The graphics, while good on a technical level, aren't very inspired. I feel like they wasted the Martian setting. It looks like Arizona with futuristic cars. They could've had more outlandish landscapes.
Other than the somewhat mediocre presentation (mediocre in terms of art direction, not technical design), I love the game. The protagonist is a likeable guy, and the story missions so far have provided nice variety. The destruction is not just a gimmick. It's extremely satisfying and never gets old. While the missions usually focus on destroying a structure, there are just so many way to do it. Also, other than the limits placed by the environment, there really is no set path anywhere. One mission asked me to track a marauder through some buildings. Instead following the winding rooms and hallways, I just smashed a straight path through with the hammer.
Overall I think it's an excellent purchase for the price, and hopefully the sound issues get patched up for those of you who want to enjoy it in 5.1.
The synopsis: Mars, in the future (less lame than it sounds). Your one-time liberators are now the oppressors, and a group of freedom fighters must once again rise up and take a stand.
I'll get my few complaints out of the way first. The story is a little corny, and some of the missions are repetitive. And like many games (especially those with console siblings), there's no quicksave. You're also forced to use Windows Live.
But the good...
- You can really, truly destroy almost anything of importance and it looks and feels real. By the time you are halfway through, you realize how natural it is and how much it could improve other games. I hope to see more use of the technology. Destruction is woven nicely into the storyline.
- It's long and you don't have to play it all in order. This isn't a game you finish in an evening or even in a day (unless I really missed something). Most missions are optional; you can swap between the main "quest" line and alternate missions.
- Strikes a great balance between a FPS (though it's actually 3rd person) and a mild role playing game like Fallout and a driving game like GTA. You can customize your weapons a bit, but it's never tedious. You can do missions to increase your wealth and buy more weapons. You can steal or borrow any car you want.
- Vehicles, especially the ones you can use in combat (which is most of them). Tanks, robots, garbage trucks, you name it.
- Backpacks! The single player only allows one backpack (the jetpack), but multiplayer has a couple more to choose from.Read more ›
Like any revolution, RED FACTION (III): GUERRILLA, strives to overcome but falls victim to harsh realities - and some bad decisions. But there are also a lot of sparks coming out from under this hammer.
First off, this game tries to be too many things at the same time. It has missions and you get to augment your weapons - but it is clearly not a cRPG. And you get to explore and shoot - but, even if you will find yourself in some hairy situations, the moments of adrenaline rush and intensity are rare. Early on the weapons get too powerful and the importance of explosions overtake the gameplay. Do not get me wrong, I love the smell of a singularity bomb in the morning as much as the next guy - but you CAN have too many explosions.
Oh, and how come one can blow up building and vehicles sky high but the surrounding rocks remain intact? And while I am poking plot holes: where is all the oxygen coming from since Mars seem as barren as a red desert?
Now, unless the hero were to wear armor we would love to see, why was there a need to go from an FPS to a Third-Person Shooter perspective? There have been TPS games that work great (the excellent MAX PAYNE series spring to mind) but more often than not, the over the shoulder camera ruins the immersion - not to mention your aim.Read more ›
