spacedandie's Red Faction: Guerrilla (PlayStation 3) review

A refreshing but short lived take on the Red Faction franchise

I've been a fan of Red Faction ever since I blasted my first tunnel into a wall in the first game. Whenever I think of innovation in destructible environments, I think of Red Faction.

The game's story and characters are forgettable and Mars is not an attractive enviornment although they did keep it a tad fresh with the slight differences in the zones of the game.

The destruction is awesome but it just wasn't enough to keep me going.
