Good - Not the best Red Faction,
This review is from: Red Faction Armageddon - Commando & Recon Limited Edition (PS3) (Video Game)
Honestly, if you've played any of the previous Red Faction games, this is worth the purchase. I feel I need to say that it's not fantastic though.
The game is enjoyable, and really fun. The magnet gun is a lot of fun to play around with, as is reconstruction. The game itself is a linear FPS and has a good coherent story. I would complain that the main campaign is short, and at times it can get slightly boring and repetitive. There were also a few frustrating moments (mainly near the end) that I just ran through the entire level because there is no benefit to actually killing the massive hoarde of creatures that attack you. Seriously, the game will through hundreds of monsters at you in the final places, and it can take a LONG TIME to kill them all. If the last one gets you, you have to do it all over again. Basically, updating the checkpoint system would resolve this issue.
Aside from those points, it is a really enjoyable game with nice graphics, and it really doesn't deserve the bad reviews it has been getting. The main campaign is solid and well presented, but just not as strong as the rest of them.
