As it turns out, some Hollywood moviemaker has chosen Lego Island as the location for a brand new action film. Quite bizarre when you think about it, but great all the same, especially with regard to job prospects and for the economy of the island. Anyway, this big movie is obviously going to require some big stunts so who better to cast for the role of lead stuntman than the fabulous Pepper Roni? Exactly.

Taking on the role of Pepper, players dash from shoot to shoot as they drive, fly, jump, and skate through five extreme stunt games, which take them all over the vast Lego Island. Along the way there are a variety of sub-quests and puzzles, which involve Pepper's friends, as well as the mischievous Brickster, who can regularly be found on set, trying to spoil each scene. Nasty piece of work, that one!

Just some of the predicaments players will find themselves in include chasing the nasty Brickster through heavy traffic, riding a motorbike over a construction site, flying a plane, rollercoaster style, and cloud-surfing on a sky board.

Aside from the main mode, there's also a fair bit of fun to be had with the game's customisation options, which allow players to change the colour, style and appearance of most objects on the Island. Also, completion of the sub-quests and an observant eye during the game rewards players with trading cards, which can be collected and used to unlock sub-games.

If you were Seth Brundle and you tried to teleport a copy of Stuntman, but a couple of stray Lego bricks accidentally got into the teleport machine, then this is probably what would come out at the other end.
