GamePro (US) (Sep 17, 2009)
It's no secret that ever since it burst onto the scene back in June, the GamePro offices have fallen madly in love with Red Faction: Guerrilla. In all honestly, THQ could have swapped out the sledgehammers for rubber mallets and the sprawling mining colonies with Barbie Dream Houses; as long as it all blew up the same, you wouldn't find us complaining. Loaded with all of the content from the incendiary original release, not to mention some exemplary PC exclusives, Volition has struck gold with the definitive edition of the most explosive title of 2008.

If you didn't already get in on the destruction on a console, this PC version is just as good at a better value thanks to all the extra content packed in. Despite its lackluster storytelling, Red Faction: Guerrilla is a whole lot of fun to play, thanks to its meaty campaign and well-rounded multiplayer offerings. The game makes sure you have a good time blowing stuff up, and in this case, that's more than enough.

This third-person action game is a great open-world adventure for anyone with an appetite for destruction.

While it’s true some of the tasks open to you in Red Faction: Guerrilla can feel a little repetitious, even laborious, they’re vastly outweighed by the sheer fun you can have taking the land and EDF apart. The story’s cliché but frankly anything that gives a guy like Mason the excuse to blow up almost the entire infrastructure of a planet in the name of ‘freedom’ can’t be a bad thing, and luckily it isn’t as long as you weren’t expecting an Oscar nominated script. Red Faction has come a long way from those miner tunnels from the original adventure, and the Geo-Mod engine has matured in a spectacular fashion. Red Faction: Guerrilla is non-stop destruction when things heat up; visually and in the action itself. For fans of the sandbox world who really enjoy a toolset of mayhem, you’d best acquaint yourself with the nearest Red Faction recruiter you can find.

Faszinierend. Ich weiß nicht, wie viele Häuser, Straßensperren und Türme ich im Laufe des Spiels zerlegt habe, aber langweilig wurde das zu keiner Sekunde. Langweilig war höchstens das oft gleiche Drumherum, sowohl in Sachen Optik als auch in Sachen Auftragslage. Hätte Volition die Zerstörungsorgie in ein deutlich stärkeres Handlungskorsett gesteckt und so mehr Identifikationsgründe geschaffen, hätte aus Red Faction: Guerilla ein echter Hit werden können. So ist es immer noch ein sehr gutes Programm -- das Fans von Aufbauspielen meiden sollten.

If you haven't already picked up this surprise summer hit for console, the PC version offers enough content at an excellent price to make this a purchase you definitely won't regret.

Volition en Reactor Zero brengen dit destructieve actiespel op geslaagde wijze naar de pc. Happy demolishing!

Red Faction: Guerilla steht für moderne Action, jedenfalls in technischer Hinsicht! Leider tut Volition aber nur das Nötigste, erzählerisch sogar zu wenig, um das technische Spektakel inhaltlich zusammenzuhalten: Die Geschichte wird wie mit einer abweisenden Handbewegung erzählt, die Charaktere spielen praktisch keine Rolle und als einzige Reaktion auf mein Tun erhalte ich Bemerkungen zum aktuellen Stand der Freiheitskampfes. Ein uninspiriertes Design sowie kleine grafische Schwächen geben sich zudem alle Mühe, um die Rebellion auf dem Mars wie eine sterile Zeitungsmeldung wirken zu lassen. Auch dürfte das Verlangen nach vierfachen Mehrkern-Prozessoren den installierten Realitäten in Deutschlands Wohnzimmern etwas zu optimistisch vorauseilen. Auf der Gegenseite erhalten PC-Spieler dafür eine satte Ladung zusätzlicher Inhalte, welche die marsianische Einzel- und Mehrspieler-Welt sinnvoll erweitern.

Red Faction: Guerrilla is a solid game. I can see why my console colleagues had so many good things to say about it. The engine is excellent, and even as I wrapped up my last game, I found myself hoping that other companies would make use of what the engine has to offer. As long as you have an active Internet connection at all times, this is the game for anyone who wants to be immersed in a righteous guerrilla struggle.

Bright Hub (Jun 09, 2011)
The sandbox aspect of this game along with a strong story and the ability to destroy almost everything makes for a very fun game and while there are some frustrating flaws these are not enough to ruin an otherwise very fun game. So if you enjoy open games and want to be able to destroy every building and vehicle and really change things then this is well worth picking because there is a lot of things in this game that you won't find in many other games.

Gra nie razi pięknem, jednak jest przyjemna dla oka. Trzyma dobry poziom, który podnosi niebywałą dawką grywalności i swobody działania. Dla zapalonych graczy będzie to idealny prezent na gwiazdkę.

Thunderbolt Games (Oct 16, 2009)
But, even with a somewhat listless game world, Red Faction: Guerrilla is an enjoyable game. Surprisingly, it has a lot of life to it. For a game built largely around the “blow shit up” gimmick, you’d expect it to lose steam after a few hours, but Guerrilla stays entertaining through most of the game, only tapering slightly toward the conclusion. While it has weak points, most notably taking the open world structure that many other games have utilized and failing to improve upon it in significant ways, it nonetheless succeeds because, well, it’s fun. It might not be the most original game you’ll ever play, and some of the design decisions might leave you scratching your head, but even still, Guerrilla provides an entertaining experience from start to finish.

There is plenty of freedom and flexibility in how players approach each level with a great mixture of main tasks and side missions for players to take part in. All of these actions attempt to weaken the EDF presence in the area and eventually allow the area to free themselves from their control.

Jeuxvideo.com (Sep 24, 2009)
Défouloir absolu, Red Faction : Guerrilla est un titre absolument unique en son genre. Addictif, souple et séduisant, le titre de Red Faction délivre des séquences d'action mémorables au sein d'un bac à sable parfaitement conçu. Dans une certaine mesure, le soft parvient même à nous faire oublier son caractère fondamentalement répétitif grâce à de nombreuses petites trouvailles. Pour ne rien gâcher, Red Faction : Guerrilla se paie même le luxe de nous offrir un mode multi d'excellente qualité. En revanche, on ne peut fermer les yeux sur l'optimisation lacunaire qui coûte un point à cette version PC. RFG reste tout de même une bonne surprise qui mérite amplement d'être essayée, et même adoptée.

Kaputt machen, zerlegen, vernichten – ja, das befriedigt meine destruktive Ader, da lacht mein Actionspieler-Herz. Guerrilla übte durchaus Faszination auf mich aus, erreichte aber zu keiner Zeit echtes Toptitel-Niveau. Die Entwickler versäumten es, die Brachialität noch etwas anzureichern: mit einer spannenden Handlung, mitreißenden Präsentation oder pfiffigen Missionen – all das fehlt sehr. Hinzu kommt, dass die groß angelegte Zerstörung, die das Aushängeschild des Titels ist, selbst mächtige Hightech-Rechner überfordert. Da wurde bei der Portierung gepfuscht.

Ultimately Guerrilla is unsatisfying, only because it doesn't take its own ideas far enough. What is there is not bad, and if there is blame that needs to be apportioned it can probably be laid at the feet of whoever was responsible for not giving Volition enough time to get where they might have been headed: to a more interesting world, to a thicker plot, to more clever AI, etc. Red Faction: Guerrilla is the game for people who are either perfectly satisfied with above-average shooters or are lovers of the might-have-been.
