If the original Red Faction proved anything, it was that blowing holes in things is jolly good fun. At the time such a simple pleasure was big news, with Volition's Geo-Mod technology pioneering the notion of destructible environments. Nowadays, of course, such a feature is plastered on the back of almost every videogame box going, but that hasn't deterred the Illinois-based developers. Instead, it's spurred them on to show everyone how it's done, stealing the current darling genre – the open-world sandbox - for themselves in the process. It's only fair, after all.
