Infogrames, Inc. has shipped "Stuntman," the latest game in its smash Atari line-up, to retail stores this week for the PS2 computer Entertainment system. Developed by Reflections Interactive Limited, the company behind the best-selling "Driver" series, "Stuntman" thrusts players into the middle of Hollywood-style action-packed films, completing death-defying stunts for a series of movies and building a career to become an A-list stunt driver.

"Combining precision driving skills with the excitement of Hollywood action, 'Stuntman' puts a whole new spin on the driving genre," said Jean-Philippe Agati, senior vice president and general manager of Infogrames' Los Angeles studio. "Working with record-holding stunt man Vic Armstrong, we've created white-knuckled, death-defying stunts representative of one of the coolest jobs out there. The Reflections team has implemented the most advanced physics and damage models ever in video games. The end result is something totally unique and completely fun."

As a stunt man, players travel to movie sets around the world, filming scenes for a variety of high-action flicks. After completing a series of stunts for each movie,
players can watch a full- motion video trailer for the film that includes their gameplay stunts spliced in. Top stunt drivers will unlock bonus items, such as jumps, burning hoops and stacked vehicles, that can be used in the game's fully customizable "Stunt Arena."

With 40 vehicles to drive and countless challenging stunts to perform, "Stuntman" gives players access to all the daredevil action they crave. "Stuntman" is available at most major retail stores this week for an estimated street price of $49.95 and is rated "T" for Teens.
