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.

Never liked it when it came out and for the life of me I do not know why. It's your standard sandbox game. Few main missions, few more side missions, and a butt ton of collectables. The side missions aren't a drag here though as in most of them your just blowing stuff up which is always a win in my book. The collectables aren't important it's just more salvage and you can get that from anything so it's not essential you run around and get all 500 of them which is also a win. It's just a fun blow everything up game. The only downsides is that pretty much every gun for killing people is pretty much useless, I found myself brutally beating people to death with the hammer most of the time. That and the story, or lack there of. All the missions are just a little video briefing, there's very few actual cutscenes so most of the time it doesn't feel like there's actually anything going on. But you get to drive a big mech thingy through stuff and demolish everything in sight and live out that God complex you've got going on so it's all good... You only get to do that once though.

Do you enjoy spending your hours building structures and staring in awe at what you have created? Well this game is the exact opposite of that and will still make you stare in awe as it all falls apart. The only weapon you need is the sledgehammer and a whole lot of brute force.

Cool game regarding the price. Too bad is it so repetitive... and that the story is like inexistant. Expect 10 hours, one play every 3-5 years.

At the beginning of the game, Alec (Our protagonist) says this:

"I'M NOT A TERRORIST!"

Alec then proceded to blow up every structure on planet Mars.

11/10 Would destroy everything again.

Outstanding arena-esque multiplayer portion that is comical and also somewhat competitive, taking a bit of skill and strategy to be victorious. Destruction really adds something dynamically that no other games have. The multiplayer is very much overlooked.

Red Faction Guerrilla is good for what it is, but it is starting to show its age.

The building destruction mechanics are awesome, and there still aren't really any games that compare to how satisfying and detailed the destruction of buildings is. Sadly, the insides of buildings feel very lifeless compared to the sculpted mountains and hills of Mars. Add the fact that you can raze the entire building with a mis-click, it adds to the lifelessness of buildings, and the world feels somewhat better without them. 90% of the buildings don't ever respawn, which means once you enjoy the destruction of everything on Mars once, you won't be able to do it again on the same save file. Also, having good building destruction kind of pales in comparison to the terrain deformation from the original Red Faction, and it is a shame that they couldn't somehow implement that as well.

The combat is the usual stale third person shooter type, similar to Watchdogs. The melee with things like hammers is pretty satisfying against enemies, though it is very risky on harder difficulties since enemies will take out half of your health with great accuracy while running up to them. The driving is OK, a little stiff, but solid. Smashing a truck through an outpost is great, and really highlights the great destruction engine.

The graphics are fast becoming very dated. The cutscenes look almost like something from a PS2 game, the human models look kind of chunky, like action figures, and I don't know if it's just me but the sound files for voice acting sound really compressed and garbage sounding, as if they were from a game from 2002. Mars looks fine, it looks like Mars.

The game is pretty unbalanced on the hard difficulty. Enemies empty magazines into you with very little inaccuracy, and because the health regeneration takes such a long time to begin, the sheer amount of enemies that start chasing you will kill you. The enemies also take a huge amount of damage. It helps make the EDF feel more like armoured bad guys, but it's very annoying using all of your ammo on only 3 normal bad guys, especially when there are 12 more around the corner. The sheer randomness of the physics system also takes part in causing much frustration. Sometimes getting hit in the head with a fallen turbine blade will only give you some damage and won't knock you down. Sometimes a stray hand-railing will knock you down, take out a quarter of your health, and pin you under a nearby walkway making you a sitting duck for enemy soldiers while you wait for the standing up animation to happen. I don't know what a remedy could be for something like this, because it makes sense to die from a bulding landing on your head. But sometimes the physics are just too random.

Overall, the game is good. It's just kind of showing it's age with some other problems from the time. If you are in the mood for games like GTA, Watchdogs, or other third-person drivey-shooty games, then this game will fit the bill with some added cathartic destruction.

For people who want to destroy expensive things, but don't have the money for it.
420/420 best (and pretty much only) pure destruction mechanics of 2016.

Great game for a bit of mindless open world destruction. 7 years later and no game can match this level of destruction. The game has also been updated, fixing bugs and removing the awful Games For Windows Live.
