En mi opinión personal, diré que Stunt GP es una muestra más del impresionante catálogo del que dispone Dreamcast, el contenido de este GD da una idea de lo que puedes encontrar en los 128 bits de Sega; a mi me ha gustado mucho, dejándome con el muchas horas de entretenimiento sin complejos ni complicaciones superfluas, no llega al sobresaliente, pero le falta muy poco.

Gut so, denn das Rennspiel der Worms-Erfinder punktet gerade dort, wo andere Genrevertreter enttäuschen. Dank überzeugender KI, Boxengasse und (zugegebenermaßen sehr abwechslungsarmen) Stuntelementen wird ein Rennen richtig interessant und bringt immer wieder aufs Neue Spaß. Die gut ausgearbeiteten einzelnen Modi motivieren zudem dank vieler freispielbarer Autos und Strecken, so dass man die kleinen grafischen Schwächen bald vergisst. Leider haben die Entwickler beim Feinschliff geschlampt. Des öfteren wird man nämlich von fiesen Bugs genervt. Wie schon erwähnt, bleiben Gegner manchmal ohne Grund auf der Stelle stehen bzw. liegen, ein Bandenkontakt kann einen schon mal weit in die Lüfte katapultieren und, was das absolut schlimmste ist, es kommt häufig zu Abstürzen (meist bei den selben Strecken). Dieses Manko nimmt einen mit der Zeit einfach die Lust am Weiterspielen. Wirklich zum heulen, denn ansonsten wäre Stunt GP für mich ein echter Überraschungs-Hit gewesen!

With all the great games out this holiday season it is likely you will pass over this gem. However for anyone who is interested in taking my advice, at least rent it you will not regret it.

Ik vraag me af of Infogrames niet wat te haastig is geweest met het dumpen van Stunt GP. Deze racer is best vermakelijk. Helaas wordt het op den duur wel wat eentonig.

Stunt GP is daarom geen baanbrekend supergame, maar biedt meer raceplezier dan vele zogenaamde ernstige rally/F1/offroad-games.

Achtung, fertig, los: Stunt GP macht von der ersten Minute an richtig Spaß. Selbst etwas wildere Sprünge oder Loopings gelingen praktisch sofort. Das Tempo stimmt, die Pisten sind interessant und abwechslungsreich gestaltet. Auch die nette Idee mit den Boxenstopps haben die Entwickler gut umgesetzt – ich empfinde den zusätzlichen taktischen Einschlag nie als nervig, sondern als zusätzliches Spannungselement. So perfekt das Spiel für den Adrenalinstoß zwischendurch geeignet ist, auf Dauer ist das Fahrverhalten der Vehikel etwas zu simpel. Nach relativ kurzer Zeit hatte ich sie fast perfekt im Griff, seitdem konnte ich keine neuen Slides oder Spezialmanöver mehr herauskitzeln. Fazit: Ein gutes Rennspiel, aber Experten fühlen sich auf Dauer dezent unterfordert.

Stunt GP is so close to brilliance. It boasts a plush interface, excellent track design, exciting multiplayer and a lot of nice ideas, but things like the time limit in stunt mode, and the difficulty level of the single player game keep it from attaining classic status. And call me a cynic, but even though it separated the tricks from the racing, I thought last year's Re-Volt did the R/C thing with a touch more aplomb.

Stunt GP is a fine, fine game. One of those that comes out of nowhere and steals a small one-up one-down place in the corner of your heart. There are a few niggles such as the length of the game which is a bit short plus the fact that it can be a bit easy when you get some better equipment for you RC car but on the whole, these are only artificial complaints. The only serious problem is that Stunt GP is more appropriate on a console as opposed to the PC version reviewed (of course, this isn't Team 17's fault and console versions should be out now too). It's hard getting into a game, which is suited towards 10-20 minute fly-by games, when it takes 10-20 minutes to boot up your PC.

Malgré le peu de concurrence qu'il y a dans le domaine des jeux de course mettant à l'honneur des voitures télécommandées, Stunt GP aura du mal à s'attirer les faveurs du public tant l'intérêt du jeu est limité de par sa répétitivité et le manque de sensations qu'il procure.

Stunt GP est donc un bon jeu mais qui n'exploite pas à fond toutes les bonnes idées qu'ils possèdent. Il aurait fallu intégrer plus de cascades, plus de voitures différentes et plus de vues. Reste que devant le peu de concurrence dans cette catégorie de jeu, Stunt GP fait bonne impression et parviendra à satisfaire les amateurs de voitures téléguidées. Les autres risqueraient en effet de s'en lasser très rapidement.

When it comes down to it though, Stunt GP isn't a terrible game, it's just that it could have been so much more. There are times when you're playing it when you'll be in the heat of a race, knocking against the other racers, and the constant jumps just add to the enthusiasm. Those times are few and far between though, and instead of that fast and furious racing that's so enjoyable you'll be met with constantly going around an uninspired level with no other cars. Considering this makes up a good amount of what you'll be doing in Stunt GP it boils down to a boring experience. Do yourself a favor, pick up San Francisco Rush or Gran Turismo 3, and wait till Team 17 gets it act together before you buy one of their products.

It all comes down to the entertainment value. Sadly, there isn't much to value about Stunt GP. You could play them until you're blue in the face, but I might as well save you the trouble and tell you that it isn't going to get any better. There are lot of great stunt racing games out right now (such as Kinetica), so there is no excuse to get this game. Do not bother renting it either. I've played more racing games this year than I care to remember, and none of them are as bad as this.

Halfhearted racing is what you're left with, though, and even if you're still hankering for something along those lines--despite the existence of RC de GO!, Gadget Racers, and R/C Revenge 2--you'll still likely be disappointed by Stunt GP. It's recommended that you pass this one up and wait for a more solid entry in the genre. One is bound to surface soon enough.

However, the gameplay is just so generic that even the track designs couldn’t save this title. Perhaps if the developer had lost the annoying camera and concentrated on some solid racing this game could have been fun.
