An extremely hard game, recomended only to gameing experts!

Excerpt: For Christmas 2005 one of the games on my Christmas wish list was Stuntman and thanks to my partner I was lucky or as I can say now I have played the game Unlucky enough to receive it. *** The Creators *** Stuntman is created by Atari games and Reflections Interactive.
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...
Summary: Despite the 2 star score, I do actually, begrudgingly, like Stuntman. It's just such a shame that there are so many flaws that ruin this game. As a number of other reviewers have pointed out here, Stuntman's single greatest talent is its ability to make you take just one more go.
Summary: I found Stuntman to be disappointing and frustrating. The game requires you to perform precise series of tasks with no scope creativity outside of the stunt-creator mode. Having the "director" barking orders made it feel like being herranged from the back seat by a disgruntled mother-in-law.
Summary: The idea was so good, crashing through walls, jumping over rivers, high speed chases, what more could you ask for? But in reality it is not so good, sloppy controls, poor handling cars and you are never really sure if your heading in the right direction!
Summary: I can't play this game. I just cannot do it, any of it. Most people seem to agree that Movie 3 is where this game starts getting too difficult. Well, let me admit, much to my shame, that I wouldn't have seen ANY other levels except the first without using a cheat code.
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.
Summary: This game received a lot of hype before release, building it up to be one of the best games the playstation 2 has seen. However, while the game is relatively unique I found myself giving up on the whole thing by half way through the fourth movie.
Summary: It's an ok game, but feels like Reflections forgot to test it on anyone before launch. Some of the levels leave you scratching your head trying to learn them. One example early on is "left at the first container'... you turn left at the junction... 'you went the wrong way'... game over... hmmm.
