Operation: Destroy everything.

Furrek | July 1, 2014 | See all Furrek's reviews »

The first time I played this game I was amazed. I didn't started normal game or tutorial, but started with glass house. This was the first game I have played that allowed me to destroy environment. So I did tunnel and started the real game. They way you could fight Ultor was amazing. I mean, on begin there is a big vehicle - you can destroy it with bazooka, but this is not only way. It's standing on a rock bridge, so you can destroy what's supporting bridge and make vehicle fall into hole. Also, sometimes you can find very interesting things by not following the main route. Multiplayer was also amazing. You could dig your own tunnels and sit there using a railgun (it's a weapon that show what's behind walls and when fired it went throught everything). It's already old game, but still have active multiplayer scene. Red Faction is the only game that I did speedrun. Well, it only shows how much I liked this game to do something like that. If you are not allergic to old games, play this great title. It's worth everything, there are no games like that nowadays.

An old school classic

geist_der_sonne | May 19, 2014 | See all geist_der_sonne's reviews »

Red Faction is quite simple in his mechanics: no superpowers, no superweapon, no rpg elements... it's just an old school fps with nice settings, nice levels and a cool engine that lets you destroy walls. However, in its simpicity it is a very entertaining and fast-paced game. The game is linear, but levels are very big and well structured. The first part of the game isn't very challanging, but as the game progresses it becomes harder and harder, so you'll have to sweat for the final victory! Even if the graphics look old and low-detailed for today standards (Red Faction was released in 2001) they are still enjoyable and the rythm of the action won't give you time to complain about appearance! This is a true classic: it's not perfect, but it's a lot of fun and probably the best game of the series.

A classic to keep

maces006 | Oct. 5, 2013 | See all maces006's reviews »

Red faction has a very interesting story, as well as mechanics that make the game very interesting. Red Faction runs on geo-mod technology which allows for destrution of the games environment, although it would take a while to blast a big enough hole into the wall (i tried to build a tunnel). The variety of weapons on Red Faction is quiet reasonable, as well as the health system. This game is really enjoyable although due to the age of the game it can have issues on the latest OS, and also there is no waypoint/minimap to tell you where you have to go so you can get lost if your not careful. I would highly recommende this game.

The game that started a trend

forgot2shave | Aug. 14, 2013 | See all forgot2shave's reviews »

When this game came out, it was unlike anything else before it. Never had you been able to destroy the world around you and use it to your advantage. While the campaign is pretty fun and certainly had an epic feel to it when it came out, it was the multiplayer where this game really shined. Shooting out walls, finding secret rooms, creating your own fort; all of this made it such a unique experience. The controls are pretty standard and the weapon choices are varied enough to keep it fun. This is definitely a classic that is worth your time.

Good ol' classic!

Great old game from the time when FPS's were decent, this is an actiony romp, with quite an advanced destruction engine for the time. I don't think it can beat the original Half-Life for sheer brilliance, but it still a great game! The graphics are slightly dated, but not by a huge amount, and the AI is lacking, but overall its great fun!
