Just like their previous effort in V-Rally 3, Velez & Dubail pull off a very decent conversion on the GBA with Stuntman. Its focus on driving technique instead of racing gives it a distinctly different flavor for handheld gaming, since the GBA's already chock full of the racing variety. The conversion isn't quite as versatile as the console game it's based upon, but at least portable gamers won't have to put up with the seriously obnoxious loadtimes the developers put PS2 gamers through last year.

A great conversion of an excellent title. It retains the best, and core, part of the PS2 original, and gives you something addictive on the move. That's a wrap.

Wie ein Hollywood-Stuntman steuert ihr angenehm lenkbare Vehikel, wie z. B. Jeeps oder Tuk-Tuks durch Ägypten, Monaco oder sogar die Alpen und gebt spektaku- läre Stunts zum Besten. Um im Career-Modus Kollisionen zu vermeiden, halsbrecherische Sprünge oder 180°-Drehungen zu vollführen, ist der heftige Einsatz von Gas und Bremse unerlässlich. Der Stunt-Arena-Modus hingegen wartet mit Jump- oder Speedtests auf. Grafisch kommt Stuntman zwar nicht an V-Rally 3 heran, beeindruckt aufgrund des Detailreichtums dennoch.

If you're looking for a driving game that places you in the role of a stunt performer in crime and caper movies, then Stuntman should fit the bill nicely. Unlike the PS2 version of the game, the GBA version does not splice your stunts into the footage for each film. This takes away a little from the overall cinematic appeal of the game, but not so much that you can't get plenty of enjoyment from this otherwise solid product.

Le jeu de Reflections fait quelque peu peau neuve sur GBA. Le principe de cascades demeure inchangé mais la réalisation étant à la hauteur de la portable de Nintendo, on se prêtera plus volontiers au jeu que sur PS2. Reste que les commentaires vous informant des actions arrivent toujours aussi tard et qu'il est parfois rageant de savoir quoi faire uniquement au niveau de l'endroit où une cascade est à effectuer.

Konceptet – du spelat som en stuntman och försörjer dig genom att medverka i diverse biljaktsfilmer alternativt träna på en arena med vägstolpar och hopp – passar egentligen bäst på ett mer kraftfullt format, men det har utvecklarna Velez & Dubail struntat i. Och utan att ändra på originalidén från PlayStation2-spelet med samma namn, lyckas de faktiskt fånga föregångarens styrkor och samtidigt anpassa konceptet till den bärbara konsolen. Givetvis betyder formatskiftet att den tredimensionella grafiken är kantigare, kontrollen mindre sofistikerad och regissörens anvisningar betydligt mer distade, men bortsett från avsaknaden av repriser tycker jag ändå att Stuntman till Nintendos bärbara övertygar precis lika mycket som Stuntman till PlayStation2. Om än på ett lite annorlunda sätt.

After the howls of dissent thrust at the PS2 version we're left wondering whether anyone will care to spend £35 of their hard earned cash on this. It's actually one of the better GBA games around, believe it or not, but given that it's arrived nearly 11 months after the original, it's selling to an audience which has long since moved on, and probably harbours a grudge against the game.

This is Hollywood, right? How many times has a lousy first film generated a string of second-chance sequels? True, it's often a losing battle, but everybody bets on the underdog. So, even though we stay away from Stuntman for now, you can bet that it'll come roaring back for a second approach. I'll be willing to give it a shot if the developers can remember one thing: Being a stunt driver for a Jerry Bruckheimer flick would be hard work, but that doesn't mean I want the simulation to be as well.
