Mars is drowning in chaos. A separatist faction of Marauders—intent on wiping out the Martian colonists—has destroyed the terra-formers and sparked a decade-long war that has rendered the planet’s surface uninhabitable. Forced to rebuild their society underground, the colonists cling to whatever hope for survival they can find.
Deep inside the planet, an ancient alien stronghold is uncovered… and Armageddon is unleashed. A vicious alien race—locked away for millennia—will stop at nothing to cleanse the planet of life. As demolition expert Darius Mason, the grandson of Alec Mason who defeated the Earth Defense Force years ago, the Red Faction looks to you as leader, defender, and salvation. Harness the destructive powers of the Nano-Forge to transform the world into your weapon and bring it crashing down upon your enemies. The fate of Mars lies with you.
Red Faction: Armageddon expands on the critically acclaimed science-fiction franchise, building on the events of Red Faction: Guerrilla as well as the upcoming Syfy channel live-action movie, Red Faction: Origins. Your journey will take you from the frozen poles to the molten core of Mars as you wage war against the Red Faction’s greatest enemy yet.
Darius Mason can only watch as the surface of his planet is destroyed with the terra-formers. Seeking solace underground, an even greater threat emerges against humanity.
Combat alien invaders with concussive blasts, core-shattering tremblers, and bone-crunching rhino charges.
Tear down separatist outposts, rip apart alien monoliths, and reconstruct colonist defenses with the most advanced real-time destruction engine to date.
Stomp through barricades with a six-legged mech and crunch enemies beneath your fusion-powered tank.

My first Red Faction game was 2, followed by Guerilla - I really, really enjoyed both. There have been a lot of negative reviews for this one, but most of those compare Armageddon far too strongly (and unfairly) to Guerilla. Notice that this game is called Red Faction: Armageddon, NOT Red: Faction Guerilla 2. That being said, if you are a fan of the series, like third-person action shooters, and environment destructibility, then you will really, really enjoy this game. The aesthetics are great, with absolutely fantastic environmental destruction depending on what weapon you use. The music and sounds are good. The story is decent, plot and gameplay progression is considerably more linear than Guerilla's open-world freedom, however, you should not be coming in to this game expecting it to be Guerilla 2. The controls are easy to familiarize yourself with and the learning curve is minimal to moderate. There is a horde mode that can be played local co-op or online multiplayer (or even solo) that is extremely fun. You unlock the levels you beat and can start at whatever wave you have unlocked. Solo playthrough is fairly challenging but doable if you keep practicing. There is also a destruction mode that is insanely fun. You can choose whichever weapon loadout to use (you can swap weapons by going back to the equipment console) and just destroy everything in the environment. The magnet gun is amazing - shoot two (applicable) areas and the lighter object will fly toward the heavier one. Most of the weapons available will easily cut through most buildings and materials. You can play without a time limit or try the challenges - clearing the level within a time limit. If you like third-person shooters with a lot of action and colossal amounts of destruction, give this game a try. Highly recommend!
I really think, this is a step back from the previous game. Armageddon is not bad, in fact, i quite enjoyed it, but you lose a lot of freedom here. This time around, your main enemies are bugs. Giant, flash eating, love interest snatching purely for shock value BUGS! Also, it has some of the game breaking ones apparently, but i never encountered those thankfully, just saw them on someone else's youtube video. Anyway, you play as an anti hero, who's job, is of course, to save the world! Well, mars actually. The graphics are nice, and the new gimmick looks especially cool, as you repair your surroundings, plus that magnet gun is a menace! Using it to make a giant steel whirlwind that massacres those freaking bugs is awesome. All in all a fun game, i just liked 3 better.
Before buying keep in mind that valve updated the steam platform so that any time this game attempts to create a new save file it crashes completely. To fix this bug I suggest going to steam community (http://steamcommunity.com/app/55110/discussions/0/351660338698420239/#p1) and using the supplied fix. Game review: Compared to the red faction guerilla you will miss the open world exploration and a lot of driving from A to B, but instead you will receive a lot more combat action and new enemies - the deadly aliens. Also worth mentioning that the game play is held underground so the buildings are small and therefore the destruction of them is not so exciting compared to red faction guerilla. The graphics of the game are quite good but the expected game play time with minor exploration and searching for hidden secrets is about 9 hours. Overall I think that this game is a very good sequel to red faction guerilla and should be played just for the fact that you can shotgun aliens in the face. Final score 75 : 90 - game play. 50 - game crash bug. 80 - graphics 80 - overall experience.
Red Faction Armageddon is sequel to Red Faction Guerilla game. Once again you we have much stuff to destruct but it's no longer a sandbox game. You spend most of your time underground (on mars) and fight with your enemies. Is it good? To be honest, I would put it on same shelf as RF Guerilla - it's not the good old Red Faction we know, but it's not bad. Shooting is fun, and it's effective - graphics in RF Armageddon looks great! The more powerful weapon you will find yourself the more fun you will have killing enemies. While playing you can notice that this RF game is shorter than previous one. You can probably beat it without hurry in around 10 hours. Is it much? It's not bad I'd say. For this price it's rather good deal. If you enjoy FPS, but you aren't hardcore Red Faction fan, you will have fun. For me it was at most good ride.
Simple story. Controls are simple too. The mission is simple. But it's awesomely fun!! I started this game and I didn't play anything else until I finished it. As I said, it's not the story or anything deep (not that it has a bad story at all), it's the gameplay, it's very fun to play! Destroy everything, then restore it. Kill aliens, pilot robots, all full of action and futuristic weapons. There's a secret weapon that cracks me every time, but I won't tell you what that one is, you'll have to experience it yourself because if you like action third person shooter you HAVE to play this one!
