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.

Game Chronicles
Ignition caters to the gamer who quests for perfection and values a stylish performance. In fact, you’ll start to find yourself flowing into a subconscious rhythm with this game as you learn the environments and master the art of blending in your own stunts with the required ones. It can be a very rewarding experience, and probably the closest any of us will get to becoming an actual stuntman.

Game Informer Magazine
THQ and Paradigm have taken an already white-knuckle ride and added the features that were conspicuously absent the first time around. However, 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.

La série Stuntman est sans conteste passée entre de bonnes mains. Si le principe ne diffère pas fondamentalement du premier volet, tout a été revu et corrigé pour que l'on note une progression à tous les niveaux. Plus accessible, plus complet, plus coloré, ouvert au multijoueur, il s'impose comme une vraie bonne surprise cette année. Dommage en revanche qu'on ne puisse s'essayer qu'à six films.

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. A stuntman's life is hard, but when you pull off that career defining stunt, the pain is a distant memory.

Inhaltlich identisch mit der 360-Variante machen die Stunt-Einlagen rundherum Spaß – auch wenn man angesichts der teil herben Trail-and-Error-Einlagen ein dickeres Frustrations-Fell als gewöhnlich mitbringen muss. Auch der nette, aber weiterhin völlig belanglose Online-Mehrspieler-Modus ist vorhanden, läuft weitestgehend ohne Lags und ist ebenso wenig bevölkert wie im Microsoft-Netzwerk. Kurzum: Trotz kleinerer Maximal-Auflösung bietet Stuntman Ignition auf der PS3 ebenso gute Unterhaltung wie auf der 360 – und das ist in der heutigen von EA Sports-Enttäuschungen getrübten Zeit schon ein kleiner Grund zu feiern!

Für ganz hohe Weihen reicht es allerdings nicht, da zum einem bei der Aufmachung zu viel verschenkt wurde, das Spiel letztendlich zu kurz ausfällt und die Multiplayermodi und die Splitscreen-Varianten für ein Weiterspielen zu schwach sind. Was bleibt ist ein Geheimtipp für frustresistente Spieler, alle anderen sollten erst einmal Probe fahren.

Stuntman Ignition ist ein Rennspiel der erfrischend anderen Art. Allein für die Idee und die stellenweise grandiose Umsetzung, hätten die Entwickler einen Game Oscar verdient. Wer die liebevoll gestalteten Film Trailer gesehen hat, der weiß mit wie viel Engagement die Entwickler zu Werke gegangen sind. Schade ist nur, dass der Schwierigkeitsgrad derart hoch ist, was zusammen mit den späten Stuntansagen und den teilweise extremen Einbrüchen der Framerate für Frustmomente sorgt. Wer sich seine Schneidezähne nicht am Spielecontroller ausbeißen will, muss schon über starke Nerven verfügen. Rennspielprofis die eine echte Herausforderung suchen und Spieler die Frustmomente nicht scheuen, werden mit diesem Titel jedoch bestens bedient – der große Umfang, der für Next-Gen Spieler zudem einen klassischen Mehrspielermodus bereithält, spricht ebenfalls für Stuntman: Ignition!

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. It’s was always going to best enjoyed in small spurts as by its very definition, Stuntman can end up being pretty repetitive, pretty quickly. Either way, there are still quite a few 'punch the air' moments waiting for anyone who gives this unique title a chance.

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. If you are still gun-shy because of the name on the box don’t be. Developer Paradigm has delivered a game that fixes everything that was wrong with the original and expands upon what made it great. While it won’t set the world on fire Stuntman Ignition is a solid addition to any game enthusiasts library.

Stuntman: Ignition is a significant step up from its predecessor, and it's a pretty distinct experience as far as driving games go. The fundamental structure of playing through the same stunt sequence repeatedly will no doubt sour some, but if you can get past that, it can be a blast.

Stuntman: Ignition is a relatively unique title that'll test your urge for perfection. If you don't like trying the same thing over and over again until you've absolutely nailed it, this isn't the game for you. But if that setup appeals to you then you'll find a fair bit to like here. It can be a game of trial-and-error at times, and it can certainly feel repetitive, though that's part of its inherent design.

What it all boils down to is that Stuntman: Ignition isn't a bad game, because I've played many of those and this just isn't one of them. But I also can't say that Stuntman: Ignition is a good game. It's an average game, and I don't recommend a $60 purchase for it. Just like a popcorn flick isn't worth more than a rental, Stuntman: Ignition is ultimately the type of game you'd want to rent. While the multiplayer is fun and the Constructor mode is cool, the Career mode can be a bit short, and the game in general doesn't offer a whole lot to keep you coming back to. Additionally, it's visually generic, although I do applaud its aural presentation. Rent this one first.
