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.

Very fun action game with an ok story and rpg elements. The best part of the game is the destructible environment and large game map. Some of the missions are repetitious but enjoyable. Graphics hold up to the test of time. In fact this may be this best Red Faction game out of the entire series. Pick this one up if you've been itching to play a red faction game for the first time. Recommended for hours of fun.

Do you like grand theft auto?
Do you like space?


Its GTA liberty city in space pretty much. See a guy you dont like? Hit him with a sledgehammer and watch him fly. See a bridge and think well now thats just way to important i better leave it there..........then blow it up because you want to crash it down on some enemy vehicles.

Only thing i wish some buildings and things like the above mentioned bridge would spawn back after a time so you could blow it up again.

I've already bought 8 copies of the game for my friends. It is pure fun for LAN parties with its crazy multiplayer modes and THE SLEDGEHAMMER of course!

Singleplayer campaign is solid and rich. I didn't expect it at the first time played. AI adapts to destroyed walls, they can even crush a building occasionally to get you out. Lots of explosives and powerful vehicles create plenty of "omg wtf lol!" moments all the times. There is even a stealth system! And cover-sticking if you wish! And did i mention explosives? Remote charges, landmines, barrels, black-hole generators, rockets, HUGE ROCKETS... They all fit the game and it's fun to combine stuff.

Community support is nice to tears. You can download a load of mods and user-friendly mod manager (google for FactionFiles). In the winter of 2016 i thought that people squeezed every bit of modability and hackability from the game, but new modders and their work apperaed since then!

Multiplayer is beautifully crazy, but it is not easy to find people playing since the community is not that big. Someone made a steam bot "buddy" which can alert you when someone creates a game. Isn't it awesome?

I only wish that something will make developers release an SDK / map editor. However, even without that, there are A LOT of maps for multiplayer already in-game, a bunch of maps for demolition mode and a big world to explore in campaign. All of these destructible.

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.

Great mechanics and physics, you can blow up pretty everything using your hammer, rocket launcher, firing at gas tanks, etc. If you like blowing up things you should buy it.

It needs a bit of strategy, because you cant act "hit n run" (most of the time), if the guards realise you are there, they will throw up to you everything they have :P You must act guerilla style, think your way in, how you should attack the building and your way out alive.

The story is that you have gone to Mars as a miner, there you become a member of Red Faction, and you are fighting with others to liberate territories from the fascist EDF.

This piece of interactive entertainment tell us a story of marxist foundation while we take command of a hero that bears, like Achilles, an egregious weakness: this champion of demolition seens to have a hard time passing over debris more than 8 inches high. Nevertheless, I persevered with my exploration to verify what could be achieved with the handling of the myriad of armaments. Before long I observed that every structure could be... completely obliterated. I can hammer down, run through or explode everything to smithereens! To be able to destroy everything feels so... Oh, yeah!... F#CK YEAH!... I'M BLOWING SH*T UP!... Why is this building looking at me funny? TAKE THAT!... Oh! So this tower thinks it is so much taller than me, huh? NOT ANYMORE! MUAHAHAHA!... AH! ME DESTROYS ALL!... ME SMASH! SMASH! SMASH!!!

Grab the gameplay of the Saints Row series and add a little bit of Just Cause and you get Red Faction: Guerrilla, a really badass game about a freedom fighter destroying ENTIRE BUILDINGS with a Sledgehammer and a bit of explosives!

Feels almost like a classic GTA on Mars. Like any other "humans on Mars" games, the story might feel a bit odd, but the gameplay is ok and the minigames are not bad either. I can see why it didn't save the franchise while being the best game in the series, though.
