Xbox launched with Halo and but PS2 gamers were stranded without a must-have FPS when their system came out. Red Faction changed all of that. Before online gaming became the dominant feature in console shooters, this game proved that a great storyline and a sick arsenal is all a FPS really needs.

The game is often remembered for its introduction of Geo-Mod technology, which allows for real-time destruction of environments.
