Awesome isn't even the word,
This review is from: Red Faction Armageddon - Commando & Recon Limited Edition (PS3) (Video Game)
I do not understand the negative reviews that RFA seems to be getting because as far as I'm concerned this is easily one of the most pulse-poundingly incredible video games it's ever been my pleasure to experience.
I'd read that the free roaming sandbox that was Guerilla has been replaced by a linear game structure, being a massive, massive fan of RFG I was slightly worried that Armageddon might be a less enjoyable experience, but I can safely say that I like this game even more than it's predecessor. Red Faction's trademark destruction is now coupled with ability to repair the carnage you create in your wake giving you the chance to play in an environment which you can manipulate to your heart's content, factor into this with Singularity Cannon and the jaw dropping Magnet Gun and you have the recipe for something truly exceptional.
The graphics are servicable as opposed to exceptional, however the explosions and destruction are a thing of nihilistic beauty and the sheer wanton abandonment of the gameplay more than makes up for it not being as beautiful other AAA titles out there.
Overall I can't recommend this highly enough to anyone who likes the idea of smashing things. Plain and simple.
