A great time if you don't care about the story and you just want to mess around in an open-world destroying everything in sight. It can feel a little tedious after a while, but the immensely impressive destructibility for just about everything will keep you engaged to the end.

Red Faction Re-Mars-tered may not add anything new, but everything we loved about the original looks better than ever.

Red Faction Guerrilla returns, taking a second crack at being an instant classic. The awesome environmental destruction returns alongside the hammer, one of the best gaming weapons ever. And the game has been redone in 4K resolution with improved lighting and textures. Unfortunately, the bad stuff still remains: shooting and driving feel floaty, enemy response is tuned too high, and there are a number of glitches present. As such, the remaster merely brings a great game into the modern age, without the improvements that would mark a better re-release.

Red Faction Guerilla ReMARStered is far from perfect, but it's fun, and it's proof that not every game needs to have a serious, super in-depth narrative to please.

Hopefully, some patches bring this remaster up to par, because it would be unforgivable to have Guerrilla fail a second time due to a rushed port.

One decade later, RFG it's still one of the best games in terms of destructible enviroments, a very gratifying feature that the remastered edition retains... as it does with its shortcomings, like a relatively empty map to repetitive missions or the graphics, that look outdated in some areas like character models.

Red Faction Guerrilla is back with a remastered version that is not enough to make up the 10-year-old flaws of the game. In spite of the fact that destroying everything is still quite funny, there are better options nowadays for the fans of this crazy action games.

If you're a fan of Just Cause or Saint's Row, then Red Faction Guerrilla might well tickle your fancy. In the days of sprawling open world titles with hundreds of missions tied together with awful stories, the simplicity of this game makes a welcome change. Violence is not big, hard, or clever, but it sure is a hell of a lot of fun. Red Faction Guerrilla Me-Mars-tered is the remaster no one was asking for, but has turned out to be a welcome surprise.

It's a shame that for the second time Red Faction: Guerrilla will not have the attention that deserves, but the truth is that the game, despite it's still fun to play, it's simply outdated.

Despite the numerous visual corrections, the years do not pass in vain for an original game of 2009.

Despite being nine years old, this remaster makes Red Faction Guerrilla look almost new. With its fantastic GeoMod 2.0 engine, the mayhem and destruction hasn't lost any of its appeal, though its PS4 Pro “high quality” mode is in dire need of optimisation.

I've had such a blast playing it all over again, and desperately wish Volition would announce a new entry in the series that – unlike the follow-up Armageddon – is also set outside in a big open world.

The game fully understands what makes it fun, and it does everything it can to empower the player to see that with as few restrictions as possible.

Red Faction Guerilla got a remaster treatment, but it's underwhelming.

Red Faction: Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered brings back the best destruction in gaming. It also opens the door for another game in the series.

Red Faction: Guerrilla's biggest strength is without a doubt the sheer amount of fun you can have smashing things across Mars. Sadly, that initial enjoyment doesn't last long as you proceed to do the same missions over and over again. Is this game worth picking up, or even worth replaying? For the sake of nostalgia, it might be nice to boot up the game just to relive old memories, but I wouldn't recommend purchasing this title. Despite launching at a reduced price and even being free in some instances, I would suggest playing something else. The standards for open-world third-person shooters has risen far beyond Red Faction: Guerrilla. Skip this game unless you are a huge fan of the original, or you just really love breaking stuff.

Red Faction: Guerrilla was one of my favorite games in childhood, but after playing through it with fresh eyes I'm able to see the issues I didn't pick up as a kid: the story isn't memorable, the combat is lackluster, and the large open world isn't full of many interesting things to do.

Red Faction: Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered presents a great opportunity for those who have already played it and those who haven't. For the former, it's a chance to experience its explosive, imperfect glory in a higher framerate and with better visuals. For the latter, it's a chance to play one of the cult classics of last generation at its peak.

Red Faction: Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered shows a lot of contradictions: we can find the same amazing and never equaled free approach, but also a very old-fashioned game world that results too much empty for today's standards.

Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered won't be winning any awards for Remaster of the Year, but blowing stuff up is still so much fun that it works. The explosive gameplay brings enjoyment to side, story and DLC missions.
