Red Faction: Guerrilla PS3 Review

Console Obsession
29 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Can a game really fail to be fun if it involves blowing buildings up? Well, of course not, but it’s even better when said buildings fall to bits in a convincing manner: crumbling and giving way in the very manner that they would be expected to upon being purposely demolished. It’s not surprising that developer, Volition have gone down this destructible route, previous Red Faction games have shown a desire for the devastation of your surrounding environment, but, now that...

  • Summary: The EDF liberated Mars, but the victory went to their heads and they now operate with the same sense of authority as the Ultor Corporation they put out of commission. After a startling turn of events, protagonist Alec Mason takes arms in retaliation. His solution? Destroy all the EDF property in sight and shoot every EDF soldier standing in his way.

Red Faction: Guerrilla

  • Conclusion: Red Faction: Guerrilla is the complete package – bombastic action, oodles of variety, heavy firepower, destruction on an immense scale and an open sandbox world that places no restrictions on where you can go or how you approach your objectives. The story, characters and location may lack the depth and detail of say GTA IV’s, but then this is an altogether different animal.

Red Faction: Guerrilla Review

VideoGamer.com
13 October 2009
  • Excerpt: Red Faction Guerrilla is all about control, and more importantly how you gain control. It's one thing to liberate a sector on Mars using your machine gun and a few remote charges, but it's a completely different kettle of fish when you're inside a massive building-destroying robot that can tear through anything that stands in its way.

[DLC] Red Faction: Guerrilla - Demons of the Badlands

TotalPlayStation.com
24 September 2009
  • Conclusion: A golden opportunity to really expand on the back story of Mars pre- Guerrilla feels tragically wasted here. While there's definitely some fun (and destruction) to be had, it's not the kind one would (or should) pay ten bucks for -- if even five.

The Power of Destruction

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Concept: Obtain liberation through destruction. The different means to which players can destroy objects is one of this console generation's most impressive shows Graphics: Even if I was getting shot up, I had to stop in my tracks to admire a ?building ?collapsing Sound: Sounds are effectively used to enhance the carnage. The pounding will give any surround sound setup a workout Playability: The explosive gunplay is polished and precise.

HDR

  • Conclusion: Without question, my journey to Mars with Red Faction: Guerrilla was at the very least fun. However once you get past the thrill of blowing stuff up the game can feel a little hollow and I believe that's partly to blame on the setting. There simply isn't enough to see and do in this bleak and barren world other than build an urge to return to Earth.
  • Pros: Awesome destructible environments, Fluid controls, Fun, for the most part
  • Cons: Inconsistent to downright bad AI, Lacks variety

Review: Red Faction: Guerrilla (PS3)

Games Are Evil
10 July 2009
  • Excerpt: I remember playing the original Red Faction on PlayStation 2 way back in 2001. The greatest achievement was the Geo-Mod engine, allowing players to destroy environments. When I approached a door that I couldn’t get past, I simply blew up the frame surrounding the door and watched the physics take over. In Red Faction: Guerrilla, the Geo-Mod engine has reached 2.0 and it shows. 99.7% of the objects in the world of Mars are destructible.
  • Pros: Fully destructible environments, sandbox mission structure, compelling story
  • Cons: Useless friendly NPCs, lack of lock-on, not enough rockets

Red Faction: Guerrilla (PS3)

EL33TONLINE
29 June 2009
  • Excerpt: The last few weeks have seen the release of a veritable bounty of free-roaming, open-world games that have each brought their own unique hook or feature to a genre mostly dominated by the Grand Theft Auto series. In Red Faction: Guerrilla, we get a game that is no less of an open-world experience than that time-honoured franchise, only with the opportunity to make it ‘more open,’ imbued with the ability to destroy absolutely anything you can see down to rubble and debris...
