Back in 2009, Red Faction: Guerrilla surprised many games (myself included) by taking the PS2 first-person shooter franchise set on Mars and turning into an open-world game focused on an incredible level of detailed building destruction. Now in Armageddon, Volition is returning the series' linear shooter roots. Reiner pulled me into the first 15 minutes of the game to explain why it doesn't really hold up.

However disappointing Armageddon might be, this video at least provides some cool explosions, painful hammer attacks, a reveal of important information about Reiner's past, and some awesome slo-mo effects. Enjoy!
