Red Faction Armageddon First Impressions

Spread the Word!

There was a huge sale on Steam today and Red Faction was only 3 or 4 bucks so I decided to try it out for the first time.

red_faction_armageddon_game-wideI played the Red Faction that came before this one but I don’t remember what it was called or what it was about because I only played it for a few hours before I returned it to my friend. Red Faction Armageddon is a really fun game. The environments are completely destructible and I was having a blast wreaking havoc on aliens trapped in buildings. So far my favorite weapon is the big ass sledgehammer that you start off with. Right when I was about to call this the most addictive game i’ve played this year my game crashed to the desktop. I started the game up and played for exactly 15 more minutes then it crashed again. I did some research and learned that this game has major glitches and crashing to the desktop is one of the most infamous glitches out there. I fixed this problem by running it in compatibility with Windows Xp or Vista service pack 1 or 2 but after I did that I experienced massive FPS drops in game and it ruined my fun.

After tinkering with the settings I managed to get an acceptable frame rate and continue blasting enemies away. The voice acting in this game isn’t bad so far but since my first hour in this game already had me fixing it I can’t really recommend this game to anyone. Hopefully as I get further into the game i’ll have a more positive attitude about it but as of right now Red Faction Armageddon is a buy at your risk kind of game.

    I could not get into this game. I have no idea why. A lot of my friends rave about it though

      It’s a good game if you like blowing shit up but it’s so glitchy I can’t recommend it to you. At least not on PC. It’s only or dollars though so it’s up to you if you want to take that risk.
