Red Faction: Armageddon
Red Faction: Armageddon was a failed attempt at bringing Red Faction back to the tunnels. The problem is that once we were in the open terrain of Mars and able to drive and obliterate any structure we wanted to in Red Faction Guerrilla, along with other fun options that made the game simply fun to play. Red Faction: Armageddon had a significant reduction in what there was to destroy and gave a gun that would disintegrate the structures instead of blowing them up. Part of the fun was causing mayhem, not keeping things tidy!
This was so bad that it was believed to be one of the reasons that THQ went bankrupt: thus destroying any hope that Red Faction could ever return to its former glory. Hopefully someone buys the rights and at least tries to give it another chance.
