Synopsis


It has been more than 50 years since the Red Faction resistance and the Marauder allies liberated the Red Planet from the brutal Earth Defense Force — however, that harmony is once again threatened. A massive Terraformer that supplies Mars with its Earth-like air and water has been destroyed, causing the once-balanced atmosphere to transform to chaos. The Colonists have been forced to flee underground and begin their lives beneath the surface. Darius Mason, the grandson of Martian Revolution heroes Alec Mason and Samanya, runs a dangerous, yet lucrative business carrying out jobs that others fear to do. When Darius is tricked into entering an old Marauder temple, he reopens a mysterious shaft — releasing a long-sleeping evil that unleashes Armageddon across Mars. Only Darius and the Red Faction can protect the Colonist and Marauder settlements and save mankind from the evil that envelops the Red Planet.

Red Faction: Armageddon places you in the role of Darius Mason, a man born of Colonist and Marauder blood, who must save mankind from an unspeakable evil that has resurfaced. In the latest installment in the Red Faction franchise, you must travel across the storm-blasted Red Planet — and below the surface as you take up arms against a terrifying new force that threatens the sake of mankind. Will you be able to uphold your family's tradition of fighting for the freedom of Mars to protect the settlements against this mysterious lethal force?

    i bought this game cuz i fell in love with the red faction guerilla game... i loved destroying everything with the hammer and just free roaming the world choosing the missions and doing what i wanted... well this game is nothing like that... the storyline was straight out of halo... ur set against ur enemy but o wait not this new enemy that is leeching onto everything to feed is now trying to destroy everything and u need to stop both... the creatures were out of halo and world of warcraft... the game was not free roaming and u had to follow a strict storyline... i almost never needed my hammer and never even had it equipped after the beginning which was highly dissappointing... there were some new weapons that were fun but other then that it was just a let down... overall the game was decent but for red faction it was just a let down and i wish i had never bought it... if u want to buy it because u loved guerrilla then is it not the game for u

    Looks good, but way too boring and linear

    A disappointing follow-up to the much superior Red Faction: Guerilla. The game looks nice and the weapon variety is solid (love the Magnet gun), but almost everything else is weak. Poor story, far too linear. Progressing through the game felt more like a chore than anything. You're better off playing Guerilla and avoiding Armageddon.

    As a follow-up to Guerrilla, this was a big disappointment as it has the same destructive elements and physics-based game design, but confines that in tight corridors and areas where it's more of a nuisance than it is enjoyable.

    If the single player and multiplayer is half as good as in red faction guerilla this game will be amazing. It is complete with stunning visuals and fast paced gameplay makes it one of the top games on the market.

    Its just repetitive. poor story line and only killing creatures just for killing them doesnt make any sense. I hoped this was as good as resistance, but it disappointed.

    Solid story mode, Nice variety of Modes but it did lack in map choice for ruin mode. I also did miss the availability to free roam in previous Red Faction's.
