  • Summary: Red Faction: Guerrilla is a 3rd person, open-world action shooter set on Mars, 50 years after the events of the original Red Faction. Players assume the role of an insurgent fighter with the newly re-established Red Faction movement as they battle for liberation from the oppressive Earth Defense Force. Throughout their fight for freedom, players carve their own path, wreaking havoc across the vast, open-world environment of Mars, from the desolate mining outpost of Parker to the gleaming EDF capital city of Eos. Utilizing improvised weapons, explosives and re-purposed mining equipment and vehicles, Red Faction: Guerrilla allows players to tear through fully destructible environments in an unforgiving Martian landscape swarming with EDF forces, Red Faction resistance fighters, and the downtrodden settlers caught in the cross-fire. Red Faction: Guerrilla also features a robust multiplayer component, including several modes focused on destruction-based gameplay. [THQ] Expand

    An in your face, balls to the wall, destroy everything in your path treat. With a ton of missions to complete, an entire planet to destroy, and online modes that will have you sitting in front of your television for hours upon hours, this game has it all. I know this has been said a ton of times before, but it holds true for this game; if Red Faction: Guerrilla doesn't get your blood pumping, check your pulse.
  2. By delivering a solid campaign mode, an incredibly vast open world, destructible environments and addictive multiplayer modes, THQ and Volition brings you a high quality game that you can’t miss. Red Faction: Guerrilla is a must have in your collection and it won’t be forgotten when award season starts somewhere by the end of the year. While people aren’t expecting the game that much, they will be extremely surprised by it. We highly recommend it.
  3. No matter what mode you enter, Red Faction: Guerrilla delivers on its promise of destruction, and offers an experience unlike anything else out there.
  4. Though repetitive, this third-person action game is a great open-world adventure for anyone with an appetite for destruction.
  5. There are a few missteps here and there that can fluctuate the difficulty within a mission (the AI can be a bit iffy, and if you work through a building demolition fast enough, you can avoid much more trouble than if you dawdle), but overall, this is a game worth checking out.
  6. Like it's predecessors the gameplay in Red Faction: Guerilla is heavily focused on the destructible environments, this time focusing on the environments rather that the geography. And smashing your way through the game is pure entertainment - despite some bugs and odd sudden deaths. With a solid and equally entertaining multiplayer mode we have no problem recommending this game for gamers everywhere.
  7. A decent game, but it feels like the developers invested too heavily in the physic-based destruction and neglected to create a well-rounded experience that could contend with the likes of its own "Saints Row." [Aug 2009, p.70]

    This is the first 10 i have given. This game is awesome, physic work every well and online play is awesome. The world is open ended (which i am a huge fan of) and you can literally blow up everything. Its a very good game worth at least a rental. Expand

    Hey Sitan, try actually finishing the game OR changing the difficulty, or both, u'll luv it man. Anyway, RF3 is a game you don't want to miss.The destruciton is awsome. Like, you have no idea until you play it. Any building, and I mean ANY building you see, can be deformed any way you like it. The whole new gameplay of guerilla warfare is fresh, origional, and just plain awsome, especially if you like riggin ur truck with C4 and driving it into a building. If that doesn't make you smile, you shouln't even be playin video games. Mulitplayer is also wicked fun, but takes some getting used to. All that needs to change is the mission variety, but other than that, a must buy. Expand

    It's a great game. It would have been 10/10 if they added a few extra things such as the ability to recruit Red Faction members when not on a mission. Expand

    On the surface RFG might just be a run of the mill sandbox in the way of mercenaries 2 but I think it has a grander scale of destruction than World in Flames. One thing RFG nails is the destruction and deformation of buildings, they are an obsession to wreck with a vehicle or with grenades. Their are odd glitces but they are still masses of fun to blow to pieces. Mars however is one repetitive place, as such it can get a little boring to overlook the degraded red planet over and over. The game is tough as nails and can get really frustrating but it requires a lot of strategy. So Red Faction Guerilla is excellent but borders on repetition a lot. If you like your sandbox's filled with variety in terms of environments and missions you will not find it. However if you like to blow things up endlessy don't think twice about enduring it. Expand

    Worth the admission price for the single player campaign. But the online multiplayer, while initially engaging, just didn't keep me interested for more than a couple of sessions. Expand

    Red Faction is a classic example of a horrifically designed video game masking as something more than it is. You need an awful lot of time on your hands to repeat missions over and over that are poorly explained and arbitrarily decided. I give up. Very poor game. Expand
