Have you always wanted to be in the movies? Now you can, as a steel-nerved stuntman on the search for fame and fortune behind the scenes of Hollywood blockbusters. From the masterminds behind the popular Driven video game comes Stuntman, an action-packed thrill-ride through the streets and across the back lots of Hollywood. Rise from rookie driver to hero of the silver screen. Do you have what it takes? In the world of stunt driving, fear is failure. One slip and your silver screen dreams are over. The higher you climb, the higher the stakes. Grip the wheel, hit the gas, chase the glory.
In Stuntman, you'll perform dangerous stunts in three or four vehicles as you play the part of a Hollywood stuntman for hire. You'll need to be good: the stunts will get harder, and you must accumulate skills to progress from low-budget productions to multimillion-dollar Hollywood blockbusters. Each stunt consists of a series of clearly defined objectives, which can range from 180-degree spins to perfectly timed jumps, dramatic barrel rolls, and T-bone smashes. To succeed, the player must achieve all or some of each scene's set objectives. Stunts take place on movie sets in six different countries around the world; completing each stunt rewards you with bonus items for use in the Stunt Arena, which you create yourself. Stuntman was developed with the help of one of the movies' most experienced stuntmen, Vic Armstrong.See all Product description

You may recognize that the stunts in the game were based on real movie stunts like in Hooper, Dukes of Hazzard, Indiana Jones, and James Bond.
Unfortunately, the game is ridiculously hard and unforgiving, killing most of the fun of playing it. It is a poor reason to give the game longevity by making you repeating the scenes about 20 times to get it somewhat correct to move on in the career mode. In the 1st couple of scenes, you drive a muscle car that doesn't accelerate very well and you are chasing another car. If you fall too far behind, you fail the scene. So if you make even the slightest mistake, you cannot possibly catch up to the lead car.
Before each mission, a cutscene plays that gives you some insight into how stunt work is done, with careful planning and practice, yet when you do the stunt, you have no information about the stunt at all and are reacting to the director barking out orders like "pass on the left" or "hit the barrels" which gives you little time to react. And you have to do all the objectives in series in one take. The physics are unforgiving, and the cars don't handle well at all.
I struggled through this game all the way up to the last James Bond type Movie, where I just got fed up. They finally give you a fast enough car to drive, but its so ridiculously light that the wheels hardly stay on the ground. And its so delicate, that even the slightest bump will flip the car over and wreck it.
So what should have been the most fun mission in the game turned out to be the straw that broke the camel's back.
In summary, playing this game feel like you are threading a needle perfectly the first time, then having to do it over and over and over again. Its nerve-racking, frustrating, and pointless.
Get Grand Theft Auto instead and do your own stunts your own way whenever you want with whatever car you get.
As for the controls, they are something to get used to. Your average racing game will have X button to accelerate, Square button to brake and reverse, and the R1 button for handbrake. On stuntman this all the same, but the handbrake is moved to either the O, or Triangle button. Why this is neccasary, i have not the slightest idea, since the R1 button does nothing anyway. i also found it a bit bothersome that you were forced to work with the controls they gave you, there wasn't a certain number of predecided settings, let alone a custom configuration.
As for the driving mechanics of the game, they also take some getting used to. Every car will handle a bit differently and since you are in and out of new cars throughout the entire game, it does take awhile to familiarize yourself with the controls. in general the cars glide a bit more often than in most games, which can be both a good and a bad thing. It can be good when trying to make quick U turns, and bad when trying to weave in and out of traffic, and both are equally used throughout the game. This is only a small problem, because after about a 1/2 hour of actually driving, you get the light, or sometimes rough touch that the vehicles require.
Another very nice aspect of the game is the stunt builder. Through the stunt builder you can actually set up your own show in a big arena full of fans, complete with roll bars jumps and loops, and then wreak havoc on it, and ultimately destroy your vehicle. Through the career mode, you gain more and more complex toys to insert into your vitual destruction derby, from stacked barrels, to a giant loop.
In conclusion, you must understand that this game is EXTREMELY difficult. You will find yourself restarting the scenes of the first movies anywhere from 75, to even 200 times before you have 100% completion. Once you reach the final movie, you may find yourself restarting 100 to 250 times, depending on how good a driver you are. The game wil definately test your patience, but once you finish a movie and see that commercial, there really is no better feeling because you know that you finally did it!
Many people complain about the long load time everytime you have to restart a scene. To remedy this problem, simply open the disc tray once you power on PS2, and switch your system's speed, load times will be much faster!
