  1. Stuntman: Ignition will induce some controller-tossing moments, but the action is so intense and fun, it's hard not to want to do that "one more take." It's thrilling, maddening, and addicting all at the same time.
  2. What it lacks in overall content it makes up for by having damned enjoyable and addictive gameplay and enough variations on a theme for the game to last much longer than the four or so hours it takes to complete the main mode.
  3. A tough one to master, but progressively rewarding for those that stick to their guns.
  4. 75
    Stuntman: Ignition isn't for everyone, and even enthusiastic wannabe performers will occasionally cry out in frustration if they play for too long at a stretch, but it's still as good an execution of this offbeat concept as you're ever likely to see, and a welcome online departure from straight-laced racing purism.
  5. Stuntman: Ignition is a leap forward for the series but the game is still a lesson in frustrating trail-and-error gameplay that might not sit well with many gamers.
  6. Stuntman: Ignition would benefit from a more style substance, and its methods start to run a bit thin, but that doesn't keep it from hitting an acceptable summer-blockbuster-style mark. [Sept 2007, p.77]
  7. If you must complete every game you play, then don’t bother. Still haven't found anyone on Xbox LIVE or on public message boards who has even claimed to have completed the game 100%.

Failure never seems to be a punishment, instead it makes you want to play the game more. All the missions are totally original and the stunt creator is a great addition. The multiplayer mode is extremley fun especially when you steal the other players stunt strings. The only problems are the lack of that many good cars in the multiplayer and the fact that hardly anyone plays it online anymore. Expand

    This game is better than the first Stuntman. It's got some good gameplay, it's easier and the controls are fine. But the story is short. ButThis game is better than the first Stuntman.

The map editor, extra This game is a lot of fun and the career mode is quite lengthy, without becoming repetitive or boring at any point. The map editor, extra challenges and online play also extend the life of the game whilst offering something a little different. The graphics aren't top notch and sometimes the game can feel as though it was targeted towards younger teens and kids but I'd still recommend this game. Expand
