8:43 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
The official Red Faction web site has received a facelift, and in celebration Volition has released new screen shots and movies from the game in action. Check out the characters section for a new picture of each next to their description. The PC and PS2 shots are amazing, as well, so be sure to give them a look. The features page is also now up-to-date with the latest information on the specifics of the title.
If you're looking for more of a rundown of Red Faction, Action Vault recently posted their experience with the game after having the chance to play it. While the Geo-Mod engine has received a lot of press, there are many other features to the game like the storyline, graphics, and vehicles which should make it very exciting. Here's a clip:
In addition to the selection of weapons, Parker can also make use of five different vehicles for various types of terrain. Among these are two ground vehicles, a jeep and an armored personnel carrier, plus a flying fighter aircraft, a mini-sub and a huge drilling machine reminiscent of the movie Total Recall. According to Lawrance, Red Faction also contains some other similarities to the film, but none that were intentionally borrowed from it. In any case, he did note that the vehicle usage is limited to certain parts of the story by factors such as terrain, fuel and ammunition. Each vehicle has its own 3D cockpit and weapons, and they can become weapons themselves when used to run over unfortunate adversaries.Check out both the new web site and the Action Vault report for the latest on Red Faction. GraphSim will be publishing the Mac version of the game, which should be available soon after the PC build early this summer.
