Red Faction: Battlegrounds Review

G4
29 April 2011
  • Summary: Red Faction goes retro with this top down racer/shooter. Heavily bent on multiplayer, the game features a tutorial-style single-player game, and several different game modes for four-way multiplayer.
  • Pros: Looks good, Some fun game modes, Online and offline multiplayer support
  • Cons: Exceedingly shallow gameplay, Overpriced, Multiplayer is convoluted and short-lived

Red Faction: Battlegrounds Review

GamerNode
19 April 2011
  • Excerpt: THQ has released Red Faction: Battlegrounds as a tie-in game for the upcoming Red Faction: Armageddon . This top-down, dual-stick shooter features vehicular combat, plenty of explosions, and online multiplayer. All of that sounds great for a downloadable title, but ultimately the game fails to execute on quite a few levels.
  • Pros: Easy to pick up and play, Lots of multiplayer options
  • Cons: Significant lack of content, Gameplay goes from fun to tedious in a matter of minutes, Movement feels clunky at times

Red Faction: Battlegrounds (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
17 April 2011
  • Excerpt: Red Faction: Battlegrounds is a top-down arena combat game with very few noticeable links to the Red Faction franchise. It’s set on Mars, and some of the vehicles are somewhat familiar, but here the similarities end. Of course, distance from a set formula isn’t enough to make a game bad, and indeed, Battlegrounds isn’t awful. It is, however, rather mediocre, and it gets dull very quickly.

  • Excerpt: This downloadable demolition derby is a pretty by-the-books affair, but it's still an explosively enjoyable distraction for Red Faction fans.

Red Faction: Battlegrounds Review

GameSpot
12 April 2011
  • Excerpt: Red Faction: Battlegrounds is in an enviable position. As a downloadable spin-off to a well-established franchise, it has the freedom to take a unique slant on the dominant themes of its forebears, without the financial pressures and public expectations that saddle retail products. And developer THQ Digital Warrington certainly doesn't shy away from this task.
  • Pros: Time trial challenges are fun
  • Cons: Short single-player campaign can be beaten in less than an hour, Shooting portions are incredibly repetitive, Not enough depth or variety to make competitive play worthwhile

Red Faction Battlegrounds

GameTrailers
11 April 2011
  • Excerpt: Though it's technically a spinoff of the series, Red Faction: Battlegrounds' connection to the larger franchise is tenuous. This multiplayer-centric vehicle shooter is played from an isometric perspective, and it includes the usual suspects when it comes to modes, from capture-the-flag and deathmatch, to king of the hill and team deathmatch.

  • Excerpt: was a return to form. When I say “form,” I’m talking about general quality, as the free-roaming game was a far cry from the linear FPS that was the original title.

Red Faction: Battlegrounds - Recensione

Everyeye Network
4 October 2011
  • Summary: Red Faction Battlegrounds è un titolo che, sebbene le ottime premesse, fallisce nell'inserire le dinamiche di gioco proposte nell'atto pratico. Questo shooter arcade offre buone idee in un comparto single player relegato a solo mezzo d'introduzione, ma che risultano totalmente incontrollate nel comparto multigiocatore.
