    A short but intense flash of arcade brilliance. [Issue#205, p.94]

    All in all Red Faction: Battleground is a funny action game for some hours of distraction, and nice to play with friends at home, too.

However, this game does have some fun challenges like checkpoint races and survival. It's worth its price of £1.49/$2.99 and it has some good shooting and driving levels. I will mention that the game gets difficult after the first few levels, and if you fail, Winters will insult you, making you want to hurl your controller at the screen. The overall game is definitely worth buying at its current price, but is certainly not as good as the other Red Faction games. Full Review »
