armor-suited humans, too) with "repulsor rays" and missiles, as well as bashing them in hand-to-hand combat. When you, as Iron Man, get hit, you'll briefly see a splash of blood on the screen; It doesn't relate directly to your injury, though -- it's only appears to symbolize damage.


As you wait for each new level to load, you'll see a go-go dancer shimmying in the corner of the screen.

The game is a tie-in to the Iron Man 2 movie of this summer.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Iron Man 2 for iPad is a story-based action game adapted from the movie that shares its name. There is a lot of laser fire and plenty of explosions to be seen. While most of the enemies are robotic in nature, some are metal-suited humans. The splash of blood used to signify that Iron Man has taken damage feels gratuitous, as does the presence of a go-go dancer during load screens (at least she only appears in silhouette). Parents should also be aware that this is an entirely different game from the Iron Man 2 app available for iPhone and iPod Touch.

Is it any good?


IRON MAN 2 FOR iPAD is no one-trick pony mobile app -- this is a fully-fleshed out action adventure complete with story-based cut scenes, upgradable armor and weapons, multiple (and varied) locations, big boss battles, and more. Everything you'd expect from a $30 console game is here for much, much less. It's even got some nice puzzle moments thrown in for good measure. The camera controls can get clunky at times -- which is frustrating -- but on the whole, this is an app that shows some of the massive potential for gaming on the iPad.

13 and up? More like 8.

Let me begin by saying that this game isn't very well based off of the movie. The only thing that is actually bad about this game is that one of the characters say "What the hell..." Sure there is some violence, but you're using lasers that come out of your hands. Plus, you're shooting robots. So, go ahead and let your kid get this game. It's completely appropriate.
