Game reviews for Red Faction II
Words fail me....but I will try...
DIRE DIRE DIRE! AWFUL, SOMEBODY PUT IT DOWN!
Never (on any console) have I played such an awful 1st person shooter.
Graphically it's ok, some nice effects.
The sound is pretty good.
And that's the good points.
The bad guys are stupid, and run around randomly, often shooting at walls or in the wrong direction!
They can walk over floors you have blown away, or holes you have made and seem not to flinch when you shoot them, making you wonder if you really are on target.
I spent half of my time trying to figure out where the Hell I was supposed to be going next...the screens are so cluttered that the only way you are going to get from a to b is by pure luck.
This game has no feeling to it whatsoever, you don't feel 'good' when you ice a bad guy, and the whole thing feels 'remote'. Unlike HALO on the x-box, this game feels like a game, it dosn't suck you in, you don't jump and frankly, the only battle is to try and stay awake long enough to get to the next auto save.
The A.I is poor all round, not just the bad guys, but your fellow team members also seem to be fresh out of the funny farm, and spend much of their time shooting at stuff that aint there and running into walls.
Red faction 2 is awful, and not worthy to be on the shelves, not even if it was reduced in price to £20:00
I would sooner french kiss my Grandmother than play this game any longer. It had a life span with me of approx 1 hour. That's as long as it takes to realise that you HAVE to get rid of it. (Fortunately I have kept my reciept)
DON'T BUY THIS GAME....YOU WILL REGRET IT.
