The news from E3 may have everyone abuzz about new controllers and yet more Halo sequels, but all that is in the far flung future, otherwise known as autumn. For those of you who prefer instant gratification you can get your hands Red Faction Guerrilla right now.

Volition's decision to abandon canned animations in favour of structural engineering, careful modelling and a lot of physics makes Red Faction Guerrilla one of the most authentically destructive games we've ever seen. The series has long prided itself on its Geo-Mod engine that allowed players to dig tunnels and blow up bridges, but for this third instalment they've rebuilt the engine to realistically create cascades of broken glass and twisted metal that would make a civil engineer weep, and having built it, boy do they show it off. If you've got an inner Godzilla just itching to lay waste to a small city, this is the game for you.

Of course, all this enjoyable destruction does start to pale after you've toppled your 50th building, but Red Faction Guerrilla does offer more than just a physics lesson. There's a revolution to foment, villains to be killed, and several open-world regions that need to be freed from tyranny. If all that sounds like your idea of fun, check out our Red Faction Guerrilla video review.
