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.

Ignition…is madness. It’s a controlled, entertaining insanity. A visually stunning, incredibly unique take on typical racing games that actually got it right this time. I thought to end on a high note, calling Stuntman Ignition one hell of a ride. Other games are a ride. A Merry-go-round is a “ride". Ignition is a nitro burning merry-go-round with 300 horsepower engine attached to it with the horses spitting bullets out their mouths and BOMBS blowing up in the background spinning crooked on its axis and the whole thing set on fire…

Stuntman: Ignition is a total blast. It has great physics and handling and stunts that are totally insane but also typical of the current Hollywood blockbuster. I'm pretty sure everything you do in this game could be done in real life, if it hasn't been done already. The game is repetitious by design, so if you are looking for a quick day at the races or some instant achievement points you’ll need to keep looking.

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.

PlayStation 3Game 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.

Overall Stuntman Ignition is a highly addictive game; I couldn’t fault it on that at all. No matter how many times you mess up and have to restart a scene there is always that thought of ‘just one more time’ in your head that keeps you going back. To progress with new stunts later on in the game is a nice touch but the rest of it can get a bit repetitive, turn left here, power slide here, jump this bridge etc etc but then there is only so much you can do with a game of this type and it is done very well. It will not last you all year round and most likely you will finish it within a week, but there are multiplayer online options on there and small extras that can still keep you going if you find you finish it and haven’t had enough.

Abwechslungsreiche Filmsets, permanente Action, ein unterhaltsamer Multiplayermodus und eine gute Präsentation machen aus Stuntman: Ignition einen grundsoliden Racer, welcher nun im Gegensatz zum Vorgänger deutlich entschärft wurde. Anfängern sei aber gesagt, dass das Spiel dennoch viel Einarbeitungszeit und vor allem Übung benötigt um wirklich alles gesehen zu haben. Das eingängige Fahrverhalten sowie die Motivation den Highscore zu knacken treiben euch immer wieder ans Pad. Wer über eine durchschnittliche Präsentation und den hohen Schwierigkeitsgrad sowie die kurze Spielzeit von gerade einmal knapp fünf Stunden hinwegsehen kann erhält gute Unterhaltung und viel Abwechslung.

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.

Als mir mein Chefredakteur zu verstehen gab, unser Tester des Vorgängers habe sich damals die Zähne ausgebissen, dachte ich mir noch: „Pff, so schlimm kann Stuntman Ignition fünf Jahre nach dem Erstling schon nicht sein“. Doch als ich selber zum x-ten Mal vergeblich versucht habe, die Regiestunts, die Stuntkette, das schwammige Fahrverhalten des Wagens und das knappe Zeitlimit unter einem Hut zu bekommen, wusste ich genau, was gemeint war. Wer allerdings wie ich eine große Mütze Ehrgeiz aufbringen kann (und vielleicht noch einen Punchingball zum Frustabbau neben der Konsole stehen hat), den wird durchaus das Stuntman-Fieber packen. Runde für Runde im Kreis rumfahren kann ich bei anderen Rennspielen genug, daher ist das Konzept, quasi ein Tony Hawk mit Fahrzeugen, eine nette Abwechslung im Rennspielbereich.

Stuntman: Ignition is a very stylish game and certainly a better one than its predecessor. Whilst the career mode isn’t really that long, at least it will have you working at it for some time to turn all your ratings into five stars and giving yourself the smug satisfaction of doing so.

Stuntman: Ignition is a great follow-up to the fun, albeit challenging, game. You'll have to deal with some pretty frustrating moments and some spotty control, but if you bear with it, you'll find a truly enjoyable experience.

Ignition successfully reinvents the series, making the game more accessible while retaining and expanding upon the great ideas in the original. The points system is challenging and enjoyable, and the arcade-like driving physics keep the game light-hearted, even on your umpteenth attempt at stringing a course. The graphics and sound are a step up from most multi-generation titles, and the cohesiveness of the package just gives off the feeling that the developers really cared. Don't let the name steer you away - Stuntman: Ignition is a great arcade driving game, loaded with extra modes and features to keep you busy for a long time.

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.

