It’s been a while since the Red Faction series was in vogue. But one of the best games in the series got a re-release this week, and rather conveniently, it’s half price.
Yesterday, on May 21, 2001, developer Volition and publisher THQ took gamers to Mars and let them blow the living hell out of everything that moved and most things that didn’t.
Despite the guilty pleasures of Red Faction: Guerilla, all it took was one sub-par game in the series (Red Faction: Armageddon) for publisher THQ to, at least temporarily, pull the plug on the series. Which is a damn shame.
