User Rating:

You know what goes great with this weekend’s release of Iron Man 3? A free Iron Man 3 mobile game made by one of my favorite mobile game developers, Gameloft. In this game, you’ll take on four villains from the Iron Man comics: Living Laser, M.O.D.O.K., Ezekiel Stane and Crimson Dynamo.  Did I mention it was free?

The Good

For one, it’s free, which is rare for a Gameloft-developed title. But, that’s not the only good thing about the Iron Man 3 mobile game. The game sports excellent 3D graphics and easy, fun gameplay. Anyone can pick this game up and play; it’s THAT easy. The game brings new ideas to the free-runner mobile game genre, such as facing bosses and unlocking different armor. The gameplay feels like Temple Run, but you’re flying and you’ve got other objectives.

The Bad

Unfortunately, you have to spend your real-world hard-earned cash for some suit upgrades. You could spend up to $100 to unlock everything. Wait, what? $100 for a MOBILE game?  That is outrageous! Also, the game can get repetitive, as many runners tend to do. And, without spending real money on the game for upgrades, you’ll feel as though you’re playing the same mission over and over again. The game also force-closed three times while playing.

The Ugly Truth

While the game is “free”, the cost of playing is actually quite high. Gameloft has a track record for releasing great games, but this one’s high cost greatly hinders its appeal.  The official Iron Man 3 mobile game is a good download if you want a game to play in short bursts, but if you are a hardcore Android gamer (such as myself), this is one game you shouldn’t waste your download cap on.

Quick Take


Would I Buy Again:N/A

Learning Curve:Easy.

Who Is It For:Comic book-based video game fans.

What I Like:New aspects to the runner genre.

What I Don't Like:Its Freemium.

Final Statement:I wouldn't waste your money on any of the upgrades, but download the game for a quick play and a look at the 3D graphics in action.
