Red Faction: Armageddon is the answer from Volition where they have made a return to Mars, and to hardcore destructibility, but from a welcome new perspective.
Red Faction: Battlegrounds a downloadable multiplayer arena shooter hat's "very DLC-based, all bout the world", according to a THQ spokesperson. It is not inspiring stuff: downloadable titles can be simple, but this looks like you've seen everything in the first minute. A more uccessful expansion of the world may be Red Faction: Origins, an animated movie produced by Syfy, based on he property and scheduled for March next year. Add the usual slew of books, comics and hoodies come the release date of Armageddon and, though we're suckers for Red Faction's destruction as such as anyone, it does make you wonder who's buying this stuff. There's a distinct flavour of Dead Space in the insectoid nature of the enemies. Whether this sci-fi twist will gel with the series' grass-roots theme is yet to be seen.

The only flat note of this early look is the opposition itself, an unimaginative bunch. There are the creepers, small and agile melee attackers. There are the ravagers, which throw lightning bolts. And then there's another one, whose name we didn't catch, that's an acid-spitting insectoid. These crunch satisfactorily, but you do get the impression you've seen them somewhere before.
Armageddon is building on the strengths of the series' previous thirdperson reinvention. Vehicles - though not a highlight of Guerilla - are promised for the multiplayer mode. It's a much more gruesome affair this time around, shootouts in enclosed spaces providing a much more immediate and intense thrill than Guerilla's more open areas afforded. How well the array of world-bending weapons copes in small spaces will be the true test.
