Excerpt: I really mean it this time… I will not fall into the same trap again. Unlike the last Red Faction outing almost exactly two years ago , I’m not going to let a single “get your ass…” (well, you know) joke creep its way into this review.
Excerpt: This new Red Faction turns the page a bit. The many weapons and infinite ways to destroy things have remained, but the revolution was exchanged for an alien invasion. Don’t expect a direct sequel as the story has little to do with Red Faction: Guerilla. Not that we’re sad about that.
Summary: Despite having a bit of a lack of identity, Red Faction: Armageddon is a high-quality game. It presents varied game play elements throughout its eight-hour long campaign, all of which happen to be quite fun and engaging.
Summary: Shadow Warrior brings fun oldschool FPS gameplay to Xbox One with a unique combination of guns, sword, and magic along with gorgeous visuals, a nice sense of humor, and tons of gore. This is pure oldschool gaming mayhem with a current-gen coat of paint, and we had a great time with it.
Pros: Great visuals; fun oldschool gameplay; the sword rocks; tons of content
Summary: Linearity gets a bad rap in gaming. By tightly controlling a player’s path through a game, developers can take players on thrilling, well-paced rides. Unfortunately, Volition fails to do this with Red Faction: Armageddon.
Excerpt: Volition’s Red Faction series is known for one thing – the GeoMod technology that allows destruction of the playing environment. However, the series has undergone a radical change. The first two instalments were first-person shooters.
Summary: A good showing but so much less than RF: Guerrilla was and some of the production decisions are questionable (taking away exploration, most collection, removing destruction challenges from main game). Decent gameplay but not broken up and gets repetitive as its just run and gun.
Summary: " Red Faction: Armageddon " is a little bit of a disappointment. As shooters go, the explosive action is as cool as ever, but I miss the open world feel of Guerrilla. The physics are better than ever, so they feel wasted on areas where you can barely destroy anything of importance.
Conclusion: Red Faction: Armageddon is a great follow-up to Guerrilla, and while it's not quite as large or as ambitious as its predecessor, it's still a fun, riotous and entertaining game that's well worth playing.
Conclusion: Though Red Faction: Armageddon isn’t the most creative game on the market, it’s one of the most entertaining action games to hit it in a while. Fans of previous virtual mining expeditions (scratch that; uprisings) on the red planet will feel at home with the game’s easy to grasp control scheme and...
