February 27, 2007 - It's been nearly five years since we first hopped behind the wheel to pull off insane Hollywood stunts for fame and fortune. Now in the hands of Paradigm Studios, Stuntman Ignition is poised to bring the stunt driver back into the limelight this summer for Xbox 360, PS3, and PS2. The basic premise of the game remains the same; pull off death-defying stunts with precision driving to create action-packed film sequences. Pull off the stunts to perfection and you'll find your career soaring to new heights. Plus, since this is THQ's take on a franchise previously owned elsewhere, there's obviously a bit more to it this go around.
Stuntman Ignition puts over 25 vehicles at your disposal, including sport cars, motorcycles and even a hovercraft. Each of these will be used to progress through the career mode where you'll work towards unlocking new movie and commercial job opportunities. All told, there are 36 stunt runs spread across 6 themed films and commercials to test your merit in.
The online mode, playable with up to eight players, is where things start to get new and interesting. Here, you'll be able to challenge other stuntmen and steal stunts from them in multiplayer arenas. With the included stunt construction toolkit, you'll be able to plan out your own stunt runs and then take them online to see if anybody can meet your challenge.
How the online mode works exactly is still unknown at this time.
