Red Faction: Armageddon. Salvation or Catastrophe?


Being another game who pics a game up quite often and gets often excited by game trailers showcasing an awesome game I'm well aware of the games coming out. Well recently Red Faction: Armageddon has recently caught my Eye as one of the favourite forms of free-roam gameplay I find to be is that, that has destruction.
What is Destruction? As Dictionary.com defines it "the condition of being destroyed demolition; annihilation." Those words to bring excitement to the gamers mind! I found that no game defines this better than Red Faction Guerilla with the game being absolutely superb, now this is information from what I've seen i am well aware Crysis had good destruction but we won't go into that.

Another game that defines destruction well is Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and with the new Frostbite 2 engine this should get even better, but this is some info for another blog!



Red Faction offered to use Destruction and a lot of it. According to the developers the new game should step this up and all gamers should be very impressed by the quality, I do admit some Previewof the weapons in the game do look very well especially the new "Magnet Gun" Which looks out to be very impressive indeed  very interesting and I am somewhat excited about the upcoming release. Talking of destruction the Geometric destruction is one of the things that I think will skyboost this game to the Top.


Things I am certainly not amused with everything the new game has to offer.

Confined environment, when they thought of the underground idea I was really not amused I loved the Free world in Guerilla and i think they are stepping down, no pun intended.

Enemy types, I may possibly be blind, but the enemies look a lot like the enemies from Dead Space, I think many people will agree with me as this looks a lot like a rip off from Dead Space with slightly different guns and a more action packed game otherwise it looks very similar to the horror series and does not seem to have that strong trademark the older games had which is very disappointing for the fans.

These were really my main points, I dont think we have seen enough gameplay to make our final Verdict but we shall see how this will develop.

So than my Followers that actually enjoy the Blog tell me, Will Red Faction: Armageddon succeed or will the raitings be a Catastrophe? (Pun intended ;)

  7. Considering that I forgot that Red Faction even existed, that doesn't bode well for the games release. Or maybe I am just out of touch.

  10. Interesting game, is it sad I've never heard of it before? One thing I'd suggest is make sure to reread, sometimes it was a little hard to follow, but overall great and I love the layout of the site in general! :)

  16. I didn't like guerilla much, they'd have to do quite a bit to wow me after so many so-so titles.

  20. I used to play the hell out of the first one, but haven't cared for the franchise after that.

  22. I absolutely fell in love with the first Red Faction when it came out. After the first one the series lost my interest though.

  23. I don't like the new direction. Like you said, it's more a Dead Space than a Red Faction now.

    The first one was very special, but now the series just drifted into generic. I'll still play it though and I hope it's going to be enjoyable. At least the destructive environment looks sweet as ever.
