Red Faction is one of most paradoxically charming franchises in gaming history. It's got two games, the first and the third, that are pretty good: low budget, sure, but ambitious and likable. And then it's got two games that are practically famous for mediocre design.

And why, of course, people love Red Faction anyway.
