Red Faction: Armageddon - Xbox 360 Review by Brash Games

After playing the game I can agree with the score. There is a lot of fun that can be had with this game although it's dragged down by a few things- namely the story and redundancy of the campaign. The story is horribly cliche and couldn't be more ridiculous. It makes absolutely little sense and could have been penned by a 10 year old. This leads to a game in which the player cares little about the protagonist and any immersion is lost. Games need better story telling and this game is case in point. The campaign overall was too long given the lack of variety in mission structure and gameplay elements. Overall the game is worth a playthrough although I wouldn't expect you'll want to play it a second time.
