Get your ass to Mars! (Red Faction Guerrilla)
« on: May 22, 2009, 04:43:00 AM »
Well a couple of days ago the multiplayer demo for RFG came out and I have to admit that this game is a god damn blast! With the Jump Pack backpack on the game feels like a throwback to the classic Tribes! At this point there is also a Single Player demo you can try out both sides of the game. Hope to see some of you all online playing this game!

Woot!  I need to download the MP demo immediately.  Had a blast with the single player once I got used to the controls.

This is my most anticipated game of the year.

I'm gonna plug GiantBomb again ('cause I think it's an awesome site) and say that there's a really neat little Quick Look of the demo over at their site:

Giant Bomb is the bomb.

I didn't see the multiplayer demo hit... is it xbox only? Or maybe US only? It's not on PSN here in Canada, either way... bastards.

I downloaded it, but haven't yet played it. I would probably give it a go now if the Xbox Live servers weren't down.

UPDATE.

I have now played it and it is actually alot more fun than I expected, I can't see the multiplayer in the full game keeping me interested for long though.

This game is amazing.  The single player campaign is kind of a GTA-style "go to one of 6 points on the map for a mission" kind of thing.  The AI is decent, the controls are tight....but this game's crown jewel is the GeoMod 2.0 technology.  Every structure is destructable, and the whole point of the game is to destroy shit.  I'm absoliutely loving it.

I also played the online multiplayer for a few hours, and it's also totally sweet.  There's a bunch of different game modes, they're all fun, the backpacks makes the whole thing totally chaotic (in a good way).

This is Game of the Year stuff, folks.

Played the demo and it seemed okay. This is something I may get when it goes to Platinum Hits.

I was confused as hell in the demo until I figured out to jump in the vehicle to get to the objective. Got my ass handed to me trying to attempt it on foot.

Hmm I didn't like the first part of the demo but running around in the mining bot and the chase was a blast!

I approve this statement! This is pretty much my feelings on the game, more multiplayer for me but to each their own.

Red Faction Guerrilla breaks E3.

 ;D

Very true, it was very hard to play Crackdown after playing RF:G. Damn this game!

I've been ignoring the single player lately, and been playing online for the past 3 nights. In single player  I've liberated Dust, and I'm close to liberating Badlands, but the difficulty has ramped up significantly, and I got sick of dying. This is the most fun I've had playing online since GTA IV last year.

I'll have to buy this when the local game shop gets it in (second-hand only).
