Summary: Having played the first Red Faction, this was disappointing. This game is Red Faction in name only. First, the plot. It's completely goofy and too light-hearted, unlikely the gritty and dark story of the first. In the first game, you were an ordinary miner who probably had no combat experience. Here, you are a super soldier. The plot twist you'll see in this game was just pointless. But that's the least of our problems. Here's comes my biggest gripe: lack of Geo-Mod.
Summary: I can't complain too loudly since I got this game on sale from Steam. It provided me with a few hours of so-so FPS fun. I finally chucked the game in frustration since I had to replay the same level one too many times. That is, after finishing a level and exiting the game, this silly game takes me back to this same completed level the next time I open the game. The save progress is non-existent. Didn't the programmers test their work?
Summary: Pros: - Fast paced, excellent arcade shooter with large variety of standard and more interesting weapons. - Destructible environments - Fun and intense game play - Cheats for a more over the top experience - You get to use a Mech - Offline Bot matches - Jason Statham is a voice actor in this Negatives - Too short, easily completed within 3-4 hours - Very linear - No ported co-op, even in offline local - Not much of a story Personal Preferences - It has a Helicopter and...
Summary: A solid action shooter but really does not stand out from similar games of the era. Was relatively popular due to the success of the original but really did not stick to its roots and a was a blatant cash in from publishers. No real link between this and the first, borrowing name only and you won't miss a great deal if you do not play this. Still provides some easy fast paced action.
Summary: I have both the PS2 and GameCube versions and there is also an X-Box version. From what I have seen, all versions are essentially the same. It's the year 2167, you are Alias, a demolitions expert, one of the six remaining members of a force of 2000 Commonwealth soldiers who underwent nano-enhancement. You are trying to overthrow your former leader, Chancellor Sopot, who came to see you and your fellows as a threat to his empire. Gameplay is linear.
Summary: This game should not exist even logically. But logic aside, there's just nothing new, they just enhanced destruction physics a bit (and there's not much different) and added Jason Statehem (is that right?). Rushed story with not really polished gameplay equals - unworthy of it's first game sequel that must be avoided by any FPS or Sci-fi fans. Seriously, i passed through it, like after 4 hours, A.I.
Summary: Red Faction 1 is better than Red Faction 2 in red faction two the single player game mode is not as good as the first red faction but the graphics are a bit better the controls are the same and the environmental destruction feature when you shoot rocket launcher at the environment in the game the rocks explode and leave a big hole it a little bit better i think and the weapons are pretty much the same to you get a few new weapons like the grenade launcher that is cool...
Summary: One of the most under appreciated ps2 era games. Red faction 2 may not appeal to all fps fans. However RF2 is one of those games were IMO the developers went above and beyond to bring a game that would give players what they want, more of everything I.E more guns,maps, and features. With that being said the one thing the first Red Faction still does better is story line. RF2 really shines in its multiplayer.
