RAGE (Xbox 360)
From the creators of DOOM
RAGE is the latest game from id Software, the acclaimed designers of such classics as the Wolfenstein, DOOM, and QUAKE series. Eagerly awaited by the gaming community, RAGE is already being touted as one of the industry’s most innovative first-person shooters, winning numerous awards at E3 2010, including ‘Best Overall Game of Show’ from IGN and three ‘Best of E3’ Game Critics Awards including ‘Best Console Game’.
RAGE is a groundbreaking first-person shooter set in the not-too-distant future after an asteroid impacts Earth, leaving a ravaged world behind. You emerge into this vast wasteland to discover humanity working to rebuild itself against such forces as bandit gangs, mutants, and the Authority – an oppressive government regime that has a special interest in you in particular. Featuring intense first-person shooter action, breakneck vehicle combat, an expansive world to explore and jaw-dropping graphics powered by id’s revolutionary id Tech 5 technology, RAGE promises an experience like no other.
Fearing a planet-wide extinction from a massive asteroid headed towards Earth, world leaders are faced with the inexorable task of ensuring human survival. Left with few alternatives, life-sustaining pods filled with select people are buried deep beneath the earth’s surface. You are one of the chosen members of these modern day arks and abruptly enter the RAGE universe after surfacing alone. Leaving you to your own devices to stay alive in a world filled with those who prefer you dead, RAGE combines powerful storytelling with heart-pounding action.
Visceral 1st-person gunplay and exploration
Take on bandit gangs and hordes of mutants using an arsenal of exotic weapons and special items, such as wingsticks, personal turrets, sentry bots, and remote-controlled bomb cars.
Frenetic 3rd-person vehicular mayhem
Burn rubber across the wasteland in your very own super buggy! Upgrade and customize your car with special parts, paint jobs and weapons, then test your skills as you battle four-wheeling bandit clans and participate in deadly races.
Three ways to play for unlimited action
Immerse yourself in a rich story-driven single-player experience, grab a friend for exclusive co-op modes, or go online for all-out multiplayer mayhem.
An expansive experience
Beyond the first-person action and vehicle combat, RAGE offers a world open to explore, with unique characters, side quests, and a compelling storyline.
Graphics that have to be seen to be believed
Powered by id’s cutting-edge new id Tech 5 engine, new Megatexture technology brings the vast wasteland to life in never-before- possible detail with action running at an astounding 60 frames per second.

First impressions very positive, this is an 'id' games release, for those that don't know id games pretty much invented the modern FPS - what they don't know about first person shooters is not worth knowing. This reflects in the gameplay - very smooth, the guns just look and feel fantastic, AI is okay - not outstanding but enough to keep you on your toes.
As for the campaign - well if I say to you futuristic Sci-Fi set on a damaged Earth - 1 or 2 games will leap into your mind, Borderlands and Fallout - and this game sits between both of them, in look and feel it is closer to borderlands, in scale and missions closer to fallout, it doesn't have borderlands colour palatte or some of the more 'zany' type things,(while it isn't colourful like borderlands the actual graphics are really great) and its doesn't have fallouts RPG angle and shear varied enemies/mission types etc
What it has is an pretty large open world sandbox with you following stuctured missions,(+ side missions etc) as you go though the game you gain experience, this experience then allows you to identify more and more useful objects littered around the game and how to use these items to upgrade your weapons, cars, armour etc.Read more ›
About 1 hour into the experience, I found myself feeling very disappointed. The "mega textures" all those reviewers rave about allow for some impressively large scale scenery. BUT this scenery is all backdrop - you can't go anywhere and explore as you'd expect. Instead, the game plays just like Doom 3 and Quake did all those years ago; gone is the free-roaming of more recent games like Borderlands, Oblivion and Fallout 3; open exploration has been replaced by invisible barriers and an ability to jump which is entirely defunct - it's never, ever used since you cannot jump on any low-cut scenery around you.
On top of this, the megatexture itself looks terribly blurry up close; the resolution really is pathetic compared to other games from recent years. Remember the original Halo on Xbox with those awesome-to-look-at-up-close textures? The texture detail in Rage pales in comparison to those. Seriously.
It's not all bad though - the megatextures and high polygon count do allow Id to absolutely cram detail into tight spaces. Some of the indoor locations - of which there are many - look far more varied and interesting than many other game interiors. Plus, despite the frustration of invisible walls, some outdoor locations do look beautiful; the sky in particular looks fantastic, but it's clear that's because it's the only high-res image in the game (that's right, it's a static image not simulated weather).Read more ›
Rage has aspects of the RPG (similar style to Fallout series) but is a true FPS at heart. Shooting aside, you can upgrade weapons, build your own weapons, own, upgrade and race a series of vehicles, etc
The game has low/nil load times which is excellent, as these tend to really hamper gameplay (think Fallout New Vegas). The graphics are fantastic, voice acting and plot is good and the vehicle aspect of the game really help to break up the FPS play somewhat, which is refreshing.
Don't buy this is you want a true RPG because it isn't. If you want a FPS with aspects of RPG then this is the best there is.
The next night i was on my own and i thought ill have a little go on the single player campaign for an hour and go to bed, 4 hours later and i dont want to go to bed at all. Ive got the rage.
I dont like comparing games to other games, i like to take them as they are, but if i had to compare this i would say, take Borderlands, need and mould into a nice smooth ball, add a lager scoop of extra development time, a pinch of Brink to bring out the color, and a large dash of Fallout's, post apocalyptic wasteland. And thats just your base mixture. Now for added flavour add buggyies with machine guns, vendors to sell your junk and coop modes for online and splitsceen and competitive multiplayer.
Of the 4 hours of th campaign ive played ive been able to take out gang hideouts, drive around a wasteland abit shooting other buggies, sneaking around sniping, MUTANT BASH TV!!! (a kinda survival mode), and hunting out collectibles.
There is too much to rage, ive not really played it enough to find any major flaws, in my opinion its the best fps to come out for a long time, better than fallout and borderland.
I hope you enjoy this game as much as i am.
