Although Iron Man was better, IM2 definately felt more like an "Iron Man" film in terms of how much Tony actually used his armor and I enjoyed the increase in action and overall fun.
I remember only three Iron man apparitions. The first one was good, the second one was that 'friend fight' with Tony making drunk jokes and the third one that was more explosions than anything.
It might have been more, or with more expensive special effects, but the times in IM1 were so much better.
