Reflections has done it again!!

User Rating: 9.5 | Stuntman PS2
From Reflections, the creators of the Destruction Derby and the Driver games comes Stuntman, a game which puts you in the shoes of a daredevil stuntman performing stunts for all kinds of action movies.

The first movie you'll be doing a stunt-double for in the Career mode is a gangster comedy similar to Guy Ritchie's "Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels" and "Snatch". Each movie consists of a few scenes. During each scene you'll be performing a series of stunts before the shooting of the scene is complete. The stunts you'll be executing could be something as simple as just hitting cardboard boxes in alleyways to something as tricky as jumping from a freeway onto a moving train. After you've completed every scene for a movie, you're rewarded with a movie trailer showing clips of stunts oyu performed for that movie.

Aside from the Career mode, Reflections added two other modes. Driving Games and Stunt Arena. Driving Games lets you practice your driving skills. I liked it when it in the Driver games, but here I don't really bother playing them. Stunt Arena is a mode where you can create your own stunts using all kinds of stuff. If you're a fan of the Tony Hawk games, you've got yourself a great mode here.

So far everything sound simple, but it's actually quite the opposite. This is without a doubt the most frustrating game I've ever played. You want to make a flawless run and it can't get more frustrating when you've made it to the end of a scene, only to be forced to start over from the beginning because you've made the wrong turn or failed the last stunt (which is usually the most important one) Even though the game is very frustrating, there is always something which makes you want to get it another try, and hopefully make it past that hard part.

In order to fully enjoy Stuntman, you need to: 1: Like driving games. 2: Be able to accept the hard difficulty. This game is hard for sure, but being a stunt performer is a difficult task, right?
