Summary: There is no question, this game cannot compare to any other on the market in my opinion. I heard that Skyrim is the best game of the year but, you cant blow up a building with propane in it now can you. This game is a destruction maniac's dream, you can race and bash cars, you can soot people in the head with several different weapons that you can upgrade, and you can level every building as far as the eye can see again and again.
Summary: Best ten bucks I ever spent! I love the fact that the game is VERY sandbox and lets you go anywhere and do just about anything. There is nothing like being able to complete a mission ANY way you want as long as it gets done. Stealing a truck, attaching a bomb to it, then driving it through a wall and setting off the bomb from a distance is just awesome. You could also sneak into the base instead for your demolition work -- but that's not as fun.

Summary: Who knew mining on Mars could be this much fun. This game rocks my scrap metal off! Some have complained this game is a bit repetative and i suppose i can agree on that, but i can't seem to get enough of it. Red Faction is all about blowing everything up and it does it in spades. Missions are the typical lot, blow that building up, ambush that convoy, steal that vehicle, intercept that traitor, but its fun gang.
Total Recall + Grand Theft Auto = Awesome Fun for under $20 bucks!

Summary: I've had Red Faction: Guerrilla (RFG) on my wish list for several months now. It looked different than most games I play, so I decided to experiment and give it a try. Before buying, there was the pesky matter of deciding whether to get the XBOX 360 or Windows version. I have a fairly high end pc (Win7 64bit, i7 920@ 3.5Ghz, GTX 295 video card), so I decided to enjoy all the eye candy I could with the game.
Summary: this game is like the first one on steroids, they really took the unique aspect of breaking through walls and buildings to the next level, making it a big part of the game, Its the most fun I've had in long time playing this game. The weapons are insane, a sledge hammer to start with and then you get all kinds of explosives to take down buildings faster, and the weapons are sick.
Summary: If you have a half way decent system (dual core or better) and at least a Geforce 8800GT video card (priced less than $100.00 these days) you should be able to run this game with no problems. You may get a little slowdown when there is A LOT of destruction going on the screen at once but that's about it. I bought 2 copies of this baby (one for me and one for my son) and I played it from beginning to end and enjoyed every minute of it.
Summary: It's not perfect, but this is the best game I've played in a long time. I'm sorry for the people who have had trouble with the stability of the software, because they are missing out. The synopsis: Mars, in the future (less lame than it sounds). Your one-time liberators are now the oppressors, and a group of freedom fighters must once again rise up and take a stand. I'll get my few complaints out of the way first.
Summary: For all Red Faction fans who played previous titles. All I got to say is get it, I gave it 10/10. Only one problem I had is that the story line was short, but it don't matter because they'll release a expansion pack soon, but as far as everything else this game is top 5 for me. It's not like previous titles, this one gives you control of everything within the game. You can smash buildings, drive all cars, climb over mountains, etc.
Conclusion: This game ticks all boxes, it's got a storyline to follow but you just swan off and blow up anything whenever you see fit. The graphics on it are immense (subject to right GPU)! Haven't had so much fun playing a game since GTA3 came out (when it was a breakthrough).
