When I first started playing Red Faction: Armageddon I was a little confused. Wait I am supposed to take a hammer and smash a wall? Ok…BOOM goes the wall. Pretty darn cool. So for a while I went around all smashy smashy. Well what do you know,...

Red Faction Guerilla was no Citizen Kane. It was a fairly straightforward game that allowed players to embark upon mental destruction sprees leveling everything in sight. Was it a deep meaningful experience? Umm no. Did it provide hours of mindless...

The Red Faction series has had a tumultuous history, from the intriguing linear adventure of the 2001 original to the joys of the open-world sandbox rendition of Mars found in 2008's excellent Guerrilla. The one common thread tying the entire series...

Despite its forgettable story and pacing issues with the campaign, Red Faction: Armageddon is good fun for letting out your inner destructive child. They ability to tear apart and repair the environments at will is a hook that keeps working, and when...

As a reviewer, one comes across games that are uniformly good or uniformly bad. Sometimes, we're stuck with a game that plays badly right up until a crucial moment which seems to throw a switch, making for a transcendent gaming experience....

Despite a few flaws, 2009's Red Faction: Guerrilla did several things extremely well. Namely, it told an amazing story about a group of rebels who picked away at a tyrannical government until it fell, and it provided a huge, open world in which you...

There are some great new weapons and modes that allow you to wreak havoc on the environment, but Red Faction: Armageddon is stifled by linear action sequences and dull storytelling....

Red Faction: Armageddon represents the fourth game in the Red Faction series, and it's interesting to see how far things have come. From first person, to third person. From destruction/manipulation of the environment to destruction/manipulation of...

Es ist "Hammer Timme"! Gemeinsam mit Darius Mason wird schweres Gerät ausgepackt, um den Weg zu Oberbösewicht Adam Hale freizumachen.Mit "Armageddon" ist nun der ingesamt vierte Teil der "Red Faction"-Reihe erhältlich. "Red Faction" (2001) und "Red...

Massima stima per chi tenta nuove strade, ma questa volta gli sviluppatori di Volition hanno inciampato. Red Faction: Armageddon rivoluziona la struttura del precedente capitolo ( Guerrilla, anno 2009) grazie all'abbandono del free roaming, a un'azione...

Der vierte Ableger der “Red Faction”-Serie ist gelandet und Sie können hier nachlesen, wie sich das Spiel zehn Jahre nach seiner Erstankunft auf dem Mars schlägt. StoryWie bereits erwähnt, geht es also wieder ab auf den roten Planeten. Fünfzig Jahre...

International Review By PCMweb on 80

Red Faction is een stoere mannengame met een verhaal dat aan elkaar hangt van clichés als verraad en uiteraard een stukje female interest. Het is door de afwisselende gameplay leuk om te blijven spelen, met als enige nadeel dat het zich grotendeels...

International Review By Gamer.no on 60

Ansiktstribals. Siste mote i gruvene på Mars! Til tross for at det fremdeles gjøres mye rett i Red Faction-serien, må det siste kapitlet i serien sies å være et aldri så lite feilsteg. Streben etter å bli et narrativt spill og etablere et univers på...

International Review By playNATION on 87

Wir geben zu: Wir waren gerade aufgrund des nur durchschnittlichen dritten Teils sehr skeptisch was Red Faction: Armageddon betrifft. Doch schon nach wenigen Spielminuten war klar: Es ist der beste Teil der gesamten Serie. Das Spiel erfindet das Rad...

International Review By GameCaptain on 79

hat sich weiterentwickelt, ich finde das gut. Nicht, dass die Vorgänger jetzt ihren Reiz verloren haben, nein, ich respektiere den Mut, etwas Neues zu machen. Klar, es ist nicht alles neu, Zerstörungen gehören zu Red Faction wie zu Lara Croft ein...
