Red Faction: Armageddon impressions
by Conrad Zimmerman

THQ had a brief demonstration of the next iteration in the Red Faction series, subtitled Armageddon, at E3 last week and I made sure to take the opportunity to see it. Set two generations after the events of Guerrilla, the Martian colony has moved back from the ruined surface of the planet and rebuilt underground. Now they find themselves under attack by a previously unknown race of creatures which has overrun and infected the colony in a short 72-hour span.

Players take on the role of Darius Mason, grandson of Red Faction: Guerrilla protagonists Alec Mason and Samanya, who is somehow being held responsible for the events which threaten the colony. Thankfully, Darius' family passed down the Nano Forge, which has seen some changes since the last time we saw its use.
