and we've given it a shot.
At its second annual Editor's Day, THQ proudly
demonstrated its eagerly awaited sci-fi shooter Red
Faction. Taking place on the planet of Mars in a
distant future, the game follows the adventures of
Parker, a disillusioned miner in the employ of the
undoubtedly evil multi-planetary Ultor Corporation.
When a plague begins to spread throughout the mining community, suspicions are aroused -- and, with the help of a few scrupulous Ultor employees, a massive conspiracy is eventually revealed.
In our last preview, we wondered whether the Geo Mod
engine was gimmick or genre-buster, and we're
pleased to say that many of Volition's claims are valid.
We've been following this one for some time, but this
is the first hands-on look we've had with it -- and if the developers can nail that ever-so-tricky issue of
gameplay balancing, we might have a winner on our
hands. Stay tuned for more updates - we've got a
feeling that when it comes to tearing the first-person
shooter genre a new one, Red Faction still has plentyof rounds left in its barrel. De Daily Radar preview is in ieder geval veelbelovend over het spel. Maar een verhaal heeft altijd 2 kanten en wil je het ook in het Nederlands lezen, klik dan hier.
