I loved the first Red Faction. The split screen multiplayer with bots was a lot of fun. The ability to demolish walls with your guns was amazing back then.

The 1st red faction was by far the best IMO, they just got progressively worse after that.

Red Faction 1 and 2 were amazing. The other two sucked.

No two was awful. Three let you run a car with a bomb stuck to it into a tower and knock it down when you detonated it. Therefore it was great. Armageddon was mediocre.

Two had a brilliant story, characters and gameplay.

Sure number two had destruction, But the story sucked, Game play sucked and the graphics sucked. Therefore it sucked.

1. Red faction 2: 9
2. Red Faction : 9
3. Red Faction Guerrilla : 5
4. Red Faction Armageddon: 3

I loved Guerilla, amazing open world. Haven't played the originals though. However, I have played Armageddon, and what a letdown!

You really need to play it, i picked it up a couple months ago and i love it. I mean even the controls are decent for a ps2 game, most fps games on ps2 drive me nuts. Just a word of advice save pretty often if i recall if you die you have to go all the way to your last save point. I learned that the hard way O.o

Definitely enjoyed the first game for Xbox 360/PS3. Open world sandbox on Mars? Destructible environments? Had a ball.
