    The game is realistic and accurate. I don't think they could have done a better job. I'm really suprised the reviews have not been a lot higher. The game takes some skill and practice but it is absolutely NOT frustrating. Frustrating is when a game doesn't do what it is supposed to do. If you like cheap arcade games with forgiving AI then you will be frustrated but real The game is realistic and accurate. I don't think they could have done a better job.

Loading times are not nearly as bad as some say. The game is a total BLAST! and my fave PS2 game to date. Expand

    This is a very action packed, addicting and just plain fascinating game. You are an actual Stuntman and you make the movie happen. The movies are SO extremely sweet and I just can't get enough of those graphics. This game isn't for beginners, although it's not for advanced players either. The game can be difficult for people to beat but once you get the hang if it, you get This is a very action packed, addicting and just plain fascinating game.

This game isn't for beginners, although it's not for advanced players either. The game can be difficult for people to beat but once you get the hang if it, you get the idea that is game pure genius. The sound is great and controling the car is simple. It even has a Construction Site in which you create your own stunt using multiple ramps, smashables, and other mind blowing toys. You would need to unlock most of them in the Stuntman career. This game has great replays and their's lots I haven't mentioned. All in all, this is a MUST-BUY for any PS2 fan and I recommend buying it or at least renting it. Expand

    This is one great game, great graphics sound and gameplay. Yes I admit that it is hard but that what makes it good the fact that you cannot complete it in a short amount of time. It is frustrating enough to keep you coming back for more even if the PS2 controller is smashed to gazillion little pieces from previous attempts. Anyone who loved the first 2 Drivers on PSone will drool over the This is one great game, great graphics sound and gameplay.

Anyone who loved the first 2 Drivers on PSone will drool over the first release from Reflections for the PS2 and for anyone that doesn't like this game because it is too hard..... may I suggest Alfred Chicken??

    A masterpiece. Great graphics, perfect driving for each car type, good sound, addicting game-play. Additionally, you will learn a lot of stuntman job, reflections did their homework here, seriously.
    Of course it is a tough game, recommended for: stuntman performers (?), driving games fans, adults with a PS2 console, gamers in general, or anyone but not-retarded people.

  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.
