Jackie Chans Stuntmaster
If you have seen any of the Jackie Chan movies and liked them, then you should like this game. Its fun with a easy learning curve. Just pop it in, turn it on and start playing. The opening sequence plays out just like a Chan movie with the kidnapping of Jackie's grandfather. The game actually starts in a small area that is a nexus for the levels. If you are just starting out you can use this area to learn the buttons and some of the other moves. From here you go to the levels.
Now for the game play, the fighting is easy to do, doing combos is just depending on how many times you hit the punch and kick and in what order. The levels are straight forward, no real choice in where to go, kind of like the old 2d side scrollers like Double Dragon. The only real problems with this is that at some points your timing has to be prefect or you can loss life, get pushed back or even loss a life, either way it can get pretty annoying at some points. The other thing is that some times you get surrounded by three bad guys and it can hurt a lot. But all in all this is a great game it plays like a Jackie Chan movie.
