Iron Man 2 is an uneven adventure that doesn’t last very long. You can burn through it in about two hours if you just sit down and play it from one end to the other. Too much of Iron Man 2 just feels too uneven to recommend it. The camera is as much of an enemy as the Hammer drones. The checkpoint system is almost overwhelming.
And while visuals do not trump gameplay in any situation, the chasm between Iron Man/War Machine and everything else is so glaring. IGN suspects that only the absolute hardest of hardcore shellhead fans will really enjoy Iron Man 2.
