Introduction to Iron Man 2 

================================================================
!!!!!!!!!! please note this is all just my opinion !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Iron Man 2 the Game is loosely based on Iron Man 2 the film...in 
that Rhodey/War Machine is voiced by Don Cheadel and Nick Fury is 
voiced by Samuel L Jackson. It has nothing to do with the film so 
you have no worries about spoiling anything. Is this an unofficial 
sequal? I dont know.

The game mechanics have improved a bit from the first game...but 
not by much.The flying can get clunky to the point where you cant 
tell whats on the screenor which direction your looking. Also the 
auto target will sometimes target enemies to far away versus the 
closer ones, leaving you vulnerable.

There are only three difficulties, the first two are fairly easy 
for most players, the hard difficulty is ridiculous in how much 
health can be taken in some fights, and with the faulty flight 
and targeting controls...can prove to be frustrating

However, once you play long enough to get used to the controls, 
you may find the game enjoyable and destructive. The levels are 
hardly repetative and battles are fairly creative.

The achievements in this are very basic. Pass XXX level, kill 
XXX number of enemies with XXX weapon. So if you are wanting a 
fun game to play for a day with easy achievements, this is for you.


Game Rating: 4/10
Achievement Level: Easy







Achievements
================================================================

Gameplay Tips
-----------------

 1: The game can be started at either of the three difficulties, 
and can be changed anytime at the headquarters screen by pressing 
start, game, difficulty

 2: Even as an experienced player I found starting on hard a bit 
ridiculous with the controls and enemy ai. I recommend starting on
at least normal to get used to the controls and build up your 
field data and suit research

 3: You can play as either Iron Man or War Machine in most of the 
levels. Iron man is fast with good weapon output. By charging you 
repulsor blasts you can stun most enemies and press B to take them 
over for a short time to fight
for you.
 War Machine has Stronger Weapons and can shoot most enemies before 
they even get to you. I started on Hard and did mosst of the game 
with War Machine because of his mini gun...youll see.

 4: If you are trying to just get achievements. All can be 
best obtained oneasy difficulty except for the two that call 
for you to play on higher difficulties.






******************************
Level Difficulty**************
******************************

You can start on easy, normal, or formidable(hard). I 
recommend starting on normal so you can get a feel for the

Formidable, the Normal and Easy achievement are automatically 
unlocked.

3-1 Not IN MY House  15g
------------------------
Prevent the first wave of Roxxon dropships from deploying 
their drones


Mission: The Stark Archives

Once you take over War Machine, shoot down the first two 
sets of helicopters you see as Jarvis is explaining the weapons. 
They must be shot down before they release the drones

Difficulty: Easy


3-2 Full Flight  15g
--------------------
Only one S.H.I.E.L.D. transport lost in the canyon run.


Mission: Russia and Roxxon

You start off with 6 but you WILL lose one in the arminger 
fight. Just fly ahead and take out all anti air missle 
launchers. The hellicopters are usually taken out by the 
transports, but you can help with that. 

Difficulty: normal


3-3 Two Man Army  10g
---------------------
Defeat the Russian separatists as both Iron Man and 
War Machine.


Mission: Russia and Roxxon

Alls you have to do is play the mission twice as both characters, 
it does not matter how many transports make it in.

Difficulty: easy


3-4 Area Secured  20g
---------------------
At least 10 S.H.I.E.L.D. units survive the battle for the docks


Mission: Russia and Roxxon

You have to make it to the docks with all transports from the 
first part.The units refered to are the soldiers and tanks on 
the ground. Kill the russian tanks and soldiers as soon as you 
start the soldiers wont reallyleave that little area. So just 
fly around and blow everyone else up andyou should get it right 
before you fight the second arminger.

Difficulty: Easy


3-5 Pulling the Plug  15g
-------------------------
Destroy all four Tesla reactor stabilizers in under 60 seconds


Mission: Crimson Dynamo

As soon as you blow the door to the room, the game will glitch 
and give you between 2-5 drones. Just fly in and utilise both 
weapons to hit them quickly. I recommend Iron Mans laser or 
War Machines mini gun.

Difficulty: Easy


3-6 Anger Managemenet  15g
--------------------------
Destroy most of the structures in Shatalov's base


Mission: Crimson Dynamo

After you get back outside you have to find a computer to 
find Natasha. There are two areas for you to search each has 
between 5-7 buildings to search.  Dont get on the computer 
yet! Just fly to both spots and destroy everything you see. 
The grayish buildings roofs blow up. The medium sized cylos/cylinder 
looking things are destructable, and the reddish looking buildings 
are fully blow upable. You have to get this before fighting 
Crymson Dynamo.

Difficulty: Normal


3-7 It Takes Two to Tangle  10g
-------------------------------
Defeat Crimson Dynamo as both Iron Man and War Machine


Mission: Crimson Dynamo

Just play the level as both Iron Man and War Machine

Difficulty: Easy


3-8 Entrapment  15g
-------------------
Reach the bottom of the elevator shaft without touching a 
laser tripline


Mission: PROTEAN

there are three levels with lazers, each will deploy flying 
drones if hit. The first one is easy, there should be one
with lazers making a triangle that the moving lazers dont pass 
through, just press A and lower down. The next two I found 
easier to find a corner where it takes a second for the lazer 
to pass and just lower ass soon as it goes the opposite 
direction. May take a few tries

Difficulty: Normal


3-9 Man and Machine  10g
------------------------
Destroy Project PROTEAN as both Iron Man and War Machine


Mission: PROTEAN

Just play the level as both Iron Man and War Machine


Difficulty: Easy


3-10 Defensive Player of The Year  20g
-------------------------------------
Save all four repulsor lifts and all four stabilizers on 
the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier.


