Stuntman: Ignition is the sequel to the video game Stuntman for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 2. On April 3, 2005, it was announced that THQ had acquired the rights to the Stuntman franchise from original publishers Atari. Also announced was that Paradigm Entertainment has developed the game for next-generation platforms.New to the Stuntman series is the "strike" system which is more lenient than the scoring system in the original stuntman. A certain number of strikes means the director automatically calls the entire scene to be shot again. 'Easy Mode' can be activated to allow for more strikes (resulting in the player's final score being halved) and regardless of getting all strikes, players can carry on the scene. Also, by completing certain sequences, the player will be nominated for a certain scene in the Taurus World Stunt Awards.