באופן כללי סטאנטמן איגנישן הוא משחק מהנה למדי. הנהיגה מהנה ומאתגרת, המסלולים בנויים לא רע ואפילו התוצר הסופי - הסרט - מוצג בצורה מהנה בפרומואים שהוכנו לו מראש. כל זה, לדאבוני, לא אומר שהמשחק מתאים לכולם. שיטת ה"ניסוי וטעיה" שולטת פה ואם אין לכם כוח להשקיע בכל מסלול, תגלו שההנאה שלכם מסתיימת מהר מהצפוי.

Ein Kindheitstraum korrespondiert mit einem dramatischen Inferno aus Chaos und Katastrophe. Stuntman: Ignition zeigt trotz des für Profis zu geringeren Umfangs, dass ein neues Entwickler Studio nicht unbedingt als Macher halbherziger Fortsetzungen geahndet werden muss. Nein, ganz im Gegenteil. Ignition punktet mit rasantem, im Vergleich zum Original unangetasteten Gameplay und einer für NextGen-Verhältnisse exquisiten Optik. Da können kleinere Ruckler gerne verziehen werden. Ein wenig sauer stößt dagegen der minderwertige Mehrspieler-Modus auf, weswegen der Sprung in die 80er-Wertung nur knapp verwehrt bleibt. In diesem Bereich hätte Paradigm sicherlich mehr Zeit investieren sollen.

Xbox 360Gamer 2.0
In the end, this is the same kind of game as the original. It's much more polished and rewarding to play, but it still requires a lot of trial-and-error and quick reflexes. If you were completely turned off by the gameplay in the first game, then you should pass on this one. But if you're willing to give it your all, this game can feel really rewarding. The game is short, so it's hard to recommend it at its sixty-dollar price tag. If you've got the patience, Stuntman: Ignition is a perfect rental title, and a fun Hollywood experience that you won't find anywhere else.

Es macht nach wie vor Spaß, sich durch die anspruchsvollen Szenen zu kämpfen, manchmal sogar zu quälen und schließlich in den schönen Widerholungen die Früchte seiner Arbeit zu genießen. Aber das z.B. die eigenen fahrerischen Leistungen nicht in den Trailern auftauchen, mindert das Vergnügen etwas. Die zusätzlichen Inhalte wie Stunt-Arena oder die Online-Duelle auf 360 –die PS2 bleibt im Splitscreen offline- bleiben alle im Stadium „nett, aber letztlich belanglos“ hängen. Vielleicht hätte Paradigm etwas mehr Risiko in Kauf nehmen, mehr eigene Ideen einbringen und das Spiel mit einer nochmals verfeinerten Kulisse ausstatten sollen. Dann nämlich hätte Ignition die Chance gehabt, in die Wertungssphären des sechs Jahre alten Vorgängers zu stoßen. So bleibt unter dem Strich eine klasse Präsentation, aber letztlich nur gute und etwas zu kurze Unterhaltung.

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 solid game and certainly has its entertaining moments. I would have liked the main game to offer some more missions, and to be a little better in the level design so you know what’s coming up ahead but it remains entertaining from start to finish.

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.

It's a great game for its concept and it certainly packs an explosion, although the formality of the heavy trial and error requiring you to repeat sequences over and over will grow frustrating, so patience is defiantly needed here. The career length isn't long-lasting, with estimations near 10 hours, adding the repetitive education involved and along with the other modes you can spend a reasonable time for replay value. If you can excuse the dawdling requirement and can exercise your determination then you're in for an exciting experience in Stuntman Ignition.

To put it simply, Stuntman: Ignition does what it claims to do fantastically well and anyone will undoubtedly have great fun with it at first. The only thing to consider is if you're the type of meticulous gamer who exudes the repeat until perfect approach to things needed to really get the most out of the game. If you are then great, add another ten percent to the score and be happy, unfortunately I'm really not and despite all the initial fun I had there came a point where it started to feel like being a movie stuntman really was more of a job than a game.

