Personally, I was a huge fan of the original Red Faction on the PS2. That GeoMod technology was kinda cool.
I haven't really gotten into the series since, though, and I'm sort of hoping the latest installment will rekindle my interest. THQ has announced that Red Faction: Armageddon will launch in North America on May 31 and on June 3 worldwide. To learn more about this promising title, check out our preview . They're ditching the open-world formula from Guerrilla and going with a more linear adventure; a straight-up action title beneath the surface of Mars. Sure, it may sound more like a generic title now, but based on the footage we've seen thus far, developer Volition seems to be on the right track. And by the way, you might recall that Red Faction movie set to come to the SyFy channel. This will be ready to go in May, which means the made-for-TV film might act as a decent lead-in to the interactive adventure. We're hoping both turn out well.
Was I the only one who liked Red Faction when it came out way back in 2001? I mean, I thought it was pretty damn great.
