Summary: I have played hundreds of different videogames and this one is by far the most frustrating. It is almost impossible to do some of the stunts because if you mess up in the beginning of a run, it will screw up the timing for stunts you have to perform later in the run (e.g., having to jump through a gap on a train moving across the tracks). I had to repeat some levels 60+ times before accomplishing the stunt and being able to move onto the next level.
Summary: Stuntman puts you behind the wheel as a stunt driver in six films that lovingly knock off classics ranging from 007 to Indiana Jones to the Dukes of Hazzard. The best label for the gameplay is a cocktail that blends Pilotwings with Gran Turismo's license tests: Hurtling along preset paths, you must guide a vehicle through a precise series of jumps, swerves, and other hair-raising maneuvers.
Summary: This game is by far the hardest one I have ever played. but I did beat the game it just took me a million times on each level to get through after ripping the game out of my ps2 several times and throwing it across the room. Buyer's beware!! this one is HARD!!!!!
Summary: Even though you can skip the pre-start stage footage/scenes, it's annoying and in the way when you just want to goto the start of the next stage. Also, the game has to reload to restart the same stage again. 'A Whoppin/Hollerin' feels like its the last stage which is usually the hardest. But the biggest problem with the game is that if you make the slightest mistake during a take, you have to start over again.
Summary: Ok...it's not hard to find the gist of this game. The stunts are cool, yes, but it's unreasonably hard. I end up playing each level 15 or more times before I can beat them. If you ask me it ruins some of the things that should be fun like crushing cars in a monster truck rally. You are timed, so it makes it even harder, and I assure you that if you don't have a lot of patience, you'll end up burning the CD.
After the novelty wears off, you'll wonder why you bought it

Summary: Stuntman is extremely overated. The theme is interesting enough that I can see why some people defend the game so strongly. Acting out stunts from your favorite movies is something anyone wants to do. Yet poor design decisions and sloppy controls has made Stuntman much, much harder than it needs to be. You MUST rent this game before you buy it, trust me. I just don't like being forced to do the same, limited thing over and over again in a game.
Summary: The graphics for this game are good, but it is too hard. If you do 1 mistake you have to start over again. Also the time limit is much too short. I would recommend this game to people who are good at hard games and enjoy car games.
Summary: First, I am not a big-time gamer. I play the occasional game. I thought Stuntman looked like fun, all those cool stunts similar to the movies I grew up watching. However, after several hours of frustration I had managed to complete only a couple of stunts. The cars handle badly, the timing is very hard, even little things like a road sign stop your car like a steel wall. The reload time is terrible.
Summary: I saw this game at Blockbuster and I thought that I would fall in love with it. That is not the case. As you have read reviews from other players you can tell that this game is entirely too frustrating and the load screens are absolutely annoying. They are. Don't buy this game, instead I would suggest you merely rent it. Graphics and handling are good though.
