The destructibility is truly something to be loved. The physics and structural mechanics, for the buildings and such, work together beautifully. No need to use a large number of explosives, although fun to do so, to bring a building down to eye level. If you can find the weak points like in real buildings you can make them fall with ease. Original and fun weapons to behold when taking on the baddies. Large map to run around in and many secrets to find. A nice story to play through and a fun variety of side missions to take care of. Also with a multiplayer section that is surprisingly fun to do this is a nice game to go through. This things a very nice step up from its predecessors in the past, so you should give it a go if you played the first two or if you just blow things up on the martian world like Arnold did in ''Total Recall.'' Either way it doesn't matter, so Asta La Vista, BABY!

Volition are the creators of what in my opinion were 2 of the best PS2 titles ever, red faction 1 and 2. Red Faction Guerilla is set in the not too distant future after Red Faction 2. The destructable enviroments in Red faction and how they integrated them into the gameplay was absolutly revolutionary. To my dismay though, developers have not taken this concept very far at all after all these years! The PS3 has the power to have quality fully destructable enviroments but developers for some reason do implement it. Well with this game I'm happy to say voiltion is back with a vengence! They have brought the destructable enviroment theme into the next gen in a big way. The game plays like a GTA IV or infamous except EVERYTHING in the world is absolutly COMPLETELY destructable! Even the buildings metal frame structure can be destroyed with enough firepower or a few whacks with the sledge, watching a huge building come crashing down after breaking out the entire first floors's walls is awesome. The object of the game is to take out the EDF's buildings, complete guerilla combat missions, and win over support of the miners, doing this will get you to the point where you are able to undertake the main mission in that sector to take control of the sector from the EDF It really is a fun, fast paced and action packed game.The combat gameplay is spot on and fun, the missions are interesting as is the storyline. I LOVE this game. I am very very pleased with Volition for making something so far beyond anyone's expectations with this game. You will not be disappointed in this game.
This game can be great but sometimes it can be the most annoying games ever. Some of the drive missions are very annoying and dumb. Even the rescue people missions are dumb because they are always upstairs and you can't rush in or you will break the stairs and fail. Another fault in this game there is always a million people were ever you go. Even just little salvage missions there is always a bunch of people guarding even little things and it seems they just keep coming to if you don't rush in destroy the thing you will be there forever.
