If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Welcome to Mars. The red planet, named after the god of war himself. Will it ever know peace? Its time to find out, this is Red Faction Armegeddon for X-Box 360.
It's time to leave the open free surrfice of Mars and head back to the confineing clostrophobic soul crushing mines that this franchise was born in. This time around the game dessigners decided to do away with free roam, and make this entry linear. I for one enjoyed the heck out of Gurilla. This is a nice change though, you play as a decendent of Alec named Darius Mason. The reson Darius and all of martin kind are liveing in the deep underground is because years earlier a mission on the surface went south and a terrorist atack suceeded in destroying the terriformers. Gone are the fields of Oasis, now returned to the windswept wasteland that the surface once was. This is where the game starts, more or less. Good right? I agree lets move on.
home is where the hammer is
The graphics in this game are better then Gurilla but not by much. It keeps the same play style. Third person shooter, d-pad selecting weapons with all the good and bad that intales. This time around however you have a new and emproved Nano-Forge. Now when you "accidently" blow up that persons house you can fix it if you so wish. Or if you blow up a bridge you need in the heat of combat no worries now. The aiming still seems a bit meh to me. I dont know why but I had the same problum in Gurilla. I cant help but compare this to its predisessor because it is so very similur. It feels less like a sequil but an add on. A really good add on mind you but an add on none the less.
nano forge do your stuff!
Your enemys this time around arnt some para military organization. But rather bug like monsters that look a little familure. They seem to be bigger badder versions of the monsters you fought in the very first Red Faction game all those years ago. This explains why they where there in the first place and why they wernt in Gurilla. I like it, it changes things up and expands on the mythos. As all good sequals SHOULD DO. Im looking at you HALO (gunna get hate mail for that)
