Original and creative flying game
For a neat twist on the flying sim genre and a change from the usual combat-heavy games like SU-27 Flanker, Stunt Island makes for an original and enjoyable experience that is perfect for both budding film makers and aviation buffs alike. The game presents gamers with their own island to play with and which is populated with various film sets, ranging from an oil rig, to a city and even an aircraft carrier. The general goal is simply to design and complete various stunt-based movies using the vary array of aircraft available to you. To enhance the challenge and entertainment value, players can also place numerous objects, including cameras and props at specific locations in the set, while setting triggers to start actions like camera pans. However, if you don't want to go to the bother of designing your own stunts, you can ask the Stunt Co-ordinator to plan one for you. If you manage to successfully complete your task, you can then go the editing room to cut all your footage together and make your masterpiece, complete with sound effects from the included library. Stunt Island really is a joy from start to finish. It is a game which encourages creativity in the player and which presents ample opportunity to do so, through its many sets, aircraft and stunt options, which combine to offer a massive range of outcomes. Graphics and sound are decent enough, while the various aircraft all handle differently and which present their own unique challenges. This is a game which doesn't really have an ending, thanks to its open ended nature, so it's one you will return to time and time again just to try out something new.
