Jackie Chan Stuntmaster – Consumer Guide

Chi Kong Lui's picture

According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Language, Violence

Parents, who don't mind their kids watching all the punching and kicking found in a typical Power Rangers episode, shouldn't have any issues with Jackie Chan Stuntmaster. Like most of Jackie's actual movies, the game is bloodless and rather family-friendly.

Diehard Jackie Chan fans expecting Jackie Chan Stuntmaster to be on the same caliber as some of today's hottest games will be sorely disappointed at the old-school fighting mechanics and the low-budget look and feel. Its more Big Brawl than Police Story.

Though less demanding fans with more patience and those who actually like classic fighting games such as Double Dragon and Final Fight, may be able to endure some of Jackie Chan Stuntmaster's shortcomings and realize some of its more entertaining qualities. Its also worth mentioning that those who also manage to beat the game will also be treated to a surprisingly interesting secret "Shaolin Temple" level, that pays tribute to the Jackie's Drunken Master films. The stage takes place in ancient China, has Jackie sporting in a traditional Chinese robe and even has a some new Drunken Fist attacks. Lastly, no Jackie Chan production would be complete without outtakes during the credit roll and Jackie Chan Stuntmaster manages to virutally simulate some rather amusing ones in prerendered cut-scenes.
