Maybe if they kept it open world it would have done better...
agreed never change a winning concept
The game looked like crap and played like crap. At least Red Faction: Guerrilla was fun. The story, which they seem to place the greatest focus on was just rubbish.
Now that they have officially run The Red Faction franchise into the ground. How about THQ go back and start over by remaking Red Faction 1 into a HD remake then start making proper sequels to the game that made me buy a PS2 in the first place.
Why did they make it a linear Third-Person shooter?
So that they can ruin the franchise, what other reason would THQ have?
Demo was awful - a shame because guerrilla was actually pretty good.
the demo was terrible i played both demos when they came out and the last game was so much better. Armageddon gave me a headache it was so bad just awful.
Shocking! THQ's strategy= take away everything that made the last game popular, then wonder why nobody likes the new one.
I know!! First Supreme Commander 2, then Dungeon Siege 3, now this. Whoever is in charge over there needs to be replaced with the old guy. And quick.
Dungeon Siege 3 was Square-Enix / Eidos.
didn't buy it...I would have if it was open world....
nobody even rents this game at redbox, it's always there, for both systems even wii 90 games party pack gets rented more...and brink
Wow Brink? What an insult to Armageddon.
Its a game I'm quite interested in, the destruction and magnet gun mostly, but not at full price. When it drops in price, (quite a lot), then I'll get it.
here. It was an ok demo just not full price and since last year I stop buying games from june till like sept to catch up on my back log! I'll get this later. Glad its not open world. Last one had you driving 10 mins for 3 min missions!
To be honest i hated the fact that sandbox aspect was taken away. But if you force yourself to get past that & just play the game i actually thought it was a lot of fun. One of the top 10 games ive played so far this year & ive played 38 games now this year, so top 25% aint bad
expected!Now they are going on a hype and advertisement campaign for Saints row3 just like they did with Homefront and they probably will do well,not because of the game itself.Another one that will bite the dust most likely is WH 40.000 releasing 10 days before GEARS 3 it already haves the fate written.I really dont understand the lack of titles during summer season and them release them all in the two months prior.
The game was simply very repetitive and boring. Linear games can still be good, like Dead Space. This game was just same thing over and over, the enemies SUCKED toward the end of the campaign I was extremely bored. The destruction and magnet gun can only do so much.
They did do one thing great and that was the weapons, other than that everything was so bad I barely finished the campaign. I think this game was the shortest time I ever had out from a Gamefly rental.
thq should have a good turn around when the one in november come out. wwe is a big seller for them
problem was they took the whole fucking multiplayer away besides that challenge mode or whatever the name it had
I played the demo. It's an ok game but not worth full price to me. WWE and SR the 3rd will be big sellers for them.
this game could've been a whole other game on it's own. Just keeping the destruction tech from the red faction games. but alas, just another shooter lost in a sea of shooters
I am a huge red faction fan I went and brought infamous 2 instead I will wait for a price drop.
Disappointing sales for a disappointing game.
lol not to disappointed i won from ebay for 20 bucks been playing it last 2 days well worth the money it was sealed copy also
There were much better games around at the time, but I still want to get this on eBay now its under half priced.
Don't do it. I would rent it at best.
I just didn't want to crawl around in a cave the entire game...
