Don’t miss the video for the catchy, game-explaining RF:G sandbox ballad ‘Space Asshole’!

Zero Punctuation Review

Nhex: The best game in the world would be mixing the destructo enviro of this with GTAIV.

Proceduralizing Terror?

Accidental Symbolism in RF:G

Jjjusten: Tons and tons of fun for about the first four hours and then it gets really hard to give a shit anymore. Driving kind of sucks, third person combat kind of sucks, lots and lots and lots of sand to look at. Honestly, this and Prototype were vying for one of my last place spots, but I give the nod to Red Faction because of the building demolition, which is a funtime throwback to crash mode on whichever Burnout that was. Unfortunately, there is a meandering game surrounding the smash-it-up that you have to muddle through, but when you get there it is pretty great.

GM: I enjoyed Red Faction: Guerrilla over either Prototype or Infamous myself. Hammering a radio tower into oblivion on Mars may not be as purely awesome as elbow-dropping a tank from the top of the Empire State building, but at least you don’t have to sit through increasingly humorless cartoons every ten minutes.
