The original Red Faction was amazingly graphicly, had great playability and at the time was the best first person shooter i had ever played. So there was a lot to live up to and a lot of people to please even more with this second offering however in my opinion it failed rather dramatically...

*A review which is primarily based on the single-player experience of the FPS, Red Faction II.* The nanotechnology created by Capek on Mars had been brought to Earth where it would again be stolen. And then stolen again and again. But Alias would take the technology for the Republic of the...

“Red faction 2”

published 27/03/2003

Immersive and fast paced gameplay

Far too short

Red faction 2, was it what we wanted? Well it certainly wasn’t what we expected. We were all looking forward to another groundbreaking plot from volition. That, however, is not what we got. Instead, we got a poorly put together and very predictable storyline. The gameplay is top notch and...

“Great all round game”

More weps

Less "Blow up" walls

To start off i have the 1st red faction and thought it was a great buy, so when i saw red faction 2 out in the shops i had to go and buy it. The red faction games have it better then other "shoot em ups" due to the Geo mod technology used. This is where the game is made so most any enviroment can...

Not for me

Bot match

Everything else

All in all, this is quite a terrible game. Red faction 1 was actually fun, and captured the futuristic war feel pretty damn well. This game, however, fails in every one of those areas, and more. Let me explain. First, let's take the gameplay. I rate this a 4/10 because with better weapons the...

“Short but sweet”

New bigger guns, exceptional multiplayer.

More levels please!!

I think that this was a wasted opportunity. RF1 was certainly one of the best 1st person shoot-em-ups around at the time, and I had high expectations for RF2. The trouble is that with lots of other strong contenders in the genre like 007 Nightfire and Quake, I think that the manufacturers were...

controls take a while to get used to

This is a good first person shooter. There are three difficulty levels, three possible endings, a huge range of weapons, and lots of unlockables. The best part of the game has to be the destructible scenery. neraly all the levels can be destroyed using all manner of grenades and explosives. You...

“THE RED FACTION2”

published 25/10/2004

good graphics

low price

The first-person shooter genre has been dormant for most of the last year on PlayStation 2, after a brief flurry of effort in the eight months or so following the release of the system. Some wags would say that this was a good idea, given the hit-to-miss ratio in early PS2 FPS games -- none of...

shoot game

non

This was one of the first games I got with my PS2...and I used to play it solidly. Some of the weapons are amazing, some can splatter an enemy into oblivion with one little tap on the controller. But even with a pistol you still can't stop playing...the attention to detail is excellent, for...
