Red Faction: Armageddon (Xbox 360)

 

The versatile magnet gun marries beautifully with the series' signature destructibility to make Red Faction: Armageddon an exciting and explosive shooter.

Red Faction: Armageddon – Path to War DLC review [360/PS3/PC]

 

I don't claim to have any significant insight into the process of developing a game. I have tried it for myself a couple of times, only to be left with a handful of half-finished ideas, all utilising my wonderful, Paint-created placeholder artwork....

You should never underestimate the ever-enduring appeal of destruction. Especially wanton destruction. That's the best kind, and something that Red Faction: Guerrilla excelled in. Red Faction: Armageddon is ostensibly more of the same, but takes the...

Red Faction: Armageddon is a great follow-up to Guerrilla, and while it's not quite as large or as ambitious as its predecessor, it's still a fun, riotous and entertaining game that's well worth playing.

A subversive game gets a dull sequel.

Everything Armageddon does, it does well, in the same way that a lobotomy victim might walk and talk just fine. Guerrilla’s dangerous boldness has been excised, and what’s left is an inoffensive marketing product meant to tie in with a cheap film and...

Things ain't what they used to be.

Nanoforge "rebuild" ability is cool; Ruin mode would be a great mobile app; decent cooperative multiplayer; some nifty new weapons

Linear, claustrophobic level design sucks; graphically unimpressive; lacks competitive multiplayer modes; very repetitive enemies

See, the real issue here isn't so much that Armageddon is a mediocre game -- which it is -- rather that it's such a letdown after its excellent predecessor. I'm not sure why Volition tried to reinvent the wheel here, but (while Armageddon's got some...

Let me, for a moment, regale you with a simple tale involving a cousin of mine. It would be safe to assume that this individual may not be the sharpest knife in the block, nor is he the ‘inside joke’ of the family. He can be seen as quite confident...

REVIEW: Seek and Destroy

Balls-to-the-wall action; wonderful weapons; a carnage lover's delight.; Pretty good story; smart content-balancing in a number of ways

Short on multiplayer options; campaign drags toward the end

Will the series ever return to Earth (where it went in Red Faction II)?

I have fond memories of Volition, Inc.'s original Red Faction. Blowing holes in the ground just to see how far you could go, ripping buildings out from under enemies and busting through a wall to get to...

Great weapon selection ; Geo-Mod 2.0 is more than a gimmick ; Multiplayer modes are enjoyable ; Nano-Forge helps set game apart

Enemies have no personality ; No competitive multiplayer modes

I have fond memories of Volition, Inc.’s original Red Faction. Blowing holes in the ground just to see how far you could go, ripping buildings out from under enemies and busting through a wall to get to a multiplayer opponent were all pioneering...

The versatile magnet gun marries beautifully with the series' signature destructibility to make Red Faction: Armageddon an exciting and explosive shooter.

Magnet gun inspires destructive creativity ; Powerful arsenal and abilities ; Destroying stuff is great fun ; Extra modes offer more opportunities for mayhem

Bland story and characters ; Underground environments can get repetitive

Red Faction: Armageddon returns to the linear roots of the series with great success. Thanks to an enjoyably powerful arsenal and remarkably thorough destructibility, tearing your way through this alien-annihilating adventure is a blast. The campaign...

The Red Faction games have always been just on the edge of the huge success that developer Volition deserves for all their efforts over the years. The series got its biggest boost with the last game, Guerrilla, where building destruction - including...

Red Faction: Armageddon comes out swinging with its famous GeoMod building destruction technology along with a very fun variety of weapons, but I don't feel that the new enemies are quite as exciting to fight as the developers may have thought, and the...
