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

    Rated on May 06, 2007 by BraindeadRacr

    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...

    Not another game out there like it...

    Rated on April 24, 2008 by 8bit7055

    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 yo...

    An amazing guilty pleasure of mine! I love it.

    Rated on July 30, 2006 by imasmartguy

    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 ...

    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. ...

    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 fig...

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

    Rated on April 29, 2010 by Demonjoe93

    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 ...

    Vigilante 8 > Twisted Metal

    Rated on September 09, 2007 by Fossil

    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 ...

    The unofficial king of vehicular combat games for the N64, and possibly, of the 5th generation.

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

    Rated on December 12, 2005 by xsyssoft2004

    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 ju...

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

    Rated on August 18, 2011 by CHOVI3

    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, on...
