Red Faction: Armageddon
Honestly this game is a big disappointment for me, i played the demo and its completely different. I havent played the first game in a long time and when they started out the demo i was completely lost why they were after him and what he did. Then they start him underground alright i hate being underground and it dark places. Being underground limits this game so much its not going to be like the first one where you can roam around in vehicles outside and nice and free your going to be jammed into a cave. The guns are different but i think there cool, but they totally changed the game all together. Instead of having jetpacks u have abilities instead? Im still completely lost in this game and also now you dont have sledgehammers, that was one of the best things about the game you and ur sledgehammer and bustin stuff up and upgrading ur sledgehammer. In all honesty they messed this game up and i would rather play the first one and after seeing this i really want to go play the first one.
Dead Space is 1st to use Alien Infestation???
Think not...there's been Alien themed games & expansions for a long time. As for below ground ONLY...not true, there is above ground encounters & Buildings to destroy. Lots of time has been put into this game & the GEO-MOD code has been updateed dramatically to allow for unique collapsing and enhanced details. If you played Guerilla & liked it, you should get this game. If you only want Dead Space to use Aliens, then u will be disappointed by many more games to come. Personally, this game will keep me busy until Battlefield 3 is released (Possibly the BEST Squad-Shooter ever. (At least on the PC 64 player Servers). Either way, bagging on this prior to release is NOT helpful & only adds to the confusion generated by the new storyline, which adds a new enemy that is needed. I want to see how Aliens react when a Nano Forge is used or a structure collapses. RED FACTION Guerilla is STILL an excellent game & Dead Space is always going to be DEAD SPACE ( Also a good game, but not the same in many ways as the RED FACTION series. So comparisons are useless for Preview Buzz comments IMO)
Going to be so, so great of a game.
I bought Guerrilla about a week after it came out and played campaign mode and i loved it. I got internet on my ps3 and i began playing multiplayer and i loved it. I was also a big fan of dead space. I've seen plenty of gameplay videos and trailers for Red Faction Armageddon, and it looks to be a little more on the 'creepy' side. The environment is much darker and compact. It now looks like you can be easily cornered or trapped in a small place when in Guerrilla this was not possible. I actually like the new twist of fighting aliens and the darker scarier environment. I've played Guerrilla to a pulp and need this game to come out sooner.
Demo = Awesome
Alright..I can see that there are some mixed feelings about this game already. First..I don't think you should judge a game before it comes out. Second..I can tell you from playing the demo that the feel of RF Guerilla is still there (you can still topple buildings crushing unsuspecting people/aliens underneath)..but with an added element of strategy and shooterness. The aliens are a very nice touch and create a sense of purpose to the game/plotline. I also have to say that Geo-Mod 2.5 is, well, pretty sexy. The graphics are sweet and the ambiance is ingulfing. I can honestly say, that from the demo, this game will be terrific and anyone who has played any one of the series before should definatly get this one.
Looks pretty cool since they've added aliens!!!
It's about time they decided to add an alien threat to this series since it's always been a MARS based game from the beginning if you think about it, why shouldn't there be aliens on this planet? I just recently bought Guerilla and will probably trade it in towards this title and just go from there. CAN'T WAIT FOR BATTLEFIELD 3!!!!!!!! The videos are giving it a grand boost for me to grab it 4sho!!!!
Short, No replay value.
This game was not what I was expecting, sadly it is not as good as its predecessor Red Faction Guerrilla. Online it has a survival mode in which you must hold out against aliens on multiple maps which can get tiresome after a while and sadly the ruin pack is just destroying things which you must buy as an add on first. The game was nothing as I expected it to be I would honestly not recommend this too anyone, the online is boring and the campaign is short, Guerrilla had a free roam style campaign that was amazing sadly this is a linear game and the plot is very bland. If you want a good game get Red Faction Guerrilla it's cheaper, has about the same destruction, granted it may be a year or 2 older but it's still very good.
This game has so much to it that you won't get bored. Everything is descructible, EVERYTHING (even more so than battlefield). You have some incredible upgrades. The voice acting is great and the story is very good. The graphics are awesome and it runs VERY smoothly . Get it NOW, its only 20$!!
A game with surprising lasting appeal.
After playing the demo, I needed the play the full version of the game. I will admit that the game started much earlier than in the demo and I became a bit overwhelmed while playing even to the point that I was very close to trading the game in, but I stuck with it and was glad that I stuck with the game. I'm not sure why this game is criticized by a lack of story, but I loved the storyline. I love games where it's you against the world and redeeming yourself. RF: Armageddon story in a nutshell: Mason gets tricked into letting loose a long dormant alien race while getting blamed. He sets out, battling the Aliens, and to some extent the other Red Faction and the only people that he can trust is his female friend Kara and another Red Faction member Frank. The weapons in the game doesn't fall short in the demolitions medium. The magnet gun is really fun to use and the singularity cannon can turn buildings into rubble in no time, but the one weapon that I truly enjoyed using is a weapon that is unlocked after playing through the main campaign once. Another fun aspect of the game is the use of what is called the Nano Forge, basically, NF is great to use to blow back aliens that get a little too close or to protect yourself. The lasting appeal of the game is in the fact that you can save up salvage and buy unlimited ammo. Now, you can cruise through the game and just blow up buildings with impunity without worrying about running out of ammo especially with the singularity cannon.
Sounds cool but.....
Like it says sounds cool but how do you go from rebellion to a fight for survival. sounds like a cool idea for a new species killing people but that sounds too much like dead space. Personally sounds ok, but if they keep the destruction of buildings ill give it a try.
I love the first Red Faction, but the weapons menu are easier to access and the missions are great. They have really out done them selfs on this one. I love the graphics and game play. Great game !!! Keep up the great work !!!
