Summary: I bought this game because I loved Red Faction Guerrilla, and I was very disappointed. The story line seemed similar, which is just mediocre, but I was highly disappointed when I found out that the game did not have a multiplayer at all. That was the best part of the previous game. I have only played the game one time.
Summary: I first and foremost purchased this game because Red Faction Guerrilla was one of my absolute favorite games I have ever played. With its free roam world and destruction mechanics you could play it over and over again and it was still fun. First lets go over the good, the destruction mechanics are awesome and all of the weapons are new and when used right will make a big bang. Also the ability to repair stuff you already destroyed is an awesome feature.
Summary: I found Red Faction Armageddon very disappointing. Red Faction Guerrilla was one of my favorite games of the last few years, so I was really looking forward to Armageddon. Instead of a continuation or sequel to Guerrilla; Armageddon jumped to a different environment by taking the storyline underground and turning it into a 'bug' hunt. The storyline was repetitive and frankly boring. I can not recommend this game.
Summary: I'll start this review by looking back a couple of years to the previous Red Faction game, Red Faction: Guerilla. This game was brilliant, and the most fun I'd had on Xbox 360 in a while. I loved the huge map and the massive destructable enverionments. It was pretty much Saint's Row... only set on Mars and better. So now we have Red Faction: Armageddon. Where, for most of the game, you run around in caves and can blow up stair cases and the odd, small building... yay!
Conclusion: I cant believe they're still making this one. Its like flogging a dead horse. I never liked the first one and bar the graphics there doesn't seem to have been much improvement in any follow ups. Both the storyline and game play just seems to be dull and totally lacking in excitement.
Summary: This review is based purely on the single player campaign. To start off I was a big fan of Red Faction Guerilla so I was looking forward to more of the free roaming, building bashing, driving off cliffs and generally causing havoc. Unfortunately the free roaming element has gone, RFA is a fairly linear game that directs you on a set course with not much chance of exploring or backtracking.
