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?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea I can see them being more problematic on consoles.. it doesn't require much precision to run someone down with the saber either. (11 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: Yes, a little bit OP though. If one charges at you with a horse, you're f'ed unless you can pull off a headshot. Especially on consoles they are hard to hit because of the 'controller' (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And ya gotta count horses 'cause horsing is one of the best things in the game. (4 Hours ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 @GriftGFX: yeah I've noticed the extra revive time. You shouldn't compare ww1 vehicles to modern warfare though as it's simply unfair. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm sure people miss the progression from more recent games tho.. some people are really into that. It's undeniably barebones by comparison. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Have you noticed that you can still be revived waaaay after the "bleed out" period? Still saves a death too.. hah. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's not just the lack of unlocks.. lack of stuff in general. Battlefield 2 still had more vehicle and weapon variety than BF1. Way more. (5 Hours ago)
