For everybody having the insert disc problem, you can't have any discs in your DVD drive at all or it will try and read that as the Red Faction game. (Coming from the Steam support section.) Anyways, the game is nothing like the first game. The game is split up into short little five minute mission sections, having to see a loading screen every five minutes is rather annoying. Since the missions are so short, there is a no quick save feature, just a level save feature, which will return you to the beginning of the level you were on. There is no optimization for PC, the only setting under video is "Brightness." At least Red Faction 1, you could change the texture quality. Another thing that disappointed me was from the lack of subtitles. I used the full captions in Left 4 Dead, and have used subtitles ever since. Also the framerate in the vehicle missions drops to unplayable. I drop from sixty to eight frames per second, like nothing. I have a Radeon HD 6850, I can max Metro 2033 on dx10, but not play an eleven year old game? Come on now. There is still health packs, but your health is semi-recoverable, aka bars of health, if your health goes down too much you'll lose that bar of health and not be able to recover it without a health pack. This is still favorable, and there is still a weapon wheel, but there is no concern over concerving ammo. Near the end of the first game, I had to make every bullet count, which was a nice survival trick, but this game throws ammo at you, like it's nothing. The plot line of Red Faction was typical, and not as unique as the first. The game is only on average six hours long, which is greater than the first, but still six hours of a butchered PlayStation 2 game, do you really want to play that?
