Gamespot review: Iron Man 2

Two years after his summer blockbuster tie-in game frustrated anyone unlucky enough to don the shiny red suit, Iron Man is back. The intervening years have given him time to reflect and settle down, making Iron Man 2 a more even-keeled experience than its predecessor. The punishing difficulty has been smoothed out, thanks in part to the sprinkling of checkpoints now featured in each level. Unfortunately, the exhilarating sense of speed that provided Iron Man's few thrills has also been phased out, leaving Iron Man 2 without any excitement to call its own.

Any improvements end up overshadowed by the ugly visuals and troubled gameplay, making this sequel even worse than its mediocre predecessor.

an Ironman game has so much potential but it needs to free itself from the movies, like Arkham Asylum.

GOTY Confirmed. /s

I hope people didn't buy this game. I think people should boycott movie-games in order to force developers/publishers to produce games at a higher quality then what they are selling to consumers today.
