Better red than dead. Red Faction is a series that has always kept my interest, mostly due to the fact that it's one with a lot of potential to rock the gaming world. The thing is that it never really did. Sure, it managed to make a decent amount of money (save for Armageddon), but quality-wise, it never went above the good stage. So I decided to replay the entire series, just to pinpoint exactly why it is that this series didn't go as far as it did, and you know what, the problems started with the first game! There was a LOT going for it - sci-fi premise, potentially interesting story, vehicular sections, destructible environments and just general ass kicking awesomeness... saidly, the final result was a below average shooter that didn't deliver shit, save for some standard shooting and irritating segments that could've been damn cool, not to mention a story that's just lame and boring.
Violent revolution. Parker is a miner who wants to mine in Mars, hoping to find a huge fortune. Unf...
THE GOOD: The weapons. Able to destry everything. Gameplay overall is very great.
THE BAD: Some parts pretty hard, but nothing specifically bad at all. The story is not the best in the world.
SUMMARY: This is one of those games that once you start playing you just can't stop. You only play one or two or them a year and once you find one you are hooked. This game is one of the most fantastic I have ever played. The ability to blow up the ground and alter the environment you ar standing on is phenonminal. The gmaeplay is excellent and is one of the FPS's that will go down in history.
The story is pretty average, you are working on Mars and tehn you need to revolt against the company because they are abusive is the best way to put it. You are mainly trying to get to the leader of the movement and kill the head of the company. It could be worse so I am thankful it is what it is.
The weapons are what make this gmae what it is. There is a pretty large assortment and with them you can destroy the ...
THE GOOD: EVERYTHING! RUNS LIKE HALF-LIFE SO IT RUNS ON THE SLOWEST OF COMP.
THE BAD: NOTHING! (LAG)
SUMMARY: At 1st I wasnt sure if I wanted to get this game at all. So like I always do, DOWNLOAD THE DEMO! so I did and If foun the best FPS game i had ever gotten!!! It was amazing! and its great even on the demo you can play online! www.redfaction.com go there and download the world wide demo Single/Muli and get playin beacasue this game ROX!
If ppl think it sucks then those ppl only care about the f******* graphics so they can go f*** them selfs !
SUMMARY: Geo Mod would be great if i could blow up anything I wanted to. Its just a way to make the player a 1000 times more angry and anxious at trying to find a way through something. The Sniper rifle sucks the precision rifle makes for a better sniper rifle and I get annoyed with the same things over and over, not a big enough selection of bad guys, I was shocked when I came across the giant worms. Wow something thats a challenge. The only thing I found a challenge other than that was trying to figure out the dumbass maze I am trying to work my way through. I dont know about anyone else I hate having to take 2 weeks to go through a maze of Crrrrap. The game is very dissapointing, including the multiplayer. The only positive side to all this? I didnt pay a dime for it. Which I wouldnt have given them in the first place! Maybe whomever worked on this game will realize that it REAlly DOES suck ass and should create a game a little more realist...
THE GOOD: Weapons, geo-mod, graphics, sound. Hell, just about everything.
THE BAD: Storyline. Replay value.
SUMMARY: The engine ownz but come on. Half-Life had us playing for weeks. I completed RF in a few hours without cheats. The replay value is 0. No secret levels to find. No other ways to win. Just 1 path. start---------------finish. We need a dynamic story line not a static one!!! Who has had RF for more thanm 2 days and not finished it? If you have, I sure hope something is wrong with your PC preventing you finishing RF for your own sake. if not, you suck. It is EASY. It is simple. It is fun. But most of all it is booring after the first time round.
DOES ANYONE IN THE FPS INDUSTRY KNOW WHAT A DYNAMIC STORY LINE IS???
Red Faction is the newest and most hyped up first person shooter in a long time. With the brand new Geo-Mod system, you are able to completely destroy your environment, no matter what it is, glass bridges, buildings, whatever you see, you can destroy. This can be used to find new areas, create new areas, and even set up traps where all your enemies can do is fall in a hole and wait to get shot. But is Red Faction just a first person shooter with a new innovative feature, or does it offer something that many other first person shooters are missing, a good story line? Well, Red Faction has an incredible story line with great enemy AI. If there was ever a first person shooter that has lived up to its hype, then it would be Red Faction.
As a human, you Parker have become fed up with your over controlling abusive Martian corporate masters. So you do what any good human would do, you pack up your equipment and you rebel. Along you way you will come across many areas filled with strange an...
