I'll wait for the public demo.

I never understood the mentality behind making a demo available with a preorder... I am playing the demo to know whether I want the game or not, so why would I have already ordered it?

The game looks pretty damn sweet.
I was thinking it was time they used the Open World concept on other settings other than regular cities... in other words, add SciFi to the mix

Yes there was. I have it here somewhere. Loved the MP of the first one blowing holes through stuff. The second one didnt interest me as much but it did exist for PC.

Agreed 100%. The demo should entice you to buy the game. And they wonder why piracy is rampant.

Is this going to be a multiplayer only game?

Nope, it's got singleplayer and multiplayer.

Default Re: Red Faction 3 = GTA on Mars?

Was wondering cause I went to the site and all the info on it is focusing on multiplayer and nothing about single player. Hopefully it's got a single player storyline like the previous 2, and not just a 'shoot against bots' kind of thing like a UT3 or something.

I wonder if there will be magical re-generating buildings... like if you lay an area to waste and totally demolish the buildings if you come back later and they're all magically rebuit... I bet it does. I'm calling it... though I hope I'm wrong.

Game looks promising though. Hopefully it's not just another tech demo like the first one was

I don't think its an open world like GTA but rather each mission takes place in a large none linear world. I don't think we will see regenerating buildings, the original was pretty good at keeping destruction visible at all times. Only if you enabled cheats or went crazy in a single area did the engine start to reset damage. I remember digging extremely deep tunnels on the PS2...

Demo impressed me on the 360. Just wish it had quick save.

yeah i found the demo to be pretty fun. The sledge hammer is so fun to just hit people with. The destruction is a bit odd...it works smoothly but almost everything breaks into perfect little squares - for the most part.
