  1. Red Faction is not a glorious revolution, yet neither is it a wafer-thin façade of the sandbox genre. Its foundation is strong, it’s fun in a mindless way, and its design intrigued us, but ultimately it’s not something that has been built to last.
  2. Red Faction is the very definition of a solid 7/10 - a game that should have been better, but offers more than enough to warrant a purchase during the quiet months.
  3. Though the explosions scale with progress, and the act of detonation continues to be a giddy pleasure, Mars could do with a thicker atmosphere.
  4. For my liking, Red Faction Guerrilla has too many inconsistencies to be considered grade-A material, but then maybe it was never designed to be that way.
  5. Volition’s Geo-Mod 2.0 tech is leagues ahead of anything that we’ve seen previously, but you can’t help but think that Guerrilla is ultimately little more than a glorified tech demo.

    The stark landscape, self-serious characters and po-faced story are completely at odds with the sense of mischievous fun the destruction naturally evokes...If Volition is interested in crafting an instant classic, putting this destruction in Saints Row 3 would be an excellent place to start. [July 2009, p.110]
  7. 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.
  8. Good game, refined and with solid gameplay. Some problems don't let Red Faction show all its potentials.
  9. 70
    Red Faction: Guerrilla knows it is a game about making buildings fall over and it doesn’t purport to be anything else.
  10. Red Faction: Guerrilla scores, and it certainly adds a nice twist on the established open-world game formula.

    Some glitchy controls can make achieving some pro times a real burden and the story is missing some flavor. However, games are about fun. The Some glitchy controls can make achieving some pro times a real burden and the story is missing some flavor. However, games are about fun. The over the top destruction is so rediculously fun and fresh that it outweighs any flaws this game has, and yes EVERY game has flaws, and if we rated games based on flaws, no game would ever get a perfect score. A ten all the way, baby! Full Review »

    The game is absolutely fenominal, I don't know where to begin, but the level of destruction and absolute fun of the missions in the game The game is absolutely fenominal, I don't know where to begin, but the level of destruction and absolute fun of the missions in the game makes it stand out. It's like Mercenaries 2 and Farcry 2 but the character isn't a mercenary and they fight for a cause, in this game, to liberate Mars. To me, the only thing that brings this game down is the how sometimes it's hard with the constant waves of reinforcements from the enemy EDF. If I could, I'd rather give it a 9.5 than a 10, but I can only give it a 10. Full Review »
