Race into high-octane, car-based combat action with Vigilante 8. A global oil crisis occurs, and the United States is on the verge of an economic breakdown. A rampant crime wave in the cities prompts the deployment of more security forces, leaving the hinterlands with little or no law and order. In a bizarre, alternate version of the 1970's you play as either one of the good Vigilantes or the evil Renegade Coyotes. Combat over a number of stages located all over the western United States, whether in Story or Arcade Mode. Drive across varied destructible environments and blast your enemies into oblivion.