Mission: Operation Daybreak

When your not busy protecting your plane you have to fight 
drones attacking the ship. Target the bigger ones that are 
focused on the ship. The Unibeam is a good weapon to use 
when your waiting for missles to recharge. I hovered in front 
of them and used charged repulsors, you cant miss being in 
front and they wont fly away. Make use of the missle drones and 
deflect missles towards the bigger drones. 

Its easy to get distracted by all of the drones that fly to 
intercept and attack you, just press B on the melee fighters 
to take them over causing distractions and possibly attacking 
the big drones.

Difficulty: Normal/Hard


3-11 Brute Force  30g
---------------------
Destroy the A.I.M. Arc Armiger without using missile deflection

Mission: War 

Just dont deflect any of the missles flying at you, it a 
little difficult and reflexes usually call for you to hit 
the deflect button. Just dont.Use your missles and rockets on it 
till it goes green. Then when it releases the four balls. Target 
one and as soon as its still long enough, hit it with a rocket. 
Do this a few times and on the armingers last bit of health it 
will fire missles like mad if you are in front of it. Just use the
Omega System and blast it.

Difficulty: Normal


3-12 Guardian  25g
-----------------
Shut down GREENGRID without needing to repair the Arc Armiger


Mission: Storm Warnings

Just play this on easy and the arminger with lose little to 
no health as long as you fly cover and destroy the missle launcher pads.

Difficulty: Easy


2-13 Switchboard Operator  20g
------------------------------
Reposition all of the GREENGRID relays without being interrupted


Mission: Storm Warnings

When you reach the end, you have to shoot the ball in the 
middle then repostition the relays. When you go for a relay 
two drones may come to stop you, just shoot them before you 
start on a relay. There is a timer before the ball in the 
middle recharges. If you are in the middle of postitioning 
one when the timer hits zero, it will count as an interuption.

Difficulty: Easy


3-14 Bipolar  10g
-----------------
Shut down the GREENGRID power transmitter as both Iron Man 
and War Machine


Mission: Storm Warnings

Just play the level as both Iron Man and War Machine

Difficulty: Easy


3-15: Not a scratch  40g
------------------------
Defeat ULTIMO with no armor damage

Mission: ULTIMO

I highly recommend you play on easy for this because any 
hit he causes on the higher difficulties will cause at 
least one bit of damage. On easy it just wipes most of the 
shield but you have time to recharge it. The main part that 
makes this difficult is the flight controls when you move 
on one of the reactors. Just have patience and you will get it.

Difficulty: Normal/Hard



******************************

Each mission awards you with field data based on enemies 
killed, objectives met, and armor breach. As long as you 
get top score on a level which is easy on easy, and you

consider all an easy difficulty.

Other*************************
******************************

Chances are you will get at least 85% while playing normally, 
they can be obtained at any time. If your just going through 
levels to obtain resources or get optional  objectives, 
remember to use what weapons you still need the achievement for to 
make it wasier later. So consider all marked as easy difficulty.


5-1  Bulletproof  30g
---------------------
Defeat 50 enemies in melee as Iron Man while Invincible

Any enemies count and while invincible the melee gets a 
good damage boost. A goodlevel for this is PROTEAN, trip every 
lazer in the shaft and you get around 10ish drones all in one 
spot so you can hit them all easy. 


5-2  Fire and Forget  10g
-------------------------
Defeat 100 enemies with homing missiles

You should get this by mid playthrough if you constantly use it. 
Can be earned with
both characters


5-3  Unnecessary Force  7g

Defeat a soldier with Iron Man's unibeam

There are soldiers at the dock in "Russia and Roxxon" and 
there are A.I.M. soldiers in the PROTEAN level after you 
lose your flight control.


5-4  Pushback  20g
------------------
Defeat 100 enemies with Iron Man's repulsor

The charged attack can stun big enemies and you only have 
that and missles in the"Operation Daybreak" mission.

Every opportunity to blast someone up close, take it. may take 
a bit.

Defeat 100 enemies with Iron Man's laser

I recommend upgrading this thing, it starts weak but finishes 
pretty strong


5-11 Room Broom  20g
--------------------
Defeat 100 enemies with War Machine's shotgun

"War Machine" is a great level for this, but anything with lots of 
drones works


5-12 Storm of Lead  20g
-----------------------
Defeat 100 enemies with War Machine's minigun

Should aquire naturally, its a great weapon


5-13 Omega Man  30g
-------------------
Defeat 100 enemies as War Machine while using the Omega System

Its hard to remember to use this, but have patience and you'll get it.


5-14 Technical Genius  50g
--------------------------
Invent every module, ammunition, and weapon upgrade

By the last three levels, you get a LOT of research, by the time your 
done getting achievements you will have more than enough to get it all 
twice. You dont have to upgrade the fighting styles, just the Modules, 
Ammo, and Weapons.
