excellent old time shooter
Red Faction is a first person shooter that keeps you on your toes as well as keeps your mind running. The story is about miners in Mars who are overworked and end up dying from some sort of plague. As a result of this, the miners that have survived this plague start to rebel against the mine security and authorities. You are one of those miners. The environment in this game is to some degree alterable in the sense that explosives will put actual holes in the wall, create new doorways and even required to get around puzzles. This is all possible by Geo-mod technology. So ammo conservation is required to progress through the game. There are also vehicles that can do the same such as the tunnel digger and the submarine. For example, if you have a chance to blow up a bridge to get rid of a tank, you better take it. There is a smorgasbord of weapons here to choose from. You have: riot batons, riot shields, hand guns, sub–machine guns, shotguns, assault rifles, sniper rifles, remote charges, grenades, flame throwers, RPGs, big machine guns, fusion rocket launchers and more. Multiplayer in this game also takes advantage of Geo-mod technology so multiplayer is very interesting and challenging. You do have the option to add bots or even subtract a 2nd player. The graphics in this game are not all that great but keep in mind it is an older game. Sound is a little bit better than the graphics and the gunfire is not half bad. All in all it will keep you occupied until you get the next chapter in the series. Have fun.
Red Faction Reaction
I was at my local Gamestop with a friend looking at games.I ended up buying Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 2: Substinance, SOCOM, and Red Faction.I started playing Red Faction straight away.You are a miner who works on Mars who starts to get sick of his job after a plague strikes.You end up going into the rebellion against your security overlords.Story mode is pretty cool, but honestly I like multiplayer better.Not only can you play with another player, but at the same time you can add bots.Me and my friends usually go against the bots on a team on impossible mode.Oh yeah, I allmost forgot....THE BOTS NEVER STOP SHOOTING!!!!The bots will pop out of nowhere and kill you with one blow.The only bad part is you can respawn in the middle of a warzone!!!I highly reccomend this game for any shooter fan.
I'm not into future fps, but give this a thumbs up
This game has a bit of a challenge to it, but the storyline is EPIC. I love rebellion games. But this gets grand prize.
one of the bases for the ps3
This game has graphics that i call the big 3 fps for ps2, it literrally pushes the ps2 to its limits, and is very fun for the price. you can kill EVERYBODY!!! and this game was one of the few ps3 games were you can change the envirorment, for example, if you are to lazy to use a door, you can blow a hole in a wall, it is like the blieprint for ps3 titles (btw the other big 3 fps are black, and killzone)
this game is cool because you get to blow up everything and kill anyone you want to, and the story is great but aside form that that graphics are not that good but they are ok.
The Greatest FPS I Own
Even though it looks slightly dated, Red Faction is quite fun to play (not that the graphics should change how fun it is). I like the long single player mode and the freedom in the game, but sometimes (twice I recall), they tell you to be stealthy. IMO, going around as a guy in a lab coat is much more dull than using a machine gun to kill them all. The only difference in the multi-player mode (as opposed to Killzone or other FPSs) is the fact that they sometimes put weapons behind some of the walls, but otherwise, it's nothing you haven't seen from another FPS. In a nutshell, buy the game and enjoy it.
THE GOOD- lots of different weapons such as, remote charge(c4), two different rocket launchers, guard baton, shotgun, assualt rifle, precision rifle, pistol, heavy machine gun and some more. most of the envirnment is destructible so u can blast ur way around doors and through walls. enemies get harder to kill as the game progresses. decent story. never a dull moment. THE BAD- the graphics are old but i guess back then they were decent. HINT- never run out of an explosive! sometimes you need it to progress through the story
