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.

After playing Red Faction Guerilla with all the available destruction and the GTA-like openness letting you wander about and determine what missions to tackle, I was a bit worried about this game. Underground? Unless you're going to let me dig into walls like the first RF game let me do, you're taking away two of the best things about RFG!

And I had a reason to worry: they did take away two of the best things from the previous game. Even worse they added something terrible: a bad, fixed over-the-shoulder camera. I swear when I first started playing I thought it was a bug or that I needed to switch to a different resolution. But, then I checked the Web and sure enough, it was intentional. Something about getting you in closer or whatever blah blah blah.

Now, the main show is still in place...you can destroy every non-rock structure. Buildings, crystals, etc can be blown to bits, hacked, or otherwise left behind as a pile of rubble. Destruction is such a ridiculously obvious missing part in most FPS games (except Battlefield Bad Company 2!!!) that I miss it when I end up playing any FPS that doesn't have it (I'm talking to you COD). When you knock down a tower that takes the enemies within it down with them, it's just solid gold. That and taking the few vehicles in this game (another downer) and plowing them through buildings...I don't know what it is but it's just beautiful. Under fire? Smash through that wall and flank them.

But there are a couple surprises. First the nanoforge has a new use: you can rebuild anything you destroyed...it's the weirdest thing (after all, why rebuild what you so happily destroyed?). But when you knock out those stairs you needed or that bridge you took out along with two enemies, you'll realize just how much you needed this thing.
