Andrew Weymes of The Nightly Gamer writes: "The previous entries in the Red Faction series have been linear first person shooters, so it's no surprise that fans of the series were a little worried when they heard that the latest entry entitled Red Faction Guerrilla was going to be in third person. Not only has the series made the transition from first person to third person but it has also gone from being a linear adventure to an open world adventure. While the open world genre has been around long before the release of Grand Theft Auto III, no one can deny that its release ignited the open world genre. It seems like you can't turn around without seeing another open world release. 2009 has already seen the very disappointing release of The Godfather II but games like Infamous and Prototype look intriguing to say the least. The Red Faction Guerrilla demo has been available on Xbox Live for a few nights and just saw a PSN release within the last three nights. Regardless of which platform you play it on, the developers of this game seem to have the right idea. An open world game without a world that you want to explore, destroy or both is a failure and you will assuredly want to cause as much destruction as possible in this demo until the games June release date."
