Iron Man 2: "Vacuuming"
Posted: Monday May 17th, 2010 by

I have not played Iron Man 2. And honestly, this comic was dreamed up without a game in mind at all. The notes literally say "[game]" in place of "Iron Man 2". This morning when I sat down to start working, I hit metacritic and grabbed the most recent/well known game with the worst score.

Unfortunately, like it's predecessor, it seems to be a miserable example of translating a movie to game. If the reviews are to be believed, that is. But this is part of why I like Metacritic. It's not settling on one person's opinion. The scores are calculated based on the reviews across a handful of sites. Iron Man 2's score came from 19 critic reviews.

Now, I won't go so far as to say the review score is correct. Whether a person likes or dislikes a game is purely an individual experience with the title. There have been plenty of instances where I loved something other people (and reviewers) hated. But, thus far, I've never had a good experience with a movie-to-game translation.

All my blathering aside, any of you played it? If so, what did you think?
