Summary: This is an alright game, but it doesn't stand up to Red Faction Guerilla in any way shape or form. I played through the story mode, but wouldn't do it again though. The game is just too boring. You only have one path to go down, one that you can't deviate from. The online multiplayer could've been pretty good, but they decided to release it as only co-op. That's not bad if you like that sort of thing, but I like the competition vs. human players.
Summary: The disappointing parts of the game are the audio (sound effects and soundtrack were poorly produced) and the lack of multiplayer game types. The story lacks a solid foundation but otherwise an enjoyable game to play.
Summary: I hate when developers of a successful series makes drastic changes to their game. That's the case with this one. It's no longer a free-roaming sandbox type of game. With this game, they now lead you around like a dog on a leash. That's my biggest complaint. It completely changes the feel and sub-genre of the previous one. You go where they tell you to go, no deviations. If you wander too far off the mandatory path, you see a 10-second counter.
Summary: I miss the good old times id sit in my room and run around on mars playing red faction Guerrilla. Then i get Armeggedon and i was like What. Hey the graphics are good but Its A Level By Level game heck i beat it 3 times in 1 and a half days cmon what kind of job is that. I give Armegeddon a Cheerful 5.5 For disappointing me.
Summary: Red Faction: Armageddon. First let's talk about what's not to like: the story is paper-thin, there are no real plot twists, it's about as linear as a game can be, and only seems to exist to fill the gaps between stopping about laying waste to and abundance of enemies, be they human or otherwise, and while the voicing is bearable the dialogue isn't, and SAM, your faithful Situational Awareness Module has more personality then any other sentient life.
Summary: Red Faction Armageddon is somewhat confusing to start with, and has a few problems. Biggest problem is game saving; a tough part is coming so gather all the supplies you can and upgrade as much as possible then save. It will tell you it saves, but loading your save you find you have to do it all again; it only saves such things at an autosave.

Summary: When I saw that another Red Faction game was coming out, I was very excited since I loved the last one on the 360, with its open world where you could take things at your own pace, do challenges when you wanted to, and other sandbox elements. Don't get me wrong, the game is quite fun while it lasts, and the magnet gun is by far one of the nicest weapons in a game.
