Synopsis

It has been more than 50 years since the Red Faction resistance and the Marauder allies liberated the Red Planet from the brutal Earth Defense Force — however, that harmony is once again threatened. A massive Terraformer that supplies Mars with its Earth-like air and water has been destroyed, causing the once-balanced atmosphere to transform to chaos. The Colonists have been forced to flee underground and begin their lives beneath the surface. Darius Mason, the grandson of Martian Revolution heroes Alec Mason and Samanya, runs a dangerous, yet lucrative business carrying out jobs that others fear to do. When Darius is tricked into entering an old Marauder temple, he reopens a mysterious shaft — releasing a long-sleeping evil that unleashes Armageddon across Mars. Only Darius and the Red Faction can protect the Colonist and Marauder settlements and save mankind from the evil that envelops the Red Planet.

Ignore the Red Faction title of this game as it has very little to do with the average FPS from a decade ago or the open-world destruct-a-thon from a couple years ago. Red Faction: Armageddon is a straight-up alien blasting good time with great weapons and great environment destruction, end of story.

Here's the rundown:

Pros:
+ Fast-paced alien shooting that might remind you of older games like Quake 2 or Half-Life but with a third-person perspective.

+ Unique and fun to use weapons like a magnet gun that flings objects together (including enemies) and a plasma gun that charges up and then destroys entire areas with swirling gravity.

+ Impressive destruction where every building is able to be destroyed. While not a core gameplay elements like the last game this still adds a ton of weight and spectacle to every firefight.

+ Pretty passable story with some funny lines and interesting locations. Design is generally solid with well-defined character outfits and unique locations.

+ Upgrade system that lets you improve abilities you like and buff up general stats like health and weapon recoil. You upgrade through finding "salvage" which is spread out in the larger environments. Though still linear the game does have a strong exploration elements due to this.

+ Online modes add some fun like a typical hoard mode where you stay alive through as many enemy waves as possible and a mode where you cause as much destruction as you can in a limited time. Leaderboard support for both.

+ Better PC port than previous Volition games in the last few years. Good framerate and smooth mouse control. Lots of video options (though sadly no option to increase pop-in distance).

Loved Red Faction Guerilla although it still left something to be desired on a game play level. The vehicles were clumsy, but driving around from mission to mission while tedious did give a sense of pleasure. Destroying sectors and bases was a lot of fun, and really the meat and potatoes of the game. Well with RF Armageddon it's a whole new can of worms. The game play is more linear and you just basically follow the instructions you are given to complete your objectives. Sounds boring right? Wrong. It's nice to have a sense of directions and while i loved the last game, along with games like Just Cause 2 and Assassins Creed 2, having all free roam territory isn't always the funnest way to play. No disrespect to those titles, but it's nice just to have an objective, go to it, complete it and move on, without running around all over the place. I rate this with Resident Evil 4,5, Dead Space 1, 2, and even Mass Effect, it's a great platformer. The thing that sets this game apart is the sheer brilliance of the psychics and the ability to destroy and repair nearly everything in the game. Speaking of the repair feature, after destroying platforms, crates, walls and everything else around you, you can use your repair tool(i forgot the name of it) to rebuild these things back to the original condition. Which comes in handy if you need to backtrack or hide from enemies that have destroyed your hiding places. Very clever. Also destroying platforms, or blocking a path to avoid being followed is brilliant as well. No other game out there can claim this unique feature.

Graphically, for PC that is, it depends on your specs. I have an Acer M5800, with an ATI Radeon 4850 1 gig of DDR3 RAM, 8 gigs of memory, and a Core 2 Quad Q9400 processor.

So the last Red Faction game featured a sandbox style of play, and while the open terrain was fun to travel through and the "cities" were fun to destroy, it became tedious to meet timed objectives when you had to drive for 10 minutes...

Red Faction Armageddon solved this by making it into a linear experience. The first action in-game was astounding. The new destructive engine was tangible. Using the magnet gun to tear the building out from under enemies was a blast, which leads to the two major flaws, in my opinion:

1: 80% of the game (which is really only about 5 or 6 hours) is spent killing aliens. There were more than three kinds, but they basically fell into only three types: crawlers, jumpers, and "tanks". The enemy types got stale once you learned the best tactic - it became a methodical process of eliminating priorities...

2: Weapon - You could only equip four weapons, which is plenty, but I seriously don't think there are four USEFUL weapons. The Sledgehammer is fun to tear things down with, but never a viable combat choice. I found myself using the assault rifle, magnet gun, and either the rocket launcher or grenade launcher through most of the game.

Overall, it was a fun gun & run, but wait for the price to drop, or something. I know through Steam it's still pretty pricey...

My impressions about the campaign:

The game is pure fun, with some epic battles, a very fluid gameplay, cutscenes always very well placed connecting the action to the story and giving a perfect feeling of progress, it is so addictive that at no time the player finds him/herself wishing for it to end, but rather the contrary, when you feel that the end is near the desire is to postpone it to the maximum. Quoting a line from the game itself, "not a dull moment".

A wide variety of weapons, with one of the best assault and sniper rifles I've ever seen (the former delivers shots of great impact and realistic sounds when the clip is about to empty -- prompting the player to reload it even in the heat of the most frantic battle), and the latter with the amazing "heat signature" feature, detecting the body heat and very useful to trace back the attacks when you don't know where they are coming from.

It even has one of the best, if not THE best weapon I've ever seen, called "Singularity Cannon".

And of course, it's Red Faction, so you can also take advantage of the whole destructible scenario around you (well, almost) to aid you in your battles, and there are endless possibilities: the reward for using your imagination is second to none.

The checkpoint system timing is amazing: perfectly placed, never penalizes nor frustrates the player (still, you can manually save your game), and the achievements progress is shown in the screen: they do no pop up out of the blue when you reach them, which is an incentive for the player to pursue them. If you like achievements like myself, believe me, this system adds A LOT to the fun.

The controls are very smooth, the story is good enough to keep your interest from start to finish.
