Summary: Finally I finished the game. I did it! I loved the fact that it's on Mars, but it's s GTA-ish and the planet only looked cool in the very beginning, and then I felt like it was desert on Earth for the most part. It was boring. As much as I looked forward for the game, it is so incredibly repetitive.
Summary: Real physics. Collapsing buildings. Punchy weapons and a hydraulic sledgehammer. What's not to like? How about generic writing, endlessly escalating battles that send you fleeing back to base after EVERY side mission left the infinitely spawning enemies overwhelm you and graphics that look as if...
Summary: While the game is a great classic, Microsoft requires an internet connection to play the game. During Sandy I had power but no internet and I could not play the game. Also even after my internet was restored Microsoft wouldn't let me sign-in. Most other companies allow you to play the game offline.
Summary: Dealing with games for Windows LIVE is a lot lot paying someone to punch you in the face. You are unable to save without a profile and upon relenting and signing up, I was promptly told that the profile I just created was not compatible with the game I just downloaded.
Summary: About halfway through the first chapter (there are probably a dozen missions in each chapter), I was actually bored. It was just the same old thing, over and over again. Only, the enemies became much more numerous and got a whole lot harder to kill.
Summary: I absolutely loved Red Factions I and II, so imagine my great disappointment to discover that Red Faction Guerrilla is NOT a First Person Shooter (FPS) at all! This to me is a HUGE disappointment.
Summary: There was no indication on the box or any reviews that this game requires an internet connection for activation, even for single-player. All THQ had to say was sorry for the confusion. When you die, you go back to a predetermined point, not where you saved at.
