Robert Downey Jr. voices Iron Man game

As the days near for the release of the anticipated Iron Man movie, Sega is busy with their video game adaption. Now usually such adaptions end of being absolutely horrible (don’t try Jumper), but in the case of the new Iron Man movie, Sega is putting their heart and soul (and wallet) into making a fun and enjoyable Iron Man experience.

How can they make such a game work out successfully? Good graphics, new gameplay mechanics, and most of all be true to the source. Luckily Sega nabbed themselves the chance to use the voice of Robert Downey Jr. (the actor portraying Iron Man in the movie) for the movie adaptation.

"SEGA and Marvel have announced that Robert Downey Jr. and other people will be doing voice acting in its upcoming Iron Man game," a Sega spokesman stated. "Downey Jr. plays Tony Stark, a billionaire industrialist who through whatever happens in the comic/film/etc ends up as some sort of mechanised hero."

It’s always nice to see game companies push their power into producing something that seems a little less fake and a bit more legit. For example the new Lost: Via Domus game only has but a few of the original actors voicing the game, and the main characters were subbed for "sound alikes" that always sound a bit iffy to the fans. Going the extra mile really gives the game a more solid footing. Good job, Sega.
