  1. It may be a one trick pony but Saints Row 2 in space will give anyone an appetite for destruction.
  2. The game's chief appeal really is wrapped up in Alec Mason's capacity for devastation and whether or not the endless opportunities to cause widespread mayhem (albeit in a good cause) are worth slogging through some of the game's drawbacks is down to the appetite for destruction of each individual player. Those who demand in-depth plots, revolutionary gameplay and a twist around every corner won't have much use for Red Faction: Guerrilla. But if you enjoy blowing things up, this well may be one of the best video games ever made.

    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]
  4. Though the explosions scale with progress, and the act of detonation continues to be a giddy pleasure, Mars could do with a thicker atmosphere.

    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'tHey 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. Full Review »
