About

The series of video games, known for the destructiveness of virtual environments. The action takes place at the end of the 21st century. Humanity has colonized Mars and now is extracting minerals that are no longer available on Earth. The player takes control over the miner who goes by the name Parker, and who helps rebel forces with the uprising against the evil Ultor Corporation. The latter is entirely out of hand and violates the fundamental human rights: does not provide workers food and medicine and treats miners as slaves.

The main game mechanics is the GeoMod technology, which allows players to extensively change the virtual environment. For example, with the help of explosives or other improvised instruments. Unavailable earlier freedom of action allowы players to complete levels non-linearly, and change them beyond recognition. The version for the PC included an additional level of Glass House, in which GeoMod's capabilities could be used in full, and a multiplayer with 25 maps.

Red Faction reviews and comments

Translated by

The Tutorial seemed fine, I think the Game itself is probably still halfway playable today. But Since after 20 Minutes the first Total Failure was imminent and this left a processless Permanent tone In the System (until Restart), it sticks with it for me. What a pity.

One of the best Retrogames on the Market. Did it for Playstation 2 at the Time and was just thrilled, thanks to the Geo-Mod Technology it was also possible to destroy almost everything in the Environment in Red Faction. Negative I can't say anything about this Game because you can't compare it to today's Games. The Graphics are certainly not the best, but by the Time They were simply the best.

I basically like Stories about Mars. I have always been fascinated by our neighbouring Planet. That's why I accessed "Red Faction." First, to the Craft. Unfortunately, the Graphics are already very much in the Years. You should also have a Taste for red-brown Colours. Except for the few Sections with Buildings, Spaceships and stations, one moves below or on the Surface of Mars. And that's just reddish brown, The Textures are mushy, the Animations wooden and the Design relatively unimaginative. In addition, without Tricks, you only get a Resolution of 1280x1024 Pixels. Even the Number of Opponents is absolutely manageable and something like a Boss Opponent can only be seen in the Game three Times. The Music is not very stirring, it is also used selectively, which often makes you fight in Silence in front of you. The Sounds don't rip you off the Chair either. Standard Ware. Bugs I didn't spot any. But You should be careful to save regularly (no Quicksafe). Once I got into a Situation where I had to flee in just a few Seconds, had only 9% Life and 4 Opponents got in the Way. Unfortunately, I saved by Quicksafe just before, which meant that I couldn't finish this Event alive. The Restart Option does not mean to restart the Level, but the complete Game!! Autosafe does not exist. A Car, by the way, doesn't. And now to the actual Reason of my Purchase. The Story. Unfortunately, I was completely disappointed with the Story. I find she's very predictable, the Characters are pale and you barely Get any Reasons about her. In Fact, there is nothing newsworthy about it. No WOW effect, no Twist, no Overuse, no Mystery. Even for an older Game, that's too little. The FPS rarely focus on the Story, I am already aware, but quite honestly-we all know that it is better. Unfortunately, there is no Recommendation from me. Let's see what Part 2 has to offer.
