Vigilante 8; October Game of the Month

Aw. Castlevania was so close to winning this month...

...but how could I be upset when it loses to Vigilante 8? I love how you got different missions depending on which character you played as and which side they were on (Vigilantes, Coyotes or neutral/Drifter). Every character is interesting with my favorite being Boogie ("WHOO! Let's move to the groove!"). However, I play my best when using Slick Clyde. That's good seeing as I prefer the Vigilante missions anyway. :)

It's not all about completing missions, though. There's still a mode for those who want to just go into a level and destroy cars with an armed disco ball. :lol: One thing I noticed when I first bought this game was that it controlled a lot better than Twisted Metal 2. Hey I love me some Twisted Metal, but even this biggest (playable) vehicles were so slippery it might as well have been called "Twisted Metal On Ice". In V8, I can actually stop turning when I want to.

Overall, Vigilante 8 remains one of my favorite games in my collection. I hear that V8: Second Offense is even better, but I still think the original holds up. I highly recommend it to anyone that has the faintest interest in car combat games. Oh and I suggest buying the N64 version since it comes with an exclusive unlockable arena. ;)
