Red Faction II is a first-person shooter by Volition. It is the second part of the same-named tetralogy. The games of the series are traditionally divided into the categories by the genre. Red Faction II corresponds to the first section which includes the first-person shooter gameplay.
The game takes place straight after the first chapter. The setting is the same — Mars in 2080, five years later than the events of the previous part. The story circles around the narrative of the rebellions on Mars, caused by the dictatorship of Sopot who rules the Mars for the past few years. Sopot follows a logic of uniting the Commonwealth community and the United Republic. The player is representing Alias — the protagonist must put an end to his dictatorship alongside with the other five team members.
As the player proceeds through the levels the encounter obstacles which they may overcome in many ways: explosives, shooting and even puzzle elements included. The game also features vehicle and melee combat — your jeep may be modified and melee weapons acquired through the boss battles. Every battle differentiates from the previous one and grants the players the unique loot.
