Just thought I would add my experience with "RAGE" to all the others.
I bought this game in January 2012 for less than £10 through Amazon. It's had a lot of really negative comments but at this price was worth a chance.
Took 40 mins to instal from the 2 DVD's, which Steam promptly patched. No problems at all. One result of the Steam patches is that you can not access the developers console and hence the cheats.
I am now 10 hrs into the game and with all settings at max and v.sync on, the game is rock steady at 60 fps. Not even a hint of any glitches or stuttering, so I really can't understand all the critical comments !!??
The graphics are not quite up to "CRYSIS" level but are still very detailed and pleasing. Facial expressions and interactions are spot on. Plenty of action with choice on how you attack, the "Wingsticks" are a joy to use.
Part way through the game you are invited to install a download for the "SEWERS" part. This is done from the supplied code number quite free and again speedy and no problem at all. You can save the game anywhere into 15 slots and then overwrite as needed. It is pleasing that when you have an accident on your vehicle you are not sent back to the beginning of a level, you just pick up and carry on.
I say, Well done to id Bethesda and thanks for a great game.
