Gamespot's Previews on the Games Far Cry 2 and Red Faction: Guerilla

Gamespot has released previous for the PC first-person shooter games Far Cry 2 and Red Faction: Guerilla.

Far Cry 2 preview details:

The article discusses Far Cry 2's stealth element, open-ended gameplay scheme, and its seamless world (discussed initially HERE) in more detail. It also covers a level swathed in darkness, a first since the first videos released about Far Cry 2 were action sequences that transpired in daytime.

Red Faction: Guerilla preview

I really didn't read this one, much less care about its release but its sci-fi theme (Mars!) and the way a friend of mine gushed about this game and its purported (haven't played the first one) destructible environments got me to post this one in my blog as I'm sure this game has a considerable cult following. Sure enough, the article discusses about an innovative game engine that takes "destructible environments" to the next level --- destroy a building and you get to see everything, from its pillars to whatever catwalks lined it, go hurtling every whichway.
