Summary: I consider Red Faction a classic 3D FPS during what I call the golden age of FPS's. Games like Deus Ex, Half Life, Timesplitters, Unreal Tournament, and Quake 3 Arena were the games that my generationn grew up on and played incessantly. At its core, Red Faction is a rather straight forward fps. The story is a classic one man vs the world narrative set in the future on Mars.
great game, good graphics for its age, also a first of its kind!

Summary: The first Geo-Mod to come to the Action/Adventure genre, It isnt really a big influence, but it is definitely fun to create your own tunnel through a cave, or stopping a tank in its place, but otherwise its just a good perk. Otherwise a great shooter. a lot like half life.
Summary: I liked that the game is continuous and keeps fallowing the its path. The game is different because the surrounding environment changes from one thing to another so quickly. overall I thought the game was a deal.
Summary: It is a fun game. It is not for young children. There is some puzzle solving and "taking care" of characters as they get in your way. There is some adventure play too. My fourteen year old son enjoys it but my seven year old gets easily bored by it.
Summary: Now THIS is more like it. PS2 games of late have been plagued by the curse of brevity. After a string of INCREDIBLY short games, such as Onimusha, ZOE, Crazy Taxi, and Starfigher, PS2 owners finally have a reason to use their memory cards. Red Faction goes a long way towards remedying the "beaten in one sitting" trend with a long storyline full of twists, turns, and a huge variety of environments to explore.
Summary: n Red Faction, players find themselves in the middle of a rebellion on the hostile surface of Mars fighting for their freedom against the evil Ultor Corporation. Featuring a sophisticated physics engine, five fully controllable vehicles, a variety of unique natural environments, and Volition's proprietary Geo-Mod Technology, Red Faction is one of the most advanced second-generation titles ever released for the PlayStation 2.
