Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered is the latest re-release of a last generation game from THQ Nordic, if the stunningly awful pun didn’t reveal that much. Saints Row The Third held up as a fine example of last generation open world design, even as its particular irreverent sensibilities often felt like a relic – the game showed its age but it was nonetheless fun to play.

Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered is the latest port to arrive on Switch. How does the game hold up? Digital Foundry examines things further in its latest analysis.

Of course, one of the aspects to go over first is resolution. If performance mode is enabled when docked, you’ll see resolution bounce between 792p and 900p. Going with quality mode instead keeps the action at 900p.

Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered will be appearing on Switch starting tomorrow. See how the game compares to the PlayStation 3 original below.

Nintendo has always stood apart in the games industry for its dedication to creating games that can be enjoyed by players of all skill levels. Brilliant titles like Super Mario Odyssey can spark joy in players regardless of whether they’re five or fifty-five years old. However, there are also developers who adopt a contrasting mentality. Their games aren’t designed for everyone – instead, they’re created for very specific audiences with very specific preferences. Battle Worlds: Kronos is a prime example of this. This turn-based strategy game is designed explicitly for longtime fans of its genre, featuring hardcore difficulty and massive scale. Its sprawling complexity is sure to please its audience, but it doesn’t do much to appeal to anybody outside this demographic.
