This one should have stayed in the cinemas
Tony Stark’s robotic alter-ego may be sporting a shiny new paint job in his last big-budget Hollywood outing, but this iPhone adaptation feels rusty and tired, with little in the way of original content or innovation. Above-average presentation fails to hide the woeful shortcomings of the gameplay, which is incredibly basic and not at all challenging. The controls range from workmanlike to frustrating, and the samey combat does little to draw you in; the biggest contest is between the player and the in-game camera, which never seems to give you a clear view of your enemies.
The ability to upgrade a multitude of different Iron Man suits is a nice touch, and the presence of secondary character War Machine will have comic book fans salivating, but ultimately Iron Man 2 is a very ordinary action title which should only be purchased by diehard fans of the titular superhero.
Rating 2 Star
