Stuntman: Ignition - first look hands-on

The developers of Stuntman: Ignition are promising a total of six films and 36 individual scenes in which to test your daredevil nerve. They're not revealing the other four genres yet, but previously released screens (click the Images tab above for a peek) suggest a desert-based apocalyptic theme. Or is that desert substituting for Mars? They did let us know that of the over 25 unique vehicles available, a hover car, dune buggy, armored truck, motorcycle, semi and fire truck are included. We tested the aforementioned muscle car, an exotic sports car, a police cruiser and a pickup truck - all handled appropriately differently.

Stuntman: Ignition is shaping up to be a refreshing, if difficult, twist on the average racer. In the coming weeks, we'll have more details on the Stunt Constructor, which enables you to piece together your own explosion and wreckage-filled scenes using the environments and set pieces from the single player campaign. Also watch for coverage of the anticipated online component, where rival drivers "steal" stunts from each other. We don't even know what that means, but we're excited.
