One of the most-anticipated Fall releases Mac gamers are eager to see is Red Faction, a first-person shooter due to be published by GraphSim in the next month. Making the unusual transition from PlayStation 2 to the Mac OS, this futuristic title combines a long solo adventure with online multiplayer support and adds several new "spins" to an aging genre. This preview is based on hands-on experience with a recent Mac OS beta of the game, and comes with a gameplay movie in both small and large versions.

Here's a sample from the preview:

How many times have you come across a stubborn door you couldn’t find the key card for, or a wall that stood between you and the bad guys? How many times have you ducked an explosive rocket, only to see it left nothing but a tiny burn mark on the wall? No longer.

Throughout the solo and multiplayer game, certain areas of the game environment can be blown to bits at will, allowing you to find secret passages, work your way around obstacles and generally wreak havoc on the mines of Ultor. Along the way you will discover an increasingly powerful arsenal of weapons, face an impressive array of enemy guards and armed vehicles, and commandeer subs, jeeps, assault aircraft and mining equipment in your quest for freedom from the clutches of the evil Ultor mining corporation.

For the rest of the preview as well as screen shots and movies, follow the link below.
