DOS - 1990
Description of Stunt Driver
Stunt Driver is an oldie stunt car simulation by Spectrum Holobyte featuring a 1966 Shelby Mustang ready for you to drive to perfection. The game is very similar to Distinctive Software's Stunts both in game design and premise, although not nearly as popular.
There are various tracks to race on, ranging from a oval training course to more tricky stunt courses with loopings, bridge jumps and so on. As in Stunts, the game also offers a course editor that allows you to design your own challenges. On every course you will have to qualify by beating a set time in training mode, enabling you then to enter a race with up to 3 computer-controlled opponents. But then there's also the option to link-up another computer to play against a friend (modem, cable, or network), something not found in the more popular Stunts. The graphics are okay for its time as are the controls, but one of the best things in technical terms is the excellent sound even through the good old PC speaker. During the race, there are various views to quickly look what's going on behind or left of you and the VCR-like recorder enables you to review your race later on.
Overall, Stunt Driver is a fun game that definitely deserves as much attention as better-known and better-sold Stunts (although it is admittedly inferior). Unfortunately, the game has a lot of problems on modern computers. A slow-down util is a must for anything faster than a 486, as the in-game clock and the computer opponents won't work if your computer is too fast. Highly recommended, especially in multiplayer mode.

Personally, I liked this one over Stunts. You could race more than one car at a time (even though you could only drive one yourself, it was a badass car). And you could ram and interact with the other cars and take them out of the race. I remember always getting behind the cars as they waited for the draw bridge...ramming them, and sending them crashing over the bridge or into the water.

This is the first game that my friends and I played over modem as kids. The two houses were across the street from each other, so I would run back and forth between houses to try to troubleshoot the connection problems (since we couldn't use the phone because, you know, the modem was using it). We had to ask our moms not to use the phone so we could get it working. When it finally connected, we thought we broke the computer because it started making a bunch of loud, obnoxious noises! So we shut the computer off. Then our friend came back over and informed us that modems are supposed to make those loud noises. lol. Oh, good times. Great game, btw. I loved the track editor.
