What Gamespot Users have to say about Vigilante 8

  • Review Score:9.2

    Just stop playing Twisted Metal for a while, and try this instead.

    Vigilante 8 is probally the best car-combat game for it's time. Very alike to the game Twisted Metal, which is pretty much the same. Twisted Metal was, and still is ambitious. And, Vigilante 8 sure as hell is aswell. ... Read Full Review

    Not another game out there like it...

    At first glance, the whole game seems kind of silly (so does the company, "Luxoflux"?!? LOL) since you're in a car, you drive around, you pick up weapons, and destroy other cars before they destroy you. Well, to me, it'... Read Full Review

    An amazing guilty pleasure of mine! I love it.

    This game is underappreciated because of the console it is on. Many people don't realize how good N64 games are, especially this one. I love it, it has cars, action, and guns! I got this in 2002, and I just starting real... Read Full Review

    Great memories

    I never bought this game for the N64, but I rented it a billion times. I don't know why I'm writing this review now but w/e. The game is unique with really interesting characters and nice levels too. All characters have ... Read Full Review

    Great music, great fun, great game

    Ok, just to get this straight, this game is NOT about killer rednecks. It's about 2 killer rednecks, lots of disco lovers, and aliens in vehicles killing each other. Apparently 2 gangs have been fighting over alien tec... Read Full Review

    If you still have an Nintnedo 64 and are looking for some fun car combat, then this is your game.

    Vigilante 8 was probably the only major car combat series on the Nintendo 64. This game isn't perfect but it's definitely a game for car combat fans. Gameplay,7. The game plays like any other kind of car combat game. ... Read Full Review

    Vigilante 8 > Twisted Metal

    Introduction First off, no I'm not a fan-boy. I've played both games and think Vigilante 8 completely owns Twisted Metal in competition. Why? Vigilante 8 has more to offer. You start off by creating a profile, basically... Read Full Review

    The best vehicular combat, on any platform, to date.

    In 1999 Nintendo 64 owners got something no other has out done since, the most complete and intense auto combat game ever made. Vigilante 8 has a simple premise, choose your vehicle, and blast the junk out of everyone e... Read Full Review

    A good car shooter, but it won't entertain you for long.

    Gameplay: In Vigilante 8, you choose a character and face up against other characters, but don't expect actual fighting, instead, you drive around, shooting at your enemies' cars. The game is fun, once you get used to t... Read Full Review
