About This Game


Set 50 years after the climactic events of the original Red Faction, Red Faction: Guerrilla allows players to take the role of an insurgent fighter with the newly re-established Red Faction movement as they battle for liberation from the oppressive Earth Defense Force. Red Faction: Guerrilla re-defines the limits of destruction-based game-play with a huge open-world, fast-paced guerrilla-style combat, and true physics-based destruction.

Key features


  • Open World Guerrilla Warfare — You decide who, when, where and how to battle. Utilize guerrilla tactics, improvised weaponry, and modified vehicles to lead insurgent attacks on EDF targets. Launch attacks based on your own gameplay style, take on missions in any order you choose, or engage in destructive activities to weaken the EDF's grip on Mars.
  • Strategic Destruction — Use destruction to your tactical advantage, setting ambushes or chain reaction explosions to attack enemy strongholds and permanently modify the game environment. Leverage fully-dynamic physics-based destruction to improvise on the fly: blow holes in a wall or floor to set an ambush or escape, take out a staircase to stop your pursuers, or drive vehicles through blown out walls.
  • Evolving & Emergent Gameplay — Carve your path through an ever changing landscape as you improvise your combat tactics - mixing gameplay styles, vehicles, weapons and explosives to defeat the EDF.
  • Epic Sci-Fi Setting — Explore the huge, unforgiving Martian landscape, from the desolate mining outpost of Parker to the gleaming EDF capital city of Eos; then tear through the fully destructible open-world environments swarming with EDF forces, Red Faction resistance fighters, and the downtrodden settlers caught in the cross-fire.
  • Multiplayer Combat — There is no place to hide when you put your guerrilla warfare skills to the test in a variety of highly destructive multiplayer combat modes.

Red Faction: Gorilla has a story comparable to what you might expect from a pornographic film. The rich lore is both deep and satisfying, thrust at you from any number of angles.
Can you find the gushing waters of Mars, and save your daughter from the aliens? Not in this game.

3 thumbs up.

Overall a good game but has quite a few flaws.

Good things about this game:
-Destruction, almost everything is destructible
-Cool weapons (nano rifle, grinder, rail driver etc...)
-Good difficulty scale: easy=sandbox mode, hard=guerilla mode
-Some fun challenges and "High Importance Targets" to destroy

The bad:
-Salvage, the in game currency. As one of the characters puts it, you can never have too much of it, unfortunately it takes forever to accumulate enough of it to research new things
-Many weapons in game but you can only carry a hammer +3 weapons, on top of that only 5 are really worth using
-Ammo sucks (forces you to hit and run but why can the character only carry 120 rifle ammo while you can carry 30 charges?)
-Story is shallow and characters are not interesting
-Specific side missions can be tedious and boring to complete
-Last mission is boring and hard

I've known the game Red Faction Guerrilla for about 4 years now. I first got it on my Xbox 360 and thought it was amazing. You can do whatever you want. Destroy buildings, crash cars, kill innocent or enemies, jump into pits of doom.... but it's not really all about that. It's about the creatitvity the developers put in the game. The weapons are amazing, the story line is good and the bunches of days/months or even years they put into making the whole world in this game is amazing. It's cool to watch the NPCs react in the game, they'll help you out in very tough situations and lead you to victory. They are a HUGE part in the game. Anyway, great game, great plot, great characters. 10/10 would play again.

Red Faction Guerilla Steam Edition is a great open-world game that excels at destruction.

You play as Alec Mason, an Earth-born miner that comes to Mars looking for a job. Soon after your arrival, you get involved in a guerilla war against the oppressing force - Earth Defense Force. Your mission is to weaken EDF's control over different regions by destroying key buildings and completing optional tasks. Once you lower the control over a region, 3-4 story missions unlock for every region, so there is a little grinding involved for progression. Bring EDF's control to 0 in a region and you can take it over.

The gameplay is focused on destruction, as it should be because this game uses a very nice physics engine. There are a lot of tools to blow things up: items in the environment, mines, placeable detonators, rocket launcher, etc. You even get rewarded with scrap (game currency) for bringing down structures and making stuff go boom. There are also regular guns such as a pistol and assault riffle, but these are less fun to use. Later in the game you will have access to better guns and gadgets, but you will need a big amount of scrap if you want to unlock everything. My favourite combination was sniping with the nano-rifle from mid-air (using jetpack).

I didn't play Red Faction Guerilla in its original itteration, but from the information available it looks like the developers cared enough for the game to improve a lot and re-release it in a better state.

If you like open-world games such as Saints Row, Just Cause or Max Mad then it is a must-play. If not, I would still recommend to give this one a try. You will have a blast, I promise.

Really nice sandbox game, imagine GTA but your on Mars , every building can be destroyed with awesome destructo physics , and you can ride a mech ,BAM instant classic , this is a must play simply for how fun it is to screw around and as far as story goes, it has a fulfilling ending but all the missions leading to it is quite samey, but then again that's pretty much how it is in GTA as well , so if you like GTA you should definitely try this game :) 3.5/5 !

A nice, open world shooter with great physics...Wew
The game has a good story as far as I got, a nice system to make the player feel his progress in it, allows you to ♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ up left and right. What more can you ask of a game?
Maybe a sale :P I got this on one but perhaps I'm just being cheap this could be worth it. Well done game, haven't had bugs so far, and it's been quite fun.

One of the best video games that combines an open world and destruction. "Demolition" is a better word in it's case. It is by far the best game in the Red Faction series and I highly recommend it.

Solid single player campaign and the geo mod feature grants one of the most entertaining and varied multiplayer experience out there. Online players are few, but some are active in trying to keep the community alive.

If you like video games that let you destroy things, you should buy red faction guerrilla. It is one of a handful of games that allow mostly realistic destruction. Do you want to take out some enemies by bringing the building they're in crashing down on their heads? You can do that. Just be careful not to bring it down on yourself too.
