  • 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. 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. But Stuntman really shines at parties, where over excited and likely intoxicated friends all want a crack at busting through the floating house and splitting police cars.
  4. 75
    Stuntman Ignition is far better than its predecessor and a highly enjoyable game. As long as the premise behind the game appeals to you we have no hesitation recommending the game.
  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. There is no doubt that Stuntman: Ignition is superior to its predecessor in every way, but it still doesn't quite live up to its lofty potential.
  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%.

    Obsessive-compulsive players may flip out over the gameplay structure of "Stuntman Ignition," but it nonetheless makes for a surprisingly time-consuming and entertaining play. Expand
