Jackie Chan Stuntmaster focuses on both Chan's martial arts expertise and his agility as a stuntman. The fighting system is based on his signature fighting style--in addition to throws and combos, specialized moves are incorporated to allow players to use chairs, boxes, ladders, bottles, and even a fish. At the conclusion of the game, players are treated to a "making of" video, which showcases footage of Chan at his motion-capture session.
Like his movies, the game does have some semblance of a plot. It seems that Jackie's grandfather has been kidnapped (while Jackie was stuffing his face at a café, no less). The action star must fight his way through a number of back alleys and abandoned factories to rescue him. To carry out his mission, Jackie must collect red and gold dragon tokens and take on some pretty mean bosses.
Short movie scenes feature a computer-generated Chan with all the facial expressions fans have come to know and love as well as his own voice acting. Jackie Chan Stuntmaster might not exactly be A Rumble on the Bronx, but it is the next best thing to seeing Jackie on the silver screen. --Robb Guido
