Vigilante is a superb remake of IREM's 1988 arcade beat 'em up of the same name, in the same vein as Double Dragon, that does what all remakes should: enhance the gameplay while maintaining the same 'feel' and atmosphere. The game boasts graphics slightly improved over the arcade classic, with five huge levels that arcade fans will be happy to revisit. The enhancements come in the form of gameplay polish. Designer Yves Rizoud also added new elements, including five weapons (the original game has one), excellent stereo sound effects, and the ability to record and play back demos (even over the whole game). Overall, if you spent countless quarters on the original, this remake is a must-have. If you have never played the original but love beat 'em ups, this is also a must-have. Two thumbs up!
