I initially had a hard time writing my review of Red Faction: Armageddon. I almost fell into the same trap that caught me in my review of No More Heroes 2, another game that essentially abandoned an existing open-world concept, of reviewing the predecessor rather than the sequel. This was an enticing prospect, because I liked Red Faction: Guerilla a great deal, and I did not like Armageddon one little bit.

LOW The monster didn't seem to notice it.

WTF Why am I doing so much work to protect force-fields and take out bridges when these creatures are constantly emerging from the solid rock?

HIGH Watching your very last explosive take down the crucial pillar that brings down an entire structure.

LOW Driving vehicles across the entire map within a ridiculous time limit.

WTF "When did those twenty guys appear?! Gah!"
