Red Faction II
(PS2; THQ; Mature) The revolution will not be televised…because it will happen in a videogame instead. In RFII, players assume the role of Alias, a biofreak with a knack for demolition and an abiding desire to topple the corrupt regime that has Earth in subjugation. This well-crafted shooter boasts destructible environments that make trashing property nearly as much fun as deep-sixing bad guys. Though the game is short, it ends differently depending on your level of ”heroics,” so style matters. A satisfying entry in a genre that could use a little rebellion of its own.
