Let's Play Iron Man
Two games based on the 2008 film "Iron Man" were created. One of them for the PS3/Xbox 360, and one for the PS2/Wii. They bombed. People hated them. Was it deserved? In short, no. The seventh gen game was a somewhat unique arena-based third-person shooter that expanded on the themes and characters from the film, going so far as to tie them directly into the gameplay. I feel it's a wonderfully made title that has insurmountable spirit. On the other hand, the PS2/Wii version is an exceedingly average linear shooter, lacking the creative design choices, difficulty, or narrative punch of its counterpart. Neither of them will give you cancer.
So what are we doing here?
We'll be playing both games side by side. This way, not only can you get two LPs for the price of one, but I can show you exactly how a good licensed game is made(PS3 version), in comparison to a sub-par one (PS2 version), using the same license. Really, how often does an opportunity for such a perfect study come up?
Anything else I should know?
I will be playing through the PS3 version with all the suit upgrades already bought, and explain their various functions where necessary. This is to minimize the repetition of the longer stages, and really no other reason.
With that out of the way, let's suit up.
Thank you for watching!
