Feature: Just to watch the world burn

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…

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…

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…
