Game description: A revolution has begun on Mars, and you are at the forefront. As part of a rebellious organization known as Red Faction, you must battle through 20 levels that feature deep seas, natural caves, Ultor Corporation's bases, and more. Hijack five land, sea, and air vehicles--each equipped with weapons--including an ATV, a submarine, and a high-flying fighter. Help yourself to 15 weapons of mass destruction, such as railguns, rocket launchers, riot sticks, and heavy explosives. Stealth, cooperation, and action are all important to achieve success.
Red Faction takes place on Mars in the late 21st century. The player controls a miner named Parker who helps lead a rebellion against the Ultor Corporation. The premiere feature of the game is its "Geo-Mod" technology, short for "geometry modification", which provided destructible environments, allowing the player to destroy certain sections of the scenery in the game. For example, instead of opening a door, a player could blast through the rock surrounding the door.
