Games Master UK: Iron Man Preview - Jet powered, indestructible and freezing on winter mornings

Games Master UK writes: "If you don't know your superheroes, you might have glanced at Iron Man and had him down as a dull robot-faced crime fighter. He's actually one of Marvel's coolest characters - a billionaire playboy genius with a '70s 'stache, an eye for the ladies and a heart of actual steel. And that's before Tony Stark puts on his self-designed flying armour and becomes the Invincible Iron Man. Beat that Peter Parker with your poorly paid photojournalism and annoying girlfriends. Next month's big budget Iron Man film looks promising enough to attract the worldwide love old shellhead deserves. Exclusively seeing the game of the movie in action at Marvel's disappointingly not top-secret New York HQ was enough to make us think that he's also got potential as a videogame hero.

Sega developers Secret Level have gone for all out military action here - it's probably best thought of as a flying shooter along the lines of Ace Combat, only minus the cumbersome plane of course. Although the training levels in the Mk 1 and Mk 2 suits have you flame-throwering enemies on the ground, for most of the game your jet boots will be thrusting you across huge open landscapes and into battle with fighter planes, attack choppers, tanks and the giant armoured supervillian, Power Monger."
