Red Faction Wants You To Choose Australia's #1 Eyesore

big-bananaTHQ is conducting a public survey to promote the upcoming release of Red Faction: Guerrilla. They ask: Which Aussie landmark would you most like to take to with a giant hammer?

Red Faction's iconic weapon is a hammer. Not just any hammer... a space hammer capable of punching through concrete and steel to bring entire building crushing down.

So of course it stands to reason you'd want to use this space hammer to destroy some of Australia's worst public landmarks. Survey suggestions include the Coffs Harbour's Big Banana, Melbourne's Federation Square and Sydney's Toaster.

We'd like to see the "winning" eyesore be modelled in the game and released as DLC.

Go and vote here.


    Where the eff is the Big Marino in Goulburn! It's bigger than most of those!

    How is the Bell Tower and that new stupid ferris wheel thing (both in Perth) not on that list?

    It's gotta be the Opera House, without a doubt!

    hahaha, I love it. Being in the ACT, I voted for Belconnen Mall, an awful grey blob of a thing that I spent many youthful days knocking about at. I also nominated the Sky Plaza apartments as what I'd also like to knock down, that thing is a bloody eyesore on the southside.

    Port Adelaide. seriously wipe it off the map!!

    LOL! Belconnen Mall why the hell is that dump there.

    Most definitely "Aussie world" or the giant plastic Ayers Rock at Leyland Brothers world (now a truck stop) in between Sydney and Newcastle which are both eyesores and an embarrassment to Australian's everywhere. Seriously people see this stuff and its not good.

      I thought the faux Ularu was north of Newcastle. Its closer to Port Macquarie. And yes, it is hideous. But I think the worst offender is the Giant Oyster!

    Summer Bay

    THQ australia....

    ahurr hurr hurr...

    Taking out the Southern Star in the Melbourne Waterfront district would be awesome.

    Imagine smashing the supports at the bottom then watching it roll away leaving a bloody destructive trail...

    Australia's biggest eyesore?

    Well, I suppose Canberra's pretty big...

    What about letting us smash the whole of melbourne
    Sydney 'Till I Die!!!

    Michael Atkinson's teeth would be the biggest eye sore by far!

    Canberra's a hole, but it's not an ugly one. I think it's the nicest city in Australia to look at.

    As for what I think the biggest eyesore in Australia is, I'd have to go with the ugly chick I saw at Flamingo's in Goulburn when I was there a few weeks ago. She was just WRONG!!

    Hey I live in canberra and whenever I travel through major towns in NSW all I think is dam these places are ugly most of it just massive warehouse stores like fyshwick but it goes on forever.

    I don't know, can I vote for Sydney?

    Why yes, I am in Melbourne :P

      Sydney it is....what a shithole. hahahahaha

    Cabramatta Sydney 1990's... simply because seeing it in a game would be WTF!

    ...and how [email protected]#kin dare anyone out there make fun of our banana... after all its been through. It lost its shine... it went through a cyclone... it ate two f$%king kids, its owner turned out to be a bad businessman and sold it for a dollar. All you people care about are big merinos and prawns... and making money from misery. Its a banana ..... LEAVE BIG BANANA ALONE!! :( :( :(

    These Big Things are as iconic to Australia as snobbery is to the French or punctuality is to the Germans or vodka is to the Russians. I propose that Australia's #1 eyesore is this website.
