This is my first official review for Gamestop and I chose this game because #1 It's awesome #2 It's a steal right now, and #3 I've never been compelled to write a review until now after the hundreds of hours of gaming and 20k+ GamerScore. You HAVE to get this game if you like open-world action games like GTA and Red Dead. The map is huge, with 5 different districts so each time you enter a new district the landscape changes and it's not just "the red planet" the whole time. The only issue I saw was some texture pop-ins with distant mountains, but it's hardly noticeable when your running, or driving, to save your life from the EDF (the bad people). One of the first "modern" games I played was the original Red Faction and I remember loving the Geo-Mod, and I love it even more now. There are challenges you can do to see how fast you can bring down a structure with a given amount of explosives or just your sledge. But yeah, other than the surface of Mars itself, any building, structure, car, or whatever, can be destroyed. But that's just a fun addition to the game, the core game is really enjoyable and if you like your games to last around 20-40 hours, then this is a steal at it's current price. The controls are tight, being a 3rd person shooter, and the driving controls are much better than Borderlands and more similar to GTA. I've played a ton of open-world action/rpg games, and this is right up there with any of them. This game also has a lot of content, and not a lot of space in between, which is a plus. So in the end, if you are trying to find a game to play while getting ready for GTA V and this one slipped past your radar, you owe it to yourself to get this game, you won't be disappointed.
yes: I recommend this product
