Red Faction: Guerrilla - 360
Lollipop Chainsaw - 360
Red Faction: Armageddon - 360
Final three games complete off 2012 and a bit of mixed bag I have to say.
Despite owning Red Faction II for the Cube Guerrilla is the first game in the series that I have played and it's a fairly enjoyable if not particularly remarkable game. The game is just basically mindless shooting and destruction intermixed with various missions, all of which can be quite fun but also rather forgettable.
The missions start off quite interesting but as more and more are added they can become quite repeititive though fortunately you can just pick and choose which ones you would like to complete and can at any time just continue on with the main game. Armageddon on the other hand seems to go the other way and instead of the open world of Guerrilla it becomes a linear shooter and not for the better. Keeping a few of the traits of Guerilla and adding new ones, like the ability to re-build structures, Armageddon is a game that once played pretty much gives no reason to go back to it.
As for Lollipop Chainsaw. Yes it's main character is a scantily clad cheerleader but beyond that is a manic and ridiculously fun game that is absolutely terrific to play. The game play is pretty basic but what it lacks in that it really makes up for in everything else. How many other games can you run over Zombies with a combined harvester whilst You Spin Me Round (Like a Record) is playing? I imagine none and that amongst other things is why Lollipop Chainsaw is definitely worth playing.
