Red Faction is a first-person shooter video game developed by Volition, Inc. and published by THQ. It was released for thePlayStation 2, Microsoft Windows and Mac in 2001. A version for the Nokia N-Gage was developed by Monkeystone Games. The game was also re-developed as a top-down shooter for the mobile phone.[1] The game was inspired by several works of contemporary Science Fiction, most notably the movie Total Recall among others.[2]

Red Faction takes place on Mars in the late 21st century. The player controls a miner named Parker who helps lead a rebellion against the Ultor Corporation. The premiere feature of the game is its "Geo-Mod" technology, short for "geometry modification", which provided destructible environments, allowing the player to destroy certain sections of the scenery in the game. For example, instead of opening a door, a player could blast through the rock surrounding the door.[3]

As of August 5, 2009, Red Faction has been made available through the Steam platform with a few of the problems associated with running the game on a modern computer fixed. The game is also available, DRM free, on Direct2Drive and GamersGate.
