Iron Man (alongside Captain America) has been one of the most recognized and least used comic book heroes in recent history. So when real gamers (and comic book fans alike) see the following description for any game: Based on licensed movie property. Thereís a grave feeling of dread for said game. However, Sega is trying something a little different with Iron Man: The Game by focusing more on gameplay, unlockables and GTA-styled freedom, in hopes of surpassing the movie-licensed stigma most games carry with them.
Iron Man: The Video Game will feature various missions and tasks that can be explored and completed in a practical, open-world environment. Players will be able to run, hover or fly around while battling foes, and will have a hearty selection of customizable weapons. As a matter of fact, the entire game has a heavy reliance on customization. Players will be able to modify both Iron Manís arsenal and his armor. Different weapons and suit configurations can be unlocked based on the success rate of completed missions. There are plenty of different weapons, thrusters, and power cores to choose from, giving gamers a wide variety of different settings and a high potentiality for replay.
