New Red Faction Movies

GameSpot has recently presented two new movies of the upcoming FPS Red Faction in action.
For those unfamiliar with the details, Red Faction is a self-styled "Half-Life-killer" that is
aiming to revitalize the currently worn-out FPS genre.
The new movies bring to light some interesting aspects regarding the gameplay. Movie 11
displays the player using a flamethrower, a machine gun, a sniper rifle, and what looks like
a laser of sorts. The sound effects are noticeably detailed, with enemies screaming as they die, vehicles blowing
up, and weapons chattering. One shorts segment appears to show an enemy saying "I surrender!" just before he gets
Movie 10 shows the player piloting some sort of flying craft (1st person cockpit view) and engaging other craft in battle.
It also shows off
varied environments such as a tunnel of sorts and what appears to be an underground base.
Grenades were in evidence as well, though the ensuing explosions didn't seem to display
Red Faction's much-touted ability to deform terrain hit by explosives.
