Along with Halo and the original Medal of Honor games, 2001's Red Faction was one of the first first-person shooters to show that the genre could work on consoles. Unfortunately, that game's disappointing sequel, 2002's Red Faction II, showed that not all do, and that some don't work on a PC, either. Now the series is making a comeback of sorts with Red Faction: Guerilla, which THQ will release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC at some point in the next year.
The operative phrase here is "of sorts" because, unlike its predecessors, Guerilla isn't a first-person shooter. Though, according to Producer Rick White, fans of the series shouldn't knock it until they try it.
