Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered review

T'was 2009 that Red Faction Guerrilla first appeared, an astoundingly ballsy and destructive Martian open world game before everything was open world games. And goodness gracious, it was fantastic. You played as a freedom fighter for the Red Faction, rebelling against the terrible authoritarian energy company EDF, who control the populations of Mars. And your tasks primarily involve knocking things over.

Red Faction: Guerilla’s Space Asshole returns on July 3rd

Mars's calendar is objectively superior to ours. For starters, their Independence Day comes one day sooner than America's, and trades up the fireworks for driving giant mining robots through buildings. At least, that's what I'm drawing from the pun-ishingly named Red Faction: Guerilla Re-Mars-tered's new release date trailer. This polished-up version of Volition's space demolition sandbox is due out on July 3rd, and they've even gone and…

Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered smashing out soon

I'll never forget that magical summer of 2009 when everyone went around smashing buildings to pieces with an ostrich-shaped hammer. Well, the noughties are back in fashion, baby, and Red Faction Guerrilla is back too. Volition's smashtastic shooter is being snazzed up a little for a re-release as the new Re-Mars-tered edition, publishers THQ Nordic announced today. They put the hyphens there to highlight the…

2017 Steam Award winners include PUBG, Cuphead & Witcher

We've already seen which games sold best on Steam last year, but a perhaps more meaningful insight into movin' and a-shakin' in PC-land is the games that people feel warmest and snuggliest about. To that end, Valve have announced the winners of the 2017 Steam Awards, a fully community-voted affair which names the most-loved games across categories including best post-launch support, most player agency, exceeding…

Red Faction: Guerilla’s destructible scenery makes it still worth playing today

Two hostages. One building. Five government guards with reinforcements waiting in the wings. In most games, I'd try to sneak in with a silenced rifle, methodically popping enemies in the head one-by-one. But in Red Faction: Guerrilla, I don't even have a gun in my inventory, let alone a silenced one. What I have instead are explosives. Lots of explosives. I rig five charges at…

Feature: 21 Of The Best 7/10 Games

In Celebration Of Perfectly Average Action Games

We don’t do scores on RPS, but sometimes we mourn for the inability to deploy a 7/10. The ur-score, the most double-edged of critical swords, the good but not great, the better than it deserves to be, the guilty pleasure, the bungled aspiration, the knows exactly what it is, the straight down the line. One score that can mean so much. There is one particular…

Have You Played… Red Faction: Armageddon?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.The game that killed the franchise. Red Faction: Armageddon was Volition's only real failure, a sequel to the stunning Red Faction: Guerilla, but one that failed to pick up nearly enough sales. THQ ditched it, and then moments later went under, the rights passing…

Unsmashy: Red Faction Guerrilla Patching Continues

Red Faction Guerrilla is a cracking game for rolling around as a giant space asshole, smashing every building to the ground and giggling at its destruct-o-physics. But what then? What when everything is smashed and only you remain standing? You can't smash yourself, Hammerman.Why, you rebuild it so you can start smashing all over again! Something I did not know RFG has, because it was…

Have You Played… Red Faction: Guerrilla?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.There was a point back in 2009 when I became obsessed with Red Faction: Guerrilla. I've always liked destructible scenery in shooty, 'splodey games and Guerrilla looked like it might change the landscape of action gaming forever. No more would we tolerate canned collapses…

Red Faction Guerilla Rebels Against GFWL & DX10

Games For Windows Live? No mate, come on, that's a fairy tale. Just something people made up to scare kids. This 'orrible bogeyman that made all your videogames malfunction and constantly scream at you to login, yeah? No such thing, mate, no such thing. I mean, look around you, look at all these games that they used to say it hid in. Dawn of War…

Mining My Own Business: Space Asshole

Griefing in a single player game may seem slightly self-defeating, but in a game like Red Faction: Guerilla it's just so incredibly tempting. A game that makes everything but the ground itself destructible and then gives you a giant hammer is asking for trouble - when you realise you can smash up your own bases, including their inhabitants, it becomes a battle with your own…

Red Faction PC: Release Trailer

The first mission in Red Faction: Guerrilla is to destroy a building with a super-powered sledgehammer, and it just sort of gets better from there. The PC version is out this week, and will include the DLC released for the console versions for free. If you want to wait for a detailed verdict on the game then we'll have one for you next week, but…

Red Faction: Guerilla Vehicle Trailers

The swollen internet marketing thorax of THQ has disgorged another pair of Red Faction trailers for you to crack open with a click, and then discuss, as medieval crones might have discussed the entrails of a chicken. Does the chunky scenery speak prophecy of a genuinely destructible world? Does the game footage of much shootiness tell of glad tidings, or bad? It's hard to be…

Martian Dreams: Red Faction: Guerrilla Impressions

Sitting down to play an early version of Red Faction on an almost-sunny London day, I do get a moment's cognitive dissonance when I think of myself here, at a corporate event, playing a multi-million dollar product of capitalism designed to simulate the thrill of armed insurrection, when I could just head across town and get involved in the real thing. Except if I did…

If I Had A Hammer: Red Faction Destruction Tech

“We’re ahead of everybody by five to ten years in terms of destruction,” Red Faction Guerilla lead designer James Hague tells Eurogamer. "...we wanted to go toward fully-dynamic for everything. It’s a very different technical direction from where other people are going.” Judging by the insane super-hammer trailer that Volition have just released, he might just be right. I've been quietly sceptical about this, and…

Red Faction Guerrilla Footage

Destructo-scenery specialists Volition have been talking about their new game, the third Red Faction title, including an explanation of their reasons for pulling the camera into third-person. Apparently it makes seeing all that destruction a little more satisfying. What we know so far is that it's going to be an "open-world shooter" set on Mars, so there's a little less linearity to your smashing of…
