This is more like kill zone 2 than red faction very boring, graphics arent that great and the story is weak! if you like red faction WAIT until the price drops because it is not worth the 37pounds

  not bad but not good

| | See all Handz19's reviews (1)

i must say that there are some parts in this game that are really good but after gurilla i was expecting more of the same, where this lets you down. the singleplayer takes 50 hours tops to fully complete it especally with the new game+ that has been put in which makes isane difficulty borderline rubbish. the storyline is well done however even with bits where you knew that it was going to happen which can ruin it, the vehicle combat is a good part but can get suprisingly annoying especally on the harder difficulties. when on the multiplayer i felt more like i was playing AVP rather than red faction due to the infestation mode that is uterally pointless. so if you enjoyed playing red faction gurilla id say rent this game rather than buy it because its not worth buying

  Enjoyable

This game has been given a lot of mixed reviews, and understandably there are some who feel that it does not live up to "Guerilla", however i feel that it needs to be said that this franchise didnt start off as a sand box game either, it was the Geo mod engine that made it so popular. "Guerilla" brought a nice twist to the game, making it sandbox, and adding the 3rd person perspective. "Armageddon" has stepped away from the sandbox type game and gone back to its roots in my opinion, and i think it works well. The graphics are up to standard and what you would expect, with some nice lighting effects, and there is certainly plenty to do and shoot at. The story is solid, and drives you well with some fairly decent voice acting, and nice FMV sequences. I think that the Nano Forge is a nice touch too, allowing you to rebuild damaged walkways, and equipment, some of which is needed to progress in the game. Although not long, I still feel that this is a good game, keeping up a lot of the original factors that made the the red faction franchise so popular, and although it does not have the replayability of "Guerilla", its still a good and enjoyable romp.

Missions can become a bit repetitive, and sometimes you do get bogged down by enemy, however, these are mute points when looking at the bigger picture. All in all an enjoyable game, and worth looking at in my opinion
