More Red Faction Previews
10:22 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
Not to be outdone in the recent outpouring of Red Faction updates, X-treme Gaming Radio has added their own two cents with a preview of this upcoming FPS title. Drawing comparisons from the mighty Half-Life and other popular FPS titles, XGR's review tips into the positive realm, giving a glowing report of RF and its many features.
Besides the usual notes regarding the well-animated characters, the Geo-Mod engine, and the great background story, the preview also makes note of one of the less-noted features of RF - the reload time for various weapons. Some weapons require several animations during reload, rather than just the switching of a magazine, which will definitely make reload time a factor while playing the game.
The vehicles are also given some spotlight-time, with particular coverage given to a security vehicle of some kind that features both a submachine gun and an artillery launcher of some kind.

Though the Mac version isn't going to be out right along with the PC version, it is well underway and will hopefully see publication sometime sooner than later. In the meantime, feel free to check out XGR's preview as well as IMG's archives for more RF-related news.
