Set 50 years after the climactic events of the original Red Faction, Red Faction: Guerrilla allows players to take the role of an insurgent fighter with the newly re-established Red Faction movement as they battle for liberation from the oppressive Earth Defense Force. Red Faction: Guerrilla redefines the limits of destruction-based gameplay with a huge open-world, fast-paced guerrilla-style combat, and true physics-based destruction.

Open World Guerrilla Warfare: You decide who, when, where and how to battle. Utilise guerrilla tactics, improvised weaponry, and modified vehicles to lead insurgent attacks on EDF targets. Launch attacks based on your own gameplay style, take on missions in any order you choose, or engage in destructive activities to weaken the EDF's grip on Mars.

Strategic Destruction: Use destruction to your tactical advantage, setting ambushes or chain reaction explosions to attack enemy strongholds and permanently modify the game environment. Leverage fully-dynamic physics-based destruction to improvise on the fly: blow holes in a wall or floor to set an ambush or escape, take out a staircase to stop your pursuers, or drive vehicles through blown out walls.

    Evolving & Emergent Gameplay: Carve your path through an ever changing landscape as you improvise your combat tactics - mixing gameplay styles, vehicles, weapons and explosives to defeat the EDF.

      Epic Sci-Fi Setting: Explore the huge, unforgiving Martian landscape, from the desolate mining outpost of Parker to the gleaming EDF capital city of Eos, then tear through the fully destructible open-world environments swarming with EDF forces, Red Faction resistance fighters, and the downtrodden settlers caught in the cross-fire.

        Multiplayer Combat: There is no place to hide when you put your guerrilla warfare skills to the test in a variety of highly destructive multiplayer combat modes.

        Whats the best way to rescue hostages from a building? Conventional gaming tactics dictate either the stealthy approach, or the run and gun approach - certainly I was never able to drive a jeep through a hailstorm of gunfire, nosedive straight through the wall of a building onto the second floor, before leaping out, smashing a hole in the floor with a sledge hammer to drop down by the hostages, before lobbing a couple of sticky bombs onto the ceiling to bring the jeep crashing down to ground level, before piling everyone in and the exiting through the back wall in a spray of debris and smoke. And now that I've done that, every game where I'm channeled along a corridor will feel less delightfully exuberant.

        Of course there was the odd mishap with my rescue approach - a particular highlight was crashing through the building to gain quick access, before leaping out just in time to see the rest of the structure topple over onto the hostages. Hilarious. And its this kind of on the fly thinking that gives every single mission and objective in Red Faction such immense playability. If you want to straight shoot your way around, you can, and you're well catered for. The combat is nicely done, the physics exceptional. If you want to mix it up and toss a few strategic sticky bombs around then go right ahead. Make your own entrances into bases and buildings to meet your obective. If like me you want to charge in all guns blazing in a orgy of physical destruction, finally you can. Hooray!

        A beautiful game in so many ways - Its a truly heart warming sight to take out the structural elements of a building and watch it crumble into a pile - the physics behind this sort of madness is exceptionally clever. Take out enough of a building to make it critical and you can see the buckling, you can sense the weight. A panel pops here, a window smashes there, and then it gradually caves in. Astounding. Truly it is a joy to behold. The physics have perfect weight and they're just the right side of arcade madness to keep things dynamic without getting stupid. Every single gun battle becomes a scene of chaotic carnage with bodies and debris everywhere. The missions themselves are well varied and take ample opportunity to give you free reign to destroy as much or as little as you need to.

        Graphically its all rather lovely, with some great lighting and texturing. Buildings are by necessity fairly simple, but theres enough detail there to make them look good, especially when in delightful motion. Combat is good, driving is good, the sense of freedom well purveyed through Mars, and theres a ton of side objectives to complete and also mini destruction challenges which challenge your structural thinking as well as cater to the need to explode.

        Its a far more cohesive 'world' than many free roaming games, and generally a pleasure to explore.

        Problems are minor - some areas of the map are a little dull, and driving between distant sections can occasionally be a little grating. Theres a few too many 'vehicle fetch' missions, which are dull and the odd glitch with the localisation - prepare to enjoy being chatted to in German now and again.

        Minor niggles all though, this is an awesome game - theres a huge amount of attention to detail, the world works just right, the balance between the factions and your presence is well set up, the missions are entertaining, the technology is astounding. Its a game of stories, a game that fills you with utter glee as an audacious and completely insane plan works, often not as intended - a building collapsing unplanned on the advancing soldiers, an enemy with a sticky bomb stuck to his foot, flailing and screaming - amazing and wonderful. Buy it.

         Good but not Great

        The game is good but it's hardly up there with the best of them. All this game reminds me of is Mercenaries 2 !!!
        Don't get me wrong it is a good game but it is just so repetitive ! It's hardly tests you to the limit !!
        I can't really wait to complete the game so that i can trade it in and get back the majority of the money that i wasted on it !!!

        Online play is reasonable but nothing special ! All in all there have been and will be better games out this year ! I'd only get this if your bored for a week or so !

        Still.... this is only my opinion !

         Better the GTA IV ???? ............I think so !!!

        Think of GTA IV on mars..... well yes may sound weird and not to great but i promise you the destruction you can cause is heavenly and i have never seen any thing so life like. With the time they have taken over this i am glad to say it has been worth waiting for as i have been an red faction fan from the start .I was disappointed when i first heard it was going to be in third person however now i have played it I'm glad to say this was a positive change and opens up the game to more possibilities With the GTA IV style of gameplay and with so many similarities you no what to expect even just by playing the demo.
        Overall this is a futuristic version of GTA IV with good guns, original vehicles, original missions and the unbelievable destruction.
        But listen you will still love the game even if you didn't like GTA IV, its just got a lot of similar features and it is better then GTA IV.

         Great fun

        I really don't know how anybody gave this less than 4 stars, but they are entitled to their opinion. Not a shooter as people have been labelling it, Red Faction is a sandbox game that is fantastic fun and definitely a technical marvel compared to the ropiness of comparable titles such as Mercenaries 2 or Saints Row 2. The graphics are good and the shooting just about makes the grade. What really stands out though is the destruction and the physics surrounding this. Volition really have pulled something fantastic off here. Every building is descructible and fun to destroy, great fun. You'll see every structure as a challenge. How can I make that collapse? Despite what people have said, this is not the only element to the game. The open world works well with it's area liberation similar to that of Crackdown and the variation of missions and side quests with great exploration. If you enjoyed the titles I mentioned earlier, then this is a must buy for you and everyone should give strong consideration to a technical triumph and fun game that doesn't get boring quickly. Hasn't achieved so many good reviews by accident.
