Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
When Rage first came out most of the anger it evoked was for the graphical bugs that plagued the PC version (my own included).

I am pleased to say subsequent patches seem to have sorted that and you should get a bug free experience if you play it now.

The game itself is simple and fun. It is a very good shooter from the makers of Doom.

It may look like Fallout 3 in style, but it is closer to it's 'Doom' roots. Missions are all pretty much 'go there and kill everything you meet' affairs, through a series of corridors and rooms.

It lost 1 star from me for it's very abrupt ending that leaves the plot just hanging in the air. I'm guessing that they are planning a Rage 2.

If so I will happily consider picking it up

id Software were once the kings of the first person shooter. They created the prototype grandaddy of the genre in Wolfenstein 3D, before refining it to perfection with the seminal Doom.

The Quake franchise followed soon after, and the remake of Doom, Doom 3, became their most recent work in 2004. So when Rage was announced, it was greeted with a great deal of excitement.

While I have to admit the game mechanics were enjoyable, aka the actual movement and shooting, and the graphics were quite good in places, the game seemed beset by more glitches and problems than it boasted good points.

First off it had no ending. The final level was utterly dull, and the game just stopped. No end boss, nothing.

Secondly the Tech5 engine had a lot technical problems, from blue and black streaks in the textures, to flickering, to texture pop in, to blurring. It really needs a bit of work on it.

Thirdly, it really wasn't visually much better than Doom 3 - still using the id hallmark of grey and brownstone and dusty atmosphere. It's starting to look slightly dated now.

Next; why was there a jump button? I know that's a strange question to ask, but to my recollection you only actually need to jump on one occasion throughout the whole game for progress. And that's on the final level. It's an otherwise completely redundant function.

The 'option' to accept or decline missions was the stupidest thing ever - unless it was a peripheral side quest, you HAD TO ACCEPT. Otherwise the game didn't progress.

Plus, why did they include that irritating screen shake when shot response which started in Doom 3? The entire game shakes madly when you get hit and you can't see a thing - this isn't a good thing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Completely dull 20 Oct 2011
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
How disappointing... I was expecting way more from the guys who invented the first person shooter genre. What we have here is what feels like a hollow, shallow and cheaper version of Fallout 3 with some Borderlands thrown in.

Graphically it looks stunning (when you finally get it working smoothly, lots of bugs and compatibility issues) But beyond looking pretty, there isn't much good to say. The characters are all flat, repeat one liners after only a single visit which just kills immersion entirely for me. In the age of the giant RPGs (and giant FPSRPG's) this is simply not good enough. ID have fell so far behind. There is even a cliché plot in here right out of 2006. Absolutely nothing to say about the gameplay other than its a safe, generic 'wasteland / bandit' shooting simulator. The plot which holds it all up is made from stickle brix and blu-tac. Evil corporation is oppressing over a post apocalyptic earth while gangs of outlaw bandits roam the wasteland... sound familiar? Yes, you've played this about 10 times since 2005. With good shooter rpgs like Deus Ex Human Revolution this year and classics like Fallout 3 before it, this game is just poor.

It's almost completely flat and forgettable in every way, and the horrendous bugs and compatibility issues make this release a joke. If you absolutely must play it, I recommend waiting until its 8.99 on amazon, which wont be long.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some good ideas, but overal a flawed game. 14 Oct 2011
By TC19
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
First off this game is better then all the 1 star reviews that have been given for it. Yes from a technical standpoint it was a mess on release, but patched and with new drivers these issues were dealt with very prombtly. So now if you buy it so long as you have up to date drivers (good practice on PC with or without Rage) it should be fine.

So the game itself? I think overall it tries to be alot of things and seems to have as a result made some quite serious misses on some of the fundamentals. But before I go into these I want to illustrate where it went right. One place that ID always excel in is graphics and this game is certainly no exception and some of the scenes and backdrops to the game are very elegent and well crafted, populated with a set of genuinely interesting characters (take note makers of the latest Deus Ex!). I found myself genuinely liking some of them Mick the mechanic or hating others the Presenter of Bash TV for instance. This wasn't a 100% success though the resistance characters were hackneyed beyond redemption and the authority, although meant to be a faceless bunch of facists, never really fealt threatening or given any real powerful architype figures who you could really identify with even if it was only to loathe. And to go back to my previous point although as I said the world looked pretty, there wasn't ultimately alot you could do with it. There were only really a few explorable area's and you couldn't really do alot with any of them that felt meaningful. This was the same of the population, you meet a guy do one or two quests for them move on and repeat. Although yes there are more NPC's in the game to interact with it just doesn't really mean that much.
