What, yet another new game from CodeMasters? Phew, these boys are busy. This one's a sort of follow-up to Super Stuntman, and it's a nice little runner (20 thousand on the clock, squire, new carburettor, and a bargain at seven grand). The view's from above, and you have to whizz through a course, avoiding all the usual rocks (slow you down), mines (blow you up) and, a little unsportingly, all the bullets coming from the other cars. Zoom over water by means of a ramp or a bridge or drive through it at about 2 mph - it's your choice. And best of all, you do all this in the tastiest of red gleamy Italian motors. First up is the Lambo, and thereafter there are four more courses, all of which you must negotiate in a brand new car. (Sadly you don't get to keep them afterwards. ) In fact, you even get three lives, which is one major difference from real stunt car racing (one life). If you can get through all the course, avoid all the various buildings you're constantly being invited to crash into, and keep away from those murderous copter chappies - well, you're a better driver than I, and to be honest that wouldn't be hard. Fab stuff, and I rather suspect there may just be time for another game...
