Activision's classic car combat title gets remade for XBLA. First information and screenshot.
Until I saw this article I had COMPLETELY FORGOT all about Vigilante 8........what a great franchise, and a worthy series next to the Twisted Metal Type Genre.........COME ON GIVE US A NEXT GEN VIGILANTE 8!!!!.. ... ... ......"The JOEY has Spoken"
I loved Vigilante 8. The second one wasn't as good though. The first one took everything good about Twisted Metal and made it better.

V8 is cool. a perfect edition for XBA.... and since its not likely MS will get Twisted Metal. this is just as good and better than Full Auto.
I love playing Vigilante 8: Second Offence on the N64, such cool and unique characters. I never really liked twisted metal, but Vigilante 8 was always my favorite.
this game any good?
Very good. As long as the multiplayer has all the basics, I'm buying.
I'm definitely buying this. Vigilante 8 > Twisted Metal Too bad there won't be a next-gen Vigilante 8 game. Oh well, I'm looking forward to Twisted Metal on the PS3.
It's funny, while I enjoyed this game, I put it down to play Twisted Metal 2 constantly back in the day.... if online coop is there, im there.
IMO this game was the best of the genre.
so much fun back in the day. I hired it on ps1 4 weeks ago:P haha good times.
i loved this game, to bad its only xbox 360 so i wont be able to get it :(
I absolutly love vigilante 8 and second offence you could insert the vigilante 1 game disk at the location select screen on second offence and have 16 level's i think to drive around in id gladly take this over twisted metal, Destruction is key, the level of destuction was amazing, and the first game i ever seen that had enviroment deformation, when ever you doped a special Mortar i had the games on my ps1 but i sold my ps1 with 19 games(in those game i had twisted metal 2,3,4) to buy my PS2 and Twisted Metal Black the ending movies were really enjoyable, my favorite car was a a floating nissan 350Z, the trash truck and the lunar rover
It was only a few weeks ago i was playing this awesome game on my trusty old Dreamcast! (mmmmm... the good old days) lol
