Difficult, over-the-top racer full of twists and jumps.

What parents need to know

Ease of play

Mastering the controls takes time, but the game comes with a thorough set of tutorials that walk players through the nuances they will need to master. The game also starts in an "I'm just learning" mode that's designed to let you build your driving skills. By the end, though, the game is incredibly difficult.

Violence & scariness

The realistic physics in the game mean you'll crash -- a lot. But no damage is shown to the cars.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Jet Car Stunts is a stunt racing game where players drive through loopy courses and make gravity-defying jumps. The game blends the arcade and racing genres in a variety of tracks, but users can also purchase additional tracks from within the game for $2. Players will crash their cars frequently, but the damage is neither glamorized nor particularly detailed. And once you wreck, you simply start over again at the last checkpoint you crossed. The game uses the OpenFeint interactive network, which raises some privacy and safety concerns, but participation is optional.

QUALITY

Like some of the best arcade games of the 1980s, Jet Car Stunts is an over-the-top joyride, filled with ridiculously loopy tracks and jumps that no sane man would ever attempt in the real world. Then again, most real-world cars don't come with a jet pack strapped to the back. It's a game that might take a short while to master, but one that big-air/racing fans will find themselves playing again and again to rack up high scores. If you're having trouble in the early part of the game, though, do yourself a favor and walk away, as the game only gets harder, ultimately reaching a point where it seemingly wants to frustrate you.
