Today, we go back to the vault to revisit a pair of Co-Op Classics. This time, we take a look at them in video form. Vendetta and Fire Truck are about as different as you can get. The former pretty much screams early 1990s, from the side scrolling brawling to the over-the-top violence and what we'd now call "sensual elements". Black and white era Fire Truck, on the other hand, is squeaky clean, and hasn't aged nearly as well, though it occupies an important place in the history of cooperative gaming.
Vendetta is a guilty pleasure of mine. It has it all: blatant ripoffs of 80s tough guys as player characters, a huge array of wicked weaponry, a "chick" to rescue from gang of brutes, bosses wielding buzzsaws and giant anchors, attack dogs, innocent strippers, and leather clad "ladies of ill repute" armed with whips. Not politically correct at all, but still a fantastic game to enjoy with a friend or three.
