Gameloft's Iron Man 2 has arrived in many other regions over the course of the day today, but likely will not appear in the US App Store until May 3rd. We've got our fingers crossed it shows up earlier, but right now, things aren't looking good.

Iron Man 2 seems to be just about everything you'd expect from a movie tie-in iPhone game made by Gameloft. The dialog isn't great, gameplay seems surprisingly linear, and while flying around as Iron Man is pretty cool, the whole thing just feels like your typical movie game.

Unfortunately, I'm not alone in not really enjoying the Iron Man 2 iPhone game. The Iron Man 2 thread on our forums seems to be in agreement, filled with people who have spent the day playing the New Zealand version. Forum member Der-Kleine was able to play through the game in 2 hours and Ziotoo4 comments on the plot, voice acting, and bugs.

    9.99 for a 2 hour game.....
    No...
    F'ing...
    Way...

    No way I'm dumping 10 bucks for a thrown together game. (Gameloft is NOTORIOUS for doing this... look for a similar game with similar dialog and similar play style in a few months just change the words and graphics a bit)

    They are polished looking but not very deep.
    Deff not deep enough to warrent a 10 dollar purchase.
    (May or may not be entirely their doing.. maybe the movie studio is asking for a huge cut... I dunno)

    You are getting ripped off!

      That's Australian dollars...

        Actually, thats the price in NZ dollars. Australian price is AUD 8.99 instead. US should cost about $6.99 (once its out in US), which is what most new gameloft games cost.
