    Playing this game in full nuditiy, I severly hurt myself when I leaped up to smash my controller against the wall. It was so frustrating, I cried myself to sleep while holding the box next to my feverish forehead.

    Pros: SWEET graphics, excellent stunt editor, physics as good as GT3's, good voice acting, DVD extras, addicting gameplay. Cons: VERY, VERY, VERY, VERY, VERY (etc.) hard, sometimes frustrating stunt layouts (i.e.- the train: that van on the bridge made me mess up about 25 times), annoying load times. The Verdict: Rent it. Stuntman is hard, but very addicting, and makes you feel great Pros: SWEET graphics, excellent stunt editor, physics as good as GT3's, good voice acting, DVD extras, addicting gameplay.

    Stuntman is a good game but there are serious issues. the difficulty is way to high,most of the time you'll do a stunt a good 60 times brfore you finally get it right. this will lead to you just about punching yout TV and shooting tne disk itself. this game scored high because should you stick it out and beat this game it is very rewarding. Graphics aren't amazing but their not Stuntman is a good game but there are serious issues. the difficulty is way to high,most of the time you'll do a stunt a good 60 times brfore you finally get it right. this will lead to you just about punching yout TV and shooting tne disk itself. this game scored high because should you stick it out and beat this game it is very rewarding. Graphics aren't amazing but their not bad and the music during the stunts can ware on you for example about the 15th time of you trying to do a corkscrew jump on the second movie the hillbilly music has you crying. all in all i wouldn't recommend this to you if you are short tempered or get frustrated very easily renting it would probably be good for you however if you like a challenge go for it you will definitely get your money's worth.

    It's very disappointing overall. The stunts are sometimes very frustrating to pull because they involve many elements and are done largely by trial and error.

    Very engaging game....initially. You soon find it insanely difficult, and tedious with it's painfully long load times. This game is a BIG letdown for me...I was hoping this game would be a step up from the Driver Duo on PSX, but it's simply wasn't in my book. Part of the charm of the similar Genre..ie Driver (I and II), and GTA3, was the free roaming aspects of the games. Very engaging game....initially.

There is no such option in this game...sorry but I'm disappointed in this spur of the moment (on my part) purchase. Fool me once... Expand

  1. Short game length, long load times, and high levels of frustration may regulate this game to a weekend rental.

    The near Zen-like state that is required to pull off the scenes - and the adrenaline rush that goes along with it - is what makes Stuntman the great game it is. [July 2002, p.78]
  3. Stuntman is purely about skilled, balletic driving. The redundancy of trying the same stunt over and over again is an exercise in tedium, yet the visual pay off is huge.
