Images of Stuntman Ignition

Two screenshots for Stuntman's sequel, which THQ just announced on new-gen consoles. Hopefully, it'll be better than the first one.

as with all sequels:)

but i just hope THQ haven't dumbed it down for the players that gave up after 10 tries of a stunt. I know I tried each stunt about 50 times before moving on. Insanely hard game, which was why it was fun. It took skill, practice, and precision.

Edit: just realised these guys made spy hunter and terminator 3. next!

The first one had some of the most amazing physics in a console game ever. Driver4 and Parallel lines used the same engine more succesfully (or perhaps not driver4).

Just making a pile of cars in the stunt ramp mode and flying through them (with insane slowdown) was more wow than the PS2 perhaps ever had.

Carmageddon1 PC, Carmageddon2 PC and Stuntman went down in history as the best inhouse physics engines of their time.

Unfortunately Stainless Software made the quite poor Novadrome for XBLA instead of making a kickass Carmageddon remake (which was hella fun in LAN), and by the looks of these screens, Reflections isnt going next-gen with this one either.

There's also a fairly useless CGI teaser on Gametrailers.

what do you mean by that? this is not reflections. They are doing Driver 4 with ubisoft, but this is getting done by the guys behind crap like spy hunter, terminator 3, etc. i wish reflections and ubisoft took this game on. biggest next gen disappointment along with PDZ, and PS3.

The First one was a very interesting Game with very nice Physics.

Adventure Racing anyone? :D
The First Screenshot reminds me in SPEED DEVILS Online (Dreamcast).

The Screens look's really shitty, but with a Dreamcast VGA Box on a Plasma it look's great for a 1999 Game:

The first one was really great! I really loved it and was always thinking if and when the second part will be released. Damn the grafics, give me the old physics and gameplay.

The game has a cool concept to it. Looking forward to those (sometimes very hard) Missions!

Scarface: Oh I see. I thought they were working on this :(

/me scratches this off the list permanently.

Oh and since DavidDC mentioned the DC, I'd like to give props to Vigilante's 8. It was a mixed bag but still closest to Carmageddon or Twisted Metal we've been for the past 6 years (twisted metal black was last-gen meh).

About the game

What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks yeah I would hope so. The fact it's $60 right now in this stage is rough though (47 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 I'm assuming since it's 1st party there's a decent chance of it eventually becoming good. (57 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks so I'm thinking I may wait to buy Sea of Thieves when it actually has good quest content. Game is REAL shallow (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth like in dark souls where i mapped run/dash/roll to one of the paddles so i could run (b-button) while controlling the camera (right thumbstick) at the same time. (6 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth you can feel the difference in material quality in every part. 3 different swappable thumbstick heights is also nice, and the programmable and swappable trigger pads beneath are also nice in some gams (6 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @droezelke: i had the standard one pad. i liked it, but then it was in an (ahem..) accident. So i had to get a new one anyway. the elite is really nice. d-pad is very good. good grip (6 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Melmoth: Standard. The elite is too expensive. I can buy multiple games for that money :-) (6 Hours ago)
