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…

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…

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…
