Description

Long since the revolt from the mining of Mars, a new group has taken over Red Faction, and their sights are set on the dictator, Chancellor Sopot. Sopot originally created the Red Faction soldiers using a form of nano technology but, fearing they would fight back, ordered them to be destroyed.

As the leader of the group, your task is to take back freedom that was lost, and save your skin as well as that of those who work with you.

As was originally designed in the first Red Faction, Geo-Mod builds the world around you as a means to destroy it. Using rockets, mines and the many other weapons available, you can take down walls, blast through doors (therefore deleting the need for a security key) and bring down enemies by destroying the floor that they stand on. Vehicles can also be used to help in your tasks.

Multiplayer modes are also included for up to 4 players, as well as a collection of bots. As a note, the PC version does not have multiplayer.

Trivia

German version

There are a number of changes in the German version:
  • All blood and gore effects were removed
  • Corpses disappear a few seconds faster
  • All weapons which allow to set enemies on fire were replaced with other weapons
  • A few cheats relating to blood and gore effects were removed
A detailed list of changes can be found on schnittberichte.com (German).

Signs

In the sewer levels there are signs that read...

DANGER
Why are you people so stupid? We have to put signs all over the place because if we don't you would walk off a cliff into a lava pit or something. What is up with that? Come to think of it, you won't read this sign anyway. So what's the point.
In the Citadel lever there are funny little subtitles beneath the signs on all the military buildings. I won't spoil the surprise so you will have to look for yourselves. Easy to find though.
