In the beggining of the review, ins't that the same shot of mars used in Saint's Row The Third. Makes sense since its the same developer and publisher.
This game was great. Sure, the characters have painful banter, they are underdeveloped, and the story is boring and generic, but f*** that combat was fantastic.
@UziRider3001. Point well made, alot of people buy into game series half way through the franchises lifespan and think they know the games. I would have to say though that both Guerilla AND Armageddon are both quite different to the original games, mostly for the fact that nowadays they have begun going with a third-person perspective as opposed to the original games with their FPS style. And although Geurilla was very different in that it was open world it did concentrate primarily on the political side of things and human enemies like the old games did whereas the primary focus on aliens in Armageddon is a new direction again. So all in all the series seems to be constantly reinventing itself since the 2nd game back on PS2. P.S Excellent game especially at the bargain price you can get it for now. The surprise hit of 2011 for me, I like it when games that aren't hyped to death shock me by how good they are when I get round to playing them.
i've played this game before, i really got addicted to it, it was just to pass my time but i got surprised , simple but better than many games with expectations
Just for the record there are so many cool gun to play this game with do note let gamespot fool you this game is great!
The only 2011 game i got, and i'm already loving it. The destruction content of this game is awesome.
i bought this game for 10 pounds brand new litterally 3 months after it's release. It is a great game, i would recommend it to anyone, I prefer it to the last one
I really like this game, and it is one of the most funny horde mode I do remember, it also run at 60 Frame per second, so sorry if there won't be another red faction game
Well i bought this game 3 days ago and i have not played it's predecessor ,but i can say that i'ts not a Bad game, the magnet gun it's fun and it becomes instantly your best friend because you run out of ammo really fast in the campaign(i´d play it in the hardest difficulty,the magnet gun has infinite ammo) ,but for some reason (for me of course) it's the kind of game that you don't want to play anymore after you complete the campaign (it's fun while it last, except in the final moments of the campaign where the bugs became a serious pain in the ass,you know, the kind of situation where your enemies respawn eternally and you get out of ammo and if you try to escape they chase you throughout the whole level,shooting at you,well you get the idea), there is a mode that seems like the horde from gears of war 2 called infestation, but killing bugs it's not as fun as killing locust.
@baza66 - Yes, a linear shooter in a series of linear shooters really feels out of place. You know, Guerrilla is NOT the only, nor first red faction. Armageddon actually goes back to it's roots and is much more Red Faction than guerrilla was.
I just beat the game on Monday. It was a solid campaign. Some parts did drag on too long and it isn't the best looking game. It was still a lot of fun, though. I am going to jump into Multiplayer tonight and see how that is. Seems like an easy Platinum, though! Great review. I love the New Game + feature. Why don't more games incorporate this?
I liked the game but it didn't feel like Red Faction. I did really like the open world concept of the last game better. Disappointed.
I never thought I could love a Third Person Shooter as much or even more than I love Gears. But this game came darn close.
@Egotte Yeah I felt the same thing about the IGN Infamous 2 review. The Red Faction Armageddon IGN review I felt it deserve that score cause in my opinion they should have made it a DLC instead of a full priced game. But then again Im more of a open world type gamer so Im a little sore about them taking it out... I was expecting them to build on the last game not to do something like this! If it was underground and open world I would love this game! But the destructible elements alone are not enough for me. Combine Armageddon and Guerrilla then u got yourself a awesome game!
@Egotte When I said mistakes I meant incorrect information. I don't have a problem with Gamespot cause they have other good reviewers other than these guys. And its not my opinion its the facts that I have gathered. I'm not crying about it I'm pointing out obvious mistakes that people like u don't understand. I don't know why your still saying Im mad cause they don't agree with me? Cause I told u before they made obvious mistakes that were incorrect. Can u even find the mistakes in the infamous 2 review?
@Egotte Sorry but I'm not one of those idiots who wants to hear that a game they like should get a good score... I found mistakes in both reviews on Gamespot and compared it with ign and came to a conclusion. And there r mistakes in the score in this case cause they both games had a predecessor which would be what they would use to compare them. Which was not done in ether case. Also they used more of there own feelings instead of actual information.
@Egotte Yeah cause in the infamous 2 review the guy made obvious mistakes and it seem like he didn't even like the game before he played it. Where in this review they tells us it gets a 8 cause of a stupid gun? this review is pretty much tell us a game that has less than the first is better? But the infamous 2 review is telling us that it has more than the first but is worst than it? The reason were comparing the two is because the scores don't make sense cause they should be the other way around. IGN got it right at least... RFA got a 7 and Infamous 2 got a 9.
w00t!!! just got this, inFamous 2, SUPER SFIV's Upgrade to SUPER SFIV Arcade Edition and Hunted: Demon's Forge! :p Time to KICK SOME @$$!!! :D I LOVE this game so far... RF: Armageddon OWNS! Now, I just can't wait for Tuesday's release of Duke Nukem Forever (also pre-ordered by me)!!!! ^^
ffs... i click on this game review and once its over it plays an unrelated video. um... i didn't ask for that. wtf.
What?unicorns?shooting lasers out of their butts?and the trigger is where i am thinknig it is?this is gonna be game of the century!
I think this time Chris did not have much to say about this game, It was all summed up in the first half of the review
Yeah, I played the demo for this and loved it. This should be a 9. I didn't want it to stop. Then I played the inFamous 2 demo and was bored so I didn't finish it. Sane reaction I had to the demo of the first game. I guess Im more of a Protitype person because I love it.
@ironmonk36 - So because this game recieved an 8 you believe inFamous deserves a 9? That is just illogical. Why do people hold on to this belief that because game 'A' was scored such that game 'B' automatically deserves to score better?
I downloaded the demo of this earlier. It is pretty cool. I kept seeing the RF:Armageddon demo on Live but never got round to trying it. I'm glad I tried this though. It reminds me a lot of Gears of War at first glance. I love how everything is destructable then fixable :). My original Xbox's graphics card fried during gameplay on Gears of War 2 so I'm apprehensive about playing that :D. So the fact this has a similar style is great. Definitely up there on my buy list.
@Double_Wide Genius. That's what it is. We don't need too much spoiler IMO.
