I got hooked on Vigilante 8 while in college. We used to play this game over and over at a friend's apartment. I think the best thing about this game is the two-player mode. You can go one-on-one against someone in versus or team up and pick your scene and your challengers. The one person mode also has a quest. There's a wide range of vehicles to choose from and each vehicle has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. If you select this option, you can unlock five other chracters and two different scenes. Once you beat a level, a short clip is shown. Some of them tie together and some of them don't and some of them are just fun to watch. When you're a part of the Vigilantes (the good guys) the missions are a little harder. However, when you're a Coyote (the bad guys) the missions are much easier because instead of protecting property, your bent on destroying it. Overall, Vigilante 8 is a really fun game to play, especially with a friend.
