very accurate

it is a good game to entertain young teens. I have a twelve year old that loves this game and I saw him play it once and it was nothing to graphical, just a few explosions and bullets flying when you shoot things. no blood or gore

Too much violence

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (6 ):

Iron Man 2 is a pretty standard third-person shooter, with controls that are sometimes clunkier than the hulking robots that attack its heroes. The all-new plot (rather than a retread of the film) makes it more exciting to play, and comic book fans will thrill to the appearance of some classic Iron Man supervillains not seen in the movie. The ability to play a mission as either Iron Man or War Machine adds some nice variety, as does the upgrade system that lets you strengthen your armor and weaponry.

Still, the game feels very been-there-done-that for anyone whose played their share of action games. And some of the controls issues are simply annoying. Iron Man fans can definitely have fun with the game, but it's not likely to make anybody jump for joy.
