If you love games which involve big guns, big explosions, and the opportunity to destroy practically everything you lay eyes on, then you’re sure to enjoy Red Faction: Guerrilla. The game has now fallen to under £10, coming at a very reasonable £9.73 from The Hut which is the cheapest deal currently available.
The story of Red Faction: Guerrilla centres upon the character of Alex Mason, an ordinary guy who travels to Mars in the hope of making an honest living. But, similar in some respects to the film Total Recall, Alec soon finds himself embroiled in a major uprising in which the Martian citizenary are attempting to prise control of the planet’s six sectors away from the oppressive EDF (Earth Defence Force). But, in all honesty, the story behind Red Faction: Guerrilla is not exactly its strongest feature.
The game’s unique selling point is the fact that, like all previous Red Faction games, the environments are fully destructible. Whether you choose to level a building piece by piece with a rocket launcher, slap a few mines to its foundations or just smash it down with an armoured car, the opportunities for mass destruction are endless. This is, as you’d imagine, absolutely superb for about the first three hours, but when the novelty wears off, the cracks in RFG start to appear.
Firstly, the story is pretty much awful, but to make things worse, the open-world format just feels shallow. It lacks refinement; the city structures look poor and the world just doesn’t feel alive. However, although these issues would put you off paying the RRP, for under a tenner this is a worthy purchase purely for the pleasure of blowing s*** up – especially if you have anger management issues.
