Red Faction: Armageddon review - 84% in PCG

First verdict for THQ destruct-em-up

The first Red Faction: Armageddon review's arrived via PC Gamer US, which issues the THQ destruction shooter a handsome 84%.

The latest instalment has you playing a Martian miner man Darius Mason, who's accidentally unleashed an alien infestation throughout the colonies of the Red Planet.


Darius has at his disposal the Nano Forge, a device that lets him rebuild all that he destroys, and his signature weapon, the Magnet Gun, which lets him lob entire buildings at his enemies. Bit harsh.

The full game's out on 360, PS3 and PC on May 31 in the US and June 3 in UK, and a Red Faction: Armageddon demo is now available for download on Xbox Live.
