Despite its detrimentally frustrating difficulty, the original Stuntman on PS2 had one huge positive going for it: a kick-ass concept. Relocating the racing genre to a blockbuster movie set is genius, as driving through explosions and rocketing off ramps is way more exciting than simply motoring towards the finish line.
The 360 / PS3 / PS2 sequel, Stuntman: Ignition, is hoping to do that concept the justice it deserves. As Games Radar reported in their recent hands-on impressions, the gameplay is much easier to master. And with larger, more spectacular set pieces, the satisfaction of pulling off the perfect sequence of stunts is much greater.
