Red Faction - A Retrospective

MMGN.com writes: Today was a sad day for gaming - THQ announced that they would finally be laying the long running Red Faction series to rest after poor sales with the latest release Red Faction: Armageddon. Let's take a look at a series that made the transition from a groundbreaking first-person shooter to a 3rd person combat title. (GameCube, PC, PS2, PS3, Red Faction, Red Faction 2, Red Faction: Armageddon, Red Faction: Guerrilla, Xbox, Xbox 360)

Red Faction was a very cool game and it was the reason i bought a PS2...well other than the fact that the PS2 was a cheap DVD player.

THQ destroyed any chances of success for this game when they tried a new formula. This is their New Coke moment and they should have kept the open world sandbox of RFG.

its sad, i really enjoyed Armageddon too, stupid reviews crying about how its not a carbon copy of the last game is who is to blame, the devs explained quite well why they chose to take out the open world and focus on the story, good anyway cause i thought the open world was too distracting for a game that focuses on story
