The player also starts the game with a dog, and has the choice of floppy or pointed ears. Later in the game, the player may receive a cat from Romana. Also seen in the wilderness are a raccoon, a lizard, and a turtle, as well as a chihuahua that appears to be a pet at the dig site. You can be given this chihuahua later in the game by Carter.
Also notable is the Mukumuku, who resembles an abominable snowman. Mukumuku can only be seen during Winter near the tree in which the Harvest Sprites live, and the surrounding area commonly referred to as “the forest.”
Many firearms from the previous return, such as the Thompson submachine gun and Colt 1911, as well as a pump-action shotgun (though it was changed from a Winchester Model 12 to a Remington 870). New WWII-era weapons like the MP 40, the M3 submachine gun, the MG 42 and the Beretta Model 38 also appear in the game.
Interacting with objects in the environment involves two action buttons- a standard action and a “violent” action (for example, when stealing a car, the player may choose to either pick its lock or break the window glass), used in context-sensitive situations. A map is included as in the original Mafia game. The checkpoint system has been completely overhauled. New controls include a cover system that allows the player to hide behind objects (such as generators, walls and large crates) to shoot enemies, rather than just using a crouch while behind an object.
It has been stated by 2K Czech that the game’s cutscenes are created by the game engine, in real-time, rather than pre-rendered cutscenes. For example if the player is riding in a car and a cut scene starts, the player will be driving the same car and if the car is damaged, that will appear in the cut scene.

There are several key gameplay Mechanics unique to Big Bang Beat
P-Gauge: The P-Gauge is placed directly under the Health Bar, and monitors usage of special moves. Whenever a special move (or, in versions after 1.01, the strong attack) is used, this meter depletes. If a move would consume an amount of power that is greater than what is available, it cannot be performed. This meter automatically fills, or can be filled faster by using the game’s “Charge” feature, which leaves the player vulnerable to attack. As the player loses health, the P-Gauge can “fill in” the empty parts of the Health Bar, thus allowing the player to use more specials if his/her life is low.
Attack Power Correction Value: Represented by a number near the center of the screen. When the P-Gauge is full, by holding the “Charge” button and rapidly pushing the directional buttons, the player can sacrifice health for increased damage from all of his/her character’s attacks. The maximum value places attacks at 199% power and leaves the character with 1 health point.
B-Power Gauge: The game’s “Super Bar.” This bar is filled either by attacking the opponent or by picking up stones dropped by attacked opponents, known as “B Stones.” When the number on the bar (called the “B-Power Stock”) is 100 or higher, the player can execute one of several techniques that depend on this gauge:
- B Power Arts: The term for this game’s “Super Moves.” All B Power Arts cost 1 stock.
- B Dash: An advanced version of the character’s Dash. It is much faster, and has the ability to cancel any move type, allowing for more combo opportunities. Costs 1 stock.
- B Counter: Activated by pushing the “B” button while blocking an opponent’s attack. Allows the user to ignore block stun, and follow up with a counterattack. Costs 1 stock
- B Escape: Allows the player to escape being attacked. This drains a significant amount of power compared to the other movements above. Costs 4 stocks.
- Air Dash (1.01 only): In the first release, air dashing removed a small amount of B-Power. Every version thereafter borrows from the P-Gauge instead.
- Big Bang Break (1.02 on): A powerful move that can only be performed in character unique situations, usually by canceling a specific B Power Art with a special command. Costs two stocks.
An interesting note in this Gauge’s history is that the first release had 9 levels of power, while every version after this only featured 5.
Enhance: Basically the equivalent of a taunt. Any character can use an enhance three times per fight at maximum, except for Heita who can use it six times. The effects of the enhance vary wildly from character to character, and can be as minuscule as damage tweaks to a single move (Ren) or transformation into a new character (Heita).
The story of Vigilante 8: 2nd Offense centers on the international meddlings of an oil conglomerate from the future known as OMAR (Oil Monopoly Alliance Regime).
After finding an electronic armband in a service station bathroom, former Vigilante Slick Clyde rose to be controlled by OMAR. Working up through the ranks of command he soon came to be the CEO of OMAR itself and made a complete monopoly on all oil trades with the sole exception of the United States.
With the help of his student and hitman, Obake, he steals the technology to allow him to travel through time. Taking with him Obake and his cybernetic assassin, Dallas 13, he makes the jump back to 1970s to cripple the United States and bring OMAR to total domination.
Appearing in 1970s, the three vehicles encounter Convoy, the former leader of the Vigilantes. Upon seeing him, the three cars open fire.
