Red Faction Guerilla
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
Set 50 years after the climactic events of the original Red Faction, Red Faction: Guerrilla allows players to take the role of an insurgent fighter with the newly re-established Red Faction movement as they battle for liberation from the oppressive Earth Defense Force. Red Faction: Guerrilla re-defines the limits of destruction-based game-play with a huge open-world, fast-paced guerrilla-style combat, and true physics-based destruction.
- Open World Guerrilla Warfare:
You decide who, when, where and how to battle. Utilize guerrilla tactics, improvised weaponry, and modified vehicles to lead insurgent attacks on EDF targets. Launch attacks based on your own gameplay style, take on missions in any order you choose, or engage in destructive activities to weaken the EDF's grip on Mars.
- Strategic Destruction:
Use destruction to your tactical advantage, setting ambushes or chain reaction explosions to attack enemy strongholds and permanently modify the game environment.
- Leverage fully-dynamic physics-based destruction to improvise on the fly:
Blow holes in a wall or floor to set an ambush or escape, take out a staircase to stop your pursuers, or drive vehicles through blown out walls.
- Evolving & Emergent Gameplay:
Carve your path through an ever changing landscape as you improvise your combat tactics - mixing gameplay styles, vehicles, weapons and explosives to defeat the EDF.
- Epic Sci-Fi Setting:
Explore the huge, unforgiving Martian landscape, from the desolate mining outpost of Parker to the gleaming EDF capital city of Eos; then tear through the fully destructible open-world environments swarming with EDF forces, Red Faction resistance fighters, and the downtrodden settlers caught in the cross-fire.
- Multiplayer Combat:
There is no place to hide when you put your guerrilla warfare skills to the test in a variety of highly destructive multiplayer combat modes.
A good sequel, but lacks the strength of the originalgamma_rad | June 13, 2015 | See all gamma_rad's reviews »
Pro: *Sandbox gameplay, complete with all the goodness it brings of side quests, exploration freedom and just the ability to go do mayhem between missions. *Good solid third person shooter *Fun destructible environments. *Fairly good plot Con: *they toned down the destructive abilities considerably, and you can no longer destroy the ground itself, only man-made buildings - which was the only thing which made the original Red Faction unique.

Imagine a game like GTA. Now throw in destructible environments. Now give your character a moral standpoint. The latter may put many off but to those with a penchant for story, it makes the game more compelling. The obvious draw of the game is its destructible environments and ability to commit terrorism on an evil government. This game mechanic itself is actually worth the full price of the game but RF:G adds to the appeal with a decent revolution simulation and a passable storyline. A decent sandbox that will keep you busy for awhile.

Red Faction Guerilla is an open world third person game, with interactive environment and destructible structures, making your gameplay a lot more fun. The graphics of the game are great, very well detailed, but the sounds were a bit disappointing since they were not so present during the game. The gameplay is great and very user friendly, making it enjoyable to everyone. The story itself is not so good, but the missions were very well done, they are always different and have massive destruction. I recommend this to all the open world gamers and especially to those who like explosions and kills in the game, because it is a great combination of both worlds in just a game. Overall, great work from the developers, a lot of improvements were made after the first game of the series came out.
Really fun gameajoshi | Nov. 28, 2014 | See all ajoshi's reviews »
I'll be honest- I never finished this game. I played most of the campaign and then lost all my game data and some missions are *very* annoying so I didn't have it in me to replay the whole game. However, if you like smashing things, get this game. You can smash things with a hammer, rockets, bombs, robots, explosive charges, tiny black hole bombs, and I'm sure a bunch of other weapons. The mining charges were my favorites though since you can really control the demolition of a building. Nothing better than breaking up most of a building, placing a few charges in the right spots, and then watching the entire structure collapse as you press that detonator. You get 'scrap' for destroying buildings and vehicles so the game actively wants you to destroy things. Scrap is the currency used to buy/upgrade your weapons and getting more scrap is always fun. I like to have a few games where I can just go in, wreak havoc and come out not having destroyed my save. A little mindless destruction can be so great after a long day at work. Right now I'm letting Saints Row 4 fill that gap, but this is a great game regardless. The story wasn't all that great, but it wasn't bad either. Not like it mattered- I was happy to destroy whatever EDF structure the main quest wanted me to destroy, no questions asked.
Perfect destructionSinisterDragon | March 15, 2014 | See all SinisterDragon's reviews »
The destruction engine in this game is second to none. Literally everything can be destroyed and always in spectacular ways. It is so much fun to sneak in and carefully place explosives on an enemy building's supports and then detonate and watch the it all collapse very realistically in my opinion. Its just as much fun to jump inside a mech (think power loader from Aliens) and run through buildings, vehicles and enemies. It also features multiplayer which can be good at times. Its the frantic madness that makes it fun rather than the tactical shooting. There is also a mode where you try to beat others scores by causing as much destruction as possible in a given time limit. This is a very fun game that you could easy sink hours into just blowing things up and watching the pieces fly.
