    Red Faction II

  • Heroic Stars

    The Heroic System is the name given to the morale meter in Red Faction II.


    The Heroic System plays an important part in the games mechanics, influencing the outcome of the games ending cinematic dialogue depending on where your score landed within the system.

    You can influence the system in a few ways, most notably by completing Bonus Objectives - indicated by a green star image that will pop up on the hud when completion is achieved. This infers that you have completed a Heroic Objective or perhaps found a secret route to avoid enemies. The other format of influencing the meter comes from killing civilians or members of the Red Faction, indicated by a red star image that pops up in the same location. This will reduce your score overall. The game has 4 endings in total which change the resulting outcome after the final level is completed. They are called;

    • I Remember Sopot
    • Glory Days
    • Judgement Day
    • On The Road Again
