  1. With impressive visuals, landmark play mechanics, and multiplayer mayhem, this title is easily recommended for the violence-tolerant.
  2. It's definitely one of the best console first-person shooters on any system. [Apr 2003, p.89]

    A decent game. I guess in terms of originality, its not much, but the Geo-mod thing really adds to the fun in multiplayer. The graphics could have been improved a little more than their predessesor, though. Full Review »

    Red Faction II is a bad game disguised as a good if you know what i'm saying. It sucks. Good concept, James Bond style, but the levels and gameplay are a thin as a duke-nukem game. Full Review »

    Great game, gets a bit boring after you've completed story mode for the first time. Great multiplayer.
