  • Summary: Stuntman: Ignition is the next installment in the Stuntman franchise. The game plunges gamers into the adrenaline-fueled role of a Hollywood stunt driver, challenging them to pull off the most breathtaking, death-defying stunts ever filmed. Players showcase their skills in a wide variety of big-budget action films, commercial shoots and tournaments while commanding more than 25 unique vehicles, including exotic sports cars, motorcycles and hovercraft. Online multiplayer allows rival stuntmen to battle it out on the film sets and custom built back-lot arenas, or players can devise their own insane stunt runs and challenge other stuntmen at their own game.

  1. An absolute triumph of a sequel.
  2. Solid fun overall. [Nov 2007, p.84]
  3. In the end Stuntman: Ignition feels like opening night at one of the many big-budget blockbuster movies it spoofs - an expensive ticket and a long wait can get you the perfect seats for some very rewarding action.
  4. A niche game meant for niche gamers. This title really isn't for anyone who's prone to violent outbursts when he loses a fighting game or misses a note in Guitar Hero, but it's still a lot more accessible than it could have been.
  5. 70
    If you don't like trying the same thing over and over again until you've absolutely nailed it, this isn't the game for you. But if that setup appeals to you then you'll find a fair bit to like here.
  6. 60
    Just about everything that hampered the original is back to do the hampering again. There are some strong spots, but the constant repetition will drive you kookoo.
  7. If you can handle the mental strain, Ignition is worth a look but we wouldn't jump through flaming hoops to get it into our PS2. [Oct 2007, p.90]

    stuntman ignition is a game that requires patience, yes, but some of the stunts you pull off are really fun, like two-wheeling past a car or smashing into cars with a fire truck. graphically, the ps2 version looks OK, but it has a few nasty textures. the ps3 version looks much better, obviously, with particullaly nice lighting. however, this game will probably annoy some people with its trial and error gameplay, but overal it is quite a fun game. worth a purchase.

    This has just become the worst game i own (and i have shadow the hedgehog) its just stupid strikes and reshoots are called for no reason at all even if you nail the stunt the director wont tell you what to do or where to go until youve missed it and hes added a strike and you have to do what youre told and you have to do it over and over and over again which is actually less fun than having your leg sawn off while the other gets run over and someone attacks your head with a power drill and some tweezers and then theres the exceptionally annoying stunt coordinator who tells you almost nothing important and misses out all of the useful things like the floors going to collapse so move quickly or that ther is a lorry going to come round that corner so watch out you dont get run over all in all very annoying very boring and the only reason i havent given it -10 out of 10 is that the scale doesnt go that far dont buy it save your money and buy something good *tries to think of something positive* errrrrrrrrm the background musics not bad? seriously dont waste your money on this.
