Will Red Faction return to its Roots?

The first FPS I ever played multiplayer online with was Red Faction for the PC. Heck, I still occasionally play its multiplayer today even though its a decade old. The singleplayer campaign for Red Faction was fun but the only reason why it’s still played today is for the multiplayer.

Good Stuff

Since the first, there has been 3 sequels; Red Faction 2, Red Faction: Guerrilla, and Red Faction: Armageddon. However, even though every sequel (except for Red Faction 2) has provided more and more gratuitous destruction (which was a driving force for Red Factions popularity), each installment seems to stray farther and farther away from the originals multiplayer glory.

The Rail Driver. Greatest Gun Ever?

Even though Red Faction’s online multiplayer proved to be a success, for some reason Red Faction 2 didn’t include online play. It came with offline split screen for consoles, but no online multiplayer for any platform. Now, i’m not sure what the deal was, but there should have been no excuse for that.

Why No Online Love? Why?

Then with the arrival of Guerrilla and Armageddon came a third person perspective and no dedicated servers. Now I have no problem with behind the shoulder shooters, and Guerrilla and Armageddon are respectable, fun games, but when it comes to Red Faction, I want first person mayhem.Please Violition, bring Red Faction back to its roots.

Third Person Explosion is Awesome. First Person Explosion Would Be Awesomer

  Also, Red Faction is cheap now, really cheap. You can get it off of Ebay, Steam, Direct2Drive or GamersGate.

For a great fan made patch that adds great features and increases compatibility with newer systems such as fixing the “8mb of video memory is required to run Red faction” error, give Pure Faction a download.