Itse en kuulu tähän väestöryhmään, mutta pidän kyllä autoilusta, toiminnasta ja räjähdyksistä siinä missä kuka tahansa keskimääräinen miespuolinen. Stuntman Ignition jätti kuitenkin varsin kylmäksi juuri siksi, että potentiaalisesti kovinkin hohdokkaasta hommasta on saatu jotain kovasti SA-INT:n toimintaa muistuttavaa: saman asian likimain päämäärätöntä toistoa, takaraivossa musertava tieto siitä, ettei tämä kyllä nytkään onnistu, ja vaikka onnistuisikin, saatava palkkio vaihtelee pienestä olemattomaan. Tyydytys nappiin menneestä kohtauksesta on kyllä joltinenkin, mutta se ei riitä korvaamaan turhautumista epäonnistuneista yrityksistä. Jaksoin pelata pari ensimmäistä leffaa mitenkuten, minkä jälkeen totesin, että olen korkean verenpaineen riskiryhmässä ilman tätäkin.

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. For those who are able to look past the repetitive nature of the game, this Stuntman has a lot to offer and can be fun once the camera starts rolling. I highly recommend renting this one before considering a purchase if you’re a casual fan but either way you shouldn’t miss this game.

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.

Like its predecessor, Stuntman: Ignition is strong in concept and weak in execution. It's a trip to be able to work your way up the ranks, but it's far too repetitious and difficult and it could have been a lot more enjoyable. The online game and various mini-games help things out, though, and make it worthy of a rental. Hopefully, development takes a third stab at the idea and -- like a good stuntman -- finally nails it.

PlayStation 3PSX Extreme
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.

Para aqueles que apreciaram a primeira versão, "Stuntman: Ignition", mesmo sem apresentar muitas novidades, vale pelo banho de tecnologia que a nova geração de consoles pode proporcionar. Contudo, não é o suficiente para nutrir muita expectativa, senão de alguns dias de entretenimento, mas, ainda que se trate de um título bastante acessível, o excesso de tentativa e erro pode afugentar e frustrar o perfil de jogador, digamos assim, menos paciente.

Stuntman: Ignition is a niche game meant for niche gamers. This title really isn't for anyone who's prone to violent outbursts when he loses a fighting game or misses a note in Guitar Hero, but it's still a lot more accessible than it could have been. It would have been nice if the extra modes were more polished and exciting, but for those who don't mind endless repetition and an old-school gaming philosophy, the Stuntman franchise is still a perfect fit.

So what do we got here? Stuntman Ignition is a decent game that has the parts of a great game. Add alcohol or any other mind altering substance to the mix, and some friends, and all of sudden the game could be insanely fun. But a game should be fun enough to be enjoying alone and not just with company. Grab this one (or maybe just rent it) if you plan on have family coming into town, or see yourself getting excited every time a monster truck rally comes to town. This game will have some fans out there that can appreciate what’s done here, but it’s definitely not a showstopper, not by any stretch.

The multiplayer options are rubbish, and no-one plays. The single player ranges from easy to improbable and getting five stars takes near impossible levels of patience. To top it off, the game looks average at best; there are some pretty effects, but generally its all a bit sub-par. Extreme difficulty should also not be an excuse for a paltry amount of content. The game is also criminally short, however you look at it, and the new content is horrendously overpriced considering it takes about 30 minutes to complete. Its clearly not just me that 'didn't get' Stuntman (the publisher and developer excuse). With better graphics, audio and more content, this would have been a worthwhile game. As is, whilst not terrible, is very average.

I was really looking forward to Stuntman: Ignition. The original game was quirky enough to warrant high hopes. Unfortunately, just about everything that hampered the original is back to do the hampering again. There are some strong spots, but the constant repetition will drive you kookoo. The basic concept of the series, though, remains strong. I'd love to see development iron out the problems. And, hopefully, it won't take another five years for that to happen.

Summing up Stuntman Ignition appears to be an amazing package, and one I can say yes to that being true… but only on the basis of when things go right. The problem here is that you get around twenty percent of things right first time and spend the other eighty wanting to smash your head against a brick wall – because you failed a scene, again, and again, and again. This game could have quite simply been “superb” but the frustration factor from how unforgiving the game is… is, quite frankly crap and as such has left me with no desire what so ever to play this game again.

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%. The online community has already dwindled down significantly. Ranked matches are few and far between over the last week or so, which gives me an uneasy feeling about the high percentage of 360 games that will be dead entirely due to every shooter released in the last two years featuring LIVE support. The field of edgy online driving games is becoming similiarly over-saturated.

Största behållningen av Stuntman Ignition är de lagom corny fejkfilmer som visas när du är klar med en inspelning, och dem rekommenderar jag att du letar reda på på Youtube istället för att köpa det här spelet.
