    It's been a long time since I've had as much fun playing a videogame as I've had playing Stuntman: Ignition. It's furiously fast, awesomely addictive and gives rise to some fantastic multiplayer grudges! Ignition could well become to driving games what Bullit's chase scene is to driving films.
  2. Stuntman: Ignition is a total blast. It has great physics and handling and stunts that are totally insane but also typical of the current Hollywood blockbuster.
  3. This game earns its stripes by letting players have more of a hand in creating their own style of mayhem to spice up a scene, and trust me, you’ll take every opportunity you can get.

    A unique driving game which rewards constant re-tries and perfect driving. [Oct 2007, p.73]

    An incredibly satisfying challenge...However, it's not for the faint-hearted. [Issue#157, p.76]
  6. There's absolutely no getting away from the fact that Stuntman: Ignition is often an infuriating game, but that doesn't automatically make it a bad one. At times it feels as rigid as an old-fashioned school cane, but perseverance will reveal a highly rewarding experience.

    The design is forgiving enough to get plenty of fun out of it. [Nov 2007, p.84]
  8. 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.
  9. If you come into the game with the right attitude and take it easy instead of hammering the game in one session, Stuntman: Ignition is a pretty cool game to play.
  10. If the heavy focus on trial and error doesn't rattle you, Stuntman: Ignition can be some explosive fun.

    Great, awful, exhilarating and painful, all in one. You'll weep with joy, or just plain weep. [Oct 2007, p.74]

    What makes Stuntman great is the sum of all of its parts. While the career mode would have been great for a cheaper title all of the additional stuff such as odd-jobs, construction mode, and of course online play make this package worth checking out for fans of driving games looking for something unique in the genre.

    I was quite the fan of the first Stuntman on the PS2; this addition to the series wqas definitely a step in a fun direction. It's kindI was quite the fan of the first Stuntman on the PS2; this addition to the series wqas definitely a step in a fun direction. It's kind of like a hybrid of the first Stuntman and a Burnout style game...Very entertaining, although you do have to be ready to repeat the same things over and over Full Review »

    An extremely addictive game and a huge improvement over the original Stuntman.
