About this game
Developer: Volition Inc.
Content Rating: Mature
Set 50 years after the climactic events of the original red faction, red faction: guerrilla allows players to take the role of an insurgent Fighter with the newly re-established red faction movement as they battle for liberation from the oppressive Earth defense force. Red faction: guerrilla still defines the limits of destruction-based game-play with a huge open-world, fast-paced guerrilla-style combat, and true physics-based destruction.

Red Faction: Guerrilla's central mechanics of destruction are a blast, but in the nine years since the game's original launch, we've played a lot of much better games. What was perfectly acceptable by our standards back in 2009 just doesn't cut it anymore, and as a result, Guerrilla is plagued by a number of major issues. Unfortunately, thanks to a bevy of technical issues, it doesn't even succeed as a remaster.
I just wish all the performance issues were resolved before shipping. In all good faith, I can’t recommend you rush out and grab this immediately with how shoddy the performance can be. It would be one thing to deal with a crummy framerate, but having the game crash as often as it did is no good. I want to destroy buildings, not sit through boring-ass dialogue, have my game crash and then sit through that chatter again.
It’s been over seven years since we’ve seen an entry in the Red Faction series. The fact that they can live on is nothing short of a miracle. After all that THQ has been through over the past few years it’s nice to know that they still have love for this franchise. With this release it’s safe to say that if it does well enough a potential sequel could be on the way to follow up 2011’s Armageddon.
