Recently IGN’s Greg Miller managed to get some hands-on experience with the upcoming Iron Man 2 video game, and despite being extremely negative about the first Iron Man game he seems to have been perhaps won over by Iron Man 2.
Miller was frustrated by the first offering’s ‘impossible to read’ radar, ridiculous enemies and lack of feeling, from what Miller said SEGA seemed to have pulled their finger out with this release.
That said the game is apparently still not perfect, apparently the visuals are not amazing (however final code could resolve this), also the gameplay itself lacks substance which is not helped by a pretty basic melee system.
One positive is that the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, PSP and DS games are not all ported from the same version, three version were created, one for the PS3 and 360, one for the Wii and PSP and one for the DS, this should ensure that the gaming experience on your particular console is not disappointing due to a rushed port.
Also another positive is that the game’s story is not the same as the upcoming Iron Man 2 film, this means that the playing the game will not ruin the film, which in-turn means watching the film will not ruin the game, also this unique story was written by Matt Fraction and features Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) and Don Cheadle’s (Rhodes) voices.
If you check out IGN’s fully detailed 2 page review you can find out just more detailed information, I think its safe to say that Iron Man 2 could be a popular game, however it is not going to become an amazing superhero title.
As the game is released we will post reviews of the final product, which could differ greatly to the version which is talked about in this article.
