Red Faction Armageddon


Game Summary

Half a century after the Red Faction resistance and their Marauder allies freed Mars from the brutal Earth Defense Force, harmony on Mars is again threatened but this time by a lethal force shrouded in mystery. 

When the massive Terraformer that supplies Mars with its Earth-like air and weather is destroyed, the atmosphere turns to chaos, super-tornados and lightning storms engulf the planet. To survive, the Colonists flee to the underground mines and build a network of habitable caves. 
Five years later, Darius Mason, grandson of Martian Revolution heroes Alec Mason and Samanya, runs a lucrative business from Bastion, underground hub of Colonist activity. Mining, scavenging, mercenary work--if the job is dangerous, Darius is your man. Few sane people now venture to the ravaged surface, aside from contractors like Darius and the smugglers who run goods between the settlements. 

When Darius is tricked into reopening a mysterious shaft in an old Marauder temple, he releases a long-dormant evil and unleashes Armageddon on Mars. As Colonist and Marauder settlements are torn asunder, only Darius and the Red Faction can save mankind. The battle will take them across the storm-blasted planet--and below it, to the very heart of the unspeakable threat. 
Red Faction®: Armageddon™ expands on the critically acclaimed, best-selling franchise with new, groundbreaking challenges. You are humanity’s last hope for survival.

Review This Game


I enjoyed this game (Mainly because I played it before the others) but if you want to play all the Red Faction games play this first so the salt bread effect will come into play (consume something mediocre first so the better thing will seem even better) but if you are a returning player and have played the other 3 games, it's highly likely you'll be disappointed.


This is a fun game, but it's more enjoyable to destroy the highly interactive environments than it is to play the actual game. T...his entry in the series is certainly not the best, but it has very good visuals and the same depth of destruction. The story is okay. The game isn't open world like the previous game in the franchise. Game is worth buying on sale and is fun while it lasts, but it won't keep you coming back for multiple playthroughs.


While this game has earned a negative reputation, it's actually not bad; most who hated it expected another open-world game like... Guerrilla, despite the fact that Red Faction started as a linear FPS. This game isn't bad; it's just... Okay. The real appeal isn't the main campaign, but the pure carnage and destruction you can cause, which has its own game mode. Pick it up on discount or in a bundle, and don't expect the campaign to be amazing.
