Fans of the Iron Man character or just comics in general will enjoy The Invincible Iron Man. It's one of the few side-scrolling action games that's genuinely fun to play and that also delivers a faithful interpretation of a familiar character. Just keep in mind that it's over far too soon.
The game's a little too short, and there's not much else to discover gameplay-wise beyond what the first level offers, but for what it is Invincible Iron Man isn't too shabby. The art and animation is the real charm here, with shooting action -- as simplistic as it is -- that's pretty satisfying.
The Invincible Iron Man is a convincing action game that will interest fans of the comic book , but there's definitely more to be desired from the entire package. With patience and practice, its mere nine levels can be completed within no time. The obtainable artwork for the gallery isn't at all encouraging to anyone but die-hard fans, however the game does save your progress from level to level without the use of passcodes. So, Torus Games was able to implant likeable qualities to form a solid outcome, though admittedly, more abilities, modes, and levels are the core reason why this Iron Man is no Man of Steel.
The Invincible Iron Man is not an awful game by any stretch of the imagination - it’s just sadly a very average platform game on a system home to some of the greatest. Unless you must own an Iron Man game, this is one to avoid.
Not terrible, but not terribly good. If you haven't had enough of the run and shoot side-scrolling games, give this a try. If you don't like games that work against your skills with poor design, avoid this one. It will drive you crazy. It's sad to say, as I am such a fan, but honesty must prevail. Maybe a sequel will be created, and they will make something that utilizes Iron Man's real skills and without the annoyances.
Other than that, in terms of his strength and abilities, The Invincible Iron Man is one of the wimpiest game heroes we've encountered and deserves to be locked away in this rather limp platformer-with-guns. Only super diehard comic book fans need apply, and if they could preface any bickering planned for the comments page with some sort of irate comic book fan disclaimer that would be lovely.
