Red Faction isn't necessarily one of my favorite games, but when I was younger it was this, Descent and Deus Ex that I had and I played the hell out of all of them.

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:

It was enjoyable though the difficulty I had to turn down because you just don't have the ammo and overall...too much driving lol

Playing the first Red Faction now...and it's also hard so maybe it's just the series :lol:
