Red Faction [PC Game]
Developed by: Volition - THQ Publishing (2001) - First-Person Shooter - Rated: Everyone
Red Faction players take on the role of an alienated mine worker, slaving away in the endless tunnels and shafts deep beneath the
surface of a futuristic Mars. As the proletariat mine workers are continuously pushed harder and further by the heartless
corporation that owns the mines, a deep resentment grows. When a strange malady known as "the Plague" breaks out in the
mines, the workers finally begin to revolt. As the game's hero Parker, it is the player's first objective to simply survive the violent
coup. This is the unusual premise for the first-person shooter, developed for both the PlayStation 2 and IBM Compatible PC
platforms. In support of the game's storyline Red Faction also features some strong aspects of role-playing and adventure, as the
character must often think and talk his way through situations instead of mindlessly plowing ahead with a finger wrapped around
The designers at Volition are known for developing the successful FreeSpace series of space combat sims, based in the
ground-breaking Descent universe. This experience is put to use in Red Faction, as several of the game's missions will require the
player to pilot various vehicles, across land, sea, and air. Another innovation provided in Red Faction is the introduction of
Volition's "Geo-Mod" engine, which allows realistically deformable, destructible environments. While solid rock and reinforced
steel walls will prevent the character from simply blasting his way through a level in whichever direction he pleases, most walls
and objects can be damaged or destroyed with weapon fire and some missions will require that the player make use of this ability.
From the Manufacturer: From the creators of the award-winning FreeSpace series comes Red Faction. Every fps gamer has
wondered what it would be like to unleash his weapons not just on unworthy opponents, but on the very walls that constrain
them. With that in mind, Red Faction introduces Geo-Mod technology - real-time, arbitrary geometry modification that drastically
enhances realism and diversity of gameplay. Framed by impressive features including an astonishing physics engine, controllable
vehicles, intense graphics, kick-ass weapons, unique natural environments and a hugely involving storyline, Red Faction is the
next must-have title for serious gamers.
Special Features: RED FACTION features: the revolutionary Geo-mod engine, deformable environments, clever AI, 11 different
weapons, and an evolving and gritty sci-fi storyline.
