About Red Faction: Guerrilla

Unlike previous instalments in the Volition-developed shooter, Guerrilla shifts perspectives to a third person viewpoint, with the action taking places 50 years after the original title. Fans of the series can expect a healthy dose of brick busting action, as you wield the power to destroy virtually any part of the environment at your discretion.

Red Faction: Guerrilla sets a new benchmark for destruction-based gameplay. It's an absolute blast!

  • The engaging morale system
  • The solid multiplayer component

We dislike

  • The lack of a decent story
  • The monotonous, long distance journeys
