REVIEW: Stunt Paradise (2024 Video Game) on Xbox

Review by Jon Donnis
Developed by BrineMedia, "Stunt Paradise" sets out to deliver an adrenaline-fueled experience in the realm of extreme driving and heart-stopping stunts. As a fan of the Trials franchise, the game immediately resonates with its familiar yet refreshing take on the genre, substituting motorbikes with cars while maintaining the arcade-style essence.

Graphically, "Stunt Paradise" offers a simplistic yet stylish visual presentation. The environments vary from sandy deserts and jumping over the Sphynx to sea based levels, to volcanoes and levels and everything inbetween, each providing a distinct backdrop for the exhilarating gameplay. 

One of the game's highlights is the diverse selection of 20 unique cars, although the differences between them remain purely cosmetic. However, this does not detract from the enjoyment as each vehicle offers its own flair to the gameplay.

The initial levels may seem straightforward, but quickly ramps up the challenge, demanding more strategic thinking and precise execution from players. The progression feels natural, ensuring that players are continuously engaged as they tackle increasingly difficult tracks.

Gameplay predominantly unfolds from a side-view perspective, complemented by occasional dynamic camera effects such as slow motion and sweeping shots, adding a cinematic touch to the action. The inclusion of various background elements, such as passing trains and swooping airplanes, adds an element of surprise and excitement to the gameplay, keeping players on their toes throughout.

Level design in "Stunt Paradise" is commendable, featuring well-structured courses with coins to collect and a special star to achieve on each level. Power-ups like speed boosts and strategically placed exploding barrels further enhance the gameplay dynamics, adding layers of excitement and challenge.

Overall, "Stunt Paradise" offers a thoroughly enjoyable gaming experience reminiscent of the early Trials games, before the franchise became overly complex. With its blend of arcade-style driving, challenging tracks, and captivating visuals, it succeeds in delivering heart-pounding thrills.

Looking ahead, one can only hope for continued support from the developers with new tracks and expansions, further enriching the experience for players. With its combination of thrilling gameplay and engaging content, "Stunt Paradise" earns a well-deserved score of 8.5 out of 10, marking it as a standout title in the realm of extreme driving games.

Released on 21st of March at a really competitive price.
