Whatever effort Secret Level put into its open-world style game design for the console rendition of Iron Man, Canadian developer Artifical Mind and Movement threw all that out and went straight for the "direct action" approach for the Nintendo DS edition of the superhero flick. There's definitely a lot of challenge in this straightforward shooter design, but it's a little too clunky and claustrophobic for its own good.

Tin Can action!
The excitement for this game was not high in my eyes! Those who like to be Iron man would absolutely like this game. However they might have a conflicting thought or two with the controls of this game. Shooting at the bad guys is not as fulfilling as it should have been! The controls to fly don't fill you with easy. At the beginning of the game i felt like a TIN CAN squirting orange juice at ants that evaporated too quickly for me to even notice I had hit them! Overall, the graphics were OKAY. This game fails in comparison to the other wonderful shooter games for the psp. If you want to wear a Campbell's Chicken Soup Can with weapons attached and shoot at ants....then buy Iron Man for the psp!

The Game Barely Deserves 1 Star
Iron Man is a game based on the movie by the same name. It is not a copy of the movie, it is only somewhat based on the movie. The movie is good, the game, not so much. With horrible gameplay, terrible controls, and not-so-great graphics, Iron Man has all the makings of a flop, and it delivers in that sense. The gameplay is the most flawed part about Iron Man. The flying is fun, but the massive amount of shooting, ducking, punching, and taking cover gets old fast. If that was not bad enough, the missions are extremely repetitive, with every one just being; blow this up, destroy this, and kill this person and this one too. The combination is a death blow to the game's chance of success. In addition to all this, the controls just do not feel right. The graphics are alright, but they could have been a lot better, particularly in the cutscenes. Really, the only good thing about the game is the fact that you do get to play as Iron Man. This game is not worth buying, for any amount over $5.99, unless you just love the fact that you play as Iron Man so much that you can ignore the overwhelming issues. If you really want to play this game I suggest you rent it first, and save your money for a much higher quality game. Without a doubt in my mind I say that Iron Man is a pass.

Iron man is a bland game all around. Controls are kinda awkward. Enemies are stupid and attack you in massive numbers. Graphically, only the Ironman costume is impressive. Everything else feels like its stuck in ps2 era of gaming. And the over all game is uninspired. The good: The flight and the customizing of the suits weapons. Flying around is surprisingly fun and makes you feel like iron man. Shooting people and blowing things up while setting your IronMan suit to focus its energies in specific areas I.E. (Sheilds, weapons, thrusters ect), just makes it feel like you are tony stark. If the game around Ironman was crafted with more care this game could be actually pretty good. Too bad it isnt. Its a guilty pleasure. There is some fun to be had, but not much of it.

IRON Man certainly isn't GOLDEN
The game is underwhelmingly simple. It seems like something a first year programmer put together as a homework assignment. It is a really unsofisticated game. The action and gameplay are weak, especially compared to games like: Star Wars-The Force Unleashed; Splinter Cell; Assassin's Creed; or Metal Gear. I was pretty disappointed with it. The game enviroment lacks thought and has little to no interactivity. The saving grace of this title is that it's fun to fly around and simulate some of Iron Man's action. I won't say, "Don't purchase this game." I will suggest that if you are going to buy it don't pay more that ten dollars, if that much!

Held captive in a cave by soldiers armed to the teeth with weapons of his own design, Tony Stark ponders his fate. Faced with the ugly truth about the world he has helped create, he resolves to turn his genius to other purposes. Stark constructs a high-tech suit of armor and becomes Iron Man, embarking on a quest to ferret out the evil fueled by his creations and salvage his shameful family legacy. Iron Man, a game recently released in conjunction with the feature film, parallels Tony Stark's plight. Iron Man dons the high-tech suit of wide-open game spaces and shiny visual effects and tries to leave the old stigma of movie-based video games behind. Zooming around and blowing up stuff does have its thrills, but that new-suit shine grows dull about halfway through the game as the difficulty spikes drastically while the level design flatlines. After that, there's just no reviving Iron Man

The movie rocked, but why can't the game?
First of all, the Iron Man armor is rendered beautifully in-game. The moves, from grappling to projectile attacks, are fun to use.... However, this is where the line is drawn in positive points for this game. I have nothing negative to say about the story, as you can get what you need from the movie and play this to control the armor we love. Game play, while simplistic, has its share of issues. Not being able to get through a squadron of fighter jets, even though you tossed their missiles back to them numerous times, is frustrating. You'd think that the armor could withstand small arms fire and flak from small projectiles, but, sadly, this is not the case. These problems, as well as trying to throw you into timed situations that, honestly, don't translate very well into the gameplay, lead more toward frustration than fun. All in all, the controls are tight, the graphics decent, but the gameplay just doesn't have what it takes. Let's hope the upcoming Incredible Hulk game is the one that nails it for movie tie-in games.

Tsk, tsk, tsk..... Tragic..... Absolutely tragic......
The gameplay was not what I expected. It was a very short game. The missions were simple. I personally feel like it could have been a lot better. The graphics were just terrible, and the characters movements were so robotic. I did not feel challenged not even once throughout the course of the game, and there was not much action either. If there are any positives about the game, I can't remember any of them right now. I was really disappointed. So disappointed that I feel too bad about trying to sell the game back on the internet. In the end, I'd probably rather watch the movie in slow-motion than play the game.

Good superhero action game
Good game. Controls are a little funky, but easy enough to get used to. Good graphics and good sound and music. Like listening to the full version of Black Sabbath's Iron Man while I'm playing through the first level learning how to work the Iron Man suit. Good game. Definitely worth getting--it's relatively inexpensive in most places now, and definitely really good addition for any superhero video game fan.
