Jackass: The Game
puts you in the role of the show's director as you produce seven episodes of what is supposed to be the show's fourth season. Each episode of the show consists of five mini-games which are based on stunts from the show. The stunts remain true to what you would expect to see on the show. In addition to the always popular shopping cart races, you also have a stunt involving "Party Boy" or diving into elephant dung. A number of other games are stunts that you know the Jackass
crew would love to do, such as a round of golf with hand grenades or a tumble down a cliff, but are something that are only possible in a videogame.
At its heart, Jackass is a collection of mini-games, which means it comes with the problems typical of the genre. There are games that you will fall in love with while there are others that you'll try to avoid if possible. One of the real positives about this collection is that there's a healthy amount of games available. At the same time, the idea behind the game is almost always more enjoyable than the actual gameplay. Personally I wasn't impressed by many of the stunts for the same reason I lost interest in the show - once you've seen someone do something crazy a couple of times it loses its appeal. Without better gameplay to back up each stunt, it isn't fun.
Once you complete the season, which doesn't take that long unless you're going for 100% completion, you can take on the Challenge and Multiplayer modes. Challenge mode features harder versions of the stunts found in the main game. By completing these stunts, you earn cash which unlocks items like new props and clips from the show. Multiplayer is a bit of letdown and feels a slapped on, taking away some of the appeal of mini-game collections. All of the stunts are just multiplayer versions of the stunts from the season that never gel.
