If you like racing games you would get this game, but if you are more into action games dont get this. This game stinks. The first level was so hard i just stopped playing it. The next time you look for a driving game dont get this.
The game is kind of hard, but pretty fun. The stunt arena is pretty cool because u can make it how u want it to be. The damage is pretty realistic. I personally think that its an all around good and fun game.
I played this game back when it came out on the PS2, and like some of the previous reviewers, thought it was too hard...but once you get in the swing of things and know exactly what you're supposed to do in a scene, it comes pretty natural.
Do not expect to beat a scene on the first try, because you're not going to, you have to play the scene multiple times to get the pattern down and get a feel for the car you are given. This game is all about practice, in every sense of the word.
But the feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment you receive after finishing a movie, or even a scene, is amazing.
And now to my title, while it may not "technically" be a "hidden gem", in a way, it is. So many people have tried this game and failed at it miserably, and now with the many fast paced shooting games that are out in the market, an average gamer can be easily frustrated when having to do the same scene twenty times without completing it, like I have stated before, this game is all about practice.
So, in conclusion, Stuntman is a great game and if you can master it, you can have loads of fun.
On a side note, the sequel, "Stuntman: Ignition" is being released next month, and a demo is out on the Xbox Live Marketplace.
